My story

Sharkey was adopted from Paws in October 2017 as a friendly 5 month old kitten (see 4th photo). He was returned in January of 2019 for aggressive behavior. We are evaluating him at the moment and hoping we can figure out what happened to cause the marked change in behavior. He has settled down a lot and is letting people pet him once he knows and trusts them. Please use caution and approach him slowly.

Why adoption is a great option

Sharkey, a Norwalk Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Norwalk, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Norwalk.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norwalk already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Norwalk breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norwalk paves the way for another one to be saved.
