My story

Meet Sterling
Sterling is a beautifully striped tiger kitty with the sweetest personality, born in February of 2022. His mom was rescued by a local hero, but she could not care for the 5 kittens so she asked us to help. Sterling, along with his siblings Stella, Sasha, Simon and Sawyer, is doing great! They have all responded to love and attention and are super sweet and affectionate. Sterling will further thrive in a home environment. Sterling will be neutered before being adopted.

Why adoption is a great option

Sterling, a Sautee 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 Sautee, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Sautee.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sautee 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 Sautee 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 Sautee paves the way for another one to be saved.
