Story
If you're a fan of the song "What the world needs now is love sweet love," then I'm your guy! My main gig? Spreading love! You'll often find me tailing the shelter volunteers, weaving through their legs, letting them know I'm here for a scratch or a cuddle. 🐾 Picture this: I'm a big dude, orange and white, with the roundest face and the chubbiest cheeks you've ever seen, and my fur? Soft as a cloud. Who could ask for more? 😺 Why, I'm practically perfect in every way! Now, here's the lowdown: I've had a run-in with urinary tract crystals before, but no worries! The amazing folks here have sorted me out with a special kibble diet (easy to grab at your go-to pet store). Since then, smooth sailing—no issues whatsoever. 🍲 So, if your heart's yearning for a bit more love, swing by the shelter and say hello. I'm here to make all your love-filled dreams come true! ❤️ Peter does require a special diet of prescription food to ensure he doesn’t develop crystals.

Story
We’re looking to rehome our cat Peach as we suspect our toddlers allergy symptoms are due to her. She loves watching out windows especially if there are trees, animals and birds outside. She is an independent and friendly cat, no issues being around small children as you can see. She is friendly and loves a good head scratch and even belly scratch. She isn’t a lap cat tho but likes to be nearby if you’re hanging out. She loves a good cardboard box or basket. Mouse toy and feather on a string toy. She comes with everything including automatic litter box and litter box cabinet and any extra litter we have. She eats once a day dry food, and occasionally wet food because she easily gains weight but is highly food motivated. Loves treats. I will provide all extra food, bowls, treats. I suspect she will be timid in a new home for the first few days as that is how she act after we moved but will warm up quickly. She is only 3-4 years old. So she is still a very young lady!

Story
Precious is a sweet, black cat about 12 years old. She is very friendly and follows you around hoping for kisses, pets, and headbutts. Being that she is the sweetest girl in the world, it’s impossible not to oblige!     Making her even cuter, Precious is missing teeth, so her tongue sticks out. It doesn’t affect her appetite or love for life. Her ear tips are a little curled over as a reminder of the hard outdoor life she once had. Now, she loves her inside life and all the attention she gets. You won’t regret having her in your life!    All cats/kittens are:   -spayed or neutered   -up to date on vaccines   -flea and parasite free    -micro-chipped  Kittens can be adopted by filling out an application at: www.catvando.org/adoption.  Please send an inquiry with any questions!

Story
Meet Katie, a warn and loving, black cat who will greet you first thing when you get home.  She is someone to tell you all about her day and all that you missed. She’ll be ready to jump into your lap and settle in for the night. She’s the perfect, remote "co-worker!” If you've said wanted any of these in your pet, it’s time to adopt Katie.   Katie is about 5 years old, rescued from a tree in Hillside. Although one can't be sure what got her up in the tree, we are indebted to the firefighter that scaled the tree to bring her to safety!  We are sure Katie chatted the whole way down from the top branches with her rescuer.  Katie is dog-friendly and would delight older kids with her playful antics. She is cat-selective in that she co-exists with cats, but she will tell you that  she most prefers people.  Katie will reward her family with unlimited happiness and lots of head-butts. Her black coat means she will go with all of your house decor!  And you'll never have an empty lap again.  Apply now to meet her and bring her home to your family.    All cats/kittens are:   -spayed or neutered   -up to date on vaccines   -flea and parasite free    -micro-chipped  Kittens can be adopted by filling out an application at: www.catvando.org/adoption.  Please send an inquiry with any questions!

Story
Disclaimer: This animal is not in Anderson custody. and is a courtesy post to help a member of the community rehome directly without shelter intervention. Any adoption inquiries should be directed to the owner at Ellie2979@yahoo.com or (630) 391-3963. Anderson Humane makes no guarantees regarding medical or behavioral status of this animal, and the current owner is solely responsible for disclosing any challenges or concerns. Luke is so friendly, and quirky. I found him at 2 years old as a stray. No telling what he got into before that but I was told he might've fallen off a cargo truck from Georgia. He wasn't fixed and had worms. He was warming up one day under my ex-boyfriend's truck and then he became mine. FF 3 years. Luke is a charming, large, and fully healthy 5 year old and 1 month male cat. When inside, his favorite thing to so is sprawl out while he and his human watch tv. He is the best co-pilot.!! He also likes to daydream by the window, listening for critters or birds. When outside, he likes sprawling out on the cool ground, walking in gardens, and picking at plants. He has gotten loose 2 or 3 times, where I found him within the same day in the neighbors gardens, and once he just walked back to the front door where his food and water were. I brush him routinely with Burts Bees waterless shampoo. He is a very sheddy orange cat. The vet says American shorthair but I don't know where the "short hair" classification comes from because I could go on brushing him and removing hair from him for days. He acts like he doesn't like to be brushed but he does. He loves being a pretty boy. As long as you keep him clean he shouldn't provoke any allergy problems. His favorite toys and cat beds are anything colorful that is truly unique, just like him. He like crunchy treats and that is usually how I care for his dental health. I have also used minty gel which he really enjoys. He likes Shiba catfood, and meow mix dry food. If you mix it together for him that's just the best. Praying Luke and I find a forever home give him the stimulation, safe environment, and needs to be met that he deserves. Currently, my household has adopted a pitbull who is untrained and uncrated. And Luke is left for long periods of time, often days, in the master bedroom, where the dog barks and pushes/knocks at the door. I'm also 5 months pregnant and just want to find the right home and situation for him before the baby comes and there is even less I can do.... Please consider adopting this cutie!! It would mean the world to me!
