Take Home A Shelter Cat
Many people find joy in saving the life of a shelter animals or adopting pets from shelters. Many shelter pets were once cherished members of a family and often make great pets with love, safety and a little training while others were born to strays and have never known a safe and loving home.
- Many shelters spay and neuter cats before adoption
- Many rescue cats are healthy and current on vaccinations
- Many rescue cats get along with children and other house pets
- Many rescue cats are already house broken/litter-boxed trained
In the United States, about 4 to 6 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year and shelters are often overpopulated with displaced animals. Adopting a cat from a shelter helps solve the overpopulation problem of displaced pets. Cat shelters can have a mix of adoptable breeds, in different sizes and ages.
Many factors play into the role as to why shelter cats are homeless:
- Family cannot care for them anymore
- Owner has passed away
- Family moved to a place that does not allow pets
- Allergies/Health Conditions
It’s important to keep in mind some animals come to shelters in good health and are just grateful for a loving, forever home.
