Adopting a Shelter Kitty

Are you considering adopting a new cat? It just so happens that June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month! Adopting from a shelter is a great way to find your new feline friend. Read on as an Upper Arlington, OH vet discusses some great reasons to look for Fluffy in a shelter.

Save A Life

Shelters are overflowing with sweet, lovable kitties that desperately need to find loving homes. Because of overpopulation, the amount of cats awaiting adoption is astronomical. Many of these adorable cats are running out of time! By rescuing that one special feline, you’ll be giving your new furry friend a second chance, and changing Fluffy’s life forever.

Help Homeless Pets

Adopting your new cat from a shelter will benefit many animals, not just the kitty you take home. Fluffy’s spot will quickly be filled by another cute, homeless furball. Plus, the money you spend on adoption fees will help keep the shelter operating.

Find A Purrfect Match

While some people only need to take one look at a kitty to know they’ve found the right furball, this isn’t always the case. Shelters have dozens, if not hundreds, of adorable felines to choose from. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll find your purrfect pet in a shelter.

Meet N Greet

Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment. Before you bring your new kitty home, you’ll be able to spend some private time with her. This will help ensure that you’ve found the right cat for you and your household. This is very important! Being in a shelter is quite stressful for our furry friends. It would be very sad for Fluffy to be adopted, only to be returned.

Save Money

Going to a shelter is often much cheaper than adopting from a breeder or pet store. Many shelters include some standard veterinary services, such as vaccines and spay/neuter surgery, in their adoption fees. This alone can save you quite a bit of money!

Make A New Friend

When you adopt a shelter cat, you’re making a new friend for life. Fluffy will definitely keep a smile on your face with her cute antics and affectionate cuddles. A kitty’s love is a very precious gift in our book!
