6 Great Reasons to Adopt a Shelter Cat

June 1, 2018

June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month! If you are ready to bring a new kitty into your home, please consider getting Fluffy from a shelter. There are some great reasons to adopt a shelter cat! A Thorold, ON vet lists a few of them below.

Save A Life

Animal overpopulation is a serious problem, and nowhere is it more evident than in animal shelters. There are far too many sweet cats that desperately need loving homes. Many of these cute kitties have a very short time to get adopted. Saving the life of a shelter pet is a wonderful act of kindness, and one that can be very rewarding.

Help Other Pets

When you get your feline pal from a shelter, you’ll also be helping other pets. The money you spend on Fluffy’s adoption costs will help the shelter care for other homeless kitties. Plus, the space your new furball vacates will soon be filled by another cute pet in need of a forever home.

Find A Great Match

Kitties all have their own unique personalities. Whether you are looking for a bouncy, adorable kitten; a playful adult cat; or a sweet senior feline, you’ll be able to find the purrfect pet in shelters.

Meet N Greet

When you adopt from a shelter, you’ll be able to spend some time with Fluffy before making a final decision. This is very important! Adopting a cat is a lifelong commitment, and definitely not something to take lightly.

Save Money

Going to a shelter is much cheaper than getting your furry buddy from a breeder or pet store. If you are able to adopt more than one kitty, you may get even more of a discount. You may also save on veterinary care costs, because most shelter pets are fixed and current on vaccinations and parasite control.

Make A Friend

Being in a shelter can be very scary for a kitty! Cats know when someone has helped them, and often repay their saviors with purrs, cuddles, and unconditional love and loyalty. It’s a wonderful experience to see a scared, sad kitty blossom into a happy, purring pet. After all, the love of a cat is truly one of life’s most precious gifts!
