5 Great Reasons to Adopt a Shelter Cat

Did you know that June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month? This is one cause that we are truly happy to support. We love seeing cats go to loving homes! If you are considering bringing a new feline pal into your family, please consider adopting a shelter cat. In this article, a Lansing, MI vet discusses adopting kitties from shelters.

Save A Life

Every year, millions of kitties find themselves in shelters. Cats can end up in shelters for a variety of reasons. Many have been lost or abandoned. Some have been surrendered, often through no fault of their own. Unfortunately, many of these lovable pets are running out of time. Giving one of these kitties a new home may not change the world, but it will definitely change that cat’s world. It’s a truly wonderful and rewarding feeling to know that you’ve saved an animal’s life.

Promote Animal Welfare

Adopting from shelters is a great way to promote good animal welfare. The fees you pay for Fluffy’s adoption will help the shelter care for other kitties in need. Also, the space your new pet leaves empty will soon be filled by another cute furball. Plus, you’ll know that your money isn’t stuffing the pockets of a callous retailer.

Choose The Right Pet

Shelters have all sorts of kitties to choose from. If you are looking for a cat of a certain color, breed, or age, there’s a good chance you’ll find the purrfect pet waiting for you. Of course, even if you don’t have any prerequisites, you may very well still find yourself taken by a cute furry face. It’s truly amazing how quickly people and animals can bond!

Make A Friend

While we love to joke about how aloof cats are, the truth is that they can be very lovable and affectionate. Our feline friends seem to know when they’ve been rescued, and often absolutely adore their saviors. Fluffy may repay your kindness with purrs, snuggles, and unconditional love.

Save Money

Adopting from a shelter may also be good for your wallet. Shelters are often much cheaper than breeders or pet stores. You may even save on veterinary care, as shelter pets are generally spayed or neutered, and current on vaccinations and parasite control products.
