Where to Adopt a Cat in Lake County


There are thousands of homeless animals in Lake County waiting for families to adopt them. Humane organizations in Lake County and around the country want to spread the word about shelter cats during June. There are hundreds of organizations and shelters that service Lake County, and adopting a cat can be a simple trip to your local Petsmart or Petco. Both of these major national retailers recognize the problems of pet overpopulation and homelessness. As a part of their business model, they have chosen to offer shelter animals for adoption in-store rather than cats or dogs from breeders.

Adopt a Shelter Cat

Many shelter cats have all of their medical needs taken care of and are already litter box trained. Shelters and rescue groups work very hard to ensure that the right cat is paired with the right family; their goal is a successful and lasting adoption. Adding a cat to your family can be very rewarding, and helping to care for animals is a great lesson in responsibility for kids of all ages.

If you would consider opening your home to a kitty in need, check out Petfinder, where you can search thousands of adoptable cats by location and other criteria. Whether you choose to start from scratch with a kitten or adopt a deserving senior cat, rescuing a pet is very rewarding. This month, next month, or whenever your family is ready to bring a pet into your home, consider adoption first!
