Cat Adoption Milwaukee WI - Catster
Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Milwaukee, WI – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year. You may be looking at the options, and wondering what the difference is between buying a cat or kitten you see advertised for sale in the Milwaukee newspaper, for instance, and adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter. One main difference is the feeling you get from knowing your choice is actually saving a life. When you adopt a cat or kitten from a Milwaukee-area shelter or rescue group, you’ll not only save the life of the cat you’ll call your new best friend, but you’ll be helping another cat by creating an open space at the shelter. And your new cat will show you vast amounts of gratitude every day! You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Milwaukee pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Milwaukee is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Milwaukee animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained."This time of year, we can get in 30 to 50 cats and kittens a day," Karen Sparapani, the executive director of Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission, said in a news release. "The only way to keep up with that is by adopting or transferring out the same number each day. With all shelters overwhelmed this time of year, we truly count on the community to adopt to keep our population moving through."
