Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Boston is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Boston 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.Boston Transport Volunteer: Volunteers are needed to provide ground transportation of healthy dogs, cats and other pets to and from our partner shelters and rescues helping them to find their loving forever homes!
