You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Dallas 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 Dallas is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Dallas 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.

Dogs and cats that are healthy and have good temperaments are moved into our adoption program, space permitting. We always have a large variety of pets available. And when you adopt a shelter pet, you're not only getting a loving, lifelong companion, but you're also saving the life of a precious animal. Please come visit us. Your new best friend is just waiting to meet you!

Elliott sponsored a $21 "Run to the Shelter" pet adoption day on Monday. For each pet adoption, Elliott is covering the difference of the cost after the adopting family pays its $21. The event is part of the SPCA of Texas' 'Dogtober' promotion. 21 refers to Elliott's jersey number. (Smiley N.
