“In the middle of a world that had always been a bit mad, the cat walks with confidence.”

Here comes Pete, a handsome, 3-year-old gray, white and black domestic shorthair!
His green eyes focus in on you as he stares you in the face, ready to tell you his purpose: Please don’t leave KCAC’s cat room without him.
Owner-surrendered due to the lack of attention his former family felt he deserved, Pete’s needs are simple: a warm lap, some cuddling, a few petting sessions and a new family that is willing to recognize what a fabulous little man he is.
Super sweet, he enjoys getting held, but he’s not overly insistent in his demands. He does well with other cats, but is willing to spend much of his day by himself just as long as he can have some lap-time with some gentle petting thrown in.
If your home is missing the confident, calm presence of a soulful feline, then your next stop should be Kane County Animal Control. Pete is waiting for you!
It must have been Adopt-a-Husky Week last week because both of KCAC’s Huskies, Sophia and Sage, found their forever homes! After so many false starts, Sage’s new family is prepared to put in the required training hours she will need so she can finally have that forever home.
Sophia, the 9-month old red-husky mix was adopted by a family that is more than capable of keeping her energy at a trainable level as they teach her the rules of the house.
In both cases, there was no shortage of the amount of love shared between humans and canines. Congratulations, you two!
