Adopt a Cat

Cat Adoption Policy

Adoptable cats are available for general viewing at both Best Friends Pet Care (temporarily closed for remodeling) and Petco Lake Zurich during their normal business hours. Each cat’s location is stated at the end of their description. “Go Home” adoption appointments are made only on application approval. Please note that Best Friends Pet Care (temporarily closed for remodeling) & Petco are not responsible for processing adoptions, and an appointment MUST be made with a Young at Heart adoption counselor once your application is approved.

To adopt from Young at Heart Pet Rescue, you must:

- Be 21 years of age.

- Have landlord’s permission to have a pet (we will check!)

- Have taken good care of any current or previous pets and have taken them in regularly for check-ups (we’ll speak with your vet!)

- Have an ID with current address.

- Have an adoption application approved by a Young at Heart staff member.

- If you are out of state, you must have had pets prior to adopting from Young at Heart and have a veterinary reference. Some breeds of dogs will be restricted to in-state adoptions only.

Because we strive to make both our adoptable pets AND our adopting families as happy as possible, you may not always be able to adopt the pet you have fallen in love with online. Though it is easy to fall in love with a picture, in real life, you may not be a good match for each other. But don’t worry! We will help you find a dog or cat that matches what you are looking for so that you and your new furry companion can have a happily ever after!

Adoption fee for cats: $75
Adoption fee is waived for a second cat if you adopt a pair!

Your companion will already be spayed or neutered, tested negative for FIV & Feline Leukemia, given all veterinarian recommended vaccines including a 1 year Rabies Vaccine, a 24PetWatch microchip, a senior wellness chemistry panel, and 30 days of free ShelterCare pet insurance. Many of our adoptable companions also receive dental procedure, and any other procedure necessary to get your feline companion ready for adoption! Any known medical or behavioral conditions are listed.

All of our adoptable companions come with a 14-day Money Back Guarantee.

To be considered for one of our adoptable companions, please fill out an adoption application and fax it to 847.890.6404.

Blue

Hey there! I’m 10-year-old “Blue”. I bet you noticed my beautiful baby blues eyes in the photos! If I do say so myself, I’m a very photogenic girl. I’m new to the shelter, so the volunteers are still getting to know me and I’m getting to know the other cats at the center but I am certainly full of personality and enjoy having you scratch my head, cheeks and chin, of course. I’m great with the litter box, enjoy having a few treats and and I love my moist food. But don’t worry, I’m keeping my girlie figure by working out. I am an active girl and love to play! String toys, toy mice and crinkle balls are some my favorite things to play with. Are you looking for a charming and very playful cat? Well, here I am! Feel free to stop by the center and I’d love to meet you, maybe you could be my forever family.

Brutus

Hey there, I’m Brutus and I’m one laid back kind of guy. I found my way to Young at Heart after being surrendered to the city pound and I look forward to the day I can find a family to call mine again. I am good with other kitties but a home with dogs will not do, as I am very afraid of dogs. I’m a snuggly guy but would probably do better in a home with older kids, as I like to dole out my snuggles on my terms. I am a good boy with my litterbox and all reports say I am a very healthy kitty. I love my new friends here at the cat center but I really want a home to call my own where I can hang out, watch the birds and snuggle with my person. Won’t you please consider bringing me home? Please come to the center to meet me, just look for me hanging out in the cat tree!! Love, Brutus.

Calliope

Hi there! I’m Calliope, and when you watch me walk gracefully across the floor, you’ll know why I’m named after the goddess of poetry! Slinky and graceful, my beautiful markings and ballerina-like motion will capture your heart. I’m a very sweet girl, and none of those rumors about calicos having attitude can be applied to me! I am very quiet and affectionate, and enjoy my other feline pals just fine. I’m 13 years old, and I love heated cat beds, fleece blankets, and snuggle time – and if I can make a request, I really do prefer canned cat food. Treats whenever I ask for them are always appreciated, though I am very lady-like and don’t demand them too often. I am waiting for you to come visit me, so please come on out – and if you bring a toy on a string with you, we’ll become fast pals. I’ll show you my ninja-like maneuvers while I capture that toy! If you’ve been missing some sweet poetry in your life, it’s time to meet me!

Cassie

Hello, I’m Cassi, a 14 year old long-haired calico kitty who was recently surrendered to a local shelter after my person passed away. A cold and noisy shelter is no place for a sweet kitty like me and, as they say, a picture says a thousand words. I am so sad and unsure about all the recent changes in my life and my picture says it all. Don’t let that fool you, though, I am the sweetest of kitties and just want to be loved on. The rescue will post more information, and new pictures that showcase my beauty, once get to know me a bit better. So, please stay tuned to hear more about me! Love, Cassi.

To meet Cassie, please contact foster@yahpetrescue.com.

Enzo

SANCTUARY OR FOREVER HOME NEEDED: Hi there! I’m Enzo, and I am an amazing older kitty who was abandoned in a foreclosed home with another kitty who has already found a loving home. I am super sweet and loving, but I do have early stage renal failure, so I need to eat a renal diet and get subcutaneous fluids twice a week. I am very easy to medicate and am so incredibly loving! Being on kidney maintenance like this can help me live many more comfortable, high quality years, and I am hoping to find someone who will love me for the rest of my life while Young at Heart pays for my medical bills. If you are interested in becoming a sanctuary home, please email Jen at foster@adoptaseniorpet.com.

Hi there! I’m Grady, and I am a very sweet and quiet boy who loves to be petted and doted on. I am about 8 years old, Hi there! I’m Grady, and I am a very sweet and quiet boy who loves to be petted and doted on. I am about 9 years old, and though I am a big guy (my friends like to call me the little panther!), I am just a marshmallow at heart. I am great with all kinds of kitties and I love to make friends. I would also be fine with a mellow dog. I love snuggle time and any attention you can give me, I am such a lovebug. I am a healthy boy but I do come with food allergies that require I eat a grain-free and non-chicken diet; the food I need can easily be found in any one of our local natural pet food stores. I am good with my litterbox, and would love a home of my own! I would be a great addition to your family, so please pick me!

Grady is currently located in a private foster home. Please contact Jen at foster@adoptaseniorpet.com for more information.

Hope

My name is Hope! I’m a very sweet 7 year old tabby female tabby cat. If you’re looking for a kitty that likes to run around and be silly, then come by and visit me when I’m out with my feline friends. I like to pretend that I’m going to attack a toy if it moves around in front of me, but I’m just playing! Once I get to know you, I will settle down next to you while you watch TV. I even like to be brushed if it’s quiet and everyone else is sleeping. Most of all, I love to just make my human friends happy, and if you come meet me, I’ll put a smile on your face!

I am a social butterfly, and will happily greet you and your friends and keep you company. I am a fantastic boy, and I can’t wait for a home of my own!

Hi! I’m Pasha, a very sweet 11-year-old kitty who is very special. You see, I am completely blind, and have probably been for a very long time. My eyes were like little raisins, and caused me so much pain and suffering, but Young at Heart rescued me, provided me with a much-needed surgery to remove my dysfunctional and pain-causing eyes, and now I am a happy happy girl! I am so incredibly sweet, and am completely adapted to being blind. I love to be held and love to slowly explore, and love to purr when you pet me. I am ok with other mellow kitties, but for obvious reasons, I need a little time to get to know them so that I know that I can trust them. I am perfect with my litterbox and healthy in every other way. I can’t wait to enjoy the rest of my life pain free!

Hi there! I’m Spike, and I’m the handsomest black kitty you’ll ever meet! I’m a very sweet, very lucky guy, because my time was up at the shelter, and Young at Heart saved me. But I’m even luckier because I have FIV, and a lot of FIV kitties don’t make it out of shelters alive because people think there is something wrong with us. Well, there really isn’t. FIV is only transmitted from kitty to kitty through deep bite wounds, and I’m super friendly AND I don’t have many teeth! I also really like dogs, as I currently live with a German Shepherd and two chihuahuas. We love to snuggle up on the couch, all together! I’m great with my litter box, very affectionate, and an all around cool little man! If you want to meet me, I’d love to meet you!
