New Beginnings: Rodger Gets A Home

Rodger was the Klamath Animal Shelter’s longest staying resident until he was adopted on Saturday at the Grand Opening of the shelter’s new facility.


Roger is a mellow tempered and handsome tabby about 7 years old, who came to the Klamath Humane Society’s Klamath Animal Shelter in Klamath Kalls, OR in December of 2010. Cats and dogs came to the shelter and left for new homes, yet Rodger always remained behind.

The shelter tried to find sweet Rodger a home but no one wanted him enough to adopt him and make him part of their family. Rodger was one of the featured pets at the shelter’s Fur Ball in April, yet he continued to stay at the shelter afterward.

Last weekend the shelter held a Grand Opening event with a ribbon cutting and open house to celebrate the recent opening of their new building. Shortly after the doors opened on Saturday, Rodger was finally on his way to his new home. His adopter said she thought he would make a good friend.

    People shouldn’t over look older cats in shelters. They still make great companions for many many years! (Not that 7 is even that old.) They deserve homes just as much as any other cat.
