Adopt a Domestic Short Hair

Domestic Short Hair Cat

Sombra the Cat needs a home

Thank you for stopping by to see me!   Please check below to see what upcoming adoption events I will be attending or apply here for a private meeting.  If you have other questions about me you can email Underdog Rescue at <[email protected]> ***Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as sometimes our emails end up there***

Sombra (Shadow in Spanish) has velvet black fur and orange eyes. He has a wounded tail - the tip is without fur and looks like he was injured as a kitten, but it doesn't bother or limit him physically. 

Sombra came to his foster family as an extremely shy and timid kitten.  He had a hard time even moving out from behind the furniture to eat or play with his foster brothers.

Over the past few months, he has grown to trust, snuggle and show affection to his foster mom and the children in the home.  He is an independent kitty, but he welcomes love and he very playful.

Like many kitties up for adoption, he is sometimes unsure of people and doesn't like quick hand movements by his head and loud noises will send him hiding. He also does not like being put into a kennel, so allowing him to go in of his own accord is the best option.


He is totally litter box trained. 

He has no knowledge of dogs, but may be adaptable with the right dog dynamic.  

Sombra is a loving and sweet kitty who would thrive in a home with other kitties to play with. He is comfortable with children who have knowledge on how to be gentle and handle pets.  



Adoption events are updated as the foster home RSVP's to attend. Check back for updates on which events they will be attending. Please understand that all of our pets are in volunteer foster homes and sometimes "life" happens and the foster family cannot make it to their scheduled adoption event. If you are traveling from a far distance to meet a specific animal, please understand we cannot guarantee event attendance. You may wish to consider applying and setting up a private appointment. Private appointments are only scheduled after an application is submitted and approved.



The first step in our process is to complete an online adoption application on our website:


Note: In most circumstances Underdog Rescue will only adopt within 60 miles of Minneapolis, MN. 

All of our foster animals can be seen by appointment with an approved adoption application. Contact us at if you have further questions.



All of our animals are fostered in individual homes or doggie daycare facilities. While they are in our care, they are part of our families and given lots of love. We work on training, crate-training and socialization prior to adoption. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves. If you have an interest and ability to be a foster home, please visit our website

 and fill out a foster application.



Nutrition is vital to the rehabilitation and life-long health of our pets.  All of our foster animals are fed a premium diet such as NutriSource, Canidae, Orijen, Nature's Variety, Fromm, Pure Vita, Stella and Chewy's, Primal, or balanced raw diet.  All adopters are required to continue providing premium diets for the life of the animal.
