Adopt Me: Hank the Tank (adopted)

He comes from a home with a dog and children, so he gets along great with dogs, kids and cats

ElliotLakeToday, in partnership with the Society For Animals In Distress, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi, I’m Hank – a.k.a. Hank the Tank. I have been at the shelter since May 2019.

I'm a large grey tabby and I’m the biggest kitten you will ever meet. I’m only 11 months old but I am a big boy.

When I first got here, I was a very nervous cat and I was afraid of everyone, I used to growl and stick my arms out of the kennel to try and get the girls.

After I was moved from isolation to the cat room, I became a new cat! I’m social, I love people and cats. I come from a home with a dog and children, so I get along great with dogs, kids and cats.

You can find me hanging around my buddy Sully in the cat room and playing with everyone. I have unique markings and everyone who comes into the cat room points it out. I have lots of visitors but no takers.

I will make a wonderful pet, I promise! I just want my forever home. I am ready to go – I have been fully vaccinated, neutered, flea and worm treated.

You can come and meet me Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. or in the evening 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and even on weekends between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
