Andre the Giant Cat was found roaming around downtown Firplay, Colorado in November 2014. Animal Rescue of the Rockies took him off the streets and brought him to the adoption center at High Paw Pet Supplies.

"Within a month of us having him, people coming in to see him and to visit, the adoption rate for the rescue skyrocketed," said Miyuki Takeda, owner of the store told the Denver Post.

At the time, Andre weighed about 20 pound. According to the vet, he was underweight. When he first came to the rescue, they quickly noticed a lot of signs of him acting like a hybrid.

Part of the store is dedicated to animal adoption. After Andre was adopted by the store, they received more than a dozen applications for adoption.
