Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Sargeant the dog and Blaise the cat:
Sargeant is a large Labrador Retriever mix who came to the pound as a stray. His temperament testing showed that he is a good dog, but is dominant. So he will need a home with people who have experience with large dogs. He would do well in a home without young children or cats. He will be neutered, up to date on routine shots and heartworm negative before he is adopted.
Blaise is a beautiful domestic long hair orange and white cat. She was so severely matted when she came to the pound, that most of her coat had to be cut away. She is much healthier and happier now. Blaise gets along with other cats. She isn't around dogs much at the pound, but whenever she sees one, Blaise tends to accept their presence with grace. She's the kind of cat who prefers to be treated like a princess. She is spayed, up to date on routine shots, feline AIDS and leukemia negative and litter box trained.
The Wyandotte Animal Pound is located at 1170 Grove St. Adoptions are done 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all the pound's adoptable animals can be found on its website. The pound also can be contacted through email.
Vickie Taylor, vice president of WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Salsa the dog and Brayden the cat:
Salsa is an adorable Pit Boxer mix. She always wants to be with you and will give you sweet little kisses. She is the type of dog who will follow you everywhere and will always want to cuddle. She likes lots of attention and would make someone a great companion. She is about 6 months old. Her fur is black with a brown hue and she has white ticking on her chest and tiny white on the tips of her toes. She weighs about 40 pounds and should be a medium-sized dog when fully grown, maybe about 50 to 60 pounds. She loves to play with toys and other animals. She would not do well in a home where she will be locked up eight hours a day when her new family is away at work. She is very playful, spunky and requires a home with a fenced-in yard. She is crate trained and housebroken. Salsa is good with children, but we recommend children 9 and older because she does like to nibble.
Brayden is a gorgeous 12-week-old kitten. He was rescued from a local animal shelter and is now looking for that special place to call home. Brayden loves to play with his toys and gets along great with other cats.
Anyone interested in adopting an animal from WAG is encouraged to visit the group's website and fill out an application online. The group's animals are on display every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Livonia PetSmart, 13150 Middlebelt. As not all animals are brought up each week, potential adopters are encouraged to email the group to make arrangements for a particular animal to be available to be seen. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all the group's adoptable animals can be found on its website.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Tabitha and Eliza the cats:
Tabitha is a nearly 1-year-old beautiful fluffy cat. She is soft and has a great personality. One of her trademark characteristics is her tail. It's like a plume. She does well with other cats and is quite social. Tabitha has been spayed, tested negative for feline leukemia and AIDS, current on shots and is dewormed.
Eliza ended up at the pound when her owner passed away. When she was out of time there, we were able to help out. She has a cute ring on her tail. She is a very snuggly lap cat who is quiet and low energy. We don't know Eliza's age; however, her teeth and energy level give a good indication that she's probably about 10 years old. She's great with other cats and gets along with dogs. She is spayed, current on vaccines and tested negative for feline leukemia and AIDS.
The Shelter to Home Pet Adoption Center is located at 266 Oak St. Adoptions are done by appointment only. The Pet Adoption Center is open from noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays for tours and visiting with some of our adoptable cats in a home-like setting. Cats also are on display in the Luv-A-Pet Center at the Canton PetSmart, 41856 Ford Road. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all Shelter to Home's adoptable animals can be found on its website. Shelter to Home can be contacted by phone at 734-556-3135 and through email.
