Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Chatter and Wilbur the cats:
Chatter is a handsome Domestic Shorthair Tabby. He showed up as a stray, but is a very affectionate and chatty cat. He has a very distinctive coat with beautiful colors and even has a goatee. He is a playful and loving cat that is litter-box trained. He has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and has been given age appropriate vaccinations.
Wilbur is a very young Tuxedo mix that came into the pound as a stray at the height of kitten season. He was quite shy at first, but has come around nicely. He is a sweet and loving kitten that shouldn't have to grow up in a cage at the pound. He really needs a family to grow old with. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia 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.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Carlyn the dog and Nelley the cat:
Meet Carlyn. He is a Shar Pei/Irish Setter mix that is about a year and a half old. Carlyn was rescued from an overcrowded animal shelter, where he was passed over by everyone who came to the shelter because of his hair loss, which was due to fleas. Carlyn has been bathed and treated for fleas and his hair is growing in nicely. He is very smart; he can sit, shake, speak on command, and he is housebroken. Carlyn is super friendly and gets along with everyone. He is not a dog who likes to spend time in the yard unless his family is in the yard with him. Carlyn is neutered and current on his vaccinations. His adoption donation includes all of his vet work.
Nelley is a beautiful young girl with all of the traits of an Abyssinian. She is very loyal and loving and is a superb lap warmer. If you were looking to rescue a cat, she would be a great option. Nelley was brought into the pound as a stray and was very shy with people. She was named Nervous Nelley because she was startled at every little movement and noise. Nelley has come a long way and has been ready for her own home for a long time. This little one is very affectionate and loving once she knows she is safe. Nelley gets along great with the resident small dog and all of the other foster cats. She has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on all of her vaccines.
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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Jake the dog and Delaware the cat:
Jake is an adorable 10-month-old Maltese mix. Little Jake was born without a radius in his left front paw, which makes his paw flip up. The vet has examined his leg and determined that he does not need to have his leg removed now, but may in the future. The deformity does not stop this little guy from getting around, as Jake is a very happy and friendly little guy. He weighs about 8 pounds and is housebroken, up to date on shots, neutered and micro chipped. Jake would do best in a home without small children or large dogs. The ideal owner for Jake would also have a fenced yard and a human companion for him during the day. He loves to be with his family. This sweetheart will be at the Livonia PetSmart on Saturdays from 11-3. Come up and meet this cutie.
Meet Delaware! This pretty calico actually came from the state of Delaware. She is 8 years old, has declawed front paws and is in need of a home. Delaware is a laid back girl that enjoys being petted and looking out the window. Could she be the gal for you?
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.
