Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Cooper and Morrisette the cats:
Cooper is about 3 years old and can usually be found lounging on his easy chair or window perch, but he also likes a good round of playtime. Cooper enjoys the company of other cats, and likes to play tag with his buddies. Cooper has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and current on vaccines.
Morrisette has a great personality and he also has great feet. They’re big mittens with extra toes. He is 1-year old and gets along well with cats, dogs and children. He has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and current on 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.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Norman and Jewel the cats:
Norman is a very handsome, domestic short hair, gray and white adult cat. He is very companionable and loves to have his head scratched. He has a great time lounging on his perch. He will chat with the other cats at the shelter from time to time and is always willing to stretch his neck out for a gentle petting. He is neutered, up to date on routine vaccines/rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and litter box trained.
Jewel is a young adult long-haired beauty. She will acclimate to other animals, but may take a little time. She is the type of cat who knows what she wants and when she wants it. She is spayed, up to date on routine vaccines/rabies, 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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Valerie the cat and Scooby the dog:
Valerie is a young, female tortoiseshell mix. She is super playful and outgoing. She loves to run and play with her toys. She would make a great family companion to any household.
Scooby is a 4-year-old, male Shih Tzu. He was rescued from the animal shelter after his owner had to surrender him because she lost her job. He is good with other dogs and is already neutered, housetrained, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm tested. Scooby has lots of energy, so he must have a fenced-in yard. He would do best in a home with no small children because he is so small.
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.
