Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Feather the cat and Sid the dog:
Feather is a very handsome Domestic Short Hair, solid white male. He is an extra-large boy who once had a home but somehow ended up as the neighborhood stray. He is a very sweet and affectionate boy. He loves to perch on his pillow while being brushed. Feather is hoping someone will notice him so he will have a forever home for the Holidays! He is neutered, up to date on routine vaccines, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
Sid is a medium sized Chihuahua/Basenji mix who was given up to the pound when his owners broke up and neither wanted the responsibility of a dog. He was impetuously purchased from one of the few pet stores still selling dogs as merchandise, then no longer wanted within the year. Sid is a friendly dog who seems to love all other animals. According to the former owner, he loves to be around cats. Sid passed his temperament test and loves to cuddle. Sadly though, he is not adjusting to life in a cage and will run in circles chasing his own tail until he gets dizzy. He has even begun biting the tip of his tail when he chases it. Sid simply loves to socialize with people and isn't happy being shut in a cage. He will be neutered, up to date on routine shots and heartwork tested prior to adoption.
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 Cora and Emmett the cats:
Cora is a sweet-natured girl full of toes! She has 25 toes. The world record for extra toes is 28, so this special girl comes pretty close. She is a sweet cat who came to our rescue after being brought to the shelter with her four kittens. All her babies have found a home andnow it's her turn. Cora has been spayed, dewormed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on all of her vaccines.
Shy little Emmett was turned in to the shelter as a baby, having been caught in a live trap as a stray. He spent six months at the shelter with lots of other cats, but due to his shy nature he kept getting passed by. Shelter to Home stepped in and has provided him with a loving foster home where he spent the first week hiding under the bed. He is slowly learning about life in a home and is showing his appreciation for the kindness and love he receives by returning it with lots of purrs. He is even becoming a great lap cat! Emmett likes to play with toys and other cats. He will need a quieter home with a person or family willing to be patient and give him the time he needs to feel at home. Emmett has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on all of his 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 Minne the dog and Soks the cat:
Minne is a sweetheart who was found abandoned in a trailer home and was just skin and bones when WAG took her in. As of her last vet appointment on November 26th she had gained 10 pounds. She has a skin infection and ear infection which she is on medication for. She had blood work done, was dewormed, treated for fleas and completed fecal and heart worm tests. She will be vaccinated, spayed and micro chipped as soon as we can get some weight on her and she is well enough. She is only about 2-years-old and weighs only 53 pounds. Minnie loves people and wants to be with humans as much as possible. Skinny Minnie will need a fenced yard and a home without cats. She is fine with other large dogs. She is house-trained and knows sit, down, stay and shake. Minnie is crate-trained but does fine out of the crate as well. She should be ready for adoption the end of December.
Soks 5th Avenue is a very playful cat, especially with string toys. Soks will be shy until she gets to know you but is ready for her nice home where she will be spoiled rotten! This gorgeous girl is up to date on all shots and is about 3-years-old.
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.
