Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Helen and Fritz the cats:
Helen is a big beautiful Tortoiseshell girl who is a very gentle cat. She came in as a stray but loves to be loved and paid attention to. We know she must have been someone's loved companion at some point in her life. She also loves to be talked to. She will let you tell her anything and will give you an understanding look. She is spayed, current on routine shots, dewormed, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia. She would love a home for the holidays!
Ozzy is a stunning Savannah cat and Tabby mix with a rosetted brown tabby coat pattern. He is a very friendly cat, almost dog like in demeanor. He is also a special needs cat because he happens to have the FIV virus, which cannot be transferred to people or dogs. It's a feline virus only and not easy to transmit even to other cats. This link is from one of the best FIV cat sanctuaries in the state. It will provide any cat lover with valuable information about this virus. He is neutered, current on routine shots, dewormed 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 Hershey the dog and Molly the cat:
Hershey is a low maintenance, friendly little guy who truly looks like a Chocolate Lab on Dachshund legs. His shoulders only stand about 12-inches high. He currently lives with a large dog, a small dog and cats. He is also good with kids but has not learned to play with them. However, he has learned to sit for his food and stay in the back seat of a car in just under 2 weeks, so he is a quick learner. He also can be recalled when off leash but will chase wildlife before returning! Hershey was rescued from a shelter without any information about
his past. He has a distinct limp that does not appear to hurt and probably comes from a former injury that healed incorrectly or was neglected. Hershey has been neutered and is current on all vaccines.
Molly was rescued from a local shelter where she was given care for a broken pelvis after being hit by a car. She has healed very well and is ready to find her new home. She is a typical vocal Siamese and a super loving cat! She loves to be held and will head-butt you under your chin. Molly has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and current on all 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 Roo the dog and Baxter the cat:
Sweet Momma Roo is a very gentle and loving dog that wants to be with you at all times. Roo was rescued with her seven tiny puppies at the end of November. They were abandoned in a foreclosed home. She is a very skinny, medium sized dog at only 33 pounds. When we first rescued her you could see her ribs, hip bones and backbone. This sweetheart and her babies are lucky to be alive. Roo has just finished nursing her babies and now needs to gain a lot more weight before she will be spayed and vaccinated. She about 3 years old, has a beautiful reddish brown coat and gets along very well with other dogs and cats. Roo will be ready for adoption in January.
Baxter is a cute little guy! He is about 7-months-old and will be shy at first until he gets to know you. He is a laid back kind of kitten, nothing seems to bother him! Baxter is ready to go home with you today.
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.
