Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Iggy the cat and Lady the dog:
Iggy is a handsome domestic short hair black and white cat. He is sensitive, gorgeous and very sweet Iggy was once a stray who was having a hard time defending himself from other animals. He just isn't a fighter. He is neutered, litter box trained, current on his vaccines and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
Lady is a beautiful, young Chocolate Labrador Retriever. She was abandoned at a local vet office because her owners didn't want her anymore. She is a ball of youthful energy who tries her best to please people. She will need a family who is willing to spend the time she needs for training and exercise. She is spayed, up to date on routine shots and tested negative for heartworm.
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 Mae and Ernie the cats:
Mae is beautiful and has a great personality as well. She has a unique meow and loves to chat with you. She gets along well with other cats and doesn’t mind being around dogs. This young 1- to 2-year-old sweetheart is a nice balance of wanting some loving and scratches, and also spends some of her day gazing out the window to watch the birds or curled up in a soft corner taking her daily nap. She has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, given her rabies and booster shots and dewormed.
Ernie is a 7-year-old declawed cat. He is very outgoing, talkative and affectionate. Ernie was a bit shy at first, but now that he knows dogs won't hurt him, he's out and about and looking for attention. He’s a lap cat and a good snuggler. Ernie needs a family who will monitor his eating so that he can shed a few pounds. He currently weighs 16 pounds. He is very active and is slimming down just from his increased activity level. He hasn't really shown any interest in playing with other cats, but he has very good social skills and gets along with everyone. Ernie is current on vaccines, has been neutered and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
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 Robbie the cat and Buddy the dog:
Robbie is about 6 years old and does not like other cats or dogs. He likes to be brushed and petted, but only for a few minutes. He also likes to sleep in bed with people, but not very close. He’s his own independent self.
Buddy is a happy and sweet Pit Bull Terrier Mix. A wonderful family who took the time to feed him and get him out of cold found him in Detroit. After many days of trying to find the owner, the family contacted WAG to see if we could help find him a home. He is very young, maybe 1 ½ years old. He has a great temperament and weighs about 65 lbs to 70 lbs. He is crate trained. He will soon be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and heartworm tested. One minor condition he currently has are raw paw pads but even so, Buddy's tail never stops wiggling!
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.
