Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Jingle the dog and Jewel the cat:
Jingle is an adult American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier mix. She passed her temperament test with all A's. She's a very affectionate dog and was good with the other dogs being temperament tested. She is quoted as being "a very sweet girl' by Downriver Dogs Obedience Training. All of our the volunteers just love her! Jingle came in with a moderate, non-contagious skin infection due to neglect and is in the midst of treatment now. She will be available to go home shortly. She will be spayed, up to date on routine shots and rabies and tested for heartworm prior to adoption. She would do best in a home without cats.
Jewel is a domestic longhair cat. She will acclimate to other animals, but may take a little time. She loves to be doted on, but with her kind of beauty, it should be expected. She is spayed, up to date on routine shots and rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, 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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Jak Jak the dog and Athena the cat:
Jak Jak is an adorable Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier Mix. He is 3 1/2 years old, loves to play and is great with other small dogs. He has not been around large dogs. He loves to play with kids and he is very cuddly. Jak Jak loves to go for walks and he is very food motivated. He also knows how to dance. Tell him "dance" and he stands and goes in circles! Jak Jak is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Athena is a domestic longhair gray and white cat. She is about 10 weeks old and was rescued from a garage in Garden City. She is starting to play now and is doing great.
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.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Cal and Ruby the cats:
Cal was saved from an overcrowded shelter. He is a stunning cat with a lot of playful energy. He needs a home that will play with him. He loves to climb a cat tree, hide in a tunnel or play in a box. And when the mood strikes him, he loves to snuggle. Cal is about a year old. He has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, given his rabies and booster shots and dewormed. He also is microchipped.
Ruby is an incredibly beautiful long hair red dilute tabby with the most gorgeous green eyes you have ever seen. She is about 2 years old. She is a very pleasant and independent cat. If you're looking for a cat who likes to simply do her own thing and not constantly bug you for attention, she is the one for you. Ruby would do best in a home without any other cats or dogs. She loves to be queen of her castle. She has been spayed, 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.
