Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Marguerite and Tallulah the cats:
Marguerite is a beautiful and very friendly stray. She is a Domestic Short Hair/Oriental Short hair mix. She has a cute little pixie face. She is also a very humorous cat who we hope has a home of her own for the holidays. She can even play ball as well as any dog. She would be a great addition to an active family. She is spayed, current on routine shots, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
Tallulah is a very sweet and pretty Domestic Short Hair Tabby. She was left at the pound with her brother, Boo. She is very playful, but also very loving. Boo was adopted, but Tallulah is still waiting for a new family. She is spayed, current on routine shots, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
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 Melissa and Cole the cats:
Melissa is about 5 months old and full of life. She is very sweet and friendly and loves to play with the other animals. She is such a joy to have around and is always seeking you out to play or get attention. She will be a great companion. Melissa has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on all of her vaccines.
Cole is 7 years old and weighs about 14 pounds. He is an extra large feline. He is cautious, but likes to spend time with his family. He likes other animals and loves to look out the window and bird watch. He uses his litter box faithfully and will use the cat scratchers in the house and not the furniture. Cole has been neutered and is 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 Friskie the cat and Dirty Harry the dog:
Friskie used to living in a quiet home with only adults, but would probably adjust well to having kids around. She is 2 years old and still likes to play with toys. Friskie is a beautiful cat with lots of love to give someone. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccines.
Dirty Harry is a 9-month-old Schnoodle. He is happy and loves to lean against people to be petted. He is a little shy to begin with, but after he gets to know you, will follow you everywhere. Harry has been neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, checked for parasites, is on flea and heartworm prevention and is micro-chipped. He has a histiocytomas on his belly. A histiocytomas is a benign tumor of the skin that is very common in young dogs. It should resolve on its own without any treatment in about 3 months. Harry is great with cats and dogs. He weighs about 75 lbs and must have a fenced-in yard. Harry is crate trained and we are working on housetraining him and walking on a leash. He 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.
