Maxwell, Gertrude Are Looking for Homes

Shelter to Home, Wyandotte Animal Pound and WAG Animal Rescue have a multitude of animals available for adoption.

Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with introduces us to cats Maxwell and Gertrude.

Maxwell, or Maxie, is a sweet boy who is about 7 years old. He loves to snuggle, give head butts, and get belly rubs all day long. He's very talkative and always lets you know when he's around! He will do better in a home with no other animals or kids simply because he has issues with food. He can't seem to control his eating so he is on a special diet that will need to be continued once he is adopted. He loves to give kisses and gentle nibbles on your fingers and does not hesitate to purr. He loves attention and loves to be brushed. Max cannot wait to find his forever home! He has been neutered and is current on all vaccines.

Gertrude is 3-5 years old and very affectionate. She has an outstanding purr motor and isn't afraid to use it. Gertie loves to be brushed and would do best in a quiet home without dogs. Gertrude weighs 15 pounds and is currently on a diet of a high quality, low calorie food to aid with her weight loss; her goal weight is 8-10 pounds. She is becoming more active as time goes on and the extra exercise should help with her diet. She is spayed, current on all vaccines and has been given flea treatment and a de-wormer. Gertrude's adoption donation is $100.

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, of introduces us to Sassy, the cat, and Salsa, the dog.

Sassy is about a year and a half old and is still looking for her forever home. Sassy is a playful little gal but a little timid until she gets to know you. She would prefer a quiet home. Sassy is spayed and up to date on all shots.

This very sweet girl is named Salsa. She is an adorable Pit/Boxer mix who is about 6 months old and should be a medium sized dog when fully grown, maybe about 50 to 60 pounds. Salsa always wants to be with you, will give you kisses and always wants to cuddle. Salsa loves to play with toys and other dogs. She is fostered with cats and does great with them. She would not do well in a home where she will be locked up eight hours a day when her new family is away at work. She is very playful and spunky. Salsa MUST have a fenced yard. She is crate trained, spayed and housebroken.  Salsa is good with kids but we recommend kids over 8 because she does like to nibble on everything, just like all puppies. Salsa will make a great family dog.

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.

Rose Darin, of introduces us to Baby Doll and Gibbs, the cats.

Baby Doll is a very sweet senior Gray Tabby. Her owner passed away and the rest of the family decided it was best for the senior cat to be brought to the pound. She and her sister have been at the pound for several months now. Despite losing everything, she is doing OK. Her owner hadn't been well, according to the family, and had not been able to care for her well for a long time so she had several minor issues to be addressed. She is now on flea prevention, vaccinated, spayed, Feline AIDS and Leukemia negative, DECLAWED, Litter box trained and ready to be adopted!

Gibbs is a very cute domestic short hair Black/Tabby mix. He and his littermates had to be bottle fed when their mother was killed when they were just a couple of weeks old. He loves to be cuddled and is also quite playful. We hope he, or any of the other kittens we have, don't have to grow up in a cage at the pound. He will be neutered, up to date on age appropriate shots, tested for Feline Leukemia and AIDS and litter box trained before he is adopted.

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.
