Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Minx the cat and Katie the dog:
Minx is a sweet and lovable 1- to 2-year-old kitten. She is very kitten-like and loves to play and run around. Minx is very people oriented and she follows people around everywhere. Minx is a very talkative cat. You can practically carry on a conversation with her. She will make some lucky family a great companion and best friend. Minx gets along great with cats and dogs. She has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and feline leukemia, dewormed and is current on vaccines.
Katie is a playful, yet quiet, little dog, weighing in at only 36 lbs. She looks like a miniature black German Shepherd. She is 4-years-old and was surrendered to a shelter by her previous owners who could no longer care for her. Katie gets along great with dogs and cats. She will need some training because she doesn't know any basic commands. She is intelligent and is eager to please, so she should do very well with some training. Katie is up-to-date on all of her shots including rabies. She has been spayed, tested negative for heartworm and given flea and heartworm preventative. Katie even has a microchip that can be updated to her new home address.
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 Deek the cat and JuJu Bean the dog:
Deek is a super friendly, outgoing cat with an all around great personality. Any family would be lucky to have him. He was adopted out as a kitten, but his previous family’s daughter had to have a kidney transplant, so he was returned. He is about 10 months old and gorgeous.
JuJu Bean was found wandering as a stray. She is 2 years old and weighs 40 pounds. She is a bundle of energy and is always on the go. She enjoys going for walks and is well behaved on her leash. JuJu Bean is a special needs dog as she suffers from seizures, but her current medications control them extremely well and do not interfere with her quality of life. JuJu is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, crate trained, housebroken, and on heartworm and flea preventative.
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, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Godfrey and Powell the cats:
Godfrey is a very handsome adult Red Tabby. He is wonderful cat who has the spirit of a survivor. He had a condition known as stomatitis, which required the removal of all of his teeth. He's doing much better now and is no longer in pain. He is able to eat well and has a very sweet nature and loves people. All this 5-year-old cat needs now is a lifelong home of his own. He is neutered, current on routine shots/rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is litter box trained.
Powell is a stunning adult domestic short hair black cat. He was found starving outside and was being fostered. When his foster mom got ill, he ended up at the shelter. He would like nothing better than a forever home to settle into. He is a friendly, goofy guy. He is neutered, current on routine shots/rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is 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.
