Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Mongo the dog and Honey the cat:
Mongo is an American Bulldog mix. We think he is about 1 year old and he weighs about 55 pounds. He was rescued from an animal shelter where he came in as a stray in early December. Mongo is very friendly with both people and other dogs. He loves to run and romp, and rides well in a car. He is curious about cats, but has made no aggressive moves towards them. Mongo is very strong and will require training. He would do best with an experienced dog person and must have a fenced-in yard. Mongo is crate trained, house broken, micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, on heartworm and flea preventative and will be neutered before adoption. He would make a great companion for an active family with children over 8. He doesn't realize his own strength and could easily knock down a young child.
Honey is an adult, medium-sized, shorthaired cat. She is about 2 or 3 years old, spayed and front declawed, combo tested negative and current on vaccines. She is a real sweetheart and loves to cuddle in your lap.
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 Ralph and Kendra the cats:
Ralph is a handsome domestic shorthair brown Tabby with white who is new to the pound and a bit scared. He is very friendly, very caring and a rather neat and tidy cat. He loves to be petted, likes to play and would make a welcome addition to the right family. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots and rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is litter box trained.
Kendra is a domestic shorthair brown tabby with beautiful coloring. She is a super sweet cat who enjoys rolling around on her back while trying to grab anyone's attention for some playtime. She is about 4 years old and what we call "pleasantly plump." She gets along well with children, adults and other cats. She is spayed, up to date on routine shots and 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.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Truvy and St. Pauli Girl the cats:
Truvy is 1 to 2 years old and has been fully vetted. She gets along well with other cats, but she does play hard when she wrestles. She is very outgoing. Truvy is sociable and will greet you at the door when you come home.
St. Paulie Girl came from a pound where she was left in a carrier with her sister. It was obvious they were in there for a length of time. She was a bit leery of humans, but has started to warm up now. She loves to be petted and brushed. She is fond of other animals, but needs a home that is on the quiet side. She has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is 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.
