Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Monique and Charlotte the cats:
Monique is a young, beautiful and shiny black domestic short hair. She is also unique because she is a polydactyl cat, meaning she has extra toes. She is a very interactive little girl who likes to know what's going on and how she can be involved. She loves to be held and cuddled and her purr motor is always on high. She is spayed, has tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, is up-to-date on routine age-appropriate shots and litter box trained.
Charlotte is a beautiful senior brown tabby that has not had an easy time lately. She is a 10-year-old cat that was left at the pound when her former owner passed away, and the rest of the family didn't want her. She is very affectionate and does not deserve to finish her life in a cage at the pound. She is spayed, up-to-date on routine shots, has tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is litter box trained. We featured her sister last week, as well.
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 Toby the dog and Garfunkel the cat:
Weighing in at only 6 pounds, this sweet little poodle is named Toby. Toby is 6 years old and is up to date on all vaccines. He has tested negative for heartworms, been neutered, had his teeth cleaned and he is micro-chipped. Toby seems to get along with other dogs and cats without a problem.
Meet Garfunkel, a cute little boy that is playful and affectionate. He loves to be petted and loves to be with his brother Simon. If you're looking to adopt two sweetheart boys, they could be the ones.
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 Rascal and Gabby the Cats:
Rascal is a happy-go-lucky, spunky little 9-month-old boy with amazing eyes. He likes to investigate around the house and loves to look outside and watch the outdoors from a window perch. He is even friendly enough to sit in your lap and let you brush him and trim his nails. Rascal sometimes plays too rough with other cats in his foster home, but he is learning to get along. Rascal has been neutered, he has tested negative tested for feline AIDS and leukemia and he is current on all vaccines.
Gabby is an outgoing, playful and petite little girl. She loves humans and gets along well with the other cats and dogs in the house, as well. Both attentive and assertive, she lets her humans know she is present with a little meow, a lot of purring and constant company. She will be a loyal companion and will do well in any household that provides her love and care. Gabby has been spayed, she has tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is current on all of her 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.
