Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Honey B, the dog and Ramone, the cat.
Honey B is about 2 years old and was rescued from a high kill shelter. Honey B is in foster care, where she gets along great with the other dog and is doing very well learning boundaries with the cats. She listens very well and will sit for treats. She's excellent in her crate. She enjoys running in the backyard, so a fenced yard is a must. She has been spayed, vaccinated, and given flea and heartworm preventative.
Ramone is a loveable little guy that was pulled from an overcrowded pound and given a second chance at finding his forever home. He is really great with kids and other pets and will adjust to just about any situation. Ramone has been neutered, tested negative for FIV/FEL, given age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed and flea treated.
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.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Elden and Rufus, the cats.
Elden is a super friendly and handsome adult Domestic Short Hair cat. He was brought to the shelter by some children who had found him. No one ever claimed him, so he is waiting for a family to love. He just needs a home and people to keep him safe and sound.
Rufus is another super friendly stray who was turned in to the shelter and never claimed. He is an adult Russian Blue/Korat mix who loves loves LOVES to talk. He has a lot to say! He also loves to snuggle. He will be a wonderful addition to any family! He is neutered, up to date on routine shots, Feline AIDS and leukemia negative and 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.
Vickie Taylor, vice president of WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Miss Kitty, the dog, and Pepper, the kitten.
Miss Kitty is an 8 month old Schnoodle — a mix between a Poodle and a Giant Schnauzer. She is a happy little girl that loves people. Her tail never stops wiggling, and she got her name because she just loves kittens. Kitty was rescued from an outside pen at a breeder/hoarder's house with her siblings. They are a little shy to begin with, but then they follow you everywhere. Miss Kitty is fostered with her brother (Dirty Harry), two Rottweilers and five cats and gets along great with them. Kitty weighs about 50 lbs. and must have a fenced yard. She is crate trained, and we are working on housetraining her and walking on a leash. Schnoodles tend to shed less than many breeds but require weekly brushing and grooming every 4 to 6 weeks, which will cost about $80 or more.
Isn't Pepper a handsome boy? He is 11 weeks old now and is the last in the litter of six to be adopted. He is super playful and he is looking for a fun family to adopt him. You will not be disappointed in this guy! He is all black with medium length fur.
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.
