Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Shelter to Home, Wyandotte Animal Pound and WAG Animal Rescue.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with introduces us to cats, Naomi and Neil.
Naomi is just under 2 years old and has spent 6 months of her life in a small cage at the pound waiting to be adopted. Now she is in foster care with Shelter to Home and is doing well. She loves the attention that she gets all the time and she is looking for a home to call her very own where she can live out the rest of her life. She has been spayed, tested for FeLV/FIV (negative), and is current on all of her vaccines. Naomi’s adoption donation is $100.
Neil is an adorable kitten that was saved from a local shelter. He is an active kitten who loves to investigate his surroundings and he is also a talker! He gets along well with other cats and has been introduced to dogs at short spurts. He has been neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV (negative), and is current on all of his vaccines. Neil’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.
Vickie Taylor, of introduces us to Hank, the dog, and Jasmine, the cat.
This sweet tiny boy is named Hank. He is only 3 pounds. Hank is 1 1/2 years old, so this is as big as he is going to get. He is a very small and fragile boy, so we are looking for a home with no small children or large dogs. Hank is very attached to his foster mom already and is never far from her side. Hank loves to sleep under blankets. We are working on housetraining him and he is learning to go outside, but he's a little scared because it is all new. We do not think his previous owner took him outside much because he didn't know what grass was! Hank is great with cats and other small dogs. Hank will be neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped next week.
This gorgeous 3 year old is named Jasmine. She is looking for a nice quiet home where she can get lots of love and attention. She does OK with other cats and dogs. Jasmine is spayed and all up to date!
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 Swag, the dog, and Owen, the cat.
Swag is a 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever mix who loves to have his belly rubbed! He passed his temperament test, although he would be a better fit with an owner who has previous dog experience. Swag's former home gave him up when they decided they did not have time for a dog — sadly, this is a common reason dogs are abandoned. We are looking for a home devoted to Swag this time. He's a very intelligent dog who picks up cues with ease and always tries to please. He is recently neutered, up to date on routine shots and rabies and is heartworm negative.
Owen is a very handsome Domestic Short Hair who has the personality of a lion! He loves everything. Owen was found tied up in a backyard with no food or water. He had a few cuts on his face, but they have all healed up. Owen gives hugs and loves to be around people, though he needs to be reminded not to get carried away sometimes. It took us a long time to get this photo, because Owen cannot sit still long enough to be photographed. He's a cat with a lot to do! He would do best in a home that enjoys a very playful cat with a lot of energy. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots and rabies, feline AIDS and leukemia negative and litter box trained.
