Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Sarge the dog and Randall the cat:
Sarge is a handsome Black Lab mix. He passed his temperament test with all A's. He's a friendly dog who should fit in well in a home with previous dog experience. Sarge is a very intelligent dog who really deserves a chance. Our volunteer trainers call Sarge a big, playful goofball. He still needs leash training and work on his basic manners, jumping and pulling. Sarge is afraid of cats, but pretty good with most other dogs. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots and tested negative for rabies and heartworm.
Randall is an adult orange tabby. He is a cool cat with a cool attitude. He likes to cuddle, play and is great looking. It's hard to believe a cat so pleasant was a stray. Anyone looking for an orange feline friend would certainly be impressed with Randall. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots, litter box trained and tested negative for rabies, feline AIDS and feline leukemia.
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 JuJu Bean the dog and Paisley the cat:
JuJu Bean was found wandering as a stray. She is almost 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. They do not interfere with her quality of life in any way. JuJu is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, crate trained, housebroken, and is on heartworm and flea preventative.
Paisley has a sweet little round face and round eyes, which make her a little different looking. She loves to play and to be petted. Paisley is about 3 ½ years old. She is spayed and up to date on all shots.
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 Circe the cats:
Rascal is a happy-go-lucky, spunky little 10-month-old cat with the most amazing eyes. He likes to investigate around the house and loves the window perch where he can watch the outdoor activity. Rascal loves to play, jump and have fun. He will even sit in your lap and let you brush him and trim his nails. He does sometimes play too rough with the other cats in his foster home, but he’s trying to learn to get along. Rascal has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on his vaccines.
Circe was rescued after spending months in a local shelter waiting to be adopted. She is 2 years old and can’t get enough attention. She loves to play and chase feather toys and to have her chin scratched. She gets along well with the other cats in her foster home, but she would really like to have a home of her own. Circe has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is current on 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. Shelter to Home can be contacted by phone at 734-556-3135 and through email.
