Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Sassy Sally and Xena the cats:
Sassy Sally is the life of a party. She enjoys cuddle time, but there is so much playing to be done and so much to explore. She currently lives with Xena, three big cats and three big dogs and enjoys playing with all of them. Sally has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is current on all of her vaccines.
Xena is the perfect kitten. She loves to cuddle and play and is very polite while doing so. Xena has good manners and loves being held, especially over the shoulder where she can explore the house with her caretaker. Xena has been spayed, 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. 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 Lahtia the dog and Oscar the cat:
Lahtia is a senior Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier mix. She has a pretty brindle coat. She seems to be a nice dog, but her family became unable to care for their pets any longer. She's between 6 and 7 years old, but she still has a lot of years left to enjoy life. She is spayed, up to date on routine shots and rabies and heartworm negative.
Oscar is a very handsome cat who greets anyone who comes to see him. He is very friendly and loving. He, along with his brother, Ernie, were left at the pound by his owner of seven years after the owner developed an allergy to cats as an adult. Oscar is neutered, declawed, up to date on routine shots, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and 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 Charlie Brown the dog and Caesar the cat:
Charlie Brown is a 12-week-old pit/lab mix. He will be vaccinated, dewormed, micro-chipped, and treated with flea and heartworm prevention prior to adoption. He is a super smart puppy and is highly food motivated. He learned sit in one day. He is crate trained and we are working on housetraining him. He would do best in a home with no cats and no children under 8. Charlie is very energetic and would not do well in a home where he will be locked up 8 hours a day when his new family is away at work. He would do great with another young dog to wear off some of his energy. His new home must have a fenced-in yard.
Caesar is about 3 years old and needs a home where he is the only animal. He gets along great with other cats and dogs, but sometimes gets very jealous and will urinate on things. This does not happen often and probably never if he was the only animal in the house. He has a great personality and is very handsome.
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.
