Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Saturn and Milo the cats:
Saturn is a handsome orange tabby with a splendid demeanor. His heart is as big as his head and he is certain to improve the universe you live in. He is a very friendly, handsome cat. He is a bit shy at the pound, but should do well in a loving home. He gets along with other cats. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots/rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed and litter box trained.
Milo is such a great cat who ended up at the shelter because his owner passed away. He is friendly, calm and would really love a new family to call his own. He is neutered, up to date on routine shots/rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed 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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Sweet Roo the dog and Willow the cat:
Sweet Roo is a female Labrador Retriever/Irish Terrier Mix. She is a very loving dog with lots of energy. She was rescued with her 7 puppies at the end of November in a foreclosed home where they had been abandoned. Roo wants to be with people at all times and absolutely loves to cuddle on the couch. Roo weighs 43 pounds and is about 2 years old. She gets along very well with other dogs and is interested in cats, but does not hurt them. Roo would do best in a home without small children because she does like to jump. She does bark at loud noises and does like to chew up her toys. Roo is a medium/high energy dog, so she will need a fenced-in yard. She loves to play fetch and would make a great jogging companion. Roo is crate trained, spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, and has had heartworm and flea preventative. She would make a great companion for an active person with children over 12 years old.
Willow is a domestic short hair, medium-sized, 8-year-old female cat. She is a beautiful senior in need of her forever home. She gets along great with other cats and she adores people. She enjoys a good rub down every now and then.
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 Poe the dog and Dimitrios the cat:
Poe is about 4 months old. He’s a little guy with a huge personality. He's a hugger and a kisser, and he gets along well with dogs and cats. Poe was originally found in a shed with his sister with no heat and little food. Both suffered a mild case of frostbite, but are in great shape now. Poe is currently working on housetraining; he's a smart little pup so it shouldn't be long now. Poe has been neutered and given age appropriate vaccines.
Dimitrios is about 3 years old. He was rescued from the shelter after spending many months being passed over simply because of his color. Dimitrios loves to sit on a warm lap and he gets along well with cats and dogs. He is an easygoing guy who would love to find his forever home where he can spoil his human with purrs and head butts. Dimitrios has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on 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.
