Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Topaz and Onyx the cats:
Topaz is a handsome 3-year old weighing in at about 11 pounds. He’s long and lean with a very long tail. He is a very loving cat and will keep you company by napping in your lap or curling up next to you at night. He loves to be with people. Topaz loves to play with toys, especially the laser light, and he loves to be brushed. Topaz has been neutered, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is up to date on all his vaccines.
Onyx is a 3-year old rescue cat who was born in the rescue. She has beautiful soft, short fur and green eyes. Onyx was a shy cat; however, she has become very social with the family and will seek you out for attention. Onyx gets along with other felines and loves dogs. She will sleep in bed with you and in your lap. She also loves to be brushed and will use her scratching post. Onyx has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia and is up to date on all 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 Suzie Q and Fifi the cats:
Suzie Q is a very pretty, super affectionate Calico. We assume she once had a family as she is spayed. At some point, she became an outside cat for a full year before the couple who had been feeding her picked her up. She likes nothing better than snuggling and being petted. Suzie Q is a young adult, spayed, up to date on routine shots and rabies, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed and litter box trained.
Fifi is very friendly, but has a little sass. She likes to be the center of attention and loves being petted. She is spayed, up to date on shots, 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 Fester the cat and Icing the dog:
Fester is an adult domestic short hair white Tabby mix. She is a very sweet and outgoing cat.
Icing is a very sweet, light blonde Labrador Retriever/Terrier Mix. She is the smallest of the litter, weighing 5 pounds and 12 ounces at about 6 weeks old. She and her mother and littermates were rescued at the end of November from a foreclosed home where they were left. Icing would not do well in a home where she will be locked up 8 hours a day when her new family is away at work. She is very playful and spunky and must have a fenced-in yard.
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.
