Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Toronado and Jaguar the cats:
Toronado is a handsome brown Tabby who was found as a stray freezing in the rain. Toronado is a gentle, but playful, cat who likes to sit in the front of his cage and people watch. He is neutered, up to date on routine vaccines, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed and litter box trained.
Jaguar is a stunning Turkish Angora mix. Though he is not be an actual Jaguar, he loves to be cuddled, played with, and admired. His fur is soft and his demeanor is friendly and kind. He is neutered, up to date on routine vaccines, 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.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Pamela and Mimi the cats:
Pamela was rescued from a shelter where she lived since September. She is so happy and thankful to be out. She is a sweetheart and has a wonderful temperament. Her adoring features are her slightly crossed eyes, her beautiful coloring in her coat and that she is a big lap cat. She loves to be scratched and loves her cat bed. She is about 2 years old, has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and current on vaccines.
Mimi is a wonderful companion who loves to sit in a warm lap and get gentle pets and scratches. She is about 6 years old and would love to have a quiet home where she can be queen of her castle. Mimi loves people, but does not like dogs and only tolerates other cats. She needs to be the dominant cat in a household or preferably the only one. If you have a warm lap, a quiet home, and a generous heart, she’s your cat. Mimi has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and 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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Leela the cat and Charlie the dog:
Leela is a young, female, Tabby Mix. She is about 6 months old. She was found in Riverview on one of the coldest days of the year. She is very skinny, so her foster parents are trying to put some weight on her and she should be getting spayed in the next few weeks. She is a gorgeous girl with a big fluffy tail and is super sweet. She gets along with the dogs that she is currently fostered with. They even take naps in bed together.
Charlie is a small, adult, male Silky Terrier who is about 7 years old. He was rescued from a local shelter. In his previous situation, someone did not take very good care of him and he had a terrible infection that had formed a hole in his mouth, up through his nasal cavity. Since being in WAG’s care, Charlie has had 11 teeth pulled and got his oronasal fistula repaired. We are happy to report that Charlie is now doing great and is eating and acting completely normal! Charlie is housetrained and would do best in a home without small children because he is so tiny.
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.
