Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Owen and Fritz the cats:
Owen is a young, handsome Jet Black Domestic Short Hair. He has the personality of a lion and loves being around people. Owen was found in a backyard tied up with no food or water. Owen urgently needs to be in a home and out of a cage. He is currently in one of our largest available cages and is still getting anxious. Some animals cannot stand being cooped up for extended periods of time and need to have room to run and explore, like in a normal house. We need a responsible home for Owen where he will be cared for and kept safe, especially after what he has been through. He is neutered, current on routine shots, dewormed, litter box trained and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
Fritz is a good looking Domestic Medium hair orange and white cat. He came in as a stray, but was neutered and front declawed. He appears to be about 2-years-old and is a very sweet guy. He loves attention and will gladly come to the front of his cage to interact with anyone who gives him some time. He is current 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.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Spice and Stormy the cats:
Spice is a beautiful little 7-month-old girl with a tender disposition. She is a bit shy at first but she is so loving once you gain her trust. She has torbie coloring and the ticking of an Abyssinian. Spice is very gentle when playing with toys and appears to be very submissive around the other cats and kittens in her foster home. She is really starting to open up and loves to be held or to sit in your lap. Spice has been spayed, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, and is current on age appropriate vaccinations.
Stormy was in a pound that was becoming very overcrowded. She is just about 8-months-young and super friendly. Stormy will play with other cats, currently resides with dogs, and she loves her humans. She will check in with you often and will relax with you when you decide that it's time to kick up your feet. Stormy has been spayed, 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.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Eli the dog and Willa the cat:
Eli is a 1-year-old Lab Beagle mix and weighs in at about 30 pounds. He is house-trained and crate-trained. Eli is great with other dogs and loves to cuddle. He will soon be vaccinated, neutered, treated with flea and heartworm prevention and microchipped. This sweetheart will be at the Livonia PetSmart on Saturdays from 11-3. Come up and meet this cutie.
Willa was born around Aug. 23rd and tested positive for Feline Leukemia. She is a friendly and sweet girl who needs to be the only cat in the home or with another positive kitty. She can live a couple years so please give her a happy home for the few short years that she has. It would mean the world to her! Willa is now spayed and all vaccines are done.
