Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Vickie Taylor, vice president of WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Teenie Weenie the dog and Rodney the cat:
Teenie Weenie likes to climb on top of things. She loves to cuddle and be held. She is black with a white chest with big ears and a super big heart. She weighs about 8 pounds and is about 3 months old. Teenie Weenie and her three littermates were rescued from an overcrowded, high-kill shelter on their last day in the middle of June. When they came to us, they were very sick. After taking them to the vet, we were told they had parvo. After much love and care, they all recovered except for one. The three who made it are doing wonderful. They are running around and feeling great.
Rodney is a handsome 10-month-old sweetheart. He is neutered and front declawed. He loves to be petted and brushed. Rodney is very playful and gets along with other cats. He adores people and likes to be around them as long as he is getting some attention, too.
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 , introduces us to Moonbeam and Marnie the cats:
Moonbeam is about 3 years old. She loves to snuggle with her foster family and give them all lots of love. She especially loves belly rubs. She likes people, big and small, other cats and even dogs. Moonbeam is current on all vaccines. She has been dewormed, spayed, given flea preventative and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia. Moonbeam is ready to go to her forever home.
Marnie, which means "rejoice", gets along well with other cats and dogs. She loves to play with small toys, especially balls that jingle. She is about 10 months old and can be a bit shy towards people she doesn’t know. Once she knows and trusts you, though, she is very loving and affectionate. Her foster mom says she is a great companion who will follow you around and snuggle with you when you are sitting. But she needs that special person who will give her a couple of weeks to get to know them before she will show her true self. Marnie has been spayed, up to date on all vaccines, and tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia.
