Lainie is a beautiful long haired black feline. She will be 2 years old this June. Lainie is loving and sweet natured. She would do well as an only cat with someone who is home most of the time. She would be fine with another calm, well mannered cat. She enjoys having people around and wants your attention. Lainie is spayed, micro chipped and current on all vaccines.
Simba and Apollo are new to WCFA. Their owner could no longer care for these two sweet orange felines. These brothers are very shy right now and need a couple of weeks to settle in and relax. They have now been neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated. Simba is long haired and Apollo has short hair. They are about 5 months old. We would like these two boys to go together to their new forever home. They are very gentle boys.
Puppies Judy, Shep, Lily and Harry are available for adoption! All the puppies have now been spay/neutered, received 2 sets of parvo/distemper vaccines and have been micro chipped. All will be medium to large in size. We have been told that mom is Chow-Akita (she weighs 52 lbs and suspect dad is Australian Shepherd-Heeler mix (looks to be 55-60 lbs). These pups will require a dedicated owner as they will require lots of daily exercise, obedience training, house training, learn to walk on lead and treated as a loving member of their new family. To express interest in any of these pups, go to wecareforanimals.org to complete our online adoption application. We plan to show the pups at our next pet adoption on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at 150 N. Yucca, Suite 1 from 9-11 a.m. Adoption fee is $100.
We rescued Jimmy from a shelter where he was going to be euthanized for extreme fear. We don’t know Jimmy’s history before landing in the shelter, but he obviously wasn’t given the love and socialization that every pet needs. Jimmy has been in foster care for several weeks in a calm and loving environment, and he has made a lot of progress. Jimmy is really sweet but very shy towards people. He has never shown aggression to anyone. He wants very much to trust but he finds it difficult at times to commit all the way. Jimmy does show some preference for women. He will come up to his foster mom most of the time when there is food involved. Jimmy would benefit greatly in a calm and loving home (no small children) with someone home most of the time and who is committed to gain Jimmy’s trust and take his confidence to the next level. Jimmy may not be a lap dog, but he really enjoys belly rubs. Jimmy loves playing with other dogs similar in size. Having another small playful dog as a companion for Jimmy would be a plus. Jimmy enjoys hanging out in the yard and lying in the sun. He would enjoy and needs a home with a safe and secure backyard. He can be a runner. He does well on leash and on walks. He is housetrained with a dog door. Jimmy is a Chihuahua mix with long legs. He is approximately 3 years of age and weighs 13.4 lbs. He is neutered, current on his vaccines and microchipped. To express interest, please complete our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org. Jimmy’s adoption fee is $100.

Fostering Saves Lives
Fostering is a commitment to save homeless pets. Fosters provide a safe haven for a cat or dog until it is adopted. Sharing foster responsibilities with another foster is also an option. Fostering could be one of the most rewarding experiences for you. To express interest in fostering, please complete our online foster application at wecareforanimals.org.
