We Care for Animals featured pet is Tiffany. Tiffany is a darling, about 2 year old, Chihuahua mix. She gets along with other dogs, likes car rides and loves to go for walks. Tiffany is a little timid and it takes her a bit of time to trust people but once she does, she’s a velcro dog who loves lap sitting and giving kisses. She is house trained and crate trained. She will be spayed on October 27 and will be available for adoption after that. We are currently taking applications on her but will hold on to her until after her spay. Because she is a little timid and get frightened, a fenced yard would be best for her. Older, respectful children would be fine for her but we prefer no toddlers or young children because she is timid. Tiffany’s adoption fee is $125.

Johnny and Ronny. Johnny and Ronny have been with us for awhile. These two are sweet and playful 17-week-old kittens who have acclimated well in their foster home. They are ready for new homes. Both kittens are neutered and chipped and have received their initial vaccines. If you like orange, these are the kittens for you. They are bonded so we would like them to go together.

Marley is a snuggle bug who is housetrained, enjoys walks and does great with other gentle dogs. Marley loves people and will want to be with you all of the time.

Shelly is a 7 month old shepherd mix pup. Shelly, like her siblings, was rescued from “too many animals, not enough care” situation. She has been altered, brought current on vaccines and is micro chipped. Shelly is house trained and is a very affectionate dog. Shelly is a special needs pup. She has some neurological issues with her back legs. She has been examined by the vet and x-rays showed nothing wrong with her hips or legs. She has some numbness in her back legs but walks and runs fine, just a little awkward. Shelly is shy at first meeting but then warms up quickly. She showed no reaction when she was around cats so should be fine with a mellow cat.
Wynona is about 8 months old and a shepherd mix. Wynona is very social and seems to do well with other dogs. She is strong and will need an active family willing to devote time to Wynona and help her with her manners. She will need a secure fenced yard. Shepherd experience would be a plus. Wynona has been spayed, micro chipped and is current on vaccines. She is house trained. She showed no reaction when she was around cats so should be fine with a mellow cat.
Bugsy is about 7 months old and a shepherd mix. He was rescued from a “too many animals, not enough care” situation. Bugsy has been altered, micro chipped, and is current on vaccines. He will need to be part of an active family and have a secure, fenced yard. Bugsy does well with other dogs after a proper introduction. He is house trained. Bugsy needs someone with patience who will work with him on his manners. He is a quick learner and enjoys humans. Bugsy was also fine when around cats.

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.
