We Care for Animals featured dog is Honey: Honey is a delightfully sweet long-haired Chihuahua. She came to us when her previous owners entered assisted living. Our objective is to find the best match for our adoptable pets and prospective adopters. If you have an interest in Honey, read her bio and then complete on our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org if you feel she might be a match for you. Honey is a gem! She is quiet, loving and wants to be in the company of her human(s). She loves sitting in a chair next to you, or on you, and she’ll sleep on the bed with you. Honey is house trained with a dog door. It would be advantageous for her new family to have a quiet home (no small children), another small compatible dog to keep her company, a dog door leading to an enclosed yard. She enjoys short walks. Honey recently had a dental and is finishing up her meds. Honey is 5 years and approximately 7.4 lbs. She is spayed, current on her vaccines and micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $150.
WE CARE FOR ANIMALS featured cat is Angel: Angel is a beautiful Chocolate Point Siamese approximately 3 years old weighing 7.7 lbs. and is available for adoption through We Care for Animals.

She has lived in harmony with other cats. Angel is fully vetted and microchipped. We want the best appropriate home for our adoptable pets and prospective adopters. We request that, if you have an interest in Angel, to complete our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org. Angel’s adoption fee is $45.

Frostee is a beautiful Siamese mix, about a year old. She has been spayed, micro chipped and is fully vaccinated. Frostee is extremely shy and will need a quieter home with someone who is patient and will give her time to adjust to a new environment. You will be well rewarded when she settles in and becomes a very loving girl.
Johnny and Ronny have been with us for some time. They are super, wonderful cats. Please come by and see these two wonderful cats. They are sweet and playful 7 month old kittens who have acclimated well in their foster home. They would love a new home before Christmas. 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. Through the end of December these kittens can be adopted at a two for one price of $75. All other requirements such as a home check, still apply.
Evie is an adorable Maltese/Doxie mix. She’s about 3 years old and weighs in at 6.8lbs. We’re not quite sure about her past, she came to us as a matted mess that was horribly scared. After a few days in her foster home, she warmed up and now loves getting attention from her foster mom. She’s a little shy around new people, it just takes her some time to get comfortable. She is fine with the other dogs in her foster home, but doesn’t have any interest in playing with them, or playing with toys. She was not potty trained, but we’re working on it. She’s making progress every day. She was not spayed or vaccinated, so she has been on house arrest at her foster home and we have been unable to work on leash training. She probably has never walked on a leash, and is frightened of new things/places. For this reason, she will need a home with a secure yard. Evie would be fine as an only dog, or with other well behaved dogs. She would probably prefer a quiet home without a lot of chaos. Her favorite activity is snuggling on the couch with her foster mom. Evie’s adoption fee is $125. She is vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped on Jan. 12.
Pancake is a spunky little 8lb, 11 month old Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound. She’s full of energy and loves chewing on nylabones, playing with toys, and playing with other dogs. She’d do best in a home with another very playful dog. She’s a little shy with new people and places, but as soon as she’s comfortable she loves to get attention and snuggles. She was originally found as a stray, she had been running loose by the river for months, and finally trapped by a rescuer, she was only 6 months old at the time. With her previous owner, she had a history of escaping and running away. She will need a home with a secure yard for this reason. Pancake’s adoption fee is $150. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and ready to be adopted! If you’re interested in a meet and greet, or have any questions about Pancake, please fill out the no-obligation pre-adoption application at wecareforanimals.org.

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.
