WE CARE FOR ANIMALS featured pet is Doogie:  Handsome Doogie available for adoption through We Care for Animals in Mesquite NV. Please note that we strive to find the best fit for our adoptable pets and prospective adopters. Therefore, we request that anyone interested in Doogie to please complete our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org. Doogie was found as an emaciated stray. He gained weight while at a shelter and, when he came to us, he weighed 11.4 lbs. He now weighs 12.6 lbs. Doogie is a Dachshund mix, approximately 3-4 years old, neutered, current on vaccines and chipped. He loves being with people and is a snuggle bug! While Doogie may be shy at first and bark when first meeting you, he is actually a very sweet and loving little dog. Doogie is housetrained with a dog door. He can do well as an only dog with someone who is at home most of the time. Otherwise, it would be better if he had another small compatible dog(s) for company. If you are gone most of the day, even with a doggie companion, Doogie is not the dog for you. His first love is people!

Adoptable Cats: 

Johnny and Ronny have been patiently waiting for their new home.  Please, if you are considering adding a pet to your home, take a good look at these two boys. They are super, 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 this New Year. Both kittens are neutered and chipped and have received their 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 January these kittens can be adopted at a two for one price of $75.  All other requirements such as a home check, still apply.





adoptable Dogs:


Drum roll please.. Introducing: PEPPA This loving little 12 pound lap sitter is looking for a family. She is working on not shying away from people reaching for her when they are standing. She would love to have another dog but is nervous around dogs as big as a German Shepherd. She likes walks and car rides. She is housebroken with supervision. Peppa is in foster care and will be available for adoption after she is spayed later in January. However don’t wait too long to put in your application as she won’t last long. Young children need not apply. Latency aged and teen kids would be fine. An application to adopt can be found at http://www.wecareforanimals.org. After receiving your completed application, the foster parent will contact you. Even though a family may be selected before she is spayed, she will remain in care until after that time.


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.


Goldie is a Chihuahua mix and is about 5-6 years old.  She was found as a stray but was obviously someone’s pet at one time.  She was not claimed so WCFA took her in.  Goldie has been spayed and received her vaccines.  She will have a dental and be micro chipped January 9th.  Goldie is house trained, knows a dog door and needs to lose some weight.  She loves going for walks and is pretty fast running around the yard.  She is a sweet girl who would prefer a family where someone is home most of the time.  She will be your shadow.  Goldie is a very affectionate little girl once she is comfortable in her surroundings.  She will bark at new people but quickly settles down. No small children for this girl.

SPAy/Neuter Assistance

WCFA offers low-cost spay/neuter assistance for very limited income pet owners in Mesquite, Bunkerville and the Arizona Strip and we also offer TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) for community (feral) cats.  Spay/neuter applications are available at Mesquite Veterinary Clinic located at 371 Riverside Road and at Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital at 660 Hardy Way, Suite 44.  You may also call WCFA at 702-346-3326 to leave a message or visit wecareforanimals.org to contact us by email.  Spay/neuter is a health benefit to your pet and prevents accidental litters that overburden shelters and rescues.

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.
