WE CARE FOR ANIMALS featured pet is Goldie: 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 had a dental and was 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.


Don’t forget WCFA has a small pet food bank to help those still having a tough time and need some pet food. Please contact Karen at 435-862-9574 and WCFA will provide you with some needed pet food.

Adoptable Cats:

Pete is a large, loveable white and tan feline. He is very affectionate and enjoys hanging with humans. Pete has been neutered and is fully vaccinated. He is scheduled for a dental and micro chip on February 7th. Pete is sharing his casita with another male cat and the two are doing very well together.


Whiskey came to us when his elderly owner could no longer care for him. He is only 10 months old. He has been neutered and is fully vaccinated. We will see that he is micro chipped right away. Whiskey is a gorgeous white and orange feline. He is very outgoing and loves playing with toys. He does great with the other male feline sharing his foster space.



adoptable Dogs:

Crosby was recently pulled from A.F. in Las Vegas… they had his breed listed as Glen of Imaal and Cairn… but think he is Poodle/Coton…nonetheless, he is a larger boy…23 lbs with a soft

somewhat wire haired coat… seems to be low to nonshedding, but will need regular grooming. Crosby has the cutest underbite! He is neutered & chipped; scheduled for grooming Feb 1 and a dental on Feb. 9. He is 7 years old but very active and agile; will need daily walks and a fenced yard is a must. He rides well in the car. He has been very happy to meet other dogs… and loves all people he meets. Crosby is a great sleeper and sleeps right through the night!

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!

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.
