WE CARE FOR ANIMALS featured pet is Winston: Winston is a sweet and lovable 2-year-old Border Collie mix who is friendly to everyone he has met. Winston has a wonderful temperament, and he enjoys people and other dogs. He loves playing with dogs at the dog park. He would do great with another active dog in a home or someone who is home most of the time who will take the time to exercise him. He needs a fenced yard. On walks, Winston does have a tendency to pull, but we are working with him on that. Winston would appreciate a chicken-free home. Winston is housetrained, neutered, chipped and current on vaccines. He will be at our pet adoption on April 1, 2023 so please come to meet him. To express interest, please complete our online adoption application at wecareforanimals.org. Winston’s adoption fee is $125.

ADOPTABLE GUINEA PIGS:
ADOPTABLE CATS: New cats will be arriving this week. Stay tuned.
Gypsy is a 7 year old Yorkie. She’s about 15 lbs (but could lose a couple). Gypsy’s owner went into assisted living, and she spent a long time caged in boarding before coming into a foster home with We Care For Animals. She’s a little confused with all that’s happening, and we just got her, but she’s settling in well. She’s fine with the other dogs in her foster home, knows how to use the doggie door, and walks well on a leash. Gypsy is spayed, chipped and up to date on her vaccines. We’ll be getting her groomed and having her teeth cleaned, but she’s ready to be adopted now! Gypsy will do best in a home with someone who is home most of the time. A single person or an adult couple would be best.
Kelsea is a beautiful shepherd-heeler mix with a wonderful temperament. She is a gem! Kelsea knows basic commands such as sit, shake, down, stay. She doesn’t jump on people and is very friendly to everyone she meets. She likes to lean into you. She gets along with all dogs, although she can overwhelm small dogs because of her size. She is housetrained, loves playing with toys and loves to fetch and returns the ball to you. She doesn’t destroy or chew on furniture or anything in the home. She has been in her foster home for a week and has yet to bark. She loves attention, being petted and hugs. Kelsea is young and active and loves to run and play. She does well on leash and improving every day. Her foster has taken Kelsea for hikes in the desert, and she loves it. It would be a benefit for Kelsea to have a home with an active family or person who enjoys long walks, hikes or even running. With adequate daily exercise, Kelsea enjoys lounging around the house. Having a secure fenced yard is a plus. She needs regular brushing. Kelsea is approximately 2 years and weighs 68 lbs. She is current on vaccines and will be spayed and microchipped on March 16, 2023. Kelsea’s adoption fee is $125.

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.
