Available Cats/Kittens:

Whiskers and Scuddles:  These two handsome 9 month old cats are very friendly.  Whiskers is the leader of the two and is the first to demand your attention.  Scuddles follows at his leisure.  Whiskers has the longer hair and a fluffy tail while Scuddles has a sleek, shiny coat.  It would be nice if they could go to a home together but it is not required.

Emily is a sweet, 10 year old senior feline.  Emily is calm and affectionate. She is in good health.  She would do well in a senior citizen home giving lots of love to her family.  If you are a senior and are interested in Emily, we will offer a special senior to senior adoption rate.

Smokey is a 12 week old male kitten.  Smokey has been neutered and received his first vaccines.  He is a sweet little guy and would love his own special family.

Available Dogs:

Bryce is a Lhasa Apso mix.  He has one blue eye and one brown eye.  Bryce weighs about 14 lbs.  Bryce is working on his house training and using a doggie door.  He is a mild mannered, nice 3 year old dog and gets along well with other dogs.

WCFA offers a wonderful low-cost/free opportunity to spay/neuter your pets to prevent accidental litters and keep your pet happy and healthy.  Our target areas are Mesquite, Bunkerville and the Arizona Strip.  Spay/Neuter Assistance Applications are available at Mesquite Veterinary Clinic located at 371 Riverside Road and Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital at 660 Hardy Way.  You may also call WCFA at 702-346-3326 to leave a message or visit wecareforanimals.org to contact us by email.  Half of all litters born in the U.S. are accidents that overburden shelters and rescues.

Foster Pet Parents needed:  WCFA depends on reliable pet fosters to save homeless cats and dogs.  The number of homeless pets that WCFA can foster is determined by its available foster homes.  Fostering provides a temporary safe and loving home until adoption.   Please go to wecareforanimals.org to complete our foster application.

WCFA is often confused with the Mesquite Animal Shelter.  The Shelter is operated by the City of Mesquite.  WCFA is an independent cat and dog rescue and is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.   WCFA can be reached at 702-346-3326 (voicemail) regarding adoption, fostering, information regarding re-homing a pet and spay/neuter assistance for qualified pet owners.   Monetary donations are always needed and can be made online at wecareforanimals.org or by mail at WCFA, P.O. Box 3028, Mesquite, NV 89024.  Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.  WCFA’s email address is wcfanv@gmail.com.  Visit our website at wecareforanimals.org.   Follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/wecareforanimalsmesquitenv.
