Marshall-aa_AZ_5-26-15 (2)We Care for Animals (WCFA) featured pet is Marshall, a 1 ½ – 2 year old Shih Tzu.  Marshall had been running loose for over a month when some wonderful people found him and brought him to us.  He was so matted he had to be shaved but he sure feels much better.  Marshall loves everyone and he does fine with other dogs.  He is just happy to have regular food and a comfortable bed.  He is house trained and enjoys going for walks.

Available Cats/Kittens:

Whiskers and Scuddles:  These two handsome 11 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. Emily has a bobbed tail and a beautiful fluffy coat. She would do well in a senior citizen home giving lots of love to her family.

Available Dogs:

Casey is a Havanese, Maltese, Westie or some combination thereof.  He is about 3 years old, house trained, good on lease and rides well in the car.  Casey likes kids and gets along great with other dogs.  Casey has cherry eye and will have his surgery in about a week.  Once he has a little recovery time, he will be ready to go to a great new family.
