We Care for Animals (WCFA) featured pet is Rusty a five-month old kitten.  He and his sister Butterscotch are looking for forever new homes, hopefully together.  Rusty is very outgoing and Butterscotch looks to her brother for support.  Both are friendly, with Butterscotch the shy one.

Available Cats/Kittens:

Other than Rusty and Butterscotch, we have no other felines available at this time.  Please check with the Mesquite Animal Shelter for their available cats/kittens.

Available Dogs:

Nelson is a young terrier mix.  Nelson is neutered, micro chipped and current on vaccinations.  He is house trained and does well with other dogs.  Nelson enjoys going for walks and riding in the car.  He is a good natured little guy. He would love a home with another dog to play with and no small children.

Our dogs, other than Nelson are currently visiting with potential new families.  Please check with the Mesquite Animal Shelter for dogs they may have available at this time.

Pet adoption:  Our next pet adoption in Mesquite is after the first of the year on January 2, 2016 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Suite 1 at 150 N. Yucca Street. If you want to see one of our available animals before or after our pet adoption, please contact us and we will arrange a meet and greet at everyone’s convenience.

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 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 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 or by mail at WCFA, P.O.
