Tucker-aa_Mesquite_8-14-16 (2)WCFA’s featured pet is Tucker. Tucker’s outlook on life is that it’s all about the FUN. Tucker is a well-behaved but energetic dog who loves walks, water, and playing fetch.

He is looking for a new home with someone who can provide him with the companionship and exercise he needs because Tucker just wants to be someone’s buddy and playmate.

Tucker is just six years old, very friendly, and loves adults, kids, and other dogs. He may also love and get along well with cats, but we’re not sure he’s ever had a chance to meet one.

He knows the commands sit and stay and he is house-trained and will use a dog door. He will probably pull when on leash, but this is normal for a 70-plus lb. fun-loving Lab who has four legs to your two. We can help you with training solutions to help you convince Tucker pulling isn’t necessary. Tucker is neutered and current on vaccinations. He will be microchipped prior to adoption. If you’re looking for a fun-loving, loyal pal, Tucker may be your guy.

Available Cats/kittens: 

We have three, 8 week old kittens that will be available to go to new homes in several weeks. If you are interested in any of these kittens, please complete our application to adopt. Basic black is always in style and these three black kittens are happy, friendly little guys—Cooper, Hunter and Mason. 

Available Dogs:  

Berkeley has had a bit of a rough start in life. He recently came back to WCFA through no fault of his own because a member of his human family is not well and has ongoing out-of-town doctor visits. Probably because he’s experienced so many changes, Berkeley has a tendency to want to bond strongly with one person, and he can be a little bit over-protective of that individual. We feel he would do best in a home with a woman or a mature couple who understand him and are willing to manage Berkeley’s protective nature. He will need to learn that life is good when he gets a stable home and that there’s no need to be bossy.

Pet Events: Our next pet adoption will be August 27th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (our summer hours) at Suite 1, 150 North Yucca in Mesquite. If you have an interest in our adoptable pets please go to wecareforanimals.org to complete an application online. 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.

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.

Summer and Spay/neuter: Summer brings lots of fun times but it also brings many newborn kittens that often cannot find homes. We are dedicated to eliminating unwanted litters of kittens and puppies through our spay/neuter program. 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.

WCFA/ANIMAL SHELTER: 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.
