WCFA’s featured pet is Rocky. If a polite, playful little white dog appeals to you, it just doesn’t get any better than Rocky!



We rescued Rocky from the Las Vegas shelter last week, and he’s been an angel from the minute he arrived in his foster home. He’s polite to both people and other dogs, and has started to play very nicely with the other dogs in his foster home. He loves (and we mean loves) to go for walks.

We’re not sure what happened to Rocky in his previous life, but we’ve noticed that he likes to keep an eye on the people that are taking good care of him. He will appreciate having a safe, dependable home.

He’ll sleep on your bed if you let him, and take himself outside through a dog door, if it’s available, when nature calls. If there’s not a dog door handy, he’ll count on you to take him out. Repeat: he loves walks!

Rocky is about 3-4 years old and weighs just over 15 lbs. He could actually stand to gain a little weight. Our best guess is that he’s a combo of Schnauzer and Poodle, but he may have some Westie or Maltese thrown in. He is neutered and current on vaccinations.

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. Kira is a beautiful little tortoiseshell kitten and her brothers, Cooper and Mason, are gorgeous black kittens.

Other 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.
