Patches and Curly Sue

Patches and Curly Sue

WCFA’s featured pets are Patches and Curley Sue. Patches and Curly Sue were born June 25 and are sociable and healthy kittens.  As their photos show these girls are both beautiful.  Patches is a calico with grey and orange over white and Curley Sue has grey markings over white.

American Shorthair cats are a good all-around, all-American cat characterized by good temperament, a friendly nature, easy trainability and adaptable personality.

If you’d like to meet and/or adopt Patches or Curly Sue, please complete the online adoption application at They will be spayed in a few weeks before they can go home with a new family and will also be up to date on shots.

 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.

Buddy is a happy and healthy approximately 2-year-old terrier mix who loves to be with people.

Buddy would love to have another small dog as a companion.  He is house-trained and will use a dog door, but he does need a secure yard because he likes to explore and hunt due to his terrier tendencies.  He weighs in at about 9 lbs., has been neutered and micro-chipped and is current on his shots.

Doogie is a happy Dachshund. His tail moves so fast that the wag has turned to a blur in his photos.

Doogie is approximately 2 years old.  He has been sleeping through the night in his foster home and going outside to go potty in the morning.  He’s enjoying strutting along nicely while walking on leash and is friendly to all the other dogs he’s met.

He weighs just over 15 lbs., has been neutered, micro-chipped, and is current on his shots.

Available Cats/kittens: 

Besides Curley Sue and Patches, we have seven more kittens available for adoption; Callie, Inky, Misty and Tuck to name a few.  Callie is available now and the other six (a nice colorful variety) will be available in several weeks but we are accepting applications now.

Pet Events:  Our next pet adoption will be September 10th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at Suite 1, 150 North Yucca in Mesquite.  If you have an interest in our adoptable pets please go to 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 to complete our foster application.
