WCFA’s featured pet is Zayn. Zayn is about a year old. Zayn is a gorgeous looking cat, but is often overlooked because he is so shy. Zayn is very passive so you need to initiate first contact. Once you cuddle him he will warm up to you. Zayn is altered and current on vaccines.

Other Available Pets:
Cats do not enjoy being confined in a cage. The cats we have for adoption show best in a home environment. If you see a cat you like, to truly see his or her personality, you should ask us to arrange a time, at your convenience, to meet the cat in his/her foster home. Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing. Please give these felines a chance by meeting them “outside the cage”. Taking one of these felines for a sleep over is another way to get to know them better before adopting. Ask us about our sleep over policy.
Beamer, formerly Creamy, is a 4 year old orange tabby. He is a sweet boy that might do best in a home where he is the only cat. Beamer has been with other cats but is selective on his choice of friends. He is very non-aggressive and tends to be the one picked on. Beamer would do best on a kidney healthy diet. Beamer loves a cat tree where he can watch the outside world. He will bond easily with his human.
Taylor is about 2 years old. She is a sweet girl and has come a long way in in her foster home. She likes people and enjoys exploring. Taylor is altered, current on vaccines and micro chipped. Taylor is a beautiful white/with black markings feline. Taylor has learned to walk on leash with a harness and enjoys checking things out with her human. She would be very content in a home where she can wander around the house, visit with her humans and relax. Taylor shows best in a home environment setting.
Punkin is 13 years young. She is a beautiful Seal Point Himalayan. She is declawed in front. Punkin will need to be on a special diet for kidney issues. Otherwise she is very healthy and is doing well in her foster home. She is getting along well with the other cat in her foster home so would be fine with another mild mannered cat. A quiet home would be her preference with no small children. Punkin is very sweet and enjoys being petted and hanging out on a cat condo.
Our four, 9 week old kittens are Simba (orange), Nala (orange & white), Kiara (calico), and Rafiki (calico/gray stripe). Simba is the only male. They have received their first vaccines and been checked thoroughly by the vet. These kittens have been well socialized and are very sweet. If you are interested in a kitten you can complete our pre-adoption application. We can do a home check. The kittens will not be released to their new homes until they have been altered.
Henry is a four year old boxer/pit bull mix. He is a friendly guy and lives with a small dog. He would probably do well with any well mannered dog he is properly introduced to. Henry is house trained, altered and current on vaccines. Henry is overweight and needs a home with a yard and a family who will give him regular exercise.
WCFA offers a wonderful low-cost/free opportunity to spay/neuter your pets to prevent accidental litters and keep your pet happy and healthy. We will always alter feral cats to be released back in their environment. 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.
WALKING YOUR DOG
When walking your dog, keep in mind that if it feels hot enough to fry an egg outside, it probably is. When the air temperature is 86 degrees, the asphalt can reach a sizzling 135 degrees — more than hot enough to cook an egg in five minutes. And it can do the same to our canine companions’ sensitive foot pads.
On an 87-degree day, asphalt temperatures can reach 140 degrees, hot enough to cause burns, permanent damage and scarring after just one minute of contact. Rapid burns and blistering can occur at 150 degrees. Hot sidewalks, pavement and parking lots can not only burn paws, they also reflect heat onto dogs’ bodies , increasing their risk of deadly heatstroke.
Please don’t make your dog walk on hot pavement. Always test the pavement with your hand before setting out (too hot to touch is too hot for Spot), walk early in the morning or late at night when it’s cooler, carry water and take frequent breaks in shady spots and never make dogs wear muzzles that restrict their breathing.
