WCFA’S featured pet is Molly.    Meet Molly, a miniature dachshund, who is WCFA’s newest adoptable dog! WCFA saved Molly in late July from the high-intake Las Vegas shelter. Molly is a delightfully happy dog. Her tail constantly wags and she enjoys belly rubs. Molly is 12 years and has very limited eyesight, but that doesn’t stop her from finding her way around her foster home and the dog door. She enjoys exploring the back yard and finds her way back through the dog door. Molly does very well with well-mannered dogs.

Molly recently received a dental. Her bloodwork results were fine and other than her limited vision, she is in excellent health. Molly weighed in at 17 lbs at the shelter and is now down to 14.9 lbs in our care. Her ideal weight should be 10-11 lbs. Molly is looking for an adult home dedicated to continuing her weight loss and taking her on regular short walks.

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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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. 

Zayn is about a year old.  Zayn is a gorgeous looking cat, but is often overlooked because he appears so shy. Zayn has made a complete turnaround and has turned into an affectionate, loving cat, when placed in a home environment as an only pet or if you are interested in two cats, Zayn does get along great with Beamer.   Once he feels secure in a home, his true, very affectionate personality comes out.  Zayn just needs the opportunity to show you how loving and sweet he can be.

Petunia  is about 13 weeks old.  She has now been altered and is seeking her forever home and family.  She has had her vaccines. Petunia is very outgoing and sweet.  Her siblings have now found their new homes and now Petunia needs a loving home. 

Beamer is a 4 year old orange tabby.  Our sweet Beamer has been in foster care for a few months and we’re not sure why he has been overlooked. Beamer is a very friendly guy, loves belly rubs and will come to greet you in his foster home. Beamer would enjoy being the only cat or in a home with another calm cat. He is neutered and current on his vaccines. If you would love a friendly orange cat, apply to adopt Beamer at wecareforanimals.org.


No dogs other than Molly at this time.

Sleeps and Naps: Feline Style

Cats are the world’s best sleepers. They slumber away about 60% of their lives–16 hours out of 24. At this rate a nine-year old cat has been awake for only about three years! Since cats are so efficient at obtaining their protein-rich food, they have plenty of time to rest up for the next hunting trip (or visit to the kitchen). A typical feline day includes over fifteen hours of sleeping, and dozing,
