WCFA’S featured pet is Molly, a delightfully happy miniature dachshund. WCFA saved Molly from a high-intake Las Vegas shelter. Molly’s tail constantly wags. 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 all well-mannered dogs.  Molly has received a dental. Her bloodwork results are fine and other than her limited vision, she is in excellent health. Molly weighed in at 17 lbs at shelter intake and is now down to 14 lbs in our care. Her ideal weight should be about 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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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.

Whitey and Mocha are new to WCFA.  They are social and very active.  They are about 10 weeks old and have received their first vaccines.  Both should be altered within the next two weeks.  If you are interested in one or both of these handsome young felines, please complete our pre-adoption application at www.wecareforanimals.org.  If you have questions, please call Karen at 435-862-9574.


Beamer is a four year old orange tabby.  Our sweet Beamer has been in foster care for quite some time and we just can’t believe someone has not taken this sweet boy. 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 would be good for an individual who wants a loving companion or a nice couple.  He is neutered and current on his vaccines. If you would love a friendly orange cat, apply to adopt Beamer at wecareforanimals.org.




Hamilton is a Heinz 57 dog with some heeler and possibly hound or dobie somewhere in the mix.  He is about 5 months old and still learning to walk well on leash and show good manners.  Hamilton is very sweet but needs someone with patience to help him along with his training.  Hamilton came to us when his owner could no longer care for him.  He has a limp on his back left leg.  WCFA is working with the vet to determine the best care for Hamilton. Hamilton’s limp does not slow him down.  He loves to run and to play with other dogs.  We would be happy to update you on his status if you are interested in him.  You can contact Karen at 435-862-9574.
