WCFA’S featured pet is Joey.  Joey is a Shih Tzu mix.  He is a very sweet, easy going, happy dog. Joey enjoys going for walks, is fine with other dogs and loves people. He is house trained.

Joey is 13 years young and weighs about 15 pounds.  He is neutered, current on vaccines and micro chipped.  Joey is in good health and recently had a dental. He does take allergy medication (Apoquel) and he will need to be groomed on a regular basis. If you want someone to be your friend and hang out, Joey is the one.

Other Available Pets

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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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

Please check the Mesquite Animal Shelter for available cats.

DOGS: See Joey listed above.


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.
