WCFA’S featured pet is Archie.  Archie’s family moved and couldn’t take him. He is an 8 month old doxie/papillion mix, also looks like a little sheltie! He is very cute… that we know. Very sweet boy. He has a beautiful coat; reddish tan in color. Archie is house trained but being a young dog needs to be taken out often or he will have an accident. He walks well on the leash and rides very quietly in the car. He does well with other dogs and loves to play with toys. Archie met his first cat and did very well.  He weighs about 9.5 pounds. He will bark when someone comes to the door. Archie is learning the doggie door; so he would do best in a home with another dog and a fenced yard to play and run in! Archie will be neutered and micro chipped within the next week.

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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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

 Bella is gorgeous 5 year old Maine Coon.  Bella does not like to share attention with other animals so needs to be the only pet in the home.  No small children.  Bella is friendly but will hide at first until she feels comfortable. Patience will be rewarded when she comes out to share her true friendly nature.  She is current on all vaccines and spayed.


 Joey is a sweet and happy Shih Tzu, 13 years young, with lots of life and love to give. He came into WCFA’s care when one of his owners passed and the other went to a nursing facility. Joey is an easy peasy dog who is a joy to be around. He enjoys leisurely walks, sleeping in and is house trained with a dog door. Joey recently received a dental, his blood work results are very good, and he is current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Joey weighs about 15 lbs. When Joey came into our care, he suffered from allergies. Now with once daily allergy medication (Apoquel) and changing his diet, his allergies are under control. Joey has a mild case of dry eye and receives eye drops (Tacrolimus) once daily. Joey looked a bit ragged when he came into our care, but thank you to our friends at La de’ Paws Grooming Salon in Mesquite, he is looking quite handsome now! Joey would enjoy a quiet home with someone or a couple who appreciates a sweet senior dog who will continue his medications, diet and grooming. He loves people and is fine with other calm dogs


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.
