Missy

Amy

WCFA’S featured pets are Missy and Amy:  Missy (calico) and Amy (orange/white tabby), are a bonded pair of very sweet young cats.  They are about 1 year old, altered, micro chipped and current on vaccines.  Their owner could no longer care for them and asked us to place them together with a good family.  Missy is the more curious of the two but both are friendly and playful.  They both love attention.

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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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

 Fiona and Rascal are a bonded pair of young cats looking for a new home.  Fiona is about 1 ½ years old and a ring tailed, short haired tabby.  She is a lap cat and is very playful.  Rascal is a short haired tabby, ring tailed and has white on his legs and chest. He is about two years old, playful and loves to burrow under blankets.  Both cats are altered, micro chipped and current on vaccines.

DOGS:

 Casey was pulled from the L.V. shelter where he came in as a stray. He is a 13 lb. terrier mix, neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. He looks like he could have some westie or poodle in him?? Thinking poodle as he dances! He is house trained, walks well on the leash and rides great in the car. He does well with other dogs, cats unknown. Casey has learned the dog door. He sleeps right through the night. Casey was neutered at A.F. in 2011 so he is 9-10 years old but is very agile and athletic. His soft coat is very low shedding. He would not need to be groomed but did enjoy a bath. Casey’s dental is scheduled for Wed. Apr. 17. The wound on his back is healing nicely with antibiotics.

We have two 9 month old female poodle/shih Tzu mix pups that will be up for adoption in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned.

We are taking in a sweet shih Tzu/pug mix and will have more information in another week.

 SPAY/NEUTER

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. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU NEED HELP WITH SPAY/NEUTER.

FOSTER TO SAVE A HOMELESS PET

Reliable pet fosters are a must for any rescue.  The number of homeless and unwanted animals WCFA accepts will depend on whether a foster is available to accommodate a particular situation.

If you foster for us, WCFA will provide veterinarian care which includes spay/neuter, vaccines and necessary medical aid and medication for the foster animals.  We provide appropriate items for foster care such as litter, litter pans, food, toys, collars, leashes, etc.  Foster parents provide appropriate pet care, exercise enrichment, socialization basic obedience, house training, if needed, and most of all lots of love and a safe home until adoption.

 

Fostering is rewarding because you truly are saving a homeless, adoptable pet.  It takes dedication and the ability to adapt.  It can get emotional.  You may become attached to the pet and feel you cannot give it up.  Any foster will tell you they have experienced those emotions.  You come to realize by providing that safe home for your foster pet, you have saved a life and when it is adopted, you can work once again with a foster pet to help it find its new forever home.  The joy of seeing an animal placed in a loving, permanent home, knowing that as a foster parent you have directly made a difference in, or even saved the animal’s life, is extremely rewarding.
