WCFA’S featured pet is Beamer a five year old orange tabby. 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.

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 Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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.
Angel is 9 years young. She is in great health. Angel is a very loving, sweet natured lady. Her owner’s health required her to turn Angel over to us. Angel is used to a quiet home and would do well with a nice couple or a single person. She loves to be petted and brushed. Angel will make a great companion. She is a beautiful, long haired, dilute calico. Angel is up to date on vaccines and is spayed. We are offering a senior discount of 10% for any senior citizen adopting Angel.
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.
Emslee and Gus are about 9 weeks old and have had their first vaccines and been dewormed. They are very sweet kittens and we are accepting applications at this time. They will not leave WCFA until after they are altered and we have done home checks and approved potential adopters.
We have five more kittens that will be available several weeks from now. Two boys are black and the three girls are calico, black and white.
Bella is a delightful little dog. She is 8-1/2 years, house trained, weighs 16 lbs, a Chihuahua-Corgi blend who loves people, snuggles, walks and playful dogs. Bella gets along very well with the dogs in her foster home and loves to play. She does well on leash but needs slow introductions to other leashed dogs before she is comfortable with them. The ideal home for Bella is one with another compatible canine companion and a dog door and fenced yard.
Bella is spayed, current on vaccines and will be microchipped. Her adoption fee is $60.
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.
If you are a senior citizen of Mesquite and looking for a companion pet, please consider one of our senior pets to make your new best friend.
- Senior dogs and cats in rescues or shelters need homes just as badly as younger ones. These older pets were once owned and loved by someone. Often they are turned over to a rescue or shelter because of a move or death in the family. Just like puppies and kittens, they make loyal and loving companions.
- Older dogs usually come trained and understand at least basic commands. Most older dogs are potty-trained and have mastered the basic commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “down.” Adopting an already-trained dog will save you a lot of time and energy that you’d normally have to dedicate towards training a young dog. Older pets are happy with a slower paced life.
- You can teach an old dog new tricks. Dogs can be trained at any age and older dogs are just as smart as younger ones. Older dogs have a greater attention span than a puppy, which make them easier to train.
Cats are calmer and will adapt to new quieter home.
- Older dogs and cats are calmer and less energetic than younger dogs. An adult dog has graduated from the puppy stage and has an established demeanor and temperament, which will give you an instant idea of how it will fit into your household. Older dogs have all their adult teeth and are out of the energetic puppy phase, which will result in less destruction to your home. Many of them do well with young children as they have a lower energy level and have possibly lived with them in their past homes.
Older cats are more content to relax and don’t get into everything like a curious kitten will do.
- Older dogs and cats make instant companions. Unlike a puppy, which requires leash training, etc. an older dog is ready to accompany you on a long walk and already knows how to play fetch. An adult dog will make a great workout partner, a loyal companion, and a late night snuggle buddy.
Older cats are happier hanging out with you rather than needing constant play stimulation and direction.
