WCFA’S featured pet is Peanut.  Peanut is a Chihuahua mix and is 12 years old.  Peanut came to us after living with an elderly lady in a small RV.  Peanut weighed 22 pounds which was way too much for his little body.  His fantastic foster parents have worked with Peanut for about four months.  He is now a healthy weight of 13 pounds.  He takes short walks and does aquatic exercises.  Peanut has a very loving, friendly, easy going personality.  He does take thyroid medication and may need an occasional antihistamine. Peanut is house trained, good with other dogs and friendly with everyone.  He makes you smile.

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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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. Angel has adjusted to dogs in her foster home so would be fine with a cat friendly dog. She is a beautiful, long haired, dilute calico.  Angel is up to date on vaccines and is spayed.  We are offering a senior discount for any senior citizen adopting Angel.

Beamer is 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.

Ella is looking for her forever after home.  She is a gorgeous 5 year old Maine Coon.  Ella does not like to share attention with other animals so needs to be the only pet in the home.  No small children.  Ella 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.  Ella would love a home with a nice couple or single individual.

Boots, Rachael, Ash and Emily are all looking for forever homes. Their foster family has taken great care of them and they are all very social, happy kittens. All will be altered in the next two weeks, are current on vaccines and will be micro chipped. These kittens are so fun to watch.  They love to play and it would be nice if they could be adopted in pairs or with another young cat in the family.

Silva and her bonded friend, Cal, are looking for their forever home. Silva is 12 years young and a very shy, gentle cat. Cal is 4 years old and also very shy.  Both of these cats have been together for several years. They were owned by a single, elderly woman. Although extremely shy, both cats are non-aggressive and once they feel secure will make great, easy going, quiet companions.  They enjoy being brushed and being petted.


 Feather (formerly Robin) is a sweet, playful and loving Rat Terrier mix. Feather walks well on leash, knows the dog door, loves being in your lap and enjoys car rides. She enjoys being with other dogs. The ideal home for Feather is one with another playful canine companion, a secure fenced yard (she can be a runner) and a dog door. She enjoys having the freedom of a dog door to go out and enjoy the sunshine and yard. Feather is approximately one year of age, weighs 7.8 lbs., is spayed, micro chipped and current on vaccines.
