WCFA’S featured pets are Eeyore and Sansa. Eeyore and Sansa are about 5 months old. They are looking for forever homes. Eeyore and Sansa are sweet pups and have learned basic commands like sit and stay. They are going to be big dogs so would do best with no small children. We would like someone who has experience with large breed dogs and the pit bull breed, and has the patience and energy to keep up with a young dog. If you are interested in Eeyore or his sister, Sansa, please complete our pre-adoption pet application found at www.wecareforanimals.org. We do home checks as part of our pre-adoption procedure.

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 Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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.
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 is the most loving cat and would be good in a home with another calm cat. He would be good for an individual or nice couple who want a loving companion. 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.
Emily and Rachel are looking for forever homes. Their foster family has taken great care of them and they are all very social, happy kittens. They are altered, current on vaccines and are micro chipped. These kittens are so fun to watch. They love to play and it would be nice if they could be adopted together 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.

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.

Myth/truth about pit bull terriers:
Myth: Pit bull terriers are more aggressive than other dogs.
The truth: The American Temperament Test Society, which provides a uniform national program of temperament testing for dogs, has found that pit-bull-terrier-like dogs passed the test at a higher rate than many other dog breeds, such as golden retrievers and border collies. Some people think these dogs are somehow physiologically and genetically different from other dogs, but they aren’t.
Myth: It’s easy to identify a dog’s breed by looking at him or her.
The truth: It’s been shown that almost 90 percent of shelter dogs visually identified as a particular breed are not identified accurately. When we look at dogs of unknown parentage, the best we can do is guess at their breed, and it turns out that even dog experts are usually wrong. We label them with breeds that aren’t actually in their genetic makeup, and we often aren’t able to identify breeds that are in their genetic makeup.
This misidentification becomes a huge problem when municipalities pass laws and ordinances that contain provisions discriminating against dogs of certain breeds, such as pit bull terriers. The laws end up adversely affecting not only dogs of the targeted breeds, but many other dogs who simply look like them.
Myth: Some dog breeds are more dangerous than others.
The truth: A peer-reviewed study found that nearly 85 percent of dog bite fatalities were from unneutered dogs, and the co-occurring factors that led to bites were things like lack of socialization and positive interactions with people and animals, abuse or neglect, and tethering for long periods of time. Breed had nothing to do with it.
Myth: Pit bull terriers have locking jaws that make their bites more dangerous.
The truth: Pit bull terriers are physiologically no different from any other dog out there. There are no locking jaws; it just doesn’t exist.
Myth: Pit bull terriers are not family dogs. Only bad people have them.
The truth: According to Vetstreet.com, the American pit bull terrier is one of the top three favorite breeds in 28 states. So, the idea that they’re reserved for certain types of people is false. There are millions of these dogs in our country, and they’re family pets, therapy dogs and service animals, just like other dogs. Any kind of dog can make a great pet.
