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  Some of our sweetest cats can come across as cranky or withdrawn when they are placed in the crate for viewing.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

Emily and Rachel are looking for forever homes. Their foster family has taken great care of them and they are both 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.  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.

Mia is new to WCFA.  She is an 8 year old grey tabby.  Mia’s owner has gone into a nursing home so now Mia is a looking for a new forever home.  Mia is declawed on her front paws.  Because she is overweight she is on a weight management diet to help her slim down. WCFA will provide her new owner with her food for three months.  Mia is very friendly and would enjoy being your companion in a quiet home.  She is current on vaccines, spayed and microchipped.

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 fine in a home with another calm cat.  He is currently in a foster with two other nice cats and gets along with them just fine.  Beamer 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.

Stormy is a 4 month old sweet little girl. She is gray with white markings. She has received her first set of vaccines, has been dewormed and is scheduled to be spayed and micro chipped on August 28th. Stormy is playful and is currently being fostered in a home with two other foster kittens.


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.

Tucker is a Beagle/Jack Russell mix.  He is about 6-7 years old, weighs 27 lbs. and is neutered and current on vaccines.  He had a dental and has been micro chipped.   Tucker gets along well with other dogs and with cats.  He is very friendly, enjoys a nice walk each day and rides well in the car.  He really wants to hang around with his humans.  Tucker is house trained and knows a dog door.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day on August 28th sets aside a day to remember the pet companions we’ve lost.

The death of a pet, whether furry, feathered, or an uncommon variety, is felt deeply. They become family and a familiar part of our lives. Mourning their death is different for everyone, and the observance provides a way to help heal the ache of loss.

The pain of loss is real. As each person travels through their grief, we remember the companionship and comfort they provided to us. Don’t forget that part of the relationship included care provided by you. The empty space left by the loss of a beloved pet is sometimes a difficult void to overcome.

Celebrate the home you provided and the joy your beloved pet brought you in return. When you are ready, you will know the time has arrived to find a new ‘critter’ to replace the emptiness felt. There are many animals yet to find a home. In time, you can be their new home.

HOW TO OBSERVE  #RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay

Take time to enjoy memories of your pet. Look through pictures. Consider a visit to an animal shelter if you feel ready. Volunteering time may help the adjustment.


Deborah Barnes founded Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day in honor of her cat, Mr. Jazz. Cats are fascinating and lovable, little friends to have around the home. We miss them when they leave us. Truthfully, it’s the same with any pet.
