Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary
Those involved with Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary take pride in finding the right home for dogs in their care. Here are their pets of the week.
My name is Freddie. I am deaf. I know my hand signals for good boy, no, etc. My D.O.B. is 2/21/11. I am super sweet and loving with the staff at MAS. I do however need a little time to warm up to people I do not know. I am deaf and need to build a relationship with you first. I would need to have older kids in the home…possibly teenagers. Lots of high activity and young children may make me nervous. A structured environment. I have had playmates that are other dogs, but need just the right one. I love car rides and I do great in the car. I am okay with cats, but would still recommend safe area’s for the cats, and slowly integrating us together. gone into a Pet Smart with volunteers and done well. He has also dressed up as a shark…and tolerated it. I love to do agility with my favorite staff member at MAS. I dress up like a shark for Halloween. I am the perfect dog, for a quiet loving home, and human that really wants a handsome dog to have as a forever companion.
Here is a video of Freddie doing agility!
Eli’s coming!!! Eli’s coming better watch your heart now!!! His D.O.B. is 4/24/14, he is around 44 lbs. What a sweet dog. He is blind, but that does not seem to get him down. He is a super happy and fun dog. He is good with a crate or not problem left alone, he would just need to know the lay of the land. He knows sit, down, stay and come. He loves plush squeaky toys, tug toys, and tennis balls. He is a great companion, and a special loving dog.
Vicky’s Pet Connection
Vicky’s Pet Connection works with the Kent County Animal Shelter to rescue cats and kittens. They also take in dogs older in age and those needing special care. Here are their pets of the week.
Whew! Being a mom to 5 little kittens is HARD work! Luckily, they are growing up now and ready to find their own homes. But, that means that I now have to find a new family to love! My name is Frannie and I’m a silky-soft 1-2 year old girl with lots of love to give. Do you have room in your heart for an “empty nester” like me?
This pretty girl deserves a medal! Not only did she raise her own kittens, but she has been working as a “surrogate mom” by helping to care for some of our orphaned kittens as well! Molly is such a sweet girl and TOTALLY deserves to be loved and spoiled herself! She’s only a year or two old so she’s got plenty of years ahead to love you back!
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue look to find dogs and sometimes cats in their care forever homes with the help of foster homes. Here are their pets of the week.
Meet Buster! He is a 12 year old beagle who can really only be described as wonderful. While he loves to go for walks or hang out in the yard, Buster’s favorite thing to do is nap on something comfy – either a dog bed, on your lap, or right against your side. He loves to be close to you and is a really laid back companion. In true beagle fashion he absolutely loves to sniff around the yard or while out on a walk so he will need a fenced in yard, but he isn’t a barker unless he picks up on a really good scent. Buster is wonderful with dogs, cats, and kids of all ages and size! He is doing really well with house training, but his new family will have to continue to work with him on this. Buster is crate trained as well. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. His adoption fee is $200. To adopt Buster apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Introducing Beautiful Bella! Bella is a 1.5 year old blond lab-pit mix who loves to play hard just as much as she loves to lounge on the sofa and snuggle. She’d like you to know that she’s not only a looker, but has brains too! Bella would love someone who will spend time socializing her and teaching her new tricks. She already knows sit, down, shake and stay! Although Bella loves car rides, doggy play dates and daily walks, she is very shy with new people. Her confidence soars however, when she’s with other fun loving, nice doggies. She would do best in a home that has at least one other good dog who can help her get over her fears and be her constant play mate. Bella also has no idea that she’s a big dog, so having older children would probably be better than having younger tots in her forever home. She is learning crate training but doesn’t love it. However, she does do well when left to roam her home when her people absolutely have to leave her. Bella is house trained, up to date on her vaccines, spayed and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200. To adopt Bella apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/

My name is Ferris Bueller. I am rather shy, though I am getting better. I have started enjoying some attention. If you are patient with me, I’m sure you and I will become good friends.
My name is Izabelle, I came from Lebenon with my 3 sisters, my sisters have found forever homes. I am a still kinda shy and would like a quiet home. I do like to be petted and love scritches. If you are patient I think that we can become friends.
