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.
Hi, my name is “Moose”. My D.O.B is 10/16/12. I am a guy who loves car rides, and I do happen to ride great in the car, if I do say so myself. I’m also pretty smart as I know sit, shake, high five, lay down, and sit pretty — and I am almost there with “wait” when walking through a door way.
Squeaky toys and tennis balls are my favorite thing in the world, and I love to swim in the pond. I absolutely love peanut butter kongs! They are at the top of my list for favorite things. Snuggling with my favorite people and running and playing outside are pretty high up on my favorites list to. I’m a little picky about which dogs that I like to hang out with…I don’t like other male dogs particularly. I’m looking for an active family that will continue to teach me new commands and will also have a physical fenced yard so I can run and play in a safe area. I can be a little jumpy sometimes, so I would do best in a home with older kids.
Monroe, is a cutie pie, just look at that face. He is a dog that likes to cuddle once he gets to know you. His D.O.B. is 8/13/14. He can be very shy when he first meets you but warms up quickly. He is going to need an experienced owner, as he can be temperamental at times. He likes to go for walks, and loves to try and sit in your lap. He would be best in a home with no children. He loves treats and toys, and may try to shred soft plushy toys. He is okay with some dogs, and tempermental with others, so probably would be best as an only doggie.
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.
Hi there! We are two little siblings named Frodo and Farrah. We’re part of a litter of kittens whose names all begin with the letter “F”. We’re just 9 weeks old so everything is so new to us! We can’t wait to learn all about the world so we do lots of running, playing and exploring. We’re a little shy at first but we’ll warm up if you are gentle with us and we feel extra brave if one of our brothers or sisters are with us. So, if you have room in your home and heart, why not adopt TWO of us??
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.
Do you love long walks with one you love? Does your lap feel lonely while watching netflix? Do you wish you had a close shadow everywhere you go? You need to meet Miss Sadie! Sadie is a gentle 2 ½ year old Beagle girl who loves every man, woman and child she meets. She lives to just be with her people; playing, walking, sleeping or just sitting on your lap hanging out. She adores playing with her foster siblings, but would be fine as an only dog if you spent most of your time with her! She’s a bit of a drama queen if you leave to go anywhere without her, (what beautiful girl isn’t?) so she would fit better with a family who doesn’t leave her alone most of the hours of the week for work or school if she can’t come along. Like most young hounds, Sadie needs a secure physical fenced in yard for you to throw her a stick, to get her sniffer satisfied, to run around like a crazy girl and to keep her safe while doing her normal lady business. Although she is a quiet girl until you have to leave without her, Sadie is not an apartment pooch! Sadie is house trained, up to date on her vaccines, spayed and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200. To adopt Sadie, apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Carol’s Ferals specializes in trap, neuter, return (TNR), but they come across “friendlies” who are available for adoption. Here are their pets of the week.
This week we have a litter of three orange tabby Kittens. Brother Sabor & Sisters, Numa, and Sheeta are about 5 months old. Their Mother Jane is also available for adoption.
My name is Numa. My foster mom says I love to look out the window and try to catch anything I see. I love to be petted and playing with the “Red Dot” also known as a laser pointer. I loved to be petted but I’m not too crazy about being held. I will let you hold me for a short time then I’ll let you know that I’m ready to get down.
Sheeta is my name. My foster mother says that I can be kinda shy at first but I become loving quickly, I love to have butt scratches and when I want to cuddle You better not have other plans to go anywhere until I’m done cuddling.
His foster Mom says Sabor loves to play but also loves to just get love, so it usually turns into an ADHD game of running back and forth trying to get all the love and all of the play at the same time.
