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 Boston. My D.O.B. is 4/04/15. I have been told that I am a super pretty dude. I am a guy who has been tossed from a couple different shelters and finally landed at MAS. I am doing well here and working on some things to help me find my new home. I will need an experienced household, but once I find the right one, I know we will have the best life together.
My name is Indie-Anna-Jones. My D.O.B is 5/9/14. I love spending time with people and will try to be a lap dog if you let me. I would do best in a home without any small animals, including kitty cats, I just am not the biggest fan, and will display prey drive. I love to follow my nose, so I do need a home with a physical fenced yard. I absolutely love toys – especially ones that squeak! I do like to shred them though. I love to be active and need a family that can get me out for walks and play time. I am good at running next to the golf cart up and down the roads at Mackenzie’s.
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.
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.
Sweet Ruby is a gem. She’s uncommonly kind and very affectionate. Ruby is a 7 year old, 60 pound Hound Mix who came to our rescue years ago but was recently returned. This smart girl is house trained, crate trained and knows several commands !! Ruby would prefer a more active home that will give her lots of exercise. She would do best in a home with another well behaved relaxed dog. Ruby needs a stable home that will provide her with the consistency and structure she needs to continue flourishing. Ruby is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. Ruby’s adoption fee is $200. To adopt Ruby apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
This little buttercup Elsie is 20 pounds of sweet fun-loving puppy girl. She loves to play with toys and snuggle on the couch with her people. She’s learning lots of things including how to go potty outside and sleep in the crate. She’s very respectful of other animals and can be shy at first with new people. Our best guess is she is around 4 to 5 months and mixed with lab and lots of love. There’s no doubt she’ll be a big dog. She knows sit and has the most adorable little snore. Elsie’s ideal home would be with someone who is ready to train and love a puppy for all her life. Are you ready for a new family member? Her adoption fee is $300. Apply to adopt her here: https://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.
Hi, I’m Morrissey! I’m about two years old and came to Carol’s Ferals recently after I was rescued. I’m a very sweet boy who loves looking out windows and bird watching, so my new home definitely needs to have some good window nap locations. Come See me Sundays 2 to 5 pm and Thursdays 6 to 8 PM.
Hi, I’m Graham. I was rescued in April 2018 and came to Carol’s shortly after. I’m a friendly guy! I would love to find a furever family that would keep me safe and give me lots of love and attention. Come see me Sundays or Thursdays.
Hi, I’m Miko. I was born in September 2017, and came to Carol’s a few months later. I was adopted for awhile, but it didn’t work out and I was brought back here. I know my perfect furever home is out there for me; could it be yours? I’m a little shy, so I’ll need a family that will be patient with me. I lived with older kids so I’d probably be okay with them, but I’m not sure about little kids. Come see me Sunday 2 to 5 PM.
