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.
Kenny, came to MAS from being dropped off at another shelter. His D.O.B. is 7/17/14. He is slightly nervous to new things, but really loves attention and likes to give you kisses. He played great with another MAS dog named Lenny, and just seems to like to be with you. Too much kid energy makes him nervous. So best in a quieter home. He would love to go on walks, and play in a nice sized back yard. He was fine on his cat introduction as well. Life is good with Kenny around. Come and meet him soon.
My name is Gullivar (sometimes my friends call me Gully)! I guess you could say I’ve had my share of adventures…before I made my way to Mackenzie’s, I was taken in as a stray. Since I’ve been here, my adventures haven’t stopped! I’m a big dog – but that just means there’s more of me to love! I’m still pretty young, but I definitely have the best of both worlds – young enough to join you for a nice run in the morning or a hike…and afterwards we can crash on the couch for some Netflix! I’m not picky at all. Once I’m home, I’d be happy if my new family could keep bringing me along for adventures – I love car rides and ride quite nicely! I’ve made a bunch of canine friends during my time here, but I can be a little picky. I’d do best in a home without a cat, and have done well meeting kids here too. If you’re looking for a buddy for your adventures, look no further! Come see me soon!
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.
Giggles and Gabby are part of a litter of 3 tortoiseshell kittens whose names all start with the letter “G”! They are a friendly and social family that loves to run, explore and play. They are only 8-10 weeks old and the world is still pretty new to them so they spend a lot of time exploring and learning. These kittens can be adopted by ourselves but why not “double down” on the fun by adopted two kitties at once? It’s just more fun to have a friend to run, wrestle and play with!
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 Ellie! She is a 12 year old beagle, but don’t let her age fool you – she still has a lot of spunk! In true beagle fashion she loves to sniff around the yard and find a scent to follow, and she lives for food. She could use some general manners as she most likely was an outdoor dog her whole life, but since she’s a little older she really loves to nap and mostly just lounge around keeping an eye on things. She’s not big barkers (unless she finds a good trail to follow then she’ll be sure to notify you) and she is wonderful with all dogs and children. She is a big snuggler and loves to be held and touched. Ellie is working hard on potty training and is beginning to get the hang of the routine in her foster home. She will require a fenced in yard as she will follow her nose and has selective hearing if she thinks she’s onto something! If you don’t need personal space and want to be cuddled by an adorable and sweet beagle anytime you sit down then this is the girl for you! She is are spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. Her adoption fee is $200. To adopt Ellie apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Buster is a senior boy who is ready to fill a home with so much love. The first thing everyone who meets him says is what a good and friendly dog he is. Everyone is his friend. Buster is 12 years old, but he doesn’t let his age show outside of moving a little slower than a young dog. He loves to go for walks and car rides! He walks great on a leash and will walk right with you. When you’re at home he’s content to hang out on the couch or on a dog bed. He is house trained and does well in a crate, but he also does well not crated! He is amazing with cats and enjoys hanging out with dog friends though he isn’t very playful. Buster has done very well with the kids he has met and would do well with respectful kids. Buster is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. His adoption fee is $200. If you’re looking for a great companion with a goofy personality, apply to adopt Buster 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.
Hi, I’m Numa! I was born in April 2018, and went to a foster home at Carol’s Ferals shortly after. I was rescued in the Cherry Valley area as part of the one of the largest TNR projects in CF history!
Hi, I’m Bolt. I came to Carol’s Ferals in May 2018, and am a little over a year old. I’m very shy, so I’ll need an experienced owner to help me work through that. I’d also probably need a quiet home so that I can get more comfortable.
Hi, I’m Bronn! I came to Carol’s Ferals in June 2018 as part of the largest TNR project that they’ve ever taken on, I’m a very friendly guy, and I don’t mind being picked up and snuggled. I’d love a family of my own that would play with me and get me lots of toys!
