Shelter Sketches: Meet Tye

In an attempt to bring attention to the disastrous bush fires throughout Australia I looked for an animal who had been affected by the fires and was available for adoption. During my search I came across this week’s Shelter Sketch and had to stop there. As far as I know, Tye wasn’t made homeless or injured by the fires, but just take a look at his smile and you’ll see why I couldn’t pass him up!

Meet Tye

Tye is a large adult male American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He is about three years old and a total softy. He loves to play and knows some basic commands, but is very strong on leash. He needs a home where he will be walked regularly, and given proper socialization and lots of mental stimulation. Then again, that applies to pretty much every dog! Won’t you consider bringing Tye into your home?

Shelter Sketches: Meet Ellie Mae

We’ve got a real looker this week! Check her out. :)

Meet Ellie Mae

Ellie Mae is a young female calico cat. She was abandoned by her former guardians when they moved away and she had some tough times on her own. Despite that she is incredibly affectionate and adores people. She loves attention and enjoys playing as well. Ellie Mae is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and house-trained. A perfect girl looking for her perfect forever home!

Shelter Sketches: Meet Mickey

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!

Meet Mickey

Mickey is a female cat, believed to be 14 or 15 years old. She was brought to animal control as a stray, and was very sick. Thanks to the Empty Cages Collective and Manhattan Cat Specialists she’s doing well, and her hyperthyroidism (which is fairly common in older cats) is under control now that she’s on methimazole. Mickey was very scared at first, but she’s getting used to people. She loves to curl up in a nice, warm place while someone pats her head. Can you give Mickey the forever home for which she’s been waiting so long?

Shelter Sketches: Meet Lucy

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a couple weeks! I was getting a little burnt out and had to take a break. But I’m back this week with a lovely girl who my mom found on Petfinder.

Meet Lucy

Lucy is an adult female Brittany Spaniel mix. She’s a sweet girl who has already learned a lot of manners and tricks, including “sit,” “down,” and waiting nicely when she hears her leash. Lucy is house-trained and up-to-date on vaccinations. She will make an absolutely wonderful walking and hiking companion for someone, and of course, a great friend. :)

Shelter Sketches: Meet Muffin

Today is National Mutt Day in the US! So go give your mutts – canine or feline – a big hug!

Meet Muffin

Muffin is an adult female who loves people and has a great personality! She gets along well with others cats, too, and is spayed, up-to-date on vaccination, and house-trained. Muffin does have a medical condition: Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. It’s an easily managed condition, though, and just means that Muffin has to eat wet food rather than dry. She will make a wonderful friend for the right forever family!
