Pet of the Week - June 20, 2011

  • Written by Homeward Pet Adoption Center

Marilyn_POWWe don’t usually do re-runs of cats for the Cat of the Week, but Marilyn is certainly worthy of it. She has been with Homeward since last winter and has faced a series of challenges since we last featured her. We did discover that she is deaf, not a huge deal in cats as, let’s face it, cats don’t generally listen to us anyway. She has some kidney challenges, however right now she is feeling fine and content to just curl up in a human’s lap and purr. Marilyn was tolerant of some cats and dogs in her previous foster home. This pretty, petite diva likes to sleep on pillows next to her human and would be great company for a kind human with a big heart. This silver Persian gal has excellent litter box habits and a respectable appetite. We are looking for a long term foster home for Marilyn and Homeward will take care of any of her medical needs. We really don’t want to see Marilyn spend her golden years in our shelter. Can you help this special kitty?

Homeward Pet Adoption Center is located at 18800 Woodinville-Snohomish Rd, Woodinville. Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. www.homewardpet.org.

Ukie_POWAttention Beagle fans!

Homeward Pet is pleased to introduce you to Ukie. She is a very well-mannered nine year old who was surrendered after becoming a casualty of moving.

This senior girl dreams of finding someone who will keep her forever, in a home where she can enjoy her golden years.

Ukie is a delightful, little rotund dog who will impress you with her tricks. She knows several commands and will dance for you when she needs to go out.

At 36 pounds, she needs to slim down a bit, which is important for her overall future health, and to keep her tender knees feeling good.

She is great with both dogs and cats and would like to be placed with respectful children over the age of eight years old. Kids need to know that she is a little older and needs to be treated gently.

Her favorite activities include going for leisurely walks, sniffing around for interesting scents and goodies and eating.She would appreciate a home that doesn’t have too many stairs for her to navigate. She doesn’t ask for much — just a nice warm bed or a cozy spot right next to her person.

Ukie is quite personable and has many years of love to offer some lucky person. Come meet this little charmer at Homeward Pet today.

This month at Homeward Pet, spin the "Wheel of Feline Fortune" to determine your adoption fee. 

June is National Adopt A Shelter Cat month, and all month long, we’ll be making sure-thing matches on all adult (over 1 year old) cats like Sarge, but leave your adoption fee to chance. Will it be $5 off or $5 total?

All of the animals at Homeward receive full medical and behavioral evaluations and our adoption staff is adept at working to ensure a successful transition into a permanent, loving home. Homeward is located in the north side of the Clearwater Spa Building at 18800 Woodinville-Snohomish Road. Our new adoption hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 12-6 p.m. Contact us at (425) 488-4444 or on the web at www.homewardpet.org.

Sarge_POWSarge is a generously proportioned, declawed orange tabby who is in desperate need of an exercise buddy. His rather large size isn’t helping his chances of getting adopted as he weighs in at a whopping 28 pounds!

We have him on a diet here at Homeward, but we all know that a major part of a good weight loss program is exercise, and unfortunately he is not getting very much of that here.

Sarge got his name through a contest we ran on our Homeward Facebook page asking folks to help us come up with a great name for him.

Tons of our friends made really good suggestions, but this one was perfect as he really looks like a ‘Sarge.’ (The winning suggestion picked up a prize - "like" us on Facebook and join the fun!) This friendly 8 year old needs someone to get him slim and trim –any takers?!

Lucky_POW

It is rather ironic to have the name Lucky and end up living in an animal shelter, but hopefully this female feline will get adopted soon and earn her name. Wide eyed and beautifully marked, this brown and white tabby is more than ready to find her "forever" home. She is a year and a half old and her spunky personality and curious nature makes her a definite catch. Lucky had lived with an elderly owner who was no longer capable of caring for her. She had been rescued from a tree as a young kitten, so it is safe to say that Lucky’s life has not been dull. Since she has never lived with other animals or young children, Lucky would be best suited for a quiet, nurturing home where she can be spoiled rotten! Homeward is located at 18800 Woodinville-Snohomish Road. New adoption hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 12-6 p.m. Call (425) 488-4444 or www.homewardpet.org.

Pet of the Week - May 16, 2011

P0WBob2_2Bob is thrilled to be the featured pet this week, because he needs a little help spreading the word. This handsome boy needs to find a home and he’s ready to go!

Bob’s story as we know it begins in the Yakima Valley as a stray. Somehow, he became separated from his former home and was never claimed. Soon, he made his way to Homeward Pet where he currently resides. He has an outgoing personality that he uses to his advantage, in hopes of winning someone over.

Sitting on his doggy cot in unique fashion, he keeps a keen eye on the door. When visitors approach, he’ll scamper to the front of his kennel and perform his trademark 360 degree twirl. Who can resist that?

Two-year-old Bob came to us with an old leg injury. Although healed, it causes him to walk with a different gait. Surgical repair isn’t an option, and that’s just fine with him. He uses his leg as he needs it and without pain. We think this is the reason he keeps getting passed over, but he wants everyone to know that he is just as able as any other dog. He’s happy to demonstrate it, too.

We call Bob "King of the Little Dogs." He surely believes he is, and although he is only 16 pounds, he has the mentality of a much larger dog. He wants to be out and about, socializing and exploring to his heart’s content.

The lap dog lifestyle isn’t for him, although he would really appreciate a cozy spot, right next to his favorite person at day’s end.

Bob is good with other dogs and will chase cats for fun. He has no malice for them, but rather sees the felines as an opportunity to stir up some entertainment. He is not accustomed to young children and would feel most comfortable with children who are over the age of 10 years old.

Bob has plenty of energy for long walks and other outdoor pursuits. He’s the type of dog who enjoys meeting new people and learning new tricks. He really is a fantastic dog who needs a second chance in life. All he needs is to meet the right person. Is it you?

With as many as 50 dogs and cats available at any given time and over 1,000 animals adopted out annually, Homeward Pet Adoption Center is one of the largest no-kill nonprofit companion animal shelters in the state.  All of the animals receive full medical and behavioral evaluations and our adoption staff is adept at working with people to ensure their new family member’s successful transition into a permanent, loving home.
