Pet of the Week - Nov. 7, 2011

  • Written by Homeward Pet Adoption
GarboPOWWe have found that often the cats who behave worst in the shelter are the best behaved cats in homes.

There was a cat named Lucky who was at Homeward Pet for months.

Because she didn’t care for other cats, she was very unhappy in the shelter environment.

She was always on her guard and being surrounded by felines made her edgy and often grumpy.Once adopted into an “only cat” household, her new parents described Lucky as “the best cat in the world.”

We see Garbo as a Lucky kind of cat. She is spirited, playful and very entertaining.

However, when she sees another cat in the shelter she becomes annoyed.

It can be difficult to convince potential adopters that outside of the shelter, Garbo had been a wonderful family cat. Her previous owners described her as kid-friendly, easy-going, mild-mannered and low-maintenance.

They did allow her to go outside so perhaps an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, although risky in the Northwest, would probably be best suited for her, though we do hope that her new owner will initially try to keep her as an indoor-only kitty.

Garbo is a 3-year-old short-haired tabby with the cutest face. We hope that someone will come in and look beyond her “shelter attitude”  and give her a chance so she can be the queen of her castle!

Come meet Garbo at Homeward Pet Adoption Center. We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.

Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

Laura POWAre you in the market for an active and loving medium sized dog? Meet Laura! Somehow this sweet girl found herself lost and wandering on an Eastern Washington highway. Fortunately, a kind hearted rescuer spotted her and picked her up.  Now safe and sound at Homeward Pet, this two-year-old darling is on the lookout for her new family. Laura weighs 51 pounds, so she’s just right for someone who is looking for a lab type dog that isn’t too big. She is compatible with other animals and absolutely adores all people.

Laura will need time to slowly acclimate to her new home, and she’s seeking an owner who can be home often for her so she can work on feeling secure when the time comes to be alone. She loves her humans so much that the thought of them leaving is very stressful for her.

Laura loves to please, so she will be a natural for the training classes that are included with her adoption. She’s looking to brush up on her manners and she’s ready to impress. Laura may also need a refresher on house training, but once she’s given a chance to learn the routine, she’ll have it down pat.

Laura loves exploring the outdoors, so she would like a fenced yard with her new home. She would make a fine hiking or running companion. She’s ready to find her forever person, and all she needs is a second chance. Her friends at Homeward Pet are standing by ready to introduce her so she has the chance to demonstrate what a special dog she is.

Homeward Pet is now located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville, www.homewardpet.org.

FarinaPOW

Farina

You would never know that this beauty was a recent mommy cat. Farina now has her “pre-baby” shape back and is here at Homeward Pet Adoption Center, ready for all of the world to admire her.

She was a great mom to five handsome orange sons and now this pretty orange tabby teenager is ready for some fun and excitement of her own.

Since most orange cats are males, she is rather unique in appearance.

Her foster family was crazy about her and said she would be a great companion in almost any household. This playful one year old is a catch!

Like all animals from Homeward Pet, Farina has been spayed.

If you have a pet at home that isn’t, help control the number of unwanted kittens and puppies that are born by spaying or neutering your cat or dog.

Homeward Pet offers low-cost spay/neuter surgeries every Wednesday.  Call (425) 488-4444, ext. 410 to make an appointment.

Come meet Farina at Homeward Pet’s new shelter.

We’re now located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.

Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

Wayne POWWayne is a great older gentleman who wishes for a family to call his own. He’s 10 years young and weighs 56 pounds. Wayne is very sweet and responsive to his people.

Wayne has nice house manners, settles in quickly to his new surrounds and enjoys daily walks, rides in the car and just about anything with his special person. Wayne is ready to be a steady sidekick and explore all of the wonderful things this world has to offer.

Wayne gets along very well with polite dogs, but he should have a cat-free home. He would be best suited for respectful kids over the age of six. If you are looking for a mellow and faithful companion, please consider Wayne. He’s a good boy, and all he needs is a chance to show you he’s the one!

Come meet Wayne at Homeward Pet’s new shelter!  We’re now located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.  Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.

Jasper POWJasper was adopted from Homeward Pet as a kitten, along with his sister, but now that he is an adult he has decided he doesn’t like his sister so much. Jasper is just a year old and once he is comfortable in his surroundings, he is a total lover boy who loves to cuddle.

This shiny black cat likes to sit on laps and when he isn’t looking for attention, he is playing with the laser light toy or chasing a ball around. Jasper would be happiest if he were the only cat in the household so he doesn’t have to share the attention. He really is a sweetie, come in and see for yourself.

Come meet Jasper at Homeward Pet’s new shelter!  We’re closed through Friday, September 30, for the move, but will open in our new location at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville, starting October 1.

Please call (just to be sure)  (425) 488-4444.

Our shelter is open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m, Wednesday through Sunday.  See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.
