Pet of the Week - Nov. 21, 2011

  • Written by Homeward Pet Adoption
POWKittensSummertime is usually the season when we have lots and lots of kittens for adoption at Homeward Pet, but this year our “crop” of kittens is still being “harvested!” Most of our kittens have been in foster care until they are big enough to come back into the shelter to be altered and then made available for adoption.

Our foster volunteers provide an invaluable service by giving these kittens a chance to be socialized and cared for in a home environment. This also allows us to get a sense of the kittens’ personalities so we can find the right match in a forever home. Here at Homeward Pet we spend time with our potential adopters to help them find the right felines for their lifestyle.

We always recommend adopting a pair so the kittens learn important social skills from each other and also keep each other amused (especially important at about 3 o’clock in the morning)!

If you are contemplating adding a kitten or two into your family, come on in and meet these little cuties and talk with our adoption counselors. If you decide a kitten is just too much energy for your household, we always have mellow adults just waiting for a comfy lap!

Come meet all the felines at Homeward Pet Adoption Center! We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.

Our shelter is open for visitors between 12 noon and 6 p.m, Wednesday through Sunday.

TonyPOWTony is a cute little fellow who was rescued in the nick of time from an overcrowded California shelter.

After making the trip northward, he’s settled in nicely at Homeward Pet and is now looking to find his forever family.

Tony is just 3 years old and weighs 11 pounds.

He’ll be perfect for someone looking for a small companion who has many years of love to offer.

He’s quite personable and has a spunky personality.

Tony hasn’t been around cats before, but he is compatible with other dogs.

One of his favorite activities is playing with his dog buddies here at the shelter, but he’d really like to romp around in the comfort of his own home!

Tony enjoys going for walks and being a lap warmer for his special person. He would prefer a home with adults and children over the age of 14.

If you’re looking for a great little buddy, please stop by Homeward Pet and visit Tony.

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.

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.
