Pet of the Week - Dec. 5, 2011

  • Written by Homeward Pet Adoption

Otto POWOtto is such a cool cat and all of us at Homeward Pet think he knows it. Is he conceited?  Well not really, but overly self confident, most definitely! Just a gaze in the mirror would let Otto know that he is one handsome dude.

This 3 year old has a little bit of that Siamese attitude which just adds to his suaveness. Otto loves to play with toys and can wear himself out playing with feather toys or chasing a ball. When this blue eyed beauty  is in the mood, he will curl up in your lap and “allow” you to pet him. His previous owners, who moved out of the country, had no children or other pets so we’re thinking being the only pet, the “King of the Castle,” might suit this fun-lovin’ guy just fine.

Come to Homeward Pet to meet Otto!  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.

POWRudyRudy is an outgoing and personable dog who was rescued from an overcrowded California shelter. Desperately needing another option, he and a bunch of others managed to hop a transport headed north.

Eventually, little Rudy found himself among new friends at Homeward Pet.  Thankful to be safe and sound, he’s now on the lookout for his new home. When he’s not keeping a close eye on the adoption room door, he loves to snuggle up in his blankets so he’s secure and warm. He’d just prefer to find a person to snuggle with!

Rudy can be a bit shy at first, but it certainly doesn’t last long. His spunky personality quickly becomes apparent as his playful side emerges. Rudy loves attention whether it’s from people or other dogs. He’s made multiple canine buddies during his stay here, and really looks forward to social time. Although he hasn’t met cats before, he would have no problem sharing a house with another dog, especially if his new housemate is similar in size.

Come to Homeward Pet to meet Rudy!  We’re located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville.  Our shelter is open for visitors between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. See all our adoptable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies at www.homewardpet.org.

This holiday season, you can help Homeward Pet help animals and families in need in our community.

Beginning Friday November 25th, drop off a dog or cat food donation at select Pet Pros locations, or bring your donation to Homeward Pet between 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.  See www.homewardpet.org for more information.

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.

If you’re not ready to add a pet to your family, you can still help homeless animals like Tony by making a donation to Homeward Pet.  Visit www.homewardpet.org/donate for more information.

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.
