Pet of the Week - May 9, 2011

Mason_and_Dixon_POWThese two fine-looking brothers stop people in their tracks when they see them.

They are quite handsome and they definitely know it! Not that they are conceited — just self-confident.

Mason is a lighter orange buff color; his 4-year-old brother Dixon is bright orange and white.

They came to us because they came from a neglectful home and deserve so much better.

Getting a pair of cats who already know and like each other is a great way to go. While you’re away at work, they will have each other to play with. They will groom each other and keep each other warm.

When you get home you will have twice as much fun kitty time.

Come on in and meet the boys and hold onto your heart because they will be ready to steal it!

With as many as 50 dogs and cats available at any given time and over 1,300 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.

If you are not ready to adopt but would like to help care for our homeless animals by volunteering, go to www.homewardpet.org/volunteer.

Homeward is located in the north side of the Clearwater Spa Building at 18800 Woodinville-Snohomish Road.

Adoption hours are Wednesday through Friday from 2-7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 12-6 p.m.

Pet of the Week - May 2, 2011

Tessi_1Meet Tessi! She’s a special dog who’s looking for a special owner. Our 10- month-old darling came to Homeward with two of her siblings after they were found abandoned in the Yakima Valley area. Upon arrival, it was clear that Tessi needed socialization and attention that she had previously been deprived of. She has spent most of her youth in a loving foster home being spoiled and learning about all the great things this world has to offer a dog. Although sometimes timid, Tessi has made great progress when it comes to meeting new people and being introduced to new situations.

Tessi is learning to enjoy new things every day, such as car rides, daily walks and romping in the yard with her dog friends. She is accustomed to having a fenced yard and will require one in her new home. This will allow her to get out and really stretch her legs on a regular basis. She’s not ready for dog parks yet but could be a future candidate with the right training and socialization. Tessi needs someone who is dedicated to putting in work in this area so she can reach her full potential.

Although still growing, she is approaching her adult size. She’ll be a medium sized girl, weighing in the neighborhood of 55 pounds.

Being a border collie mix, she exhibits some classic traits. She’s super sweet, inquisitive and eager to please. Tessi is also a very clever dog who learns fast and follows direction well. She needs to slowly acclimate to children, so it’s best that she finds a home with older kids and adults at this time. She is feline friendly and would really enjoy sharing a home with a confident dog who can serve as a mentor. Tessi is a loving and happy dog who has made great strides, but she needs to find her forever person soon. She’s longs for the day she can call someone her very own, for all time. Won’t you consider making her your next dog?

Although Tessi currently resides in a foster home, meet and greets can be arranged for qualified applicants upon request. Please visit our website www.homewardpet.org to access an adoption application and to learn more about our adoption process.
