We Have Been Waiting

While many animals are adopted quickly, we often times have wonderful cats, dogs, and small animals who wait in the adoption center for weeks, sometimes months, hoping to find someone to take them home. Each day they wait, passed over for the cute kitten in the cage next to them or the dog that knows more tricks than they were taught.  Our hearts break for these animals - they have so much to offer but get passed over each day for someone else. Perhaps you are the person they have been waiting so long for? Please come in to the adoption center today and meet the animals below who have been waiting the longest at the adoption, waiting for someone with a big heart like you!

Neely (waiting since May 3rd)
2 years, 2 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Neutered Male

Woof! I'm Neely, the sweetest pup around. I was transferred to the MSPCA from another facility that wanted help finding me the perfect home and I just celebrated my second birthday!  And although everyone here was great to celebrate with, I'm hoping to find my forever family to share all of life's other milestones with.  I don't need anything fancy, just a nice home (or apartment) and family (or person) willing to give me the love and attention I need and deserve. I do well with some dogs but not others so if you have a dog at home that could be my doggy brother or sister, I should meet them before going home. I'm a shy boy and would prefer a zen household without any young kids as I get nervous easily. I can't wait to attend positive reinforcement training with my new family to help boost my confidence.  Come meet me today!

Skyler (waiting since August 11th)
5 years, 5 months old, Spayed Female

Hello there, I'm Skyler and I am a sweet and petite gal with a heart of gold. It's true, I am a bit shy, but if you spend some time with me, you will find that I am an affectionate girl. I will purr away happily when I get a good head scratch. If you are looking for a quiet, loyal companion, it's your lucky day! I can't wait to go home with a loving person or family… Please stop by so that we can get to know one another; and if we are the match made in heaven it'll be blue skies all around as I can go home with you right away since I'm already spayed!

Tesla (waiting since October 21st)
White short haired rabbit, Neutered Male

Hi!  I am Tesla, a sweet rabbit looking for a new home.  I am not yet litterbox trained, so I can be a little messy.  And I am also easily excited and can be jumpy and/or curious towards new visitors.  So I think I will do best in a home with rabbit-experienced people.  I am not that picky about my housing.  An X-pen would be fine as long as I also get exploring time.  I hope you'll hop on over to the MSPCA so we may get a little one on one time soon!  Another great thing is that I am already neutered so I could go home with you today.

Tweeter and BB (waiting since October 15th)
4 years, 3 months old, Parakeets

We are Tweeter and BB, two parakeets looking for a great home.  I'm BB the gorgeous Blue parakeet and my buddy Tweeter is green and yellow.  We have lived together our entire lives and would love to keep it that way.  We really like millet, baths and our mirror, and you cannot blame us, no?  With looks like these you just have to use the mirror to check out the gorgeousness.  As a species, us Parakeets are known to be very intelligent, and Tweeter and I won't let you down!  I do hope you will come by and meet us so we can chat and decide if we are birds of a feather that need to all be together!!

Molly (waiting since November 21st)
4 years, 2 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Spayed Female

Good golly, (Miss) Molly, sure likes the (tennis) balls!  My name is Molly, I am a spayed 82lbs Pit Bull mix, and I'm a sweet, playful girl with a beautiful black mask, soulful brown eyes and soft floppy ears!  Sadly my owner passed away, and I'm here looking to start over with my new forever family.  I absolutely love playing with balls especially those delightfully chewy tennis balls.  Squeaky toys are mighty fine in my book, as well.  I'm very social and would be ecstatically happy to receive scratches and hugs from you.  Because I'm such a beautiful and statuesque girl, sturdy kids with big dog experience would probably be best for me - I might knock over smaller children accidentally.  I have met dogs here at the shelter and was not very interested.   I have more than enough doggy love to share with you, so I think I would be delighted to be your one and only doggy!  I sit very prettily so I already have some of that learning stuff behind me.  While I don't need to go to training class, I think it would be fun to spend time with you while learning some extra special tricks (for treats maybe?  I like those!)  Good golly, what are you waiting for?  Come over and meet me today!

Turnip (waiting since December 16th)
2 years, 1 month old, Intact Male

Hello, hello! I am a handsome boy who is friendly and likes to be petted. I really like a good head scratch. I don't need fancy toys to play with: my favorite toys are string and paper bags and as you can see I love myself a good cardboard box! I have lived with four kids before, and we had fun together. I also lived with another cat, and we got along great so I know I can make myself at home with just about anyone, anyone who loves to give me attention, that is. I am so excited to find a new forever home…maybe yours?  Looking forward to meeting you, please plan to come and visit soon!

Thandi, Trick, and Nemo (waiting since October 24th)
4 months old, Intact Females and Male

Hello, hello, hello! We are some wonderful tan hamsters that came to the MSPCA when we were wee little ones and are looking to now find our forever homes.  Hamsters, if you were not aware, are nocturnal animals, which means we do a bunch of sleeping during the day and are more active at night.  We need daily exercise so having an exercise wheel is important and also love supervised time in a plastic ball where we can explore around.  We like to build nests in our homes with soft napkins or tissues, cotton balls, and of course, hay to make them cozy.  We're looking forward to having you visit to see if we may be the right match for you.
