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)
1 year, 10 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. 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!

Heezey (waiting since July 30th)
8 years, 3 months old, Neutered Male

Hello, I'm Heezey! I'm a gentle, friendly guy who can't wait to meet you! I'm a little shy when I first meet new people so please give me a chance to get to know you - but I'm very excited to be welcomed into my forever home where I can relax, get comfortable and show off my awesome personality!  We don't know much about my history before being here at the MSPCA, but the staff here think I may not do well with kids as I can be a bit shy. I'm already neutered so I can go home today and we can start our happily ever after right away.  Won't you please stop by so we can get to know each other better?

Bellini (waiting since July 5th)
4 years, New Zealand white

Hello there!  My name is Bellini because I have such a sparkling personality!  As you can see, I'm at the ready and looking for a home where I will get lots and lots of attention.  My perfect home would be with a rabbit experienced person, and I should be in a home without children.  I have a big attitude, but I am very smart.  I am not picky about my housing; I just need a large enough space for me!  An X-pen would be best, or I could be a house bunny and have free reign of your place.  I've been hanging here at MSPCA for awhile so a lovely foster family has taken me in for the time being, but I'm hoping to still find my forever home soon and I would love for you to schedule a time that we can hop on over to the shelter so we can get to know each other!

Dharma and Sangha (waiting since March 27th)
3 years, 6 months old, Parakeet

Hi!  I'm Dharma, and I live here with my buddy Sangha.  We are beautiful green and yellow parakeets.  Our owner's son became allergic and could not keep us so we are here at the MSPCA searching for our new home.  Parakeets are very intelligent, so we need toys to keep us busy and we love to climb around and explore.  Come by and meet us today!

Izzy (waiting since July 17th)
6 years, 2 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Spayed Female

Oh, hi!  My name is Izzy!  I'm a sweet, shy girl with the cutest little wrinkly face and a coat as soft as velvet!  My owner was moving and couldn't take me along, so here I am, looking for a loving new home.  My favorite thing is being petted - I could lean in and enjoy gentle stroking for hours!  I am a staff and volunteer favorite and you might find me lounging in a big comfy bed in the lobby, enjoying some attention from all of my friends (look hard though, I'm really little!).    I would be happy as a clam as your one-and-only, but would also be happy in a home with calm children as long as there is plenty of petting involved - did I mention I love to be snuggled? - or with another dog if we meet first and like each other.  I might even be able to go to a home with a kitty, so check with the staff if you have a cat at home.  Everyone here tells me I have very nice manners, and I walk well on a leash and already know sit, paw, down and come.  I'll be having knee surgery very soon. If you are interested in learning more about me, come in and speak to a staff member and visit me, I'll wiggle my way into your heart!  Don't forget to bring lots of kisses and hugs - you won't believe how silky my fur is!

Kitty (waiting since August 25th)
4 years, 1 month old, Spayed Female

Hi!  I'm Kitty.  I'm here waiting, watching and looking out for you to visit.  I came here because my owner's mother is moving in, and she's allergic to me.  I'm a sweet girl who loves getting your attention.  However, I do occasionally get overstimulated when you pet me, so do pay attention!  During the day I'm content being an independent sort, but at night I'd love to sleep in bed with you.  I lived with a golden retriever before, and we were great friends.  I'm looking forward to finding my new home, and meeting some new friends, be they furry or human!  I'm already spayed so we can fall in love and be together right away.  Please stop by so we can play!

Estraya (waiting since August 26th)
1 year, 1 month old, Ferret, Spayed Female

Hi!  I'm Estrella, an outgoing and friendly ferret.  I have been the life of the party here at the MSPCA, joining in on birthday parties and I was the first ever small animal spokesferret for the Walk For Animals.  I was a huge hit, but I haven't let my stardom go to my head!  I am very curious and love new experiences.  Some say I'm part Houdini as I've been known to try to slip out of my harness in search of new adventures, but I also love to cuddle in and be close to you.  I am not picky about my housing - a basic ferret cage is fine for me, as long as I have enough room to move around.  I'm also already spayed so we can walk out of here and off into the wild blue yonder together!
