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, 11 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!

Kitty (waiting since August 25th)
4 years, 2 months 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!

May (waiting since September 16th)
1 year, 1 month, English Spot/Rhinelander, Spayed Female

Hello there!  My name is May, and I am an enthusiastic and playful girl who will hop right into your heart.  I love exploring out of my pen so I will need plenty of out of cage time in my new home.  Pat my head and I'll gladly lie down and receive more.  I am litterbox trained and already spayed so I am ready and willing to go home with you today!  I am not that picky about my housing.  An X-pen would be fine as long as I also get exploring time, or I could be a house bunny and have free reign of your place.  I hope you'll hop on over to the MSPCA so we may get a little one on one time soon!

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!

Cheyenne (waiting since July 30th)
1 year, 3 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Intact Female

Hi, my name is Cheyenne, and I am a big bundle of energy! I am a very sweet girl, looking for a home where I'll be able to get lots of exercise and positive reinforcement training. I've already learned some of the basics like sit and down, but I'm looking forward to learning more manners and some new tricks! Because of my high energy level, I would do best in a home with older children, who can handle my enthusiasm. If you have a dog at home who could be my friend, let the shelter staff know so that we can meet each other. I would do best in a home with a younger, tolerant dog who could handle my silly antics.  If you're looking for a fun-loving, goofy girl, I may be the one for you, so come on in and meet me today!

Mama (waiting since August 26th)
8 years, 2 months old, Spayed Female

Hello, I'm Mama! I'm a sweet, friendly gal who loves attention.  I will start purring the moment that you pet me!  And if your face is close to mine I will nuzzle and rub against you. I am a mellow cat who would love to spend the day by your side or I'll happily watch the world pass by from a windowsill.  If you are looking for a calm and friendly kitty, I hope you will come by and meet me.  We may just hit it off and be an inseparable pair!
