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!

Dolphin (waiting since July 14th)
12 years, 2 months young, Neutered Male

Hi, I'm the Dolphin!  I'm a super-sweet, friendly guy.  You'll see when you come to visit that I will come right up to you, purring.  I absolutely love it when you pet me.  And my most favorite place to be is to be around you.  If you're looking for a laid back, gentle fellow, come by and say hello.  As you can see, I'm looking high and low for you... and hey, if we "flip" for each other we don't have to spend another day apart as I'm already neutered and can go home with you today.  I can't wait to meet you! 

Bellini (waiting since July 5th)
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!

Gizmo and Sweety Pie (waiting since March 12)
4 years, 5 months old, Cockatiel

Hi we're Gizmo and Sweety Pie and we were surrendered with 5 other birds because our guardian was moving somewhere where birds are not allowed.  Gizmo is an affectionate bird that is hand tame and enjoys spending time out of his cage.  Gizmo will happily groom you and is learning to whistle.  Gizmo's favorite musicians are Dean Martin and Louie Prima, and he will dance when you put the music on.  Gizmo loves the company of humans and birds alike which is why he is looking to go home with his gray and white bird friend Sweety Pie.

Dudley (waiting since July 17th)
1 year, 8 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Neutered Male

Why hello there, I'm Dudley.  I'm an energetic guy with the cutest face you've ever seen, no?  And those silly, I mean awesome, ears. I came to the MSPCA because my previous owner was homeless, so I'm now looking for my new family to pal around with. I'm a very friendly dog, and I am eager to get any attention. Because I'm so over-the-top friendly I like to jump up on anyone and everyone, which is why they require that we attend a positive reinforment training class to help polish my manners. It'll be a great bonding experience for us both!  I've been friendly with all of the dogs here at the shelter so we think I could probably live with another dog, as long as we meet and get along. I do have a few medical concerns, so if you're interested in learning more about me, come on in and speak with a staff member.  Then we can meet and we'll see if I'm the loving goofball you've been looking for!

Jumper (waiting since August 19th)
14 years, 1 month old, Spayed Female

Hi, my name is Jumper! I am an affectionate orange and white tabby who loves to be petted. I am a gentle soul, and I look forward to curling up with my new family and keeping them company. I know that when I get to my new home, I will open up even more and let my personality jump out.  Until then I'm lounging here waiting for you to come by and give me a pet or two, or three, or... well you get the picture, I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Algernon and Janie (waiting since October 17th)
1 year, 1 month old, white mice

Hello there, we're Algernon and Janie and are sparkling white mice! We've come to the MSPCA because our previous owner had too many of us.  So we are now searching high and low for our new homes.  Mice are very gentle and fragile animals who love to climb on people’s arms & shoulders. We're also very curious and can be a great choice for an individual or family looking for a small mammal.  The MSPCA has the "Mini-Mouse" handout that can give you even more details about what to expect when having a M-O-U-S-E!!!  We hope you'll stop by soon so we can play hide and seek and see if you'd like to sing the Mickey Mouse song together and be our new forever H-O-M-E home!
