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!

Tramp (waiting since May 24th)
5 years, 2 months old, Laborador Retriever Mix, Neutered Male

Hi, I'm Tramp! Are you looking for a big exuberant lad who just loves to be with people?  Here I am!  I'm a 5 year old Lab, and I really am a big boy, I weigh about 110 pounds right now!  I came here with my girlfriend Lady because our former guardian was no longer able to care for us.  As you've probably guessed, I'm an active boy with an outgoing personality who loves to play with people and balls and toys, if you throw it I'll fetch it.  I'm hoping to go home with a family that has big dog experience - I'm a smart boy with good intentions, but I'm just so happy that sometimes it's hard to contain myself from jumping up to kiss your face or jumping in your lap!  I play very nicely though, and I already know basic manners like sit, lie down and stay.  Living with bigger kids who could handle an affectionate boy who doesn't know his own size would also be great.  I adored my Lady but I don't have experience with a lot of other dogs, so if you already have a dog at home, please ask the staff to introduce us to see if we would make really good friends.  Want to get to know me?  Then let's go out and play!!

Moonlight (waiting since March 22nd)
11 months old, Spayed Female

I'm Moonlight, but my friends like to call me Moonie.  At 11 months of age, I'm still the most playfulest kitten around: play hard and sleep hard is my motto!   I am in absolute awe of the world around me and believe everything in it is my toy!  So you'll have to not let my cuteness fool you, my curiosity can get me into trouble if you let me.  I'm looking for a special home as I have some digestion issues which sometimes makes it hurt when I go to the bathroom. I've had two vets who have done everything to try to figure out what's wrong--but alas we still don't know.  Currently I'm on a hypoallergenic food and an oral twice a day medication to try to help my tummy, and I may need to be on these for the rest of my life. But my glowing personality makes up for my occasional stomach woes, they say you can't meet me and not fall in love! To find out more about me please email adoption@mspca.org.

Chantilly and Snowflake (waiting since March 27th)
5 years, 3 months old and 4 years, 3 months old, respectively, Lionhead Rabbits, Spayed Females

Hi, I'm Chantilly and law enforcement brought me and my daughter, Snowflake, here to the MSPCA to find new forever homes.  Although we came together, we have since decided that we would like to be the only rabbits of the household as we tend to get a little possessive of our space.  So we are hoping to find an experienced rabbit owner wanting to engage with us and our spunky nature.  We are litterbox trained and love enrichment toys to keep us busy.  Come visit us and let's see if we are a perfect match!

Hoagie (waiting since May 25th)
8 years old, Pit Bull Terrier Mix, Spayed Female

Hello there! I'm Hoagie, a sweet-as-can-be spayed female 59lbs Pit Bull Terrier Mix.  I'm here at the MSPCA because someone found me tied up in a parking lot and brought me here. It was tough being left there, but I'm glad I ended up safe and sound here at the adoption center. I'm fortunate to be getting lots of love from the staff and volunteers here, but I sure am looking forward to finding my forever home! I'm an affectionate, mellow gal who loves being around people. I have such a sweet personality and adorable wiggle that I always bring a smile to people's faces. I enjoy getting outside for fresh air and then hanging out with people inside. In fact, I think I'd make the perfect TV/movie-watching companion - I don't make a lot of noise and I love snuggling. So, a little more about the right home for me…the staff here say I'd be fine to go to a family with kids (I'm calm and affectionate - a great combo!). Do you have other furry friends already? While I probably shouldn't go to a home with cats, I may be able to go to a home with another dog as long as we meet first and get along. Are you looking for a sweet, calm, adorable gal who'll bring joy to every day? Well, I just might be the perfect match for you! Come on over and meet me today! 

Flora (waiting since April 12th)
8 years, 2 months old, Spayed Female

Hi, there, I'm Flora.  I came to the MSPCA because a kind stranger found me and brought me here so I could find my perfect family.  As you can see from my photos I'm a sweet lady looking for my new home.  I can be a little bit shy at first, but once I get to know you you'll see I'm ready to receive all of your loving and give you mine in return.  I cannot wait to finally get settled in so I can relax and let my awesome personality shine through! And best of all, we won't have to wait at all once we know we are made for each other as I'm already spayed so I can come home with you tonight.  I'll be here waiting and watching for you to come and visit.

Phoebe and Rachel (waiting since April 5th)
1 year, 2 months old, Parakeets, Females

Hi I'm Phoebe a beautiful yellow parakeet.  And don't forget about me, I'm Rachel!  We came to the MSPCA together and are now looking for a great new homes.  As you might know, parakeets need to be in pairs so we would be happy to go home together or at least to a home with another parakeet so we have a buddy.  We both have different coloring: Rachel is this gorgeous blue and white while I'm this bright yellow - so we are sure to bring lot of color to your life.  As a species, us parakeets are known to be very intelligent, and I know that we won't let the perception down!  We will need toys to keep us busy and I can tell you how much I love to climb around and explore.  We do hope you will come by and meet us and our other buddies so we can decide if we are your birds of a feather who should definitely be together!!  Come in and meet us today!
