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!

Brownie (waiting since February 4th)
9 years, 1 month old, Pit Bull Mix, Spayed Female

Good day! My name's Brownie, I'm a super sweet 8-year-old Pit Bull who came to the shelter because my owner had fallen on hard times and could no longer afford my care. My idea of the perfect day involves a couple leisurely walks and lots of time cuddled up on the couch with you. I'm an older gal so I'm definitely looking for a quieter home with lots of comfortable places to claim as my bed. If you're home more often than not I would absolutely love that because I'm such a social girl but if you work regular hours I'll just nap all day and cuddle with you all night. I'm such a sweetheart that I could get along with kids of most ages. I would prefer not to live with any cats or small animals but if you already have a dog companion at home please let us meet to see if we'll be a good match. Do you have a spare couch, or two? Then come visit me today! Thanks to a donation from a generous volunteer my adoption fee has been sponsored - instead of a $250 adoption fee my adoption fee has been reduced to $50.

Rosemary (waiting since May 20th)
3 years, 2 months old, Spayed Female

I'm Rosemary, nice to meet you! I'm a pretty tortie girl who was left in the lobby of the adoption center, so my past is something of a mystery…I'm a little bit shy here at the shelter, so go slowly with me, but I do like to be petted, if you're gentle. I'd probably do best in a relatively calm house without rowdy kids or dogs; I'd love to find a new home where I can feel safe enough to let my "tortitude" come out!  The great news is that I am already spayed so I can go home with you today.  Looking forward to meeting 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.  Come and see me and my bunny buddies here at the MSPCA so we can get to know each other!

Gizmo and Sweety Pie (waiting since March 12)
4 years, 3 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.

Neely (waiting since May 3rd)
1 year, 8 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!

Vera Ellen (waiting since May 20th)
3 years, 2 months old, Spayed Female

Hello there, I'm Vera Ellen! I'm a young lady with a mysterious past; I was dropped off in the lobby of the adoption center, and the humans here don't know all that much about my previous life before the MSPCA. As you can see from my photo I'm ready to get up close and have some one-on-one time with you so you can see how gorgeous I am in person.  I'm a sweet gal though a little bit shy.  I've gotten along well with other cats here, and I can't wait to find a forever home where I can relax and let my personality shine though!  And an added bonus is that I'm already spayed so I can go home with you right away!  Looking forward to getting to know you soon.

Mice (waiting since October 17th)
10 months old

Hello there! We've come to the MSPCA because our previous owner had too many of us.  So we are now searching for new homes.  The MSPCA has the "Mini-Mouse" handout that can give you lots of details about what to expect having a M-O-U-S-E!!!  We're 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.  We hope you'll stop by soon and 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!
