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)
2 years, 1 month 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 and I just celebrated my second birthday!  And although everyone here was great to celebrate with, I'm hoping to find my forever family to share all of life's other milestones with.  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!

Kuszkusz (waiting since September 9th)
13 years, 9 months old, Neutered Male

Hello there, I'm Kuszkusz (that's how you spell "couscous" in Hungarian, in case you were wondering). I'm a lovely, calm older gentleman who's looking to live out my retirement years in a nice safe home. I came to the shelter because the neighbor's dog attacked me in my previous home, and my owner couldn't afford the medical care I needed. I'm all better now though (if a bit gun-shy) and I need a new human to take care of me!  I'm already neutered so after we meet here at the shelter, we can leave together.  Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Tesla (waiting since October 21st)
White short haired rabbit, Neutered Male

Hi!  I am Tesla, a sweet rabbit looking for a new home.  I am not yet litterbox trained, so I can be a little messy.  And I am also easily excited and can be jumpy and/or curious towards new visitors.  So I think I will do best in a home with rabbit-experienced people.  I am not that picky about my housing.  An X-pen would be fine as long as I also get exploring time.  I hope you'll hop on over to the MSPCA so we may get a little one on one time soon!  Another great thing is that I am already neutered so I could go home with you today.

Scrappy (waiting since November 4th)
7 years, 1 month old, Labrador Retriever Mix, Neutered Male

Hi there! My name is Scrappy, and I am just as sweet as can be! I am a 7 year old neutered Lab mix who weights about 54 lbs. I'm here at the MSPCA because, unfortunately, my former guardians lost their home and couldn't keep me with them. I'm a bit of a shy guy at first, but it doesn't take me long to come out of my shell.  Just ask one of my many admirers here at the MSPCA - when they take me outside, I'm much more confiden,t and I love all the attention they give me! I really enjoy going for walks. It shows in my spirited pace and wagging tail! When I'm inside, I'm calm and love to cuddle. Did I mention I am quite the gentleman with great manners? I know "sit" and I look even more adorable when I give "paw." I lived with other dogs and cats in my previous home and could probably live with them again as long as they are mellow like me. Because I can be a bit nervous, if I live with kids they should be older, calm and appropriate with me, no kids that might corner me to try to hug me! If you like to spend time taking in the sights and sounds outdoors, but also watching TV on the couch, I could be your perfect companion! Come meet me today!

Cinder (waiting since October 7th)
5 years, 2 months old, Spayed Female

Hi, I'm Sam!  I came here because my previous owner's grandchild was allergic to me.  So I am here now trying to find a loving home! I really like lounging in my comfy house, but please do say hello. I am a quiet girl, but if you spend some time with me, my sweet personality will shine. I adore head scratches and will start to purr to show my gratitude. I am so eager to find a new forever home…maybe yours? And one of the best parts is that I'm already spayed so after we meet here at the shelter, we can leave together right away!  Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Leonardis (waiting since September 23rd)
4 years, 3 months old, Ferret, Neutered Male

Hi!  I'm Leonardis, a playful and curious guy.  I like to spend time outside my cage and will make a great companion.  Us ferrets, we are social animals and like to play wrestle, hide-and-seek, a good game of chase or just burrowing in carboard boxes, blankets and yup, shoes!!  When excited we will performe the weasel war dance, a frenzied series of sideways hops often accompanied by soft chuckling noises.  So fun, no?  We're also crepuscular which means that we are most active during dawn and dusk.  Come meet me today!  I can't wait for you to stop by so we can play together.
