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!

Jada (waiting since March 18th)
7 years, 2 months old, Pit Bull Mix, Spayed Female

My name is Jada, and people tell me I'm a gem!  I'm 7 years old, 53lbs, friendly, affectionate, snuggly, and polite, and I have an adorable habit of carrying around a stuffed toy (whichever one strikes my fancy that day).  My ideal home would be with someone who would give me plenty of love and exercise, because I am a sweet, smart, energetic dog with loads of enthusiasm!  I like relaxing, too, preferably in the company of someone special.  Previously, I lived with four children, other dogs, and a cat, and I got along with everyone.  We all had to leave that home, but that just means I'm available to bring joy to another home with new people and maybe other animals - if you don't already have another dog at home, my friend Radish and I make a perfect pair!  All of the staff and volunteers love me, but as soon as the right family finds me, I will thank the folks here for taking care of me and start my new life!  To learn more about me, please ask an Adoption Counselor at the front desk.

Tiny (waiting since April 5th)
7 years 7 months old, Spayed Female

Hi there! My name is Tiny and do I have a story to tell. The day after I was surrendered to the MSPCA because my original owner had to move, I gave birth to a litter of kittens. Since then I have been in the care of a foster home. Originally I was all hormones: very hissy and growly, but slowly I learned to trust my foster parents and now I am a social butterfly! I love to play play play! I still get nervous when new people come over, but I do warm up after some quiet petting time if the visitor is willing. I would do best in a quiet household where I could adjust more quickly to having a few main caregivers. Please stop by so we can meet each other and see if we would make a purrfect match, and since I'm already spayed we'll be able to go home together right away.

Chantilly and Snowflake (waiting since March 27th)
5 years, 2 months old (Chantilly) and 4 years, 2 months old (Snowflake), Lionhead rabbits, Spayed Females

Hi! We're Chantilly (on right) and Snowflake - a mother and daughter pair.  We love each other very much and need to be adopted together! And with such love we believe we should be the only rabbits in the household. But with us you'll have two buns - which is way better than one, no?  Another bonus is that we are already spayed so we can go home with you right away.  We tend to get a little possessive of our space so we  would do best with an experienced rabbit owner. However, we are not that picky about housing.  An X-pen would be fine as long as we also get exploring time.  We hope you'll hop on over to the MSPCA so we may get to know you a bit better and see if together we'll be one big happy family!

Major (waiting since March 18th)
7 years old, Pit Bull Mix, Neutered Male

Hello, I'm Major!  I am a 6-year-old neutered Pit Bull mix. I'm a low-key kind of guy looking for a forever home with someone who loves to cuddle.  I like to play with my toys and snuggle on the couch. And sometimes, I just like to hang out. I love other dogs and would love to live with another dog who wants to be my buddy as much as I want to be theirs. I can live children who can handle my size and energy; I'm a puppy at heart with bounding playfulness!  I'd love to go to an obedience class with you-I can always use a refresher, and besides, I know there would be treats involved!  So let's get to know each other and see if we're a perfect match!

Flora (waiting since April 12th)
8 years 1 month 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.

Barq (waiting since March 6th)
1 year, 2 months old, Parakeet, Female

Hi I'm Barq a beautiful green and yellow parakeet.  I came to the MSPCA with my other eight buddies and we are looking for great new homes.  Our owners divorced and could not keep us.  We must go home in pairs or to a single parkeet you may already have that needs a buddy!  We all have different coloring: blue and white, white, yellow, grey and 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 trust 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.  I do hope you will come by and meet me and my other buddies so we can decide if we are your birds of a feather and that we need to be together!!  Come in and meet us today!
