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, 1 month 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.

King (waiting since February 17th)
6 years, 2 months old, Neutered Male

Hi! My name is King. And of course, that's how I prefer that you treat me. A good sameritain has been taking care of me outdoors for the past 6 years, but I decided I wanted to live inside as a pet. I love being pet and am looking forward to finding my first ever forever home where my new reign can begin! I am FIV postive so I should be a strictly indoor only cat, ask a staff member for more information on what that means for me. Until then I'll be here waiting for your visit. And since I'm already neutered I can go home with you today so our happily ever after can begin tonight!

Tesla (waiting since October 21st)
2 years, 1 month old, 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.

Felix and Chewy (waiting since February 18th)
4 years, 2 months old, Chinchillas, Male

Hi!  We are Chewy and Felix, two adorable chinchillas looking for a great home.  Chewy is the more relaxed of the two of us (pictured on the red sheet) and Felix is curious and mischevious.  Our owner traveled too much and could not care for us so we are looking for our new forever home.  We hope you'll come by and meet us today!


Major (waiting since March 18th)
6 years, 11 months 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!

Butterscotch (waiting since February 26th)
7 years old, Intact Female

Hi, my name's Butterscotch.  I'm a sweet orange tabby, and as you can see from my photo I'm intently looking for my forever home.  I'm a friendly girl with mesmerizing eyes.  I love getting your attention and being petted.  I also have a lot of energy and love to play.  I don't have a favorite toy, yet; I'm hoping we can pick one out together here at the shelter to bring home.  I do hope you'll stop by soon, so we can play a while and see if we make a purrfect pair.

Barq (waiting since March 6th)
1 year, 1 month 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!
