Find-a-Friend Friday: Lily

Lily the fluffy white rabbit gazes past the camera, seemingly entreating the cameraperson for a bowl of freshly picked veggies. You can come over and sneak carrots from my crisper any time, Lily!

OMD Lily, what a gorgeous girl! Such long, fluffy white fur, with just a hint of pink skin showing through. And the veins in her ears – they almost look like ginormous pink leaves of lettuce! Super-adorable, all around. And it’s your lucky day, ’cause the lady would love to come home with you!

Lionhead: An adoptable rabbit in Greenwood, MO
Small • Adult • Female

Lily is a beautiful white lady with an energetic spirit! She just loves digging in boxes, rearranging her pen area, and running around to share her joy with everyone in the room! She also has a sweet, snuggly side and will love cuddling up beside you for some nose and cheek nuzzles. Lily was found running outside and rescued by a good Samaritan. She is a friendly and outgoing girl, but still a little nervous about being picked up and handled too much. She has lived in a foster home with cats and very much enjoys their company as well. Please consider giving this lovely lady a forever home with you!

Lily is staying with the KC chapter of the MO House Rabbit Society, so give ’em a holler if you’re interested in maybe adopting her – or any of their other bunny charges, for that matter. Rabbits don’t seem to be adopted quickly, or at least not around these parts, which is is shame. So sweet and cuddly!

Happy Friday folks, and don’t forget: rabbits are for hugging, not eating! Ditto: dogs, pigs, cows and mice!

Are you ready for some Radar Love?!? ‘Cause T.A.I.L.S. has got about 50 pounds of the stuff, all wrapped up in a cute pibble package, available for take out! As in, bring him home like yesterday!

I need a home. Foster or adopt me!

Radar is a sweet pit bull with huge bat ears. He is a loving companion and will do well in a home without smaller dogs and without cats. He is receptive to correction. Radar is a medium energy level dog and just wants to be around people. He wants nothing more than to snuggle on the couch and sleep in a comfy bed. Radar is house trained and kennel trained and listens very well. Radar needs a calm, assertive pack leader to truly shine! He responds well to leadership, and will need to go to a home (foster or adoptive) that understands that and is willing to work with him. Above all though, Radar is a sweet as can be boy. Can you help him?

Can you offer Radar the forever home he is looking for? Fill out an application today!

Don’t think you can offer Radar a home? Won’t you sponsor him instead then? You can sponsor Radar through our website at http://tailsrescuekc.org/?page_id=78

If oversized, sickly sweet dogs aren’t your thing (WTF NOT!?!), T.A.I.L.S. is also in need of foster and/or adoptive homes for some undersized, sickly sweet shepherd mix pups who were found, abandoned in the February cold with mange, and subsequently relinquished to T.A.I.L.S. by a kind vet who refused to “euthanize” (read: kill) them. Jolly, Patches, and Tootie are their names – and, like Radar, I bet love is their game! Also: actual games. Dogs are the shiz like that, yo!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Pearl

Based in Chicago, Broad Shoulders Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue group that also advocates for veganism and animal rights! In addition to rescuing and rehoming companion animals (so far, cats, dogs and mice!) and supporting trap-neuter-return programs for feral animals, BSAR offers a variety of workshops and engages in vegan outreach. Its members are actively engaged in human rights/social justice movements, too. (Remember Team Vegan Vixens, which will be bowling for abortions in the Abortion Funds’s upcoming Abortion Bowl-a-Thon? Three of the six Vixens are board members at BSAR!)

Though BSAR operates just a wee bit outside of our regular geographic zone, I’d like to introduce you to Pearl, their cat of the month! Having been waiting for her forever home for more than a year and a half, Pearl is BSAR’s longest resident. Pearl’s story is a sad one; she was abandoned at at early age, became pregnant, and was rescued along with her family…but later lost some of her kittens to FIP. Eventually Pearl made her way to BSAR (yay!); while the remaining kittens were all adopted, mom was overlooked (boo!).

Here’s what BSAR has to say about Pearl:

***March, 2011- Pearl is the cat of the month! This sweet girl has been with us the longest of anyone, over a year and half – that’s not her fault, we weren’t advertising her well because her foster home wanted to take her! Her adoption fee is reduced by $30 to help her find a home!***

Pearl is a beautiful young lady, a little over two years old. Extremely opinionated and talkative, she loves being pet and hanging out with you – especially on your chest if you’re laying down or your back if you’re bent over! We believe she’d do best as an addition to a home with few other animals (if any at all) who will leave her alone most of the time.

Pearl loves to play, especially with her cat-sized foam soccer ball. This girl is fast and entertaining to watch! She loves when you join in the game by throwing the ball for her.

Unfortunately, Pearl was abandoned at a young age by her human “family” when they moved and became pregnant at just a few months old. A rescuer took her, her boyfriend & kittens out of the house they were abandoned in, they were all basically skin & bones… Things were looking up until her whole young family came down with FIP. Two kittens died, but the remaining 3 survived along with their parents (since both Pearl and her boyfriend were young, they had symptoms also).

As it often sadly goes, her kittens were adopted but their mother was overlooked. Can you open you heart to this girl who needs to be shown love so desperately?

All of our kitties are microchipped (which will be registered at no extra cost at the time of adoption), up to date on their shots, spayed or neutered, have had preventative care (including parasite treatment) and treatment for any illness while in our care- plus, one month of free pet insurance!

Please email broadshouldersrescue [at] gmail.com or call 773-320-2753 to set up an appointment to meet one of our friendly cats!

Look! Pearl’s even the star of her very own adoption vid on youtube!
 


 
Throughout the month of March BSAR made a push to get this lovely lady adopted, but so far no luck. Let’s see if we can change that, kay? Spread the word – if you live in or near Chicago and are looking for a new feline friend (or know someone who is!), please consider Pearl.

And wherever you reside, please make a donation to BSAR if you can. They do great work on a shoestring budget, and are currently hosting a drive on ChipIn to help raise money for medical supplies, veterinary fees and the like. So far they’ve raised 10% of their $3,000 goal, with $2,700 left to go – any amount will help!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Woozelnaree

Ferrets! It’s not often that I feature ferrets in this here space, ’cause there aren’t usually of whole lot of the little buggers available for adoption – or at least not locally – and those who are, are usually listed through the Kansas City Ferret Hotline. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; not at all! I just like to highlight a wide variety of animal rescue groups, too.

Woozelnaree is currently staying at Wayside Waifs, which you probably know through its dog and cat rescue and educational activities. In the several years that I’ve been writing this column, Woozelnaree is the first ferret I’ve ever seen at Wayside. Here’s what they have to say about the little guy:

Woozelnaree
Ferret: An adoptable ferret in Kansas City, MO
Medium • Young • Male

Hi, I’m Woozelnaree! I’m a very handsome guy looking for a home to call my own. I’m a very well mannered ferret, and I’m usually easy to handle. I love to explore my surroundings and watch everything going on around me. Of course, I always want to join in on all the fun and mischief.

Are you familiar with ferrets? If not, let me enlighten you with some ferret facts. According to a popular ferret website, we are “the third most common uncaged pets in North America today.” How cool is that? That means more and more people are “ferret proofing” their homes and letting us live cage free. Once we are litter boxed trained and you have ferret proofed your home, you can let your ferret roam free around him/her room. Of course, you’ll want to keep my living area free of debris that I could ingest! And you’ll want to watch where you step or move things, just to keep me out of harms way. I’m very gregarious, and I love meeting new people. Ferrets are very social pets, and we often do well with being kept with other ferrets. What is life without a best friend?

Now you should know that I do have my faults. I am a bit of a kleptomaniac! Sorry, but it’s true! I’ll take whatever I can fit in my mouth and make off with it as quickly as I can. Don’t be surprised while you’re cleaning if you find my stockpile of stolen things. Those things may or many not include your long forgotten missing sock, a dryer sheet, a cat toy, a roll of stamps, some of your childrens’ toys, a dog toy, and the drain stopper to your tub. Consider yourself warned! And sometimes, just sometimes, we ferrets get a little excited and will give you a love nip. It usually doesn’t hurt much, but it is one of the ways we explore our world and surroundings. So if you aren’t comfortable helping me learn good play manners, than I may not be the right pet for you. If I still sound like your perfect pet, come make me yours today! I can’t wait to meet you! Ask to meet me, Woozelnaree, today!

Click here to see all the animals at Wayside Waifs. Please call our Adoptions Department if you are interested in this animal to make certain he/she is still available for adoption! ADOPTION INFORMATION: All Wayside Waifs pets are spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations prior to adoption. Please note that in order to make the best match possible, potential adopters must come to the Wayside Waifs in person to meet with an adoption counselor and complete the adoption process. All members of the household (including other pets, if possible) should be present to ensure the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. We do not place holds or do adoptions over the phone and we do not ship pets.

Forrest and Jenny, oh my dog. Their names alone are enough to slay you with both sweetness and sorrow! This bonded pair of youngsters – big, silly German Wirehaired Pointers, them both – are currently staying with German Wirehaired Pointer Rescue Inc., which would like to keep them together. Obvs.

Forrest and Jenny are here. They are lovely dogs that would be good for a family. They have very good manners, and are a moderate energy. They are very connected to one another, and do well. They are fully vetted, microchipped, and ready to start their new lives. He is also said to around 18 months old. Jenny is approximately 12 months old. I can tell Forrest has raised Jenny.

Jenny-Family Dog
German Wirehaired Pointer: An adoptable dog in Olathe, KS
Medium • Baby • Female

Now Mom has written about me below, but I can tell you I am a dream. I would be good with children, and not many of us are. We like to jump up and play rough, but not me. I am a really sweet little girl. I would love to go on walks, car rides, and be someone’s lap doggie. Forrest really loves me, and I am his side kick, but Mom feels I would get on with most any dog….Please see the website to fill out an application www.GwpRescue.com.

Signed, Jenny!

Jenny and Forrest both have excellent manners, no jumping up, seem to be house broken…someone has loved them, but Jenny seems to be very gunshy. Well, well….why does that not surprise me? I believe they were let go or left in the field, they are sweet golden retriever types in a wire suit. Jenny is new to rescue…she is a moderate middle of the road energy sweet GWP that is 12 months old. She and Forrest get along extremely well, and adore each other.. She is a sweetheart, and has had all vetting. She is microchipped, crate trained and good on leash! Please see our website www.gwprescue.com for all requirements and info on adopting.

Unlike some of our recent features, Forrest and Jenny are located close to Kansas City, in Olathe, Kansas. If you don’t have a dog and are thinking about adopting one, why not consider two? You won’t even need to think of a cute set of matching names!
