Find-a-Friend Friday: Tango

Meet Tango, this week’s Friend in need! Tango is just one of many birds in the area who need an adoptive home to call their own.

This blue, yellow and white macaw dude is current staying with Burge Bird Rescue, who has this to say about Tango:

Tango plucks his chest a bit, but had perfect blood test results, so it may be from boredom or stress and may resolve once he gets settled into a new home. He is a sweetheart and likes to be petted once he gets out of the cage and gets used to you. He is only 8 years old, with lots of good years ahead of him. Our birds are not available for breeding. Potential adopters must call for an appointment, and must pass a screening interview to ensure that our birds are going to a safe home. Adoption fee $400 negotiable for the right home.

If you’d like to adopt this gorgeous guy, contact Burge Bird Rescue today! FYI: Beak N’ Wings in Shawnee Mission, KS also has a number of bird companions available for adoption.

OMG Y’ALL FOXWOOD ANIMAL HOSPITAL HAS THE CUTEST MOTLEY CREW OF KITTENS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! They’re only a few months old, and super-tiny, and their fur is all the colors of the rainbow! Okay not really, but some of the little guys and gals are different colors: there are three black kittens, one black and brown tortoise shell, and an orange and white mini-Morris-looking baby. Normally I don’t feature the pups and kits, since they’re usually the first to be adopted in shelter/rescue situations, but OMG THE CUTENESS!

PLEASE CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT! 5 Kittens: Born 8/10; 2 Black Female, 1 Black Male, 1 Orange Male, 1 Torti Female

Contact: Call Dawn at 816-665-2339 (Please leave a message if no answer and I will call you back)

Very sweet and playful. Current on shots, Adoption fee is $75 and that includes shots and spay/neuter and felv/fiv neg.

Seriously, if you adopt one of these buggers, you must invite me over to cat-sit some time. What’s that? Cats don’t need sitters? Poppycock!

If kittens aren’t your cup of love, Foxwood has plenty of adult cats in need of homes, too. Adopt, don’t shop!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Ali

November 12th, 2010 11:18 am by Kelly

Ali is a black, tan and white basset hound/dachshund mix – though her short, thick legs, long body, droopy ears and large head give her that classic wiener dog look.

I combed through dozens of Petfinder listings this morning, looking for THE perfect dog to introduce y’all to. Problem is, they’re all perfect! Every animal is special and unique in her own way, and the many canines whose stories I pored over today are no exception. Finally I settled on dear Ali, for no reason other than that she reminds me of my own dachshund friend Ralphie, who underwent surgery to remove his right eye yesterday (melanoma; we’ll know next week whether it was malignant) and is recovering on my lap as we speak. Point being, Ali is just one of thousands of wonderful, loving individuals in need of a home at this very moment. If you’re looking to welcome a new nonhuman friend into your family, please consider adopting – rescuing – one of these many Friends in need.

Okay, so. On to Ali, who is currently staying with Animals Best Friends in Independence, MO. Here’s what he foster peeps have to say about this lovely lady:

I know that look! Miss Ali is about to stir up some trouble.

This cuddle bug is Ali. She was born in 2006. She LOVES attention and to be loved on as much as you are willing to give her. She does great with other dogs and loves to sniff and play outside whenever she has the chance to… She is crate and house trained as well. She would make a great companion for someone. She is looking for that furever home. Please open your hearts and your home to this pretty girl.

Find-a-Friend Friday: Simon

Simon is a small, furry, black and white pig(let) with a large, round pink nose. Look up the word “adorable” in a dictionary, and there Simon will be, smiling right back at you!

We’re mixing things up this week with a potbellied pig Friend instead of the usual dog or cat! I enjoy featuring less traditional “pet” animals – particularly farmed animals such as cows, pigs and chickens – but rarely have the chance; animals belonging to these species are more likely to be killed and eaten than adopted and loved, especially here in the midwest, and thus there are very few “food” animals available for adoption ’round these parts. (Holy run-on sentence, Catwoman!)

All of which is precisely why dear Simon lives not in Kansas or Missouri, but Iowa. Still, it’s a short distance to drive in exchange for all this cuteness!

Simon
Pot Bellied: An adoptable pig in Des Moines, IA
Medium • Young • Male

Simon is a fun, friendly 6-month-old pig who loves attention and playtime. He is potty trained and responds to come, stay and stand. He needs a home with no children under 7 and no large dogs. Adopters MUST be experienced with potbellied pigs — no exceptions.

Simon will be a smaller pig, so he will need to either be an indoor pig or have a heated enclosure available to him.

Simon will remain in his foster home until he is adopted. If you are interested in learning more about him or setting up an appointment to meet him, contact Laura at (515) 473-9105 or at medical [at] arl-iowa.org.

As always, thank you for adopting!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Nikita

Nikita is a brownish-tannish-grayish domestic shorthair feline with a funny white chin, gorgeous green eyes, and a cute pink button nose. In this picture, la feline femme stares into the camera, her features accentuated by the black and white spotted background.

This week’s Friend hails from the mean streets of Belton, Missouri, where she was picked up by animal control and brought to HELP Humane Society. Originally thought to be a feral cat, Nikita was entered into HELP’s trap, neuter & return (TNR) program…which she promptly flunked out of. Nikita, it seems, prefers the pampered life. Can you blame her?

Is this girl gorgeous or what?! Nikita was a feral kitten when she was brought in by animal control. She was put through our TNR (trap, neuter & return) program for feral cats…..which is why you see an eartip. While recovering from her vetting she decided that she would like to be tame and stay inside with the 2-leggeds that appeared to be taking care of her every need. So she stayed…..she is very affectionate and is awesome with other kitties…….how can you resist that?! Nikita, girl, born approx 2005

So, who will be Nikita’s new bipedal servant? Prospective volunteers should report to HELP, vet references in hand, ASAP!
