Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Bert

84bf48e5-217a-48ac-a08b-4c3fc030de0cMeet Bert!

Bert is a happy, snuggly, playful adult Shih Tzu mix. He LOVES to go on walks, cuddle with his human, then take a nap in his crate. He recently had his long coat groomed to get ready for a new, happier life.

Bert has some minor vision issues he was probably born with that do not stop him from charging down the sidewalk, navigating stairs or jumping onto the couch. But he does startle easily and would do best with older children.

66f4f214-ba2f-434f-a0a6-5916b35cabcaBert gets along well with the other mellow dog and cats in his foster home. But he would also be happy to have your lap all to himself. He is a very quiet pup, and would do fine in apartment setting. Come meet Bert!

Bert (SAS ID#30192286) is being adored in a foster home; he is not at the Shelter.  If you would like to meet him, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application and follow the instructions for submitting it via email or fax. Or, you may pick up and drop off an application at the Shelter.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Magpie & Rooster

Magpie Rooster 2Meet Magpie and Rooster! Magpie (8 year-old male) and Rooster (1 year-old female) are a bonded pair of leopard geckos. After being surrendered to the shelter, this pretty pair is looking for a solid forever home.

Leopard geckos are inquisitive lizards that are relatively easy reptiles to keep. However, potential adopters should do extensive research on the proper care and feeding of leopard geckos prior to adopting (a good starting place is here), and the primary caregiver must be a responsible adult.

Magpie Rooster 3With good care and lots of love, geckos can live 10 to 15 years or longer. Your geckos will need regular vet checks with an exotic vet.

There is a low fee to adopt a gecko from the Seattle Animal Shelter; however, you are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your adopted reptiles, and your reptile should be treated as an integral part of the family.

If you think you can offer Magpie and Rooster the home they deserve, come into the Seattle Animal Shelter and meet these two today. They are SAS ID#29211821 and 29211982.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Abigail

 

Abigail 1Meet Abigail! Aged like a good pinot noir at 10 years, Abigail has many fine notes. Sweetness and depth are pervasive with nary a hint of tartness. This is a truly fine kitty who looks and acts half her age and yet has mellowed gracefully with time. She is curious, playful, and full of life.

Bring out the laser pointer or feather on a string and she will spring into action for an entertaining romp (see her playing here). In quieter moments, she loves to roll over and have her soft fur stroked or brushed, all the while purring up a storm of contentment.

Abigail 3Like most cats, she will lay on her back and invite you to give her belly rubs. Unlike most cats, it’s not a trap! She loves belly rubs! Another of her favorite activities is to hang out on the cat tree where she can survey her realm and keep a close eye on all happenings. Abby’s previous foster dad describes her as a gentle companion who is happiest when in the same room with you and will snuggle on your lap for a relaxing evening on the sofa.

A well-mannered girl, she has impeccable litter box habits and is a pro with her scratching post. She will occasionally pause in her feather toy chase to use her scratching post or cardboard. A calm to moderately active household would be her ideal, and she should be fine with teens or cat-savvy older kids, but would prefer to be your one and only pet. (She has a history of being bullied by a dog who lived with her, as well as some cats, so she is quite wary of strangers and other pets.)

Abigail 2Like many cats, Abby needs to be fed a specially formulated diet to ensure her urinary tract health, and this food, which she loves to indulge in, is readily available. She chirps to let you know its meal time! In return for this minimum care, she will make a healthy, playful, and wonderfully loving companion.

Does well-balanced Abby sound like the one who could steal your heart? She’s waiting patiently in foster care for your call (she is not at the Shelter). Contact the Foster Care Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Her SAS ID is #29092863.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Mia

Meet the very special Mia!

Mia 1Mia is a young (11 months), very small (3 ½ lbs.) white female Chihuahua with freckles on her tiny nose, and huge brown eyes. Her front leg was recently amputated due to a severe injury but it hasn’t slowed her down a bit. She runs, plays and goes up and down stairs with ease and speed. You can watch a short video of her here – look at that tail go!

When Mia arrived at her foster home she was withdrawn and shy. With the help of the small dogs in the home, and patience from her foster parent, she has really blossomed. She is now alert and engaged, and loves being part of the action. She also loves sitting on laps and snuggling.

Mia 2With her small size, it would be best for Mia to be in an adults only home. She would like not being left alone for long periods, and would likely do well with another small dog in the home after some introduction. Mia loves her bed and sleeps through the night. She knows how to “sit” and is learning the “wait” command. She uses pee pads regularly. Sometimes she whimpers a bit, but is not a barker so she would be very appropriate for apartment or condo living.

Mia (SAS ID #30369433 is being adored in a foster home, she is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application and follow the instructions for submitting it via email or fax. Or, you may pick up and drop off an application at the Shelter.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Penny & Pence

Penny and Pence 1Meet Penny & Pence!

These are two wonderful rabbits. Penny (female) and her brother Pence (male) have become a tightly bonded pair. They really do enjoy their people time and play time. They will take all the pets you can bestow upon them. They love their greens and barley biscuit treats, often standing tall to take their treats out of your hand.

These rabbits would do well in a home where they will have some space to play in, and will get handled frequently. They are approximately one year in age, are spayed/neutered, and have stellar litter box habits!

Penny 1We believe they are Havana rabbits, and they are two good looking rabbits to behold. They will add to the happiness of the home they enter.

Penny and Pence (SAS ID #29133982 and 29134850) are at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Come on by and meet Penny and Pence!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Jude

Meet Jude!

Jude 2Jude is a handsome, active, one year old boy. He loves to play, watch birds outside the windows, chase his feline housemates around, or cuddle up with one of them. His male buddies have played a strong mentoring role in his life and he thrives in their confident, tolerant presence. He is rather shy of humans and it took some time for him to trust his foster mom. He was found living on the street, near the waterfront when he was younger and vulnerable, and had to learn to survive on his own.

He has grown very comfortable living indoors, but loves to go out on the enclosed deck to experience the fresh air and outdoor sounds, perhaps a better view of the nearby woods. He would love a safe outdoor space but could be a flight risk if allowed to wander off – he is easily frightened by anything unfamiliar.

Jude 1Jude is very independent but also has his softer side; he will sometimes quietly sneak up to sit or sleep nearby his human. He doesn’t like to be picked up but responds with purrs when his soft fur is petted.

He goes through phases of fascination with water, sometimes jumping into an empty tub to wait for that trickle of water from the faucet when his person obliges his whims. He also likes the bubbly fountain so he may just prefer his water fresh from the tap and moving. That doesn’t mean he wants a bath, of course.

He has good litter box habits, and is always ready to pounce on balls and furry toy mice tossed to him, or a moving, dangly toy with strings at the ends. He would be a great companion for another cat, preferably a male cat that is confident and easy going. A submissive cat can lead him to believe he is in charge and tempt him to pick on his friend. He needs a stronger feline role model to keep him in line. Once friends, Jude will be devoted and good company for your resident cat.

Jude 3Jude would do best in a quiet, adult home without children; strangers and sudden noises can send him into hiding. He is comfortable with his foster mom and could transfer that trust to a patient, understanding person who will give him time to adjust to new surroundings.

Jude (SAS ID #29127176) is waiting patiently in foster care for your call. Please contact Joan, his foster mom, at wolfbird50@comcast.net if Jude seems like a kitty that would fit well into your life and household. If, after 24 hours, you have not received a reply, please contact the Foster Care Hotline at206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!
