Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Sage & Willow

October 24th, 2014 by Laura

On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Tuesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.

Pooky & Duke (bonded pair of senior dogs) – available for adoption
Mama (lap cat) – available for adoption
Puma (beautiful grey kitty) – available for adoption
Bunnies (Bella, Luna & Roscoe) – available for adoption
Chinchillas – two available for adoption

*****

Sage Willow 2014-10-23 1Meet Sage and Willow!

Willow and Sage are a sweet pair of petite female rats, who were found abandoned outside of the animal shelter. Willow is very friendly, while Sage is a bit on the wary side and protective of Willow. With regular socialization, these girls will be very rewarding pets. Willow and Sage are a bonded pair and must adopted together.

Rats make amazing pets. They require a large cage with plenty of materials to make nests with (paper, old socks, tissues, etc.) and a couple of hideaways to make them in. Cardboard boxes with entry ways cut into them make excellent rat houses. Your pet rats will also need plenty of room to climb and explore.

Sage Willow 2014-10-23 2Rats are highly intelligent and social animals; they do best with a rat buddy or two, and will need daily interaction with their human companions, as well as toys and activities to keep them busy. Rats are charming and engaging animals, and they make rewarding pets.

You’ll need to feed your rats high-quality rat/rodent blocks, supplemented daily with healthy fresh foods (greens, peas, corn, tofu, non-dairy yogurt, fruit, pulses, oats and other whole grains are good choices.). Your rats should always have access to fresh water. With love and care, rats live 2-3 years.

Sage and Willow (SAS ID #14-20883-7 & 8) are at the Seattle Animal Shelter – come on down and meet them!

****** 

Meet Puma!

Puma 2014-10-16 2.Puma is a lovely kitty looking for a forever home after a rough start in life. Found in a grocery store parking lot, a Good Samaritan brought her to the shelter. She has bounced back from that rough start and now loves to play with the feather wand and chirp out the window at squirrels and birds.

Puma is estimated to be about 12 years old but don’t let her age fool you—she is as active as cats half her age! Unfortunately years of untreated inflammation have left her hard of hearing. She is not completely deaf, but should be indoors only for her own safety. Her ears require no expensive treatments or vet care, just typical cleaning.

Puma 2014-10-16 3Ms. Puma would love to be the apple of your eye as an only kitty in a home that will give her ear scritches, playtime, and lots of love to make up for the years she spent abandoned on the streets. A laid-back dog that would not chase her might also be an option after a proper introduction. Her ideal home is one where she can snuggle her human, make air biscuits on your arm, and then nap the day away in a cozy perch with a nice view of outside. She faithfully uses her scratching post, has excellent litter habits, and plays well with her toys. Could your home be the forever one for this adorable girl?

Puma (SAS ID #13-6404) is being adored in a SAS foster home, you won’t find her at the Shelter. If you would to meet her, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Pooky n Duke 2014-10-09 1Meet Duke and Pooky – ‘cuz two are better than one!

Pooky and Duke are best friends that arrived at the shelter together. They have been together almost 11 years – ever since they were pups – and they really need a home together.

The best home for them will be adults only and have some prior dog experience. A home that’s moderately active to calm would be a good fit. They are both house trained, so no worries there.

And both dogs are good with some other dogs (they are GREAT with each other!) and cats, too, with supervision.

Pooky 2014-10-09 1Pooky is a female, Husky mix. She’s a laid back lady – gentle, easy-going and calm. She likes going on walks, and a nice volunteer recently took her to Greenlake. Pooky didn’t make it all the way around the lake (3 miles), but she did well, and when she was all tired out, she hung out in the cool green grass where she got lots of pets and admiration from folks passing by. All the other dogs, kids, bikes and runners at the park didn’t faze her at all.

And in case you didn’t notice – she’s absolutely beautiful!! Pooky has one blue eye and one brown eye, so she’s extra special. She likes having her thick coat groomed so she can keep looking her best. She is probably just a tad overweight, so cutting down on the snacks, and taking a few more walks may be in order. Pooky knows how to ‘sit’ when asked, and she’d be happy to have her new person teach her more!

Duke 2014-10-09 1Duke is a male, Weimaraner/Lab mix. He has a lot of get-up-and-go and spunk for a fellow his age. Recently he went on an outing to Greenlake and he was pretty excited when he got there, but as the walk progressed he calmed down. After walking the lake he had energy to spare. Duke was really interested in all the squirrels and he enjoyed meeting all the new humans and everyone saying how handsome he is (who doesn’t like to hear that!)

He’s a playful guy, and balls are his favorite toy. He already knows ‘sit’ and he’s very interested in treats; he’d be glad to learn more commands if treats are involved! Duke is friendly and outgoing, and an overall great pooch.

These wonderful dogs qualify for the Senior Citizen Discount program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a ‘Gold Card for Healthy Aging’, or a ‘FLASH’ card, issued by the City of Seattle, may adopt an adult dog (at least six years old) at a special price. There will be no fee for the adoption itself, and the licensing fee will be half-price!

Duke and Pooky (SAS ID #1420952-1 & 2) would be honored if you would consider them. Come down to the Shelter today to meet them so they can charm your socks off! Dog Adoption Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax. If you have general questions about these dogs, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.

Meet Martin!

SAS MartinMartin is a very sweet and adorable medium sized lionhead bunny. This friendly little guy, whom his foster mom describes as “absolutely adorable,” can’t wait to have a bigger space to play and run around in with his new forever family and friends.

Martin hops around his cage with delight when he gets his daily treat! He would like to have a bunny companion in his new home. He is fabulous with all the volunteers when at the shelter, and is very patient.

Martin’s long, pretty fur will need regular grooming. He is a neutered adult male who passed a vet check with flying colors – he’s awaiting his perfect home.

Martin (SAS ID #14-18020) is currently being adored in foster care.  If you’re interested in meeting Martin, please call the foster care hotline at 206-684-0685, or email sasfostercritters@gmail.com.

Initially shy of commitment, given his time and space, he comes out from under his blanket, and has love to spare! Hugs, purrs, headbutts, and bedroom eyes are just a few of the moves he’ll use to get onto your lap and into your heart!

Casanova 2014-8-13 1Casanova is treat motivated and an all-around loverboy. If you are looking for a special feline friend, he may be your purr-fect match.

Meet Pria!

Pria 2014-08-07 1Would you like a loyal, sweet and well behaved companion? I am the one!

My name is Pria. I’m a 10 year young, female, Pug-Corgi mix – have you ever seen anything cuter?! I’m a social butterfly who loves people.

I have a pretty balanced life – going for a walk, smelling the grass, chasing the ball are my favorite activities. Of course, how can I not mention sleeping as well! I like to chill at home as much as going out.

Since I love people so much, I prefer to be the only pet in the house to get all the attention. I’d be ok with older, respective children (12+ years old) or in an adults only home.

Pria 2014-08-07 2I know you have your busy life, and I can wait patiently for most of the day in my crate. But at the end of the day, I love nothing more than being part of your family!

Pria (SAS ID #14-19007) is enjoying the good life in a foster home. 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 via email or fax. Or you may pick up an application at the Shelter.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Houdini

Meet Houdini!

Houdini 2014-7-31 1Houdini is a Quaker Parakeet (aka Monk Parakeet), and as his name implies, Houdini is an escape artist. He can find his way out of a closed cage in no time. Houdini is a beautiful and charming guy, and he’s also very loud.

Houdini needs to be adopted by a family with prior bird experience, and preferably experience with and/or extensive research on Quaker Parakeets. A highly adoptable fee will apply; see shelter staff for details.

Parrots are extremely intelligent and social. They need extensive daily enrichment and interaction with their people and other birds. Puzzles containing food or toys/climbing structures for parrots to explore are also great ways to engage the bird’s minds and encourage physical activity.

Houdini 2014-7-31 2Parrots live an extremely long time, so potential adopters should plan on having a Living Will to plan for their parrot’s care. Finding a qualified avian vet is also a challenge and can be more expensive, even for routine care. Most parrots are loud and are not good pets for someone who lives in an apartment or condo.

Houdini (SAS ID #14-19052) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter, come on down and say hello – he might just say “Hi” back!

Usa 2014-7-24 3Meet Ace and Usa!

It’s kitten season and the Shelter has a number of kittens available for adoption, like Ace and Usa. These two are looking for a home together – because the only thing better than one new kitten is TWO new kittens (and they make great companions and playmates for each other)!

Usa 2014-7-24 1Usa is an outgoing and affectionate girl who purrs as soon as you pick her up. She’s playful and fun with her toys, and loves chasing a feather on a string. She’s got the most adorable little short, kinked tail. With her spotted coat and short tail, we’ve been calling her Usa (Japanese for bunny) and she’s just as fast as one!

Ace 2014-7-24 1Ace is a little smaller than his sister, and the shyer of the two, but he loves to play and be petted. He’s most confident when he has his sister around, so that’s another reason they’re looking for a home together. Both are healthy, faithfully use the litter box, and aren’t in the least bit picky about their food.

Ace 2014-7-24 3

Ace and Usa (SAS ID #14-018596-3 & 4) are playing hide and seek in a foster home, they are not at the Shelter. If you would to meet them, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Zack 2014-7-17 1Hi there! I’m Zack, and I’d love to meet you! If you’re looking for a cute, cuddly, friendly dog, then look no further – you’ve found me!

I’m a little shy at first, but warm right up. I love to be held and carried around, so I can be your constant companion.

I also love to go on walks with my human and love kids! I’m good with cats, but I’m a little unsure about other dogs; they’re a lot bigger than me!

Zack 2014-7-17 2I know I’d fit right into your home, so come down to the shelter and ask for me, Zack, today!

Critters of Every Shape and Size

The Seattle Animal Shelter provides refuge for a wide range of animals. This week, meet some of the less common pets that we have available for adoption.

Doves 2014-7-11 1The Dove Family – Bubbles, Promise and Picasso (SAS ID #14-18589/1-3)

This adorable mom, dad, and baby trio are looking for a forever home together. You’ll be charmed in no time by their sweet cooing and gentle nature. Doves are very social and do well with other doves. They are good pets for both novice and experienced bird owners. Doves require simple housing, protection from extreme elements, easily accessible food, and clean water. They are usually active from sun up to sun down. The dove family is at the Shelter. 

Archimedes – The Red-eared Slider Turtle (SAS ID #14-16407)

Archimedes 2014-7-11 1Archimedes is an active and handsome red-eared slider turtle. He’s currently sharing a tank with several other slider turtles at the shelter, all of whom are looking for good forever homes.

Archimedes has an old injury on his shell, which has healed, that adds to his character.

Slider turtles have special requirements in order to stay happy and healthy. Potential adopters should have previous experience with exotic turtles and/or have done extensive research on their care and needs. Archimedes is at the Shelter. 

And Don’t Forget the Chinchillas!

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 1The Shelter took in 21 neglected chinchillas in April – read more about them here. We still have some chins available for adoption, like Skylar and S’more (how cute are they?!)

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 2Skylar is a grey and white chinchilla girl who is friendly, curious about the world, and the leader of the group. She makes herself right at home–whether that’s your lap, on a desk, or exploring under the bed. She’s gregarious and active, and loves to play with your hair and nibble on your nose.

Skylar Smore 2014-7-11 3S’more is a dark brown chinchilla girl with a cute, pointy face. She’s less adventurous than Skylar, but she enjoys the routine of our day. She likes to approach you on her terms, and when you let her decide when it’s time to interact, she’ll try to climb into your pockets. When she’s had enough playtime, she gets back in the cage all on her own.

Skylar and S’more (SAS ID #14-16301/19 & 21) are a bonded pair of female chinchillas who must be adopted together. They are in a foster home, not at the Shelter. Potential adopters should complete a small animal adoption application and fax it to (206) 386-4285 attention Laura Mundy, email it to laura.mundy@seattle.gov or call (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Meet Bella!

Bella 2014-7-3 1Bella is a happy, outgoing, goofball, who expresses herself with thunderous purrs and a comic “snorting” – rather like a piglet. A very sociable girl, she is friendly and perpetually good-natured. She enjoys being the center of attention, and follows her foster mom around, giving head-butts, foot-rubs and belly-exposing flops.

Bella plays hard and is fast on her feet, exhibiting incredible stamina in pursuit of “da bird” and other flying toys, and she loves to swan around the house proudly carrying a captured catnip mouse in her mouth to show off. For relaxation, she likes to snuggle on the sofa with her head in her foster mom’s lap.

Bella 2014-7-3 2Bella is a faithful user of her scratching post, and has impeccable litter box habits. She’s almost perfect… all she lacks is that special person or family who will take her home and love her forever. Other cats don’t ruffle her fur, and she is gentle with cat-savvy kids.

Call the Foster Care Hotline and make an appointment to meet the lovely Bella today!

Bella (SAS ID #14-15176-8) is being lavished with attention in a foster home, she is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Maple 2014-6-26 3Meet Maple!

Howdy, Stranger! I’m Maple, the wonder dog. And just what makes me so special, you might ask? I have all the energy in the universe and I’m both ready and willing to put it towards you, Friend!

I’m a big fan of hikes, jogging and fetch, and I’d love to learn more games and parlor tricks. Keep me active and outside, and I’m happy to help keep you in tiptop shape. Keep up with me if you can! Challenge accepted?

Maple 2014-6-26 1I’d do best in a home where I’m the only pup and if there are kids in the picture, it’d be ideal if they were over 10 years old.

Since I have so much energy, it’d be great if you already had a good grasp on other dogs of my caliber. Can’t wait to meet you at the shelter!

Maple (SAS ID #14-17524) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Dog Adoption Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax. If you have general questions about this dog, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.
