Vinny 1Meet Vinny!

My name is Vinny and not to brag, but I’m probably about the cutest puppy you have ever seen, with my brown “goggles,” ears and freckles. I’m a Pomchi (Pomeranian-Chihuahua) with a bit of Chinese-Crested too. I will stay a nice convenient size. I’m about six months old now and I’ve been going to puppy play group which is a lot fun. Even though I’m the smallest one there, I have made many good friends with the big dogs, as long as they don’t squash me!

I sleep in my crate at night, but like every puppy, I need to get out for a bathroom break. I like to roughhouse and play fetch and tug of war, but I really enjoy curling up on a nice warm lap for a nap (did I mention I’m the perfect size for a lap?) I’m affectionate and energetic and get very excited when I meet new people or animals. I’m sure I’d be a great addition to the right family!

Vinny 2There is no such thing in all the world as an unattractive puppy – they’re made this way so we don’t throttle them for the mischief they can cause! But they will only be an adorable puppy for a short period of time, before long they’ll be an active, demanding, adult dog, so be fully prepared for a life-long commitment before you apply.

Adopting a puppy is great fun, but puppies require a LOT of dedicated time for training and socialization, including exposure to many different situations. This means puppy classes, lots of daily exercise, playtime, attention, and ongoing training will be essential as this dog will be energetic and playful for many years to come. A household or guardian who is ready to take on the challenges of housetraining, grooming, and making sure their new family member becomes a well adjusted canine citizen is necessary.

Vinny 3Because puppies have very sharp and persistent needle-like teeth, they may not be suited to a home with small children. This pup will no doubt be a very active and smart adult dog, and needs an active, energetic guardian who can provide lots of mental and physical stimulation to prevent boredom – as dogs will make their own fun, and their definition of fun might not be the same as yours! Please do some research on bringing up puppies before submitting an application for adoption.

Dog Star Daily is a great website to help you determine if a puppy is right for you, and which breed. Check out the Training Text book section and all the fabulous topics under that title. And, in an attempt to educate prospective puppy owners before they get their puppies, Dr. Ian Dunbar has offered his book ”BEFORE You Get Your Puppy” for free. Finally, here’s another great free resource for what to do once you bring your new pup home.

Vinny (SAS ID #15-115) is cuddled up in a foster home. 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 an application at the Shelter. If you have general questions about Vinny, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Cats!

March 20th, 2015 by Laura Fonda

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.

Iggy Azalea (snuggly iguana) – available for adoption
Goldie (glamorous orange and white feline) – adopted!
Buttercup (hippity hoppity bunny) – available for adoption
Walter & Jesse (friendly pair of rats) – available for adoption

Calling all cat lovers!

Over the months, we’ve featured three sweet kitties that for some reason are still looking for their forever homes. Maybe you were on vacation and missed Mama’s post. Or had a crazy busy week and didn’t get a chance to read about Folson. Here’s your second chance. These sweeties have been waiting patiently in their foster homes, but they’d be thrilled to meet you. Just call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting.

Mama the Nurturer

Mama 1Mama’s name reflects all the nurturing qualities she displays daily. She loves to show affection and warmth. She is a lap cat and enjoys nestling up to you whether you are sitting on the couch or lying in bed. Mama is about 9 years young and gets along well with other cats. It took her no time at all to befriend her foster mom’s 1 year old cat, proving that she can keep up with the youngins. In fact, she’d prefer a home where either her person is home a lot, or where she has another cat to keep her company while her person is at work.

Mama needs a little extra TLC because she has diabetes. She’s on a special diet and requires a very low dose of insulin twice a day. She’s in great health otherwise, and is super easy to medicate. The vet says that perhaps over time she can be cured. But even with the diabetes, she’s a low-key kitty that’s easy to care for. She’s house-trained, spayed and arrived at the shelter declawed. Mama will make someone a great pet, and give a lot of love in return!

Thea the Hunter

Thea 1Thea’s a gentle, friendly young girl who would like to be your only pet. Calm and affectionate, Thea loves head and chin rubs. At times, she’ll climb straight into your arms and purr madly in your ear; at others, she might hang back a little and let you bring the love to her. Either way, Thea is very much a people’s cat and a fan of human attention! And she’s quite the ferocious little hunter – just watch her eyes light up and her rump start to wiggle when a string toy crosses her path!!

If you’ve never had a cat before, easygoing Thea would be a great match for you; she’s sweet and even quite cooperative about being brushed. Did we mention that she’s gorgeous, too? Modest Thea would never call attention to it herself, but she is one fine-looking little girl, with her pink nose and classic black and white markings.

Folson the Brave

Folson 1Folson is a gorgeous, dark-furred beauty of a tabby. Her most charming qualities may be her positively plush-perfect fur coat and soulful, piercing green eyes. She’s a fun-loving, adventuresome girl who’s rather brave. Folson adapts easily to new environments and loves to explore. She can often be found perched on a windowsill gazing outside, lost in thought – we’re sure she’s imagining all sorts of outdoor exploits.

Folson also loves lazy weekends curled up on a cushion. Sometimes she’ll come over and watch a movie with you, especially if you look extra comfy! She’s a pro with the litter box, up to date on her shots and spayed. Overall, she’s a pretty mellow lady with a playful streak that would love nothing more than to meet the human(s) that will love her unconditionally and give her a forever home.

If you’re interested in any of the kitties featured this week, call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Hopefully next week we can report that all three have been adopted!!

Meet Walter and Jesse!

Walter Jesse 2Well hello there! That handsome grey/fancy fella there is Jesse, and that’s me, Walter, in the beautiful white coat. Pretty darn attractive gentlemen, aren’t we? We’re a friendly pair of male rats who came into the shelter after being abandoned. What a lousy thing for someone to do, but no matter, we’re safe and warm in a cozy foster home now. We’re looking forward to moving on with our lives and into a new human family that will love and care for us. We’re fairly well socialized and looking for a home where we’ll get plenty of attention from our human friends. I love pets and skritches, and while Jesse is a little more reserved, he’ll come around for the right treats. As you might imagine, we’re very attached to each other and must be adopted together.

Walter Jesse 1If you’ve never had a pet rat before – well, you really don’t know what you’re missing! Rats are highly intelligent and social animals (if I may say so myself), and we do best with a rat buddy or two, that’s why it’s important that Jesse and I stay together. We need daily interaction with our human companions, as well as toys and activities to keep us busy. They say rats are charming and engaging animals, and they make rewarding pets – Jesse and I would love to prove that to you.

We’re pretty easy keepers, but we do need 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. We’ll also need plenty of room to climb and explore.

The best food for us is high-quality rat/rodent blocks, supplemented daily with healthy fresh foods like greens, peas, corn, tofu, non-dairy yogurt, fruit, pulses, oats and other whole grains. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Of course, we should always have access to fresh water. With love and care, rats live 2-3 years.

We’d love to meet you so call the Critter Foster Line at (206) 684-0685 or emailsasfostercritters@gmail.com to set up a meeting.

Ryder 1Meet Ryder!

Ryder is an affectionate cutie with an earnest expression and magnificent ears!

At about 6 years old, Ryder loves human attention and likes to keep moderately active – leisurely walks are about his speed.

He’ll do well in a home with some prior dog experience, and he’s a great buddy for people aged 6 and up. This sweet little guy is a real bundle of love; your lap will never go cold when he’s around!

Ryder 3 Ryder 2

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Slate

March 1st, 2015 by Laura Fonda

On Fridays [Sunday this week due to travel and getting sick while on said travel – yuck.] 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.

Meet Slate!

Slate 2Slate is a pretty boy with luscious blue-gray fur and golden eyes. He was a stray taken in by a caring woman who couldn’t keep him because she had three other cats. Slate was most likely feral originally, but quickly learned to love the human touch. His caretaker was able to groom him twice a day, which he loved (and still does!) We don’t know his age, but he is probably a middle age adult. The vet says he is not particularly old.

Slate is very healthy, but he is FIV positive (FIV=Feline Immunodeficiency virus), which means he had mostly likely been bitten by another FIV+ cat in his past life as a stray on the streets. (He is not an aggressive cat, though.) FIV+ cats can typically live normal lives both in quality and duration, when they have loving and caring homes. He should be an only cat, or only live with another FIV+ cat.

Slate 1Slate is very healthy and happy now, but he arrived at the Shelter with some gum disease and bad teeth that have been extracted (thanks to charitable donations to the SASF “Help the Animals Fund”). He has 4 teeth left, and that doesn’t stop him from having a great appetite, or slow him down in any way!

Today, Slate is an avid lap-sitter and loves playtime, as well as being groomed, petted and scratched with a back-scratcher.

He likes watching TV, especially if there are birds on the screen he can swat at! Just check out this fun video of him:

Slate is being lavished with love and pets in a foster home. Please call Deb at (206) 234-7739 for more information about Slate and to make arrangements to meet him.

Buttercup 2Meet Buttercup!

I’m Buttercup, and as you can see I’m awfully cute! I’m not afraid to admit it, because my foster parents tell me all the time just how cute I am. They also say that I’m very smart and adventurous.

I don’t like being picked up, but I absolutely love to be petted! I will show my appreciation for your pets in kind, by grooming your hand. Another one of my many good qualities is that I am very good at using my litter box.

I’m looking for a forever home where I’ll get lots of love and attention (on my own terms of course). I’d love a home where I’d have a large enclosure to run around, play in, and explore.

Buttercup 3More About House Rabbits: House rabbits need a large, rabbit-proofed **indoor** area of your home to live in, with covered areas to hide and relax in. Rabbits are intelligent and social animals; they do best with a rabbit companion, and need daily interaction with their human friends. Rabbits should be fed high-quality hay pellets, unlimited hay, and fresh leafy greens. (Leaf lettuce, carrot tops, parsley, cilantro, and pesticide-free dandelion are good choices.) Treats include small portions of carrot or fruit, such as apple, berries, pear, grape, or banana.

Buttercup 1Your rabbit will need regular nail trims and vet checks. With proper care and lots of love, rabbits can live to be 10-12 years old. You are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your bunnies, and they should be treated as an integral part of the family. The primary caregiver must be a responsible adult, and young children should always be supervised when interacting with your bunny and instructed on proper approach and handling. Household cats or dogs should, of course, also be carefully supervised at all times and introduced in a calm and quiet manner.

If you’re interested in meeting Buttercup (SAS ID #14-22738), contact the foster care hotline today at (206) 684-0685.

Thor 2015-02-12 1Meet Thor!

In Norse mythology, Thor is the god associated with thunder, strength and the protection of humankind. In dog lore, this Thor is known for his legendary spirit, gleaming white smile and his ever wagging tail.

True to his name, Thor is a lively, loving, confident fire ball.

At one year old, Thor has puppy vitality and will benefit from an experienced owner, and continued training to help him channel his energy.

Thor 2015-02-12 2He will enjoy joining you in robust activities such as long walks, hiking and jogging. After lots of exercise and fun, Thor loves to jump up on the couch and snuggle with you.

Thor is dog friendly and plays well with other large, exuberant dogs. Cats remind Thor too much of Loki, so he needs a feline free home.

Due to his youthful enthusiasm, size and energy level, he is not suitable for homes with young children.

Thor 2015-02-12 3Being named after a lightening throwing deity means you have a lot to live up to, but with time, training, patience and love, Thor will prove what a true hero he can really be.

Thor (SAS ID #15-678) is at the Shelter just waiting to meet you!

Meet Charles & Raymond

Charles Raymond 2015-01-29 1Charles (sable) and Raymond (cream/sable) are a wonderful pair of male ferrets. These two were surrendered to the shelter when their owner had to move out of the country. Charles and Raymond are so much fun!! They are super high-energy, friendly and playful. If you need some fun and excitement in your life, Charles and Raymond would be great new friends for you. This pair is well-socialized and will delight you with their antics. Charles and Raymond are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.

More about pet ferrets: Ferrets need a large multi-level cage or enclosure with hammocks to snuggle in and towels to burrow under and nest in. Ferrets are very good litter box users and should be provided with a regularly-cleaned litter box. (Most litters are safe for ferrets; however, do not use cedar or pine shavings, or clay-based cat litters.)

Ferrets need to be fed a high-quality ferret kibble (Zupreem or Mazuri brands are good choices), and have access to fresh water at all times. Ferrets have A LOT of energy and love to play; your ferrets will need daily free-play time in a ferret-safe area of your home, so they can run around, chase each other, and play. Ferrets often like to chase/play with cat toys.

There is a low fee to adopt a ferret from the Seattle Animal Shelter; however, you are expected to make a lifetime commitment to your adopted ferrets. The primary caregiver must be a responsible adult, and your ferrets should be treated as an integral part of the family. Your ferrets will also need regular nail trims and vet checks. With good care and lots of love, ferrets can live to be 6-10 years old.

Charles and Raymond (SAS ID #15-000210-1 & 2) are at the Shelter waiting to meet you!

Panda, the mom, is about 6 years old and a bit more outgoing than her 2-year-old son, Riley. (Riley’s the charmer in the pink sweater.) Both love to sit on laps and snuggle. They’re as fond of their people (ages 10 and up) as they are of each other, and they also do well with cat and dog companions. So easygoing, so lovable!

All Panda and Riley ask is to stay together in a calm, quiet household where they can enjoy leisurely walks and lots of couch time with their new human friends. These affectionate sweethearts are easy to keep and perfect for first-time dog owners. Come meet this awesome little duo and see if they’re the ones for you!

Goldie 2015-01-15 2Meet Goldie!

Goldie is a beautiful, loving cat with the poise of a 30’s film star wearing a satin evening gown. She keeps her fur spotless and can cover her eyes with her tail while napping.

Shy at first, she quickly warmed into the loving sweetheart she is today. She loves to sit on your lap while you read or use the computer, and share your bed. She enjoys watching the world through the window.

Goldie 2015-01-15 1Life hasn’t always been so glamorous for Goldie. When she came to the shelter, her teeth were so infected they had to be removed.

She’s healthy now and won’t need additional dental care. She eats small kibble and canned food with gusto, and at 7 years, she’s just hitting middle age.

Goldie is waiting patiently for her forever family in a foster home; she is not at the Shelter. If you are ready to share your lap and listen to lots of purring, please call the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting.
