Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Taco

Taco 2Meet Taco! You won’t be able to leave without Taco as soon as you look into her big green eyes. She purrs very loudly and loves a pat between her ears and under her chin.

She likes sitting on your lap and is the perfect snuggle buddy on the couch in front of the TV. Taco also loves playtime and her fishing pole toys. Sometimes she’s caught pawing them when no one is around, just to check if they are going to move.

Taco is a sweetheart who enjoys being around people and will purr when you give her attention. She likes attention so much, when you get home from work she greets you with a meow and expects a pat back in return.

Taco 1She loves being in the same room as you, always curious at what you are up to. Her favorite places to sit are next to you, on your lap or on the backrest of the couch next to your shoulders.

Taco was quick to get used to her new foster home, she was sleeping on the bed on her first night and has had no problems using the litter box.

Taco 3Taco will do best in a household without other cats: she wants your love all to herself! She isn’t demanding at all and won’t tear up the house while you are out during the day. Set up a time to meet her and get ready to fall in love.

You won’t find Taco (SAS ID #30422207) at the shelter – she’s being lavished with attention in a foster home. Please contact the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Quince & Fiona

Fiona_Quince 4Quince and Fiona are bunny siblings who have never been separated and must be adopted together. (Of course, they are both neutered.) In addition to being very cute, they also have exquisitely soft and thick fur. Both are super friendly and love attention but on their own terms. Quince enjoys “bunstruction,” rearranging the items in his habitat to his liking, and it can be quite entertaining to watch him do this.

Rabbits can make great house pets. They are quiet, have lots of personality and bond closely with their humans. 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.

Fiona_Quince 3Rabbits 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. Your 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.

Fiona_Quince 1You 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 be carefully supervised at all times.

Fiona and Quince (SAS ID# 30058019 and 30066199) can be found romping around the Critter Room at the Shelter (Quince will probably be rearranging something).

Come on down and meet them and their bunny friends today!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Oswald

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.35.38 PMMeet Oswald!

Are you looking for a walking buddy? Someone to help you stay motivated to get outside a few times a day?

Oswald is a distinguished, full figured gentleman seeking his forever home and a walking pal. He is looking forward to a home dedicated to helping him with sensible weight reduction and exercise (nothing too strenuous to start).

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.34.46 PMHe’s an eight year old Chihuahua mix. As he loses weight and becomes fitter, he’ll seem even younger! [Look at that photo, he’s feeling younger already! What a ham!]

Oswald is sweet, calm and easy to handle. He will thrive in a patient home where he will get lots of TLC. He enjoys leisurely walks and likes being petted. He would be an excellent choice for someone considering their first dog adoption.

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.35.49 PMOswald also qualifies 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!

Oswald (SAS ID#31495352) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter waiting for you to come meet him!

Charlie 1Charlie is a sweet senior Beagle, looking for love and a happy home. He is gentle and calm, loves leisurely walks, and gets along with everyone.

Charlie is very well behaved on his leash, and rides well in the car. He would be happy in a quiet home with plenty of snuggle time. If you are looking for a sweet, cooperative and affectionate companion, Charlie is your guy.

You can find Charlie (SAS ID# 31483727) at the Shelter. Come down and meet this great guy today!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: GG

Gg 2This guy is great! GG needs a short time to acclimate to new surroundings, but once he settles in, he is curious and wants to spend all his time with his humans.

He needs lots of rump rubs and wants to give everyone a friendly head butt. He loves to talk to you in his quiet voice and responds when you talk in cat to him. He even knows his name.

GG 1GG likes to play with his mouse toy, but he is a bit lazy – he wants you to bring the toy to him. He’s in the prime of his life (approximately 8 years old) and is currently the only pet in his foster home. But he’s been around a dog that knew cats, and GG ran the show. He’d probably be okay joining a family with a cat-savvy dog.

This guy really is great, and so trusting and loving. Give the G-Man a permanent home today!

GG (SAS ID#3018154) is patiently waiting in a foster home; he is not at the Shelter. Please call the Foster Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange to meet the amazing GG.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Toby

Toby 3Are you ready to go out and embrace Spring? Toby sure is!

Toby is a big, handsome, high energy dog who is seeking his forever home. Toby loves the ball, going for walks and has the gift of gab.

With his John Wayne cowboy swagger and shiny black coat, he has movie star looks and appeal.

Toby 1At four years old, Toby is past the crazy puppy stage and ready to make up for the lack of training in his early life. He’d love a buddy that is willing to continue working on his manners and teach him some tricks. (Training is a great way for you to bond with your new dog, too!) He would prefer to be your one-and-only canine companion.

Toby 2Toby will thrive in a home where he will get lots of play time and exercise. He is happy-go-lucky, eager to please and can’t wait to meet his forever family.

Come on down to the Seattle Animal Shelter to meet Toby (SAS ID#31180923). He can’t wait to meet you!
