Branson Tyke 1
Meet Branson & Tyke!

Sometimes good things come in pairs, and that’s definitely the case with Branson and Tyke – two Chihuahua mixes who are the very definition of adorable. These sweet little guys love each other and also love people and other dogs.

They are extremely bonded, and would like to be adopted together. Branson and Tyke are young, and they’re still learning about the big world outside.

Branson Tyke 3They have been doing great at their foster home and have learned to sit for treats and meals, to wait before going through the door, and to “leave it.” They would benefit from an adult-only home with some dog experience where they can continue their training.

They enjoy wrestling each other, snuggling and chewing on their toys. They ride well in the car and look forward to going places. They are house-trained and do great at home with regular bathroom breaks.

So apply to meet Branson and Tyke today. They’re ready to enter your life and make it a lot more fun!

Branson Tyke 2Branson and Tyke (SAS ID #15-2099-1 & 2) are being adored in a foster home, you won’t find them at the Shelter. If you would like to meet them, 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 Branson and Tyke, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.

Kiki 3Meet Kiki!

Kiki is an older gentleman with few needs other than a warm place to curl up his slightly arthritic limbs and an occasional head rub. Sweet but undemanding, he likes to be near you but not necessarily on you – a perfect low-key companion for a first time cat owner or someone who is a wee bit of a curmudgeon themselves.

Kiki 2Kiki was found abandoned and running loose – who could walk away from that wise and pensive face? He’s about 14 years old, but could easily be a contented, healthy, happy foot warmer at the end of your bed for several more years. To keep his renal system healthy, he is on a special food that’s readily accessible at any vet’s office. Won’t you give this dude a cozy spot to spend his golden years?

Kiki 1This wonderful cat 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 cat (at least six years old) at a special price: no fee for the adoption itself and the licensing fee will be half-price!

Kiki (SAS ID #14-13775) is being adored in a foster home; he is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet him, please call the Foster Care Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

*****Mama Sydney 3

Meet Mama & Sydney!

Mama (female/yellow) and Sydney (male/grey) are a bonded pair of friendly and well-socialized cockatiels.

Cockatiels are intelligent and active birds; they enjoy attention from their human friends, and need a spacious cage with multiple perches and lots of toys to keep them busy.

Mama Sydney 1They should be fed a high quality pellet such as Harrison’s or ZuPreem Natural Avian Maintenance, and have access to fresh water at all times.

Cockatiels also enjoy a variety of healthy treats like fresh fruits, vegetables, cooked pasta, cooked brown rice, and cooked legumes. (But DO NOT FEED them avocado – it’s poisonous to cockatiels.)

Potential adopters should research a full list of safe and toxic foods prior to bringing a new pet bird home. As with all birds, cockatiels require regular checkups at an exotic vet.

Mama Sydney 2With good care and lots of love, cockatiels can live 20 or more years.

Mama and Sydney (SAS ID #15-3391-1 & 2) must be adopted together, and are good candidates for a first-time bird owner. They are currently being lavished with attention in a foster home and are not at the Shelter.

If you’re interested in adopting this charming pair, please call the foster care hotline at (206) 684-0685, or email sasfostercritters@gmail.com.

Ace 2Meet the ultra-cool Ace!

Ace is a Jack Russell Terrier, possibly mixed with some Corgi due to his shorter stature and wider frame. At around three or four years old, he’s full of energy but doesn’t mind taking it easy when it’s time to lay down and relax.

This super cute fellow enjoys the park and hiking. He can go up to 16 miles at once with minimal breaks!! He loves to chase the wake and bark at the beach.

Ace 3He adores fetch and soccer, and his favorite thing to do is to play with his tennis balls. If he could, he would play with them all day! He’s quite the goalie indoors and out. He’s food motivated but also independent which is part of what makes him so special.

House-trained and crate-trained, he can go without a potty-break for up to 4-5 hours. He loves people, and tolerates other dogs well, but will need a home with no cats.

His fur is super thick and needs a good de-shedding once a week, which he doesn’t mind. He’s an amazing dog and everyone who meets him always say how wonderful he is, and what a great companion he is. Ace loves kisses and attention – he’s a total crowd pleaser!

Ace 1Ace (SAS ID #14-16003) is living large 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 Ace, you may call the Shelter’s Animal Care Staff at 206-386-4294.

Jelly 2Meet Jelly!

Jelly is a beautiful 5 year old white and black Domestic Short Hair (DSH) cat with tabby markings on the black portions of her coat.

She has gorgeous green eyes, outlined in black.

Jelly 3She is a sweet girl who is playful. She is independent but typically will sit and/or sleep near or beside her people, and enjoys having her chin rubbed. Jelly is a gentle soul: friendly and easygoing. She is quiet with gentle meows, purps and soft purrs.

She is also a very clean kitty who has excellent litter box manners and uses her cardboard scratcher for her scratching.

Jelly 1Jelly is looking for her forever home. She would make an excellent cat for a first time pet owner, as well as one for an experienced pet owner alike.

Jelly (SAS ID #14-22048-1) is waiting patiently in foster care for her forever home. Please contact the Foster Care Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Abby & Phinn

Abby Phinn 1Meet Abby & Phinn

Phinn (male/ring-necked dove) and Abby (female/white dove) are the sweetest couple! These two spend their days cuddling in their nest and softly cooing.

Phinn is a true gentleman and dotes on Abby, regularly bringing her pieces of hay to add to their nest, and making sure she’s comfortable. You will be touched by the tenderness and love these two show for each other. Abby and Phinn are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.

Abby Phinn 3Abby and Phinn need an extra-large enclosure with a nesting basket and materials for nesting. As the result of an unfortunate accident, Abby’s beak is bent and will need regular beak trims to allow her to eat normally. These two do coo a lot, so they are looking for a home where their sweet noises will not be a problem for roommates or neighbors. (We find their cooing quite pleasant.)

Abby Phinn 2Doves are very gentle natured birds that are easy to care for. They’re quiet, smart and social, and they don’t bite or screech. It’s been said that they are the masters of the leisure arts – napping, flirting, sunbathing and nesting. Doves require a grain mix containing between 12-16% protein, pigeon grit and clean water (and would probably appreciate the occasional safflower seed or millet spray treat). Most doves also love greens and minced veggies.

If you think Abby and Phinn might be the right new friends for you, contact the Foster Care Hotline at (206) 684-0685 to arrange a meeting.

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 four 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.

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.

Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Slate

March 1st, 2015 by Laura Fonda

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.

MonicaIf you follow our Friday Seattle Animal Shelter pet-of-the-week posts, you may see a few familiar faces on Saturday at Mud Bay Uptown. The Adoption Center at Mud Bay is hosting a Cat and Critter Adoption event from noon to 3pm on Saturday, February 28th.

Mama CThe event will focus on cats, kittens, and critters (e.g. bunnies, reptiles, etc.), and some have been featured in the past on Queen Anne View, in our Friday SAS Pet of the Week posts.

The animals’ foster parents will be at the event to answer questions and provide even more information on the animals they’ve cared for while forever homes are sought.

BanskyAdoptable pets that may be at the Uptown Mud Bay Adoption Center include Bansky the bunny, Monica the kitty, Iggy Azalea the iguana and Mama C the bearded dragon (all pictured in this post).
