Today’s Featured Pet is Figaro!

Here is a little bit about Figaro from his foster:

“Figaro has a big, fluffy face, and a teeny-tiny kitten meow that he’s not afraid to share with the world!

Figaro was shy when he first arrived in his foster home, preferring to spend his time in a very quiet spot under a chair, but we soon discovered that this boy *loves* to be petted and likes fleece so much we’re pretty sure he thinks it’s his mama!

He still enjoys lounging in his hidey-spot, but also comes out for lap time. He’s very interested in the world beyond his room now, and is looking forward to a home where he has the run of the house.

Figaro is a great cuddler with an audible purr. He likes to lie on your lap or lounge against your leg on the couch, especially if there is a super-soft fleece for him to knead. Rub that fluffy face and head, stroke his back…he’ll even let you go in for a belly rub or two.

We have 3 resident cats. We did some scent swapping and some visual contact, and yesterday I allowed Figaro out of his own room for a few minutes with careful supervision. My cats mostly sat very still and watched him, and he explored carefully (but confidently). He sniffed everything and looked at the other cats, but nobody tried to interact directly.”

If you are interested in this A+ cuddle bug that has a teeny voice with a big head (and heart) then consider applying to adopt Figaro at t.ly/qE9a. Adoption fees are half off right now so hurry up and scoop this lovable boy up!

Today’s Featured Pet is Captain Chewie!

Captain Chewie or ChooChoo as some of us love to call him is the ABSOLUTE SWEETEST boy. Captain Chewie deserves a life filled with new adventures and being a rotten spoiled pup! So far with us, he’s gone on a car ride, which he napped through, taste-tested all of our treats (he likes salmon the best) and he’s played dress-up with us during picture day! He’s got a huge fan club here with our staff and volunteers but we would love for others to see why we love him so much. Chewie’s favorite activity is FETCH (he will bring the ball back and drop it at your feet) and he knows the cue for “sit” and “stay” but gets really excited about treats.

Right now, our Behavior Manager is working on his loose leash walking, teaching nose targets, “find it” and he even is responding to his name like a champ! This big love bug is super motivated and very smart so he should be a fun dog to continue to work with in a home despite his missing eye.

Did you think that was all? No! Chewy just keeps getting better! He got to meet a human baby, and guess what, he loved them! He gave gentle kisses and even laid down very nicely to allow for pets. He also spent the weekend in a foster home and they said he was a perfect house guest!

His story is a bit unclear on what lead him to looking the way he does but what we do know is that he was abandoned at an emergency vet needing immediate care. Captain Chewie needed his eye removed, he was skinny, he had little to no hair and his skin was very inflamed. They got him all taken care of there although his road to recovery will be a bit longer to notice big changes with his skin. The whole ordeal says a lot about Chewie and his demeanor because he has been the happiest boy with us and for all of his care he needs.

This happy boy is excited to see what a family means for him, so if you want to give him the best experience he could ever ask for, apply for Captain Chewy today: t.ly/gJt8

Today’s Featured Pet is Mike!

If you look real close at our kitty, MIKE, you’ll see a geometric diamond that points to the top of his forehead. Yes, he sure is a diamond in the rough!!! And, of course, DIAMONDS are a girl’s best friend! But let’s dig deeper…

This guy just loves to play and cuddle, which makes him the PURR-FECT KITTY. His Foster said that, ‘Mike is active, independent, and is definitely a CUDDLE BUG!’ What more could someone want? Don’t wait too long, this guy will be in high demand!

If interested in getting an additional cuddling kitty (like Mike), we do offer a BOGO on all kitties/cats.

To schedule a meet and greet with Mike or any of our animals, fill out the application on their profile: t.ly/XWl2
