Help Us Find Lewis His Forever Home

Lewis At Wayside Waifs, we have over 300 animals in our care that need a home, and this week we would like to spotlight one. What makes this Waif so sweet? Well, just look at that smile. Lewis is a two-year-old Pit Bull-Terrier mix and he is about as amiable as they come. You can just see the hope in Lewis’ eyes. You see, Lewis was brought in from the streets with his sister, who was later picked up by their former owner. Lewis, however, was left behind and remains waiting for his forever home. So, ready to learn what makes Lewis so special?

Why We Love Lewis:

Hopeful

Despite Lewis’ devastating abandonment, he remains one of the most hopeful foster dogs in the shelter. Since Lewis knows what it was like to have a home, he has been eagerly waiting to find a new, permanent one with a loving family who will never leave him behind. His hopeful attitude is one of the many things that makes Lewis such a heartbreaker.

Good-natured

Lewis is one affable pup. He is also obedient, house-trained, and eager-to-please. The result is one happy-go-lucky pooch. And did we mention Lewis loves to go walking. His leash-side manner is excellent, so he looks forward to going on lots of walks with his future owners.

Family-friendly

Since Lewis came from a home, he knows what it is like to be part of the family and he just can’t wait to settle back in with a new, permanent one. Growing up with a sister, Lewis plays well with other dogs and would really enjoy having another live-in canine companion. Children are great, too; however, he prefers big kids who are over the age of five. Sometimes Lewis gets anxious around unexpected movement, so he needs a family who speaks softly to him and is conscientious of his occasional anxiety.

Visit Lewis Today

If this fun-loving dog seems like he would be a good fit for your family, pay him a visit. Lewis is hopeful he will be united for his forever owner soon, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to bring him home.

Meet Miss Monroe

MonroeIf you are looking for the purrrfect cat companion, you must meet one of our star pets. Sometimes the sweetest of animals are overlooked, which is exactly what has happened to this adorable, little cat. Wayside Waifs is home to a number of adoring, adoptable pets, one of which is Miss Monroe. Although this black-haired feline doesn’t have the blonde tresses of Marilyn Monroe herself, she certainly packs a celebrity-caliber personality. If you want to learn more about our latest starlet who is available for adoption, you don’t have to make a trek to Hollywood.  Our very own animal shelter is proud to house Miss Monroe.

A Behind-the-scenes Look 

So, what do you need to know about Miss Monroe? Well, for starters she has A-list looks that kill. Monroe sports a full, black coat that is as soft and fluffy as it looks in pictures. However, what makes Monroe a true star are her twinkling eyes. Elizabeth Taylor may have had violet eyes, but Monroe has ones that are equally glamorous. Her golden stare is a reflection of her heart of gold. Monroe can be a bit standoffish and nippy with strangers, but it is only because –in true celebrity nature—she has strong ideas about who her forever owner should be. You see, she is looking for a true Hollywood ending…preferably one with a warm, loving home, a bowl of cat food, and some snuggles – at her discretion, of course.

Other things you need to know about Monroe? Well, given her posh personality, it should be no surprise to learn she is house trained. Monroe is also two years old, so she is the perfect companion for someone with more mature needs. Because Monroe has been with us for so long, her adoption fees have been waived.

If you would like to meet Miss Monroe, please contact Wayside Waifs – we provide red-carpet access for all interested parties.

To interact with Monroe, be sure to visit our animal shelter; Monroe looks forward to making your acquaintance.

Help Our Foster Dogs in Need

 Although the holiday season has come and gone, the season of giving does not have to end. At Wayside Waifs, we have foster dogs that are in need of finding a “forever home.” If you have room in your heart and home this New Year, our adoptable foster dogs would love nothing more than to become a permanent resident in a stable, loving home. Think this sounds like a good fit? Meet a couple of our sweetest Waifs that are currently in foster care.

Harley

Harley

Meet Harley, our three-year-old, Shepard mix, currently in foster care. Sometimes pictures really do say it all. And, in this instance, that could not ring more true. Harley’s gentle eyes, genuine smile, and shiny fur coat are only a few of his many redeeming qualities. They always say, “dog is man’s best friend,” and in Harley’s case, the feeling is mutual.

Harley loves his people, car rides, and playing outside. Simply put: He is a lover. Because of his sunny disposition, he would love nothing more than to find a family he could forever call his own.  However, before adopting this sweet-natured pooch, it is important you know one thing about Harley. Left alone, Harley sometimes cries for human interaction, something that results from his separation anxiety condition. Because of this, Harley needs an adoption family who is loving and patient.

 

If you would like to learn more about Harley, please call (816) 986-4426.

HarrietHarriet

Our adoption dog Harriet has a personality that matches her adorable name. This nine-month-old American Bulldog is 100 percent sweet. Her angelic eyes really do say it all. Harriet loves to cuddle, play, and sometimes do a little unwanted chewing. Not to worry, though. Because of Harriet’s young age and desire to please her people, she is highly trainable. The secret to success in a permanent home? Patience.

Want to meet Harriet? For more information, call (816) 986-4426.
