Waif Wednesday

Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: 

“Hey there! My name is Maddox and I’m a sweet fella looking for my forever home! I’m just over a year and a half old and I’m as sweet as can be! I came to Wayside when my last shelter ran out of space. It’s okay though! I know this is my last stop before I find a family to spend life with! I’m very friendly and I love people! I love giving kisses and getting belly rubs. I’m also pretty smart. I know “Sit” and I know that we can learn even more tricks and commands together. I can be a little jumpy when I’m excited so I’m looking for a family who is willing to put in the time and effort for training. I love spending time outside and I walk pretty well on a leash. I think it would be great to go for a run or a hike with you. After some exercise I’ll cuddle up right next to you. If you’ve got canine friends, I do ask that you bring them with you so I can meet them before going home. I just want to make sure we’re all a good fit for each other. If you’re looking for a sweet best friend to go through life with, look no further! I might just be the dog for you! I’ll be waiting!”

“Hello Friend, My name is Moxie! Life up until now, hasn’t been easy. You see, I was adopted from Wayside nearly 5 years ago as an adorable sweet little kitten. I loved my family so much, so when they decided to give me up I was completely heartbroken. Much to the dismay of the wonderful staff and volunteers at Wayside, I became visibly depressed, stopped eating, and really just gave up on life. Just when I thought I could no longer go on, one of the veterinarians decided to foster me. He scooped me up, hugged me close, and told me that everything would be all right. And you know what, he was right! He knew that somewhere in my deep sad eyes was a happy kitty that just needed some time and love to heal from my broken heart. I still miss my family, but his family taught me that love cures all, and I’m happy to be with them. As you can clearly see from my photos, I’m a darling brown and white tabby with a snuggly round face. I’m built for snuggles and cuddles, which I’m sure you’ll love during these cold winter months. I have free-roam of my foster families lower-level. I’ve found a safe hidey spot that I spend most of my time in. When my foster family comes down to see me, I happily leave my safe spot to follow them around and ask for attention. I’m a simple cat, that enjoys simple things. I am a bit independent, but I bond closely with my people and enjoy being near them. In my ideal home, I’d be the only cat. In my last home, there were three cats altogether. Sometimes we co-existed, but mostly we didn’t like sharing our things or the attention we got from our family. I’ll love you so much, you won’t ever need another kitty! I have met a friendly dog in my foster home. I gave him a good whap, and then went about my business. The dog was understanding, so we continued to live together just fine. I’ve also been around small children in my foster home. The little humans are very friendly, but they can also be fast and loud. I like getting pets from them, but will sometimes retreat to my hidey-hole for safety. My foster dad says I have wonderful house-manners! He loves that I use my litterbox so well, and that I keep my area nice and tidy. I love my foster family, but I’m ready to find a family of my very own. Someone(s) who will love me unconditionally. In return, I promise to be your very best friend for the rest of my days and love you with all that I am. I really hope you’ll call to meet me soon, I can’t wait to finally meet you!”

“Hi there. My name is Sissy and I am a 3 year old girl. My coat is all white, just like snow! I weigh about 46 pounds and am a pretty strong girl. I came to Wayside from another shelter when they ran out of room. The prior shelter thought I might be hard of hearing; the folks at Wayside are still trying to determine if that’s true. I am food and toy motivated and just a bundle of energy. I mostly know how to sit, but especially so if you have a treat in your hand! While I am full of energy, I also love to cuddle with people, enjoy snuggling on the couch and getting belly rubs. You should see my tail go when I am excited! I would love to meet you and anyone you have in your house, including your 4 legged children. It’d be pretty awesome if I could go home with you today! If you think I’m the right girl for you, please come see me today.”
