Waif Wednesday

Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Shelby, Misty, and Merle!

This is Shelby, a gorgeous four-year-old Shepard mix. She was brought to Wayside after her last shelter ran out of space for her. She’s okay with that though, because she is ready to settle into her forever home! Shelby can be timid at first, as she wants to get to know you first. She can get very nervous around little kids, so she politely asks that she go to a home without children under the age of five. She takes a bit to really warm up and sometimes small children don’t understand that. She also needs to be the only dog in the home, just so she can be your main focus! She is very smart, as she already knows the commands sit, down, come, shake, and stay! She is food motivated, so give her some yummy treats and she will learn even more with you. She does very well on walks, and enjoys them too! While she does prefer a calm, quiet home, she is crate trained and housebroken, which is a bonus! Doesn’t Shelby sound awesome? Come meet her today!

Learn more about Shelby here.

Meet Misty, a 6 month old girl with a beautiful medium-length coat. She came to Wayside Waifs when her previous shelter was out of space. Since being here, Misty has made many friends among the staff, volunteers, and other cats! She has made so many feline friends, that she would love if her future home has one or will adopt another friend with her. She has the softest fur, and is known to be quite a lap cat. She is a sweetheart, and loves to be affectionate. She is still a young kitten, so she would love playtime as well as cuddle time! Do you have a nice window for her to do some bird-watching at your house? Or some mouse toys or wand toys? She would love all of that! Come meet her today!

You can learn more about Misty here.

Here is Merle, a handsome, Retriever/lab mix looking for a home. He was brought to Wayside Waifs after his last shelter ran out of space for him. Because of this, he is ready to move on to a different setting, like a forever home! Maybe that home can be with you! He is a friendly guy who is glad to meet any new person! Bring the whole family out, including furry friends, when you come say hi. He is a smart boy and loves to learn new things. He knows the command sit, but present him with a yummy treat and he is ready to learn more. He also enjoys going on walks and romping around. He is ready to meet his forever family, and hopefully that is you! Come meet him today.

You can learn more about Merle here.

You can visit all of our furry friends during our adoption hours!

Waif Wednesday!

Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Martin, Clyde & Bonnie, and Davie!

Clyde(and Bonnie):

Davie:

Martin

6 months
Male
American Bulldog / Mix

Hi there, I’m Martin!  I’m a sweet and adorable pup, just searching for a home and family that I can call my very own.  At just 6 months old, I’m still a puppy, so everyone tells me I should have been adopted quickly.  But it’s taking me longer than most dogs to find my forever family.  Perhaps that’s because I’m sort of quirky and different.  I march to the beat of my own drummer.  And I need a special family who will like that about me and who will love me for who I am.

I’m a handsome, 35 pound American Bulldog mix.  I was transferred to Wayside from a rural rescue group when I was only a few months old, so I feel like I’ve spent way too much of my young life in a shelter.  Once I got settled in at Wayside, people started noticing that I wasn’t acting like most puppies.  I kept to myself and my bow legs looked sort of silly when I walked.  And then people wondered if I might be hearing or seeing impaired.  Well, I might not be perfect, but the docs tell me that my health is just fine.  Sure, I might not be just like other dogs, but once we bond and I get comfortable and relaxed with you, I will make a wonderful companion!

I’d love a quiet and calm home where I can feel safe and cozy.  I hope you will be patient and understanding with me.  I got along just great with the cats in my foster home, so that’s fine with me if you have one of those!  And I enjoy doggie playgroups at Wayside, where it’s fun to watch me run and play.  If you have another dog, I’d love to meet them before we go home together, to make sure we’re a good match for each other.  And I will need a home without kids under the age of at least 5 and preferably 10.  I can be protective of my food, so I’ll need a safe and peaceful place to eat my meals, away from people and other animals.  It’s not a big deal, but kids don’t always understand how to give me my space.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming.  You know you’re different and you’re not sure how to fit in.  It all came together for me though when my foster mom helped me to understand that it’s OK to be different and unique.  So instead of trying to be like all the other dogs, I’ve decided to just be me.  I’m a character.  And I’m silly and sweet and sometimes awkward and quirky.  But I’ll love you in my own way and I’ll accept you just the way you are, too.  I can’t wait to share my life with you and finally be home.

Love, Martin

Adoption fee: $25

Clyde & Bonnie

8 months
Male & Female
Domestic Shorthair

**Bonnie and Clyde are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.**

Hello there.  I’m Clyde.  I’m a handsome young cat and ready for my real home.  I’ve been staying in foster with my sister, Bonnie.  People say we’re “special needs,” but I’m not really sure what that means, so I’ll just tell you about myself.

I’m a lovely white kitty, and I have a special need to be with people but not on people.  There’s such a thing as too close, and anyway Bonnie always claims the lap first.  I’m happy to sit nearby, get petted, and hang out with everybody else.  I like to watch the goings on and just might get sucked into a series with you.  Some things on TV are hard to resist.  If you want to talk, I’m a good listener.  You can tell me anything, and I’ll keep it to myself.  Bonnie might try to give you unwanted advice.

I also have a special need to run and play, with Bonnie or you.  People smile when they see me run.  They say I look like a white bunny.  I don’t see it, but that’s what they say.  I also like to play with toys like string toys, mice, red dots, and tunnels.  The possibilities are endless!

Something kind of personal you might want to know is if I use the litterbox.  I do, and I have a special need to keep it neat and tidy.  I also use my scratch pad and pole.  I’m a good kitty and an easy kitty.  I would love to sleep in your bed at your feet at night.  Bonnie wants to sleep at your head and may ease you off your pillow.  I won’t cause any trouble like that.

One thing I have noticed is that the other cats in the foster home have straight front legs and tails, while Bonnie’s and mine are crooked.  Life on straight legs doesn’t seem any more difficult than life on twisted legs.  We all do what we need to do, so I can’t imagine there is anything special there.  I guess you could ask the vets about me if you want to know more.

Anyway, if you are looking for a good companion who could also double as a white bunny, I’m your guy!  Oh, and Bonnie comes with me as a bonus, in case you need a lap warmer.

 

Adoption fee: $130

Davie

3 years
Male
Labrador Retriever / Mix

Did you guys know that the name Davie has a Hebrew origin and means cherished and beloved? Yep. That’s me! All my friends at Wayside definitely would describe me as cherished and beloved, true to my namesake!

So, now that you know my name Davie let me tell you a bit more about myself. I’m a 3 year-old black lab mix that came from a hoarding situation in Texas. I can be timid sometimes, but I’m sure with trust, love and patience, I’ll be well on my way to being the most amazing companion I can be. I’m very food and toy motivated, and this will definitely help me and my new owner bond, and it will help me to learn ALL THE THINGS!

I love affection and attention. Once I warm up to you, I’m a very sweet and loveable guy, seriously, SO incredibly loveable! I definitely think I could be a snuggler extraordinaire. I’d also love to be your running, hiking, walking and outdoor adventure buddy. Exercise is much needed to keep my mind and body healthy! I have pretty good leash manners, and know with more practice they’ll be close to perfect.

There are a few things that I need in my new home to help me be amazing. Due to my timidness, it’d be best if I went to a home with children over the age of 5. Sometimes loud noises and new things are initimidating. Additionally, I need to be the only pet in your home, but I know that I have enough love and cuddles to give that you’ll be perfectly content with just me.

So, what do you say? Come on out to meet me, I’ll be waiting!

Adoption fee: $50

Waif Wednesday

It’s time to meet our Waifs of the Week; Captain Jack, Thomas, and Misha!

**Captain Jack is currently staying in a foster home.  If you’d like to schedule a time to meet him, please contact Wayside Adoptions at (816)986-4426. Thanks!**

This is the lovely Captain Jack, a handsome three year old Terrier mix. He is cute and such a character!  His journey has been a challenging one, but he has made some real progress. He will still need help with that journey, but he is ready to find that perfect family! Wayside Waifs is unsure of his full past, but we can tell he has experienced some unfriendly situations, but he is building his trust! Jack is looking for a patient home with people who understand his needs. He was originally brought to Wayside Waifs because he was wandering the streets of Grandview, Missouri, and animal control picked him up. He was very scared and anxious when he first arrived. Based on his past, Jack decided he would love a nice family that understands his quirks and challenges, and will work through them with him. He has really hit the jackpot here as well, because he was put into foster care to get out of the daily stresses of shelter life. He is so lucky, that he had TWO foster homes! His  foster families love him so much, despite the fact that he can be ornery at times.  They stay calm and patient with him and they praise him when he is a good boy, so that he learns what is expected of him as he gains confidence at the same time. He is not fully housebroken yet, but he is making excellent strides in learning and keeping up with each family’s schedules. Jack can be a talented escape artist, but Foster mom has crated him along with another dog, and having company really made him feel better. He sleeps in the human’s bed or his own bed undisturbed, quiet as a mouse. He loves to ride in the car, and snuggle with you! He is also really good at entertaining himself with toys. He really enjoys being in the kitchen when Foster Mom is cooking, because she is fun to watch, and maybe he can get a snack! Once he warms up to someone, he becomes their best friend. He is an excellent walking companion, and will walk right by your side. He loves to greet the other dogs with a bark, or “Hello!” Because of his escape artist tendencies, he does need to be leashed at all times when he is outside. He is able to chew, dig, and wiggle out of almost anything, so he does like to keep you on your toes! Definitely keep an eye out for him when he is outside. He is still learning what a true home life is like, so he gets a little curious and sniffs his way into things he should not. However, once he bonds with you and your family, he will not want to escape as much. He just needs that initial time to learn that he can trust you! He is very nice to all the dogs he meets, and he has learned from them as well! He does so well with them, he would prefer a canine companion in his forever home. He even does well with cats! Because of his timidness, kids tend to intimidate him. He asks that he goes to a home without kids under the age of twelve. Captain Jack is truly sweet as can be, and he has learned a lot from both of his foster homes, and being at Wayside Waifs in general. He has blossomed into a loving dog, and we are so happy with his progress, and cannot wait to see him continue to grow. Call our Adoptions team and ask for Captain Jack, and you will never regret it!

You can learn more about Captain Jack here.

Please welcome Thomas, a handsome five year old Domestic Shorthair mix. He was originally surrendered to Wayside Waifs as his old owners had a change in lifestyle. That is okay though, because Thomas is ready to find his people-and that might just be you! Thomas has some striking features, such as the nice blue-grey coat and pink nose. He was a little timid when he first came to Wayside Waifs, but he has made some friends with the staff and volunteers, and quickly became a favorite. Thomas is all about being with you all the time, and he would make a great sidekick! He also loves to talk with people, so he would love to have a great listener in the family. Honestly, Thomas is fantastic, and is ready to settle into that forever family lifestyle, and he hopes it is with you! Come check him out!

Learn more about Thomas here. He also has a video, which you can watch here.

Meet Misha, a pretty eleven month old American Pit Bull Terrier mix. She was originally brought to Wayside Waifs after she was picked up as a stray, wandering the streets alone. That is just fine, because she is ready to find her people! She has some wonderful brown and white markings, and is a slim forty pounds. She knows several commands such as sit, down, come, shake and roll over. Roll over happens to be her favorite command….because that means she can get a belly rub out of it too! Belly rubs are the best!!! Misha is a leaner; meaning she loves to be against you and just sit next to you. She is a social butterfly and loves meeting new people. She would be a great addition to your family! She does ask that you bring in all your children and canine friends to meet her-to make sure you are the right fit! When visiting our adoptions campus, please ask for Misha!

You can learn more about Misha here.

You can meet all of our wonderful animals, including our Waifs of the Week, during our adoption hours! Check out our Black Friday special here!

Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Wanda, Myrtle, and Altair!

This is Wanda, a beautiful four year old Beagle mix. She was originally transferred to Wayside Waifs from her previous shelter after they ran out of space for her. Not to worry, because she is so looking forward to finding her forever home, and that home just might be yours! Wanda is a happy, energetic girl, so she will do best in a home that can play and go on regular walks and runs! She is quickly becoming a staff and volunteer favorite because of how expressive she is. She is also super friendly and affectionate, so you get the best of both worlds. She has not learned any basic obedience yet, but she is ready to! She is treat motivated, so present her with yummy treats and she will know basic commands in no time! She has met other dogs at Wayside, and she did okay. She can try and lead the playing and socializing, so she may need a dog that matches her play style. If you have any other dogs at home, it would be great if you could bring them along to meet her, to make sure they are a good pair!  In fact, bring the whole family so they can all get acquainted. She is ready to go home, and she hopes it is with you!

You can learn more about Wanda here.

Please welcome Myrtle, a gorgeous ten year old Domestic Shorthair mix. Myrtle is experienced in life, and is a sweet and cuddly cat. She was originally transferred to Wayside Waifs after her previous shelter ran out of space for her. That is just fine, because she is ready to find her forever home, and maybe that is with you! Her Felinality rating is Party Animal, in other words, she is the life of the party! She loves to be around people, and seeks out attention and love! She enjoys your company best, but she also loves to play with any cat toy. Honestly, it is the best of both worlds if she can play with you! When coming to Wayside to visit Myrtle, she is in Kitty City, with her friend Pringles! Front and center, you will not be able to miss her!

Learn more about Myrtle here.

Meet Altair, a handsome, seven year old Australian Shepherd mix looking for a place to call his own. He was originally transferred to Wayside Waifs after his previous shelter ran out of space for him. That is okay though, because he has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite here, and is enjoying his time before he finds his forever home! He was quickly adopted out, but brought back because they did not have a safe yard for him to romp in. They did provide some wonderful information on Altair though! He is an easy-going and social guy. His favorite thing is to hang out with humans of any kind. He loves long walks, and is an excellent walker with his leash! He enjoys staying fit after all! He is also really smart, so he is ready to learn new things with you. He is treat motivated, so present him with yummy treats and he will be trained in no time. After a play session, he would love to cool down with snuggle time. Honestly, Altair is a lovable guy with a big heart. When you visit Wayside, ask for the sweet Altair, and you will not be disappointed!

Learn more about Altair here.

It’s time to meet our Waifs of the Week: Perdita, Miss Hemingway, and Ginger!

Meet Perdita, a beautiful three year old Terrier mix. She is forty pounds of pure love! She is very excitable and friendly, but she may come on a little strong! She is just ready to meet all the people. We should also mention she has a very active tail-meaning she is excited and loves to show her enthusiasm. She originally came to Wayside as a stray, so she is eager to learn what it is like to be in a home. Perdita will do best in a home that has children over the age of five, and that has no other canine companions. She is ready to learn basic obedience with you, and is a smart girl! She can be a little anxious in new environments based on her past, so having a calm home at first will be a huge benefit. She loves to be a cuddle bug! She will even lean on you and sit by you, just to be close! If you think you would be a great match, please come see her today.

You can learn more about her here.

This is Miss Hemingway, a gorgeous orange tabby that is two years old. She was originally brought to Wayside as a stray, but she is more than okay with that because she is able to find her forever home here! She loves to be around people, and will reward you with head-butts. She is a purr machine, just because she wants you to know how happy she is. She is also very confident and loves to explore. Miss Hemingway has become a master of free-roaming in our sunroom. She loves to bird-watch, and is extremely playful. She enjoys wand toys and fake mice as well! One of her special quirks is that both of her front paws have and extra toe-meaning extra love to give! She is ready to find her family, and maybe that is with you!

You can learn more about her here.

Here is Ginger, a stunning Labrador Retriever mix and almost a year old. She is roughly 30 pounds full of energy and love. She already knows sit and come, but is ready to learn more from her new family! Because Ginger is pretty active, she asks that she goes to a home without children under the age of 5. She does not want to accidentally knock anyone down! She also would prefer a home without cats and other small animals. Ginger has met dogs before, but she asks that you bring in any and all dogs you have so she can see if they are a perfect fit! She is basically a star athlete, as she can jump a five foot fence. That being said, she will need supervision outside and will need physical and mental stimulation. She is not a huge fan of the crate, so she would prefer not to use one. She is super obsessed with squirrels, as she likes to watch them intently and stare at them when she spots one. It sure is fun to be outside! There is so much to see. Ginger is ready to meet you, are you ready to meet her?

Meet Kasey, a handsome three year old Domestic Shorthair. Kasey originally came to Wayside as a stray, and is now living the good life at our shelter. He’s friendly, affectionate, and gives great headbutts. Sometimes he wants to give you a pet instead! When he had his Felineality assessment, they told him he was a Personal Assistant. That means he is relatively brave in new situations, and is ready to be your new sidekick and informant. Whether you are doing chores, cheering for the Chiefs or just chillaxing, he will be right by your side, ready to lend a striped paw. Are you in?

You can learn more about him here.

Here’s Mickey, a dashing two year old Chinese Star-Pei mix! He is a handsome guy with a very cute pout. Well, that’s what the people here say at least. He was originally brought to Wayside after his last shelter ran out of space for him. That is okay though, because he is enjoying his time with us, and vice versa! Mickey is ready to find that paw-fect family for his needs. Think that might be you? He is really friendly, and asks that you bring the whole family to meet him, dogs included. He wants to make sure you all are a perfect match. Something he is really good at is learning new things. He already knows the commands sit, come, and shake! He is treat motivated, so present a yummy treat and he is ready to learn. Some of his other favorite activities include romping around a yard and taking long walks. His ideal end to a day is sitting with you and watching television shows. He is a paw-some dog who is so ready to give you all of his love. Come by soon to see if he is the right fit for your family!

You can learn more about him here. He also has a video, which you can view here.

Waif Wednesday

It’s time to meet our Waifs of the Week; Sandee, Snowball and Snowflake, and Talbot!

This happy girl is Sandee, a cute one-year-old Pug mix. She was originally brought to Wayside after her previous shelter ran out of space for her. That is just fine, because she is ready to find her forever home. Maybe it is with you! As you can probably tell, she is a very happy dog! She enjoys exercise, and really just being active. She probably likes running around and playing with you best! She is energetic and jumpy, so she would definitely benefit from Basic Obedience training. She is ready to learn, but she just needs a teacher! It is recommended that Sandee goes to a home without children under the age of five, just because she does not want to either scare or hurt them accidentally. One great thing about her is she is independent, but she also loves to cuddle! You get the best of both worlds. She has met dogs at Wayside, and she did play a little, but she still asks that you bring in your furry friends to meet her, just so we can make sure they can be buddies! She takes my food very seriously, so she just asks that she has a safe place to eat away from other animals and people. A girl just needs her privacy sometimes! Ask for Sandee, and you will not be disappointed!

You can learn more about her here.

Meet our bonded pair of bunnies, Snowball and Snowflake! They are nine months old, and two peas in a pod. They are a true bonded pair, so they absolutely must go home together. They are brothers who love each other too much to be separated. They were transferred here from a local shelter after they ran out of space for them, but not to worry! They are excited to be at Wayside Waifs to find their forever home. They are very social, and they enjoy just being with people. If you come into their room, they immediately want to say hello and interact with you! They eat all their veggies, and take them gently out of your hand. They love their free-roaming time, so they would love a space in your home they could have to explore in, at least a little bit during the day. They have been known to crawl into a lap, so be prepared for bunny snuggles! If you see them hanging out in the Small Mammals room at Wayside, please come visit them! They would love to meet you, and hopefully come home with you!

Learn more about them here. They also have a video, which you can view here.

Please welcome Talbot, a spunky little two-year-old Terrier mix. He was originally transferred to Wayside Waifs when they rescued him from a hoarding situation, but that is okay. He knows his forever home is waiting for him, and maybe that is with you! At first, he can be a little timid, but if you go slow with him, he will quickly warm up to you. He has met other dogs here, and they seem okay, but please bring in your furry friends so we can make sure you all work together well! He was adopted, but returned because his owner was allergic to him, but it was a positive experience! They provided wonderful notes about what he is like in a home. For example, he is crate trained and housebroken! They taught him fun commands like Sit, Stay, and even Kennel. He enjoyed learning those, and would be extremely happy if he could continue his training! He asks that you bring your whole family in to meet him, because we want to make sure you all are a perfect fit! He even got comfortable with learning how to walk on a leash!  Come out to Wayside and ask for Talbot, and you will not be disappointed.

Waif Wednesday

Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Bridgette, Starla, and Ralphie! 

Meet Bridgette, a gorgeous two year old Catahoula Leopard dog. Bridgette was transferred to Wayside after her last shelter ran out of space for her. That is okay though, because she is searching for her forever home! Think that family could be you? She is super friendly, but she would do best in a home without small children. She just does not want to accidentally hurt anyone! She loves being active, and thinks walks are just amazing. She is also looking for someone to teach her the ropes of life! Keeping your body and mind in shape are equally important! If Bridgette seems like a good candidate, come visit her today.

You can learn more about Bridgette here. She also has a video, which you can view here.

This is Starla, a petite nine month old Domestic Shorthair mix. She has gorgeous markings, and a wonderful, soft coat. She originally came to Wayside as a stray, wandering the streets. Because of her past, she is confident, brave, and friendly! While she was independent for so long, she is ready for an indoor lifestyle, complete with regular food and water, love, and attention! Is that not enough to persuade you? Her favorite toy is a feather wand, and she loves to play either by herself, or with people! That can be tons of fun for both of you! Does Starla sound like the one?

You can learn more about Starla here.

This is Ralphie, a handsome three year old American Staffordshire mix. He was graciously brought to Wayside by a Good Samaritan, who saw him running along the highway. Thank goodness! He is ready to find his people now! Ralphie is a sweet, loving boy, and believe it or not, he is a lap dog! Because of his past, he is a little wary of dogs, so he would prefer a home where he is your only dog. He loves walks, and he is actually a great running partner. He is ready to be trained by a new family, and he is toy and treat motivated, so he is eager to please! With his markings, you also will probably get compliments on how sweet and cute your dog is. Do you think Ralphie is your perfect match?

Learn more about Ralphie here.

Waif Wednesday

Our hearts are with the Hurricane victims, and the victims of the Las Vegas incident. We hope this post can bring a little bit of light in times of sadness. And with that, please welcome this week’s Waifs: Selma, Brasi, and Tigger. 

This is Selma, a gorgeous one year old Domestic Shorthair. She has wonderful brown and black markings, true to the Tabby name! Selma came to Wayside as a pregnant stray, thankful for a Good Samaritan who brought her in. Her kitten-rearing days are behind her now, and she is ready to be the baby of the family! She is a sweet, affectionate girl, and enjoys exploring new places. She likes spending time with you too of course! She is also a very nice lap kitty. Her Felinality here is Personal Assistant, meaning she is people-oriented, but she is a moderately brave girl in new situations. She is ready to assist you in anything you need, as long as you want a helper. Are you cooking, cleaning, or watching a Royals game? She’s ready to be there with you! Sound like a good deal to you? It sure does to her!

Learn more about Selma here. She also has a video, which you can view here. Selma also can do agility courses! See her in action in the following links: 815499CB-3A29-4F4B-AA22-ED77D8AEB5DD   E42D286F-B0C1-4C1B-8CB8-8A3C863DAD1C

Meet Brasi, a fun two year old Staffordshire Terrier mix. At fifty-two pounds, this guy is nice and energetic! Do not let that serious mug fool you…he is a happy boy who loves his fair share of treats and toys! He is a strong boy, so he would do best in a home without children under the age of five. He doesn’t want to accidentally hurt anyone! He already knows the commands sit and speak, but he is very eager to learn more from you. He is very expressive, and will let you know what he is thinking. If you think he’d be a good match for you, please come see him today. He is ready to meet his peeps!

Learn more about Brasi here.

Here is Tigger, a stunning four year old Domestic Medium Hair. He has gorgeous red markings, and long white whiskers! While he is not as bouncy, he is ready to be the sweetest Tigger for you! He is ready to find his forever family. His Felinality here is Leader of the Band, meaning he is a confident dude. He is ready to explore the world, with some cuddling time in-between. He is a purr machine, so make sure to give him plenty of pets! He also enjoys many toys, and can play with you or by himself, but he wants that time with you more! He is FIV positive, but can live the life of a normal cat, just with extra precaution. He can get sick more than other cats, but if he has regular visits to the vet, it will be like he never had it! He really is a sweet guy, and you should take a chance on Tigger! Come meet him today.

Learn more about Tigger here.
