Watch Us Grow

If you love to "ohh and aww" over puppies and kittens this is the place for you! Each week the Center staff will add new photos and updates on a litter of puppies or kittens that are currently in foster care so you can “Watch Us Grow”.

In the Wee Hours of the Night

In the Wee Hours of the Night

In the wee hours of the night, eight tiny lives were welcomed into the world. Black, white and spots all over this litter of three girls and five boys are all healthy and thriving. Mama Cha Cha is being the best mom ever to her troupe of lil’ dancers whom have been named Rumba, Mambo, Fandango, Flamenco, Merengue, Diablada, Tango and MacAreana.

Let's Do a Little Cha-Cha!

Out of options Cha-Cha is grateful to be at the Pet Adoption Center. She was scheduled to be euthanized because of her condition. The condition of being an American PitBull Terrier and pregnant. Through our transfer program Cha-Cha is now residing in our Tiny Paws Nursery where she is monitored around the clock to ensure a safe delivery of her puppies.

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell

The Five D's have been adopted. It certainly is true bliss when we get to bid a fond farewell to lives that may have not been possible without our Tiny Paws Nursery and our dedicated fleet of foster parents.

All of those cute and cuddly kittens are romping and resting in their forever homes yet Mama Addison is still waiting to find hers. Addison loves bathing in sun beams, playing with her cattery friends and hasn't met a person she doesn't like. Her favorite pastime is batting toy mice and purring with delight! Come meet Addison today!

Time to Find Forever Homes

on Wednesday, 22 October 2014. Posted in Watch Us Grow

Time to Find Forever Homes

Now that the kittens have reached ten weeks of age it's time for spay/neuter surgery. After a brief recovery period they will be ready to find their forever homes. And don't forget about mama Addison she will need one too! We're grateful to our Foster Parents who offer their homes and hearts to ensure that underage puppies and kittens have the best chance at a long and healthy life.

Socialization Skills Continue

on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Watch Us Grow

Socialization Skills Continue

It's week nine and socialization skills continue, and there is no doubt that these are lively, active, kittens who will grow up all too soon to be adult cats. They can run, pounce, and leap, and can entertain themselves and foster parent observers endlessly. Growing up is hard work!

Kittens are now following mama Addison's lead in socializing with humans and are finding favorite toys and places to explore. Dalton is one of the most playful of the litter and loves turbo ball chasers.

 

Personalities Begin to Blossom

Personalities Begin to Blossom

Kittens are now seven weeks old, my how time flies.  Their health is being monitored by their foster mom who recently brought them to the Center to be weighed.  Along with growing their personalities are beginning to blossom with each of them become their own “purr-son”.  The kittens have also learned that affection is a good thing and are becoming more responsive to it and have moved into what is called the Exploration Stage of Growth.  Learn more about kittens and how they develop.

Five D's

Now that we know that we have three girls and two boys, it was time to name the clowder (litter of kittens).  Their foster mom decided on Dalton, Darcy, Demi, Derrick, Danica and can't wait to see their personalities bloom.

Addison gave birth to five healthy kittens and is being a very good mama.  Now what to name them?

Got a new mama for our Watch Us Grow.

Found homeless and pregnant by a  Good Samaritan, Addison relinquished to the Pet Adoption Center.   She is currently residing in comfort with foster parents while she awaits the arrival of her kittens.  How many do you think will arrive?  Our bets are on at least three.

The litter is gearing up for the spays, neuters, and adoptions!  In the meantime, it is non-stop playtime for the puppies.  Cria has a favorite teddy that she loves to carry around wherever she goes.

Favorite Meal

Favorite Meal

The puppies have all grown their baby teeth, and love to eat softened kibble and canned food... but their favorite meal is still Mama!

Gosling

Gosling

It turns out that lil’ Gosling is the cuddler of the group, and somewhat of a mama's boy.  He loves to roll over into the perfect position for a tummy rub!
