|Scottie and others need loving homes|
If you're on the lookout for a new pet for you or your family, look no further.
Whether you want a dog, a cat, or even a furry little friend to complete your home, think adoption first! There are hundreds of lovable pets just waiting for you to take them home in rescue leagues and shelters everywhere.
Check out these 10 pets available for adoption from the Broken Tail Rescue, below
Earl is the sweetest cat around and is estimated to be about 7 years old. He enjoys gazing out the window and sleeping at the foot of your bed. He loves nothing more than to get head and chin scratches and if you scratch his upper shoulders you’ll get to hear his nice low rumble of a purr that doesn't stop! Once you get Earl purring from pets and scratches he will usually beg for more! He is a great companion for someone who likes a cat who is always lounging near by, but not always on your lap. He is affectionate and when he wants your attention he will come to you, but also he takes much content in just being in the room with you. He also enjoys being brushed and the Furminator is his favorite.
Allie is kind of a diva in the best way possible. She is very curious- she likes to follow you around the house and prefers affection in small doses. She is on the smaller side with a beautiful, soft calico coat that barely sheds.
Olivia is a lively 5 year old black and white kitty who was found running around on snowbanks in Everett.
Olivia is a little shy and will thrive best in a safe, quiet environment. While she is more relaxed now in her foster home, Olivia remains cautious around strangers, and is the type of girl who enjoys petting on her own terms. In her spare time, Olivia enjoys exploring her cat tree, playing with feathers, and loves to practice her world-class biscuit-making skills.
Scottie is a black and white male who was surrendered with his sister, Sophie, and is very protective of her! Both are gentle cats who were initially shy in the Adoption Center. Now that they've moved to a homier environment with a foster mom, they are blossoming into happy, loving kitties. Scottie has turned into a lovebug and Sophie now rolls over for belly rubs!
Sophie is a black and white female who was surrendered with her brother, Scottie (also black and white).
Sophie and Scottie are gentle cats who were initially shy in the Adoption Center. Now that they've moved to a homier environment with a foster mom and a couple of resident cat siblings to show them the ropes, they are blossoming into happy, loving kitties who like to chase and play. Sophie also likes to roll over for belly rubs and Scottie is a lovebug.
My name is Sally Brown and my life is gonna be grand! I came to foster care last Monday! My foster mom is still getting to know me, but she said just like my namesake (Charlie Brown's sister!) I'm cute, lovable, and a quick learner, especially if there is cheese.
I’m so happy to meet you! My name is Mason and I am a happy, energetic 6 year old, 68 lb. neutered, goofy and loving male Redbone Coonhound mix. I am content to spend most of my days snoozing on my cot or lounging out in the sun, but I also love nightly back rubs and attention from my humans.
Do you like big mutts? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs. I am the biggest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right. I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. A quiet home with experienced "big dog" people and no young uns would be perfect. Because I was not treated kindly in the past, I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me.
My name is Sadie and I am about 5 years old. I’m a pittie mix (I think!) and really want to be your new best friend. I’m up to date on all my vaccinations, including heart worm and flea/tick and I’m already spayed.
I do OK with dog saavy cats and I’m ok with other dogs that live in my foster home. I'm still learning how to play but I have so much energy and really want to be on the trails, out running, or going on adventures! The couch might be my new favorite place when I'm in the house though!
Teddy is a 3-4 year old male Pomeranian mix. He weighs about 13 lbs. He came to rescue from a local animal control and is doing great in foster care! Teddy loves his foster mom and begs her for pets. It's never enough! When he was taken in by animal control he was really matted on his back end which caused some inflammation. Due to this (we believe) he has some sensitivity around his back end, though he has an anti-inflammatory injection on board which is helping. We are hoping that time, a healthy diet and some love in his foster home will help him to make progress. He is timid around other dogs, and due to his sensitivity we are going to require an adult only home. Teddy feels safe in his crate. He is a quiet dog and makes quite the easy keeper
