|Wally and others are in need of 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 League, below
Meet Java, a friendly, energetic 5 year old pittie mix. Java is around 45 pounds and is a sweet, wiggly, playful girl. She is housebroken and crate trained and nondestructive when she's loose in the house.
Java loves people, especially kids! She pulls a bit on the leash out of excitement, but would probably quickly improve with a bit of practice in a front-attach harness.
Sherlock is about six years old and 19 pounds. He is a doggie who needs a special someone to love him as he is. Could you be his Watson?
Sherlock is a low key and easy dog to care for. However, like every animal, he does have his quirks. Read on to see if you could be Sherlock's partner-in-crime!
Wally is a 9 pound little chihuahua with a lot of love to give. Wally is house trained and does well in his crate while his foster parents are away from home. Wally loves playing with the other 4 dogs in the house above all else. He absolutely loves other dogs and will play endlessly!
Luna is a gentle giant. She is an 8-year-old Shepard Malamute mix and weighs 85lbs!
Luna is a simple girl that loves her tennis ball, walks, and company. She has lived with children, cats, and dogs in the past. She craves human attention and will stay close by at all times. Luna does not use a crate and prefers to have full access to her home. She is very well behaved so it is safe to let her roam when no one is home.
Meet Minnie! This cute little nugget is around 12 years old and weighs in at around 10 pounds. She is housebroken, crate trained, and knows how to use a doggie door.
My name is Benjamin and I'm a 10 year old long haired kitty in search of my forever home!
I'm a purr-machine...I love pets and curl up on the couch for naps! I'm an indoor cat, but enjoy watching the outside world from a cozy window (especially if there are birds flying around).
Lip is a sweet brown and white tabby boy, two years old, with a cute pink nose. Lip can be shy but shows great lovebug potential.
Onyx is a recent arrival who was found in Worcester. This handsome house panther can be a little grumpy at first but after all, this poor guy had a broken toe on one of his back feet that healed incorrectly, his ears are a little crumpled from ear mites/infections (but his ears are fine now), and he has a bb in his chest area that you might feel through his fur -- so life on the streets was rough for him. Luckily he was found and brought into a safer place and we will find him a forever home.
Max, Toby, Simba
Three adorable, sweet, loving male kittens ready for adoption. Through no fault of their own, they are FIV+.
Kittens that test positive for FIV probably do NOT have FIV! Kittens born to an FIV mother will inherit her antibodies, but not usually the virus. A mother cat with FIV will have FIV antibodies which are produced by her immune system in response to the virus. When pregnant, she will pass these antibodies to her kittens through the blood, but she will not pass the virus, which will not cross the placenta. The virus is also present in the mother's milk, and yet it is rare that the kittens actually get the virus from their mother (this also shows how hard it is to transmit the virus across the mucous membrane, indicating that the virus is NOT very contagious).Because the usual test for FIV actually looks for the antibodies and not the virus, a kitten from an FIV mother can get a positive test result without any virus being present.
Alliby (AKA Allie) is a wonderful little kitty. She is very curious and she loves to follow you around the house. She loves affection and is very friendly.
She is on the smaller side with a beautiful, soft calico coat that barely sheds.
