*MICHAH IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CALL WILLOW AT 815-351-0201 IF INTERESTED IN HER ADOPTION*

Hello! My lovely cat Michah (pronounced Micah just with an extra h) is needing to find his forever home. Due to some issues between animals and extensive attempts to make him feel comfortable at home over the past year I have made the very hard decision that he needs a different home environment. Before me his owner was an older woman who he adored but unfortunately she could no longer care for him. Michah is a handsome siamese cat that is approximately 7 years old (rough estimate). He loves guided play with his favorite toy and to be pet while he cuddles up to you. 

If you are interested please contact me! My cellphone is 815-351-0201 🙂 Much more details below. Feel free to share if you know someone who might be a good fit!

Michah’s Personality

  • Very calm

  • Loving

  • Talkative (haha)

  • Sweet and gentle

Michah’s ideal home

  • Quieter home without other dogs/cats

  • Owner who is home often and wants a companion to be around

  • Is able to get lots of attention including pets and has the ability to play with him

  • Someone who does not mind a Siamese talkativeness

Michah’s medical notes

  • Up to date on vaccines (needs a rabies booster in September)

  • Recent vet visit with blood work that all seems good

  • Has some GI issues which requires a specific food to prevent constipation and vomiting

  • Overall healthy 🙂

  • He has a vet that has helped through the stomach issues. He also is on a health plan at this vet that has been paid for the next year which gets him discounted visits and testing. 

Michah’s included amenities

  • Litter box (I have 2 so he could come with both!)

  • Litter box mat

  • Brush

  • Cling on window ledge so he can sunbathe

  • His favorite toys

  • His prescription food (a month’s worth so you have time to order more!)

  • Bowls

  • Blanket with his scent

  • Cat tree (optional!)

  • Vet service – discounted visits, tests, and whatnot for the next year

Gus

*GUS IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT HOLLY AT genericholly@gmail.com IF INTERESTED IN HIS ADOPTION*

Meet Gus. He’s a neutered male. His exact age is unknown but my vet estimated him at right around a year old when I took him in for an exam last month. My vet says he’s in good health, no FIV, no parasites, and he’s now at a healthy weight thanks to a better diet and lots of treats.
 
He came to me via a neighborhood cat person, who in turn got him from someone living in one of the nearby camps who said they “found” him on the street. He had no chip or collar. She took him to the Feral Cat Coalition to be neutered and cleaned up but it was pretty obvious that he hadn’t been a street cat his whole life and he seemed to like people. So she decided to try and find him a home rather than just sending him back to the street life, and since I had just lost my elderly cat I happened to be in a position to take him in as a “foster and we’ll see how it goes.”
 
He’s a lovely floofy boy with a magnificent tail and a wonderful purr. He’s got lots of energy and he loves toys – his favorite is a rainbow streamer on a stick. He enjoys watching squirrels out my front window and getting ear scratches. He needs work on manners (I’m working on redirecting him when his play gets too bitey) but I think some of that will just come too with age and more people contact. He’s not a lap cat really but he loves to be near me and give him head butts while I work. He’s very curious about whatever I’m doing and will frequently make appearances on my work Zoom calls.
 
Unfortunately, he and my other cat just don’t get along. I introduced them gradually but it just hasn’t gone well – they’re fine as long as one of them is in a carrier, but if one of them is not contained it immediately turns into a  fight. Beaker spent some time as a street cat as well, and it’s almost as though they activate each other’s need to fight over turf. They’re both friendly, personable cats on their own, but I think it’s time to find Gus a more compatible home.
 
It’s possible he might do best in a single cat household – but I think it’s not impossible that he’d be okay in a house with other cats that have the right temperament. I don’t think he’d be a good fit for a household with small children but an older child that respects his boundaries would probably be okay. 
 
If you’re interested in meeting him, please get in touch at genericholly@gmail.com.

Seeking the right home for my dog “Goose.” He’s a well trained 4 year old Labradoodle. He’s a mellow guy and will sleep next to you on the couch or floor for most of the day. He does like to cuddle and will fall asleep with his head on your lap or gleefully sleep in your bed if that’s allowed. I don’t let him in my bed so no pressure there, but friends do and he loves it. Goose does weigh about 80 lbs, so he’s on the large side. He’s 3/4 poodle 1/4 lab (F1B), neutered, not a chewer or digger, is well house trained, he is trained to only poop in one gravel area behind my house and not on the lawn (so that’s an options for others), he’s also trained to pull you on a skateboard if you are crazy in the same way I am… thought that’s kind of an experts only situation:)
 
He does sometimes pull the leash on walks, but is a quick learner when it comes to training.
 
 He is very interested in cats but is not used to them since I do not have one and strangely none of my friends do either. I don’t think a house with a cat would be ideal. He loves the dogs he knows well but depending on the dog, he needs to meet new dogs slowly. He loves to play fetch. He’s also very good off leash on hikes. He is used to road trips, camping, hiking, etc… he’s been everywhere with me.
 
I’m not open to him living anywhere without a yard or property, or with anyone who’s work would leave him alone 9-5, sorry! He would do well with a family with kids above age 12 or so (he is a lot of klutzy excitable dog for the very little ones). He does do fine at home alone, I can leave him for 12 hours, I just rarely ever do that because it’s probably a bummer for him and I assume he really has to pee… A family or couple would be good, with a yard or property, or someone really devoted to dogs.
 
Goose had a professional assessment from a dog trainer today and this is what she said.
 
“I think Goose would do best in a home with no other dogs or a very confident female dog without fear or guarding issues. I would say no cats and children 12 and up. I think that the environment you’re looking for should be supportive to him not practicing barrier reactivity so watch for big windows and fences without visual barriers that are along spots with heavy foot traffic. I think someone who likes to hike and someone who has the means and the interest in continuing gooses training specifically focusing on his arousal/ reactivity while on leash and initially when greeting dogs. I would recommend in lieu of an adoption fee you request that the new owner complete two or three private training sessions.
 
He just needs the right environment to be happy and I can’t provide it. Basically he gets very excited and comes in a hot with new dogs, especially on leash. He does some resource guarding and barrier aggression (barking through fences). I’ll give anyone with interest lots more info.
 
My life has become extremely complicated with the pandemic closing my biz, illness in my family, and other complications that are not about Goose. I will not have the stability in the next few years to care for him and it’s not fair to him. This guy has been very well loved as I’ve had him since he was a pup and now my life has changed in ways that I need to embrace. It’s heartbreaking to try to find him another family but after agonizing about it for ages it’s finally time. I won’t be able to give him the home that he needs for years to come.
 
Please reach out or forward this to a friend if it sounds appealing. He could make someone very happy and be a great companion. Please let me know a bit about yourself and your living situation if you are interested by sending an email to liamwoods1@gmail.com

Hi, I’m Gracie and I am a snuggle-bug who loves to play. My foster mom thinks I’m adorable, smart, curious, loving, and wanting to please. (Moms are so sweet when they sing our praises, aren’t they?) As a 1 year old mixed terrier breed, I weigh in at 19 lbs. I can run and play in the yard by myself but would be delighted to have a doggie friend to play with.  After a good romp, I’d probably need a snooze, preferable curled up next to you with my head in your lap. Then I could sit by a window and be totally entertained watching the world go by. Heck, I sometimes like watching TV.

I’m very shy of new people and struggle with anxiety, likely due to lack of socialization during the time of Covid and experiences in my early life. At this point, I might take an hour and plenty of treats to warm up to new human friends. But once I do, I’m putty in their hands!! My foster mom asked a dog expert about my anxiety/fear. The expert said medication could help me adjust to new situations and people. At this point I am wary of men, new sounds, and new situations. But with patience, kindness, and understanding this could all change. I want so very much to write a new chapter in my life because I’m a sweet, fun-loving, cutie-pie, who wants nothing more than to be someone’s best friend and companion. 

Right now, my ideal home would have a yard in a quite neighborhood or in the country. A calm older dog who is well socialized could show me the ropes of how to be a confident dog and friend to all. I’d shine in a home with a predictable structure and no small children. It would great if my soft-spoken, mellow human companion is semi-retired, retired, or works at home. Three things to note: I am housebroken, not a barker, and at this point, I don’t like riding in cars.

So if you’re looking for a life-long companion with a sweet, fun loving character who will be devoted to you – look no further – that’s me! I’d come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $200. If interested in adopting me, please email Victoria at victoriahand@mac.com

Meet Louie! He is a handsome 9-month old bloodhound, pit bull and lab mix who would make a great addition to a loving family with lots of space and a little extra patience. Louie is a joyful and friendly pup, and wants to be with his people all the time. He is super affectionate and loves to sleep on the bed or sit on the couch with you if you let him. He is learning how to walk well on a leash, and loves playing fetch with a ball or a rope toy. We have not taken him to a dog park yet because he is not yet neutered but he has played really nicely with neighbor dogs, and wants to be friends with everyone who walks by. He also loves to dig!

Louie would do best in a quieter neighborhood without a lot of foot traffic. He is extremely interested in other dogs and people, and if he sees them walking by constantly, he will sit and bark or cry because he can’t play with them. He will also bark every time he hears a doorbell or senses someone at the door. He would thrive in a rural setting with lots of space and another
adult dog, preferably a female who can lead him. He should go to a home without cats or kids younger than 13.

He is extremely food-driven and will do anything for a meaty bone or string cheese. He also loves carrots, apples and sweet potatoes. Food is a huge motivator for him, and it’s important to have lots of treats of different kinds when you take him on a walk, or anywhere new or unfamiliar. Louie is a highly social dog and craves constant interaction. When he gets frustrated or overstimulated, he can be bouncy and mouthy. These episodes have gotten less frequent with training, but it’s important to be aware of it and to continue with the positive reinforcement training while always having ample treats on hand to practice. We also use a crate for him, which has been important both for giving him a quiet space and for preventing him from getting into things when left unattended. Louie is highly trainable and picks up new lessons quickly. We have been working with him on basic concepts as well as impulse control. He would benefit hugely from going to a more structured training class.

Louie is up-to-date on all his shots and will be neutered this month.
We adore Louie and are sad to rehome him. Due to an illness in the family, we are not able to give him the level of attention he needs and deserves. It’s important to us that he go to a home where someone is willing to put in the effort to work with him. If you are interested, please send an email to Jayati at Jayati.ramakrishnan@gmail.com.

*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY, PLEASE CONTACT DEBBIE AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.*

Jojo is a 10 year old short hair, 14 lb. Red colored doxie. He is neutered and up to date on his shots and flea prevention. He has an allergy to some shots, but is otherwise a happy healthy senior!

He knows basic commands but tends to bark, so with some training he should do better. He has a very sweet personality but like most dachshunds can be a bit stubborn. Jojo loves to snuggle and has been excellent with the family’s young kids.

Sadie is a 9 year old short hair, 11 lb. Black colored doxie. Sadie is up to date on her shots but is not spayed. She has greatly improved from a paralyzed hind end (Hind Limb Paresis-Cord Lesion). She can walk, but its a bit of an awkward walk. She requires her urine to be expressed by her owner, and needs to be let outside often to avoid accidents. Her current owner has had good luck with doggie diapers but it needs to be strapped on tight or she will wiggle right out of it. Sadie is good with kids but should not be in a home with other dogs/cats. She travels well in the car, is leash trained and knows basic commands. She loves to cuddle with you under the blanket and take naps in her doggie bed. She enjoys short walks but you will need to go slow and at her own pace. She really likes to cuddle with you, have her tummy rubbed and give you lots of kisses! This special senior needs a lot of TLC, patience and understanding, but she still has a lot of love to give! Please contact her current owner Candace at  (503) 789-1306.
