About Maggie

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.Whenever I try to explain Maggie to others, I always say that she must have been a dog in her past life. She comes when you call her name, she wants to play all the time, and she loves attention. The red dot laser, and shoe laces are her favorite toys. Maggie lived with another female cat the first 2 years that I had her. They constantly played, licked each other, and cuddled together. I've never seen her be aggressive towards other animals. She tends to be timid towards other animals and people these days-- probably because I haven't exposed her to many other cats or dogs. She's not aggressive at all, though. I trained her as a kitten to be very submissive and non-aggressive. She's never bitten myself, my roommates, the doctor, strangers, or anyone. Take vet visits, for instance. She never hisses or bites the doctors. Instead, she will just try to hide and run out of their arms. And then even after that, she's rubbing her body on their legs like nothing happened. She just likes good energy. If she's insecure when visiting a new place (like being boarded or my parent's house) she will just hide until she gets comfortable, then she's her normal self. She hasn't been around any children for years. Though with knowing her behavior, her training, and her past with other animals and strangers, I can confidently say that she will not be aggressive towards children, even if they grab her tail or poke her (I do it all the time when playing with her).So far, all vet visits have come back with healthy lab results. Her only condition, which must be genetic, is that she had a lot of gingivitis, and some diseased teeth that had to be pulled. Many of her teeth are gone now, so I only feed her wet food. (Her favorite is the 3oz Purina wet food with gravy). I don't recommend feeding her solid food because she'll swallow it whole and that won't digest well. She may need more dental work in the future if she gets more gingivitis. Some food additives to help keep teeth clean can keep the gingivitis at bay.Maggie is litter box trained. Even when taking her to a family member's house for a weekend and bringing the litter dome, if I show her where it is and keep her in the same room as it for an hour, she has never had any "accidents" outside of the litter box.I am putting Maggie up for adoption for a couple reasons: I'm not home that often to give her the attention she looks for so I feel awful that she's always home alone most of the day without a playmate, and I cannot afford to take care of her anymore. I would rather try to set her up for a home-to-home adoption instead of give her up at a shelter.

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.Chloe is a 13 year old Shih Tzu, approximately 15 pounds, and is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. She is on a grain-free diet which has really minimized her health issues throughout the years. She is currently having some slight incontinence issues that I'm addressing with her doctor.Chloe is a very loving dog who curls up next to anyone who is sitting on our couch. She loves to sleep in our bed as well and we never used a cage for her. She never ever chewed on furniture or shoes. She's very playful and prefers people to toys. Chloe is very, very gentle around children and is famous at our nursery school for entertaining the children during their animal curriculum. She adores when they pet her or scratch her tummy. She has absolutely no fear of other dogs, even big ones. I'm putting Chloe up for adoption because I'm traveling constantly and she is boarded more often than she is home. I feel that someone would enjoy having a very cuddly, extremely well-behaved senior dog around them.

THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.My cats name is Goldie and he is a 3 year old neutered male weighing in around 13-15 lbs. I adopted Goldie from The Anti-Cruelty Society in May of 2016. His microchip number is 982000405465131. Goldie is a very sweet, loving cat and is very mild tempered. The only other animal he has been around was my daughter's Shih Tzu dog this past June for a week and he did not care for the dog, electing to stay under the couch the majority of the time. He has no issue with children. He loves for them to rub and brush him, he is affectionate, loves to cuddle and enjoys playing hide n seek in the bathtub. He has had no past or present health problems, is not on a special diet and he is not currently taking any medication. I feed him Iams cat food, ¼ cup in the morning and another at night. His most active time is morning and afternoon and he loves to play with a wand toy. I am putting Goldie up for adoption because my mom is 90 years old with health problems; I have to stay with her from time to time and I have no one to cat sit. I want Goldie to go to a loving home.Thank you,Sandra Faust773-595-9703sandrafaust@ymail.comThe Anti-Cruelty Society makes no claims regarding the people using this service or the animals presented here.

THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.After a full year of trying to introduce Marty to a new home and another cat, we have come to the conclusion that he would be better off in another environment. I have had Marty since he was a kitten, and he has never been exposed to children, however based on his general temperament I can assume that he would do better with older children who can respect his boundaries. He mostly loves to nap and hang out but can also be very active when he plays- if he joins a household with another cat, he would probably be happiest with one that also loves to play! Marty has gotten along with other cats in the past, including a younger cat he lived with for three years. Unfortunately we have decided that having to keep him separated from our other cat is not giving Marty the space or attention he needs to be happy. Marty is a sweet and affectionate cat and if you have the time for him, he will enrich your life just as he has enriched ours.Kevin Boots 708-218-4379kevinwboots@gmail.comThe Anti-Cruelty Society makes no claims regarding the people using this service or the animals presented here.
