Make dreams of a rescue come true
Placing abandoned animals is one of the many services offered by Tears Animal Rescue. Some of the rescued animals quickly find new homes while others end up staying a little longer.
Here are some of the animals that have been at the Tears Animal Rescue Kennel and Cattery for at least over a year.
To help shed light on some of the animals that stay longer, People’s post presents them here.
Meet Tears Long-Lasting Cats and Dogs for October:
I arrived here with my siblings (Valentino, Jake and Harley) when I was a young kitten. We were pretty terrified at first, but after a few months we decided that life here was actually not that bad, with the most delicious food and treats on offer and room service on top of that. One day my siblings decided that the tricks and hugs were really good too, I’m not convinced yet. I need more time and patience. I am looking for a calm and patient human. PS I have a beautiful diamond shaped badge on my chest that keeps my heart out until I find my person. Could you be my one true love?
I was the best mother cat in the cattery. I was incredibly attentive and so gently playful with my two kittens. Now that they’ve grown up, I feel a bit lost and irritated by other adult cats. I yearn for a home as a single cat where I can be your âkittenâ and my true loving nature can come back to play.
I’m a little shy, but actually I like the human attention a lot. I would prefer soft-spoken people who will spend time getting to know me. This is when I really shine. When it comes to relationships, I am very level-headed. I’m not hopping paws first, if you know what I’m talking about. But give me a little time, and then I’ll shower you with purrs and headshots and lots of lap time.
I am affectionate, playful and always very happy to see you. I love the attention so much, but sometimes I get a little too excited and can give you some love bites. To be honest, I love to snack. But in my defense, my love bites are still sweet. My favorite hobby is chewing on toys. I need a lot of stimulation but also downtime, like somewhere quiet to rest my excitable bones. PS I’m not a fan of other cats. Let me be your one and only and I will make sure you don’t feel alone.
I am a young Africanis – Pitbull mix, full of energy. I was abandoned from Ocean View because my owners had to move and couldn’t take me with them. I have lived with older children, but no cats please! I am fairly easy going, although I am very active and busy. I am looking for a person or a family to spend time teaching me the ways of the world, with an active lifestyle, and who will take me on many adventures in the great outdoors. I’m one of the longest stays here so my turn is due soon – can’t wait to meet you!
I’m a young Pitbull from Ocean View, here without fail. My family couldn’t take care of me anymore, so I’m looking for someone special to give me a fresh start. When I arrived I was very anxious and didn’t trust anyone. Now that I’m part of the kennel crew, I’ve made new friends and got a taste for life again. I need someone who understands my type, who will guide me and keep me safe, and take me on many walks. I’m a fast learner and can’t wait for you to teach me what it’s like to be part of a real family, forever this time!
Don’t be fooled by my loud bark – once you get to know me you’ll realize that I only do this because I’m not sure about the world around me. I like to go on an adventure with other dogs, I have a good reminder off leash and I am very protective. I’m also a little flirtatious and have a lot of energy so long runs, mountain hikes and beach sessions are the order of the day for me please! I am looking for a special patient friend, kind, committed (without cats!) To give me the chance that I expect. I have been at Tears the longest among everyone and it makes me really sad.
My past has been far from perfect and I try to forget the beatings I took before I got to Tears. That’s why when you first meet me I look so sad. I hope a kind soul will save the day and show me that life is good, after all. I love to relax and love the individual attention from someone I trust. I’ve been with Tears for far too long and continue to be ignored, which makes me even sadder! Could you be my happiness forever?
