Daffodil is Seeking a Special Somone Who “gets” Her

Long-time WSHS kennel resident Daffodil (aka Daffy) is a spunky, 5 year old active cattle dog mix who knows what she wants and likes. She has a hard time trusting strangers so most visitors pass her by and never get to see her sweet and fun side. She is looking for a very special adopter who is willing to put in the time and patience it will take to become a part of her “inner circle”.

Once you’re in, some of the great things you will find out about Daffy include that fact that she loves running. It's one of her favorite thing to do; she could be in the Olympics! Having a running buddy for life would be awesome, but for now she is happy running on our treadmill -- yes, she does it all by herself and is quite good at it.

She doesn't feel the need to brag, but Daffy is actually whip smart and loves learning new tricks for treats (but only for the good stuff, like yogurt bites and chewy liver snacks).  In addition to the basic commands, she also knows how to shake hands, twirl, speak, and sit in chairs. Don't worry, she'll get down when you tell her to. Also, Daffy wants us to let you know she would prefer to run and perform these when the sun is shining. Thunderstorms are scary because they're so noisy! And being wet is the worst.

But one of the best things, she tells us, would be to have her very own person to run around with and then cuddle with once she's worn out. With her brains and beauty, we know Daffodil could do whatever she wants. But what she really wants is a home. Could that be with you?



Could Geronimo Be Your Tandem Buddy?

While this beautiful three-year-old domestic shorthair mix likes to hang out in the “cattery” here at West Suburban Humane Society, he would love even more to live the life of a pampered pet in his very own home. Geronimo had a rough beginning as a kitten and spent much of his early months living outdoors. That was pretty hard and scary for a young cat, so while he was happy to come to a nice warm place where he can socialize with feline friends and the volunteers, it’s just not the same as a home. He has been at WSHS since October of 2015 and this boy is ready and waiting for his new family to come and find him.

Geronimo likes to climb and be up high in the cattery so that he can watch all the action and see all the visitors. He is just a bit shy at first, but warms up to people after only a few minutes.  He loves to play with a good wand toy as he gets to know new human visitors. He is a good friend to other cats, but has never met a dog, so we’re not sure how he would feel about them. He likes all types of humans, but would be happiest in a family home that has older kids or just adults.

Good things come to those who wait – are you the one Geronimo has been waiting for? Come and visit him and see if he is your perfect match.
