Featured Adoptable Cat
Star & Olive
Star and Olive had a really awful life before coming to their current foster home. They were both “rescued” from a horrendous hoarding situation, where they lived in filth, only to be kept in cages from from June 2021 to last month. All they both knew of the world was confinement and loneliness. They’re both still learning to trust but are loving being free in a home environment and just doing regular cat things. Star is more outgoing and curious, while Olive is more reserved, but their personalities will undoubtedly blossom over time. They have both come so far in the past month with their new foster family.
These girls can be adopted as a pair or separately. Both Star and Olive are estimated to be around 6-7 years old, are spayed, FIV/FeLV neg, and vaccinated.

Featured Adoptable Dogs
Name: Mr Smee
Breed: Miniature Poodle
Weight: Approx 18 lbs
Age: Approx 9 years old
Home recommendation: Mr Smee’s ideal home is one where he can get all of the
love and attention he did not receive living in a cage his entire life. He really likes the
company of other animals and would do best in a home with another relaxed dog
Personality: Mr Smee’s foster mom says “He is very sweet and very shy.” Mr Smee
will initially be a bit nervous around you but friendly. Once he warms up, he is happy
to accept pets and likes to be carried up and down the stairs. He loves playing with
his doggy foster sibling and lounging on the couch with his kitty foster sibling!
Kids: 13+ due to advanced age and smaller size
Cats: Yes, check his pictures out to see him with his best kitty friend!
Crate Trained: Yes! He sleeps in a crate
House Trained: Working on it! He gets restless to tell his foster mom when he has to
Why did he come to WISE? Mr Smee was rescued from a horrible puppy mill
situation where he was used for breeding most of his life. When he was determined
“unfit” to be used in their “breeding program” they were going to euthanize him.
WISE wasn’t going to let that happen and saved this cute guy!
