Featured Pet of the Month


Featured Client

Name: Snacks

Age: 13 y/o

Breed: Vietnamese potbelly pig

Proud Parents: Dana and Tim

Favorite Canine Concierge service: convincing her pet sitters to give her treats

Background: Snacks is the promised “teacup” pet pig that got bigger and bigger since “teacup” pigs do not exist.  The way we look at it, there is just more of Snacks to love! She is an indoor pig. Pigs make fabulous pets as long as you do your research and educate yourself.

Favorite foods: bananas (special occasions), Cheerios, lettuce, cucumbers

Favorite activities: taking many many many naps on the couch…..

Favorite toy: her little Cheerios shooting robot

Favorite place to visit: “Grandma’s” in upstate NY

Dislikes: rain, cold, snow, peppers, and spinach

Best Trait: loves to snuggle with her humans on the couch

Funniest moment: it’s all about the “scratches”.  She loves itching every part of her head and body on our parked car tires. You haven’t seen anything until you see a pig scratch her tush on your car’s tire! LoL. 

How has your pet made your life better: Snacks has so much personality. She is cute and cuddly, but a sassy diva too.  Adding a pet pig to our family was the best decision we ever made. She has opened our eyes to how wonderful pigs can be as pets. I can’t imagine my life without her! 

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: Ophelia
Breed: Miniature Poodle
Weight: Approx 7 lbs
Age: Approx 4 years old

Personality: After spending her whole life in a cage, used over and over for breeding,
she is looking for a loving home who will teach her that the world is a good place.
Despite all this, she is so loving and her sweet personality is starting to shine. She
enjoys being in people and dogs' company and receiving pets and snuggles! She's
super curious and loves discovering new things. She is very laid back and calm. She
recently discovered toys and loves them, especially squeaky ones!

Home recommendation: Ophelia is looking for a home that will work on building her
confidence and give her the time she needs to come out of her shell. She is such a
wonderful, deserving dog who is ready to shine! She just needs some extra love and
patience. She must go home with another dog to help show her the ropes!

Kids: 13+ As she would do best in a low activity household.

Dogs: Yes! Ophelia loves other dogs and is currently being fostered with one who
she adores. She enjoys taking naps with them and following them around the house.
She would thrive having another dog in her future home.

Cats: Ophelia would be fine in a home with cats

Crate Trained: She does not currently use a crate

House Trained: Working on it!

Leash Manners: Ophelia has never been walked on a leash and is still learning.

Training: Ophelia had little socialization before coming to WISE due to her past life.
She needs a patient, understanding family who will work on her training and
socialization. She enjoys treats and this is the best way to gain her trust

Why did she come to WISE? Ophelia was rescued from a horrible puppy mill
situation where she was used for breeding most of her life. When she was
determined “unfit” to be used in their “breeding program” they were going to euthanize her. WISE wasn't going to let that happen and saved this sweet gal!
