Hi there! I’m Wilford, and I am so ready to find a home of my own. I’ve been here at Wanderers’ Rest since February and would love a nice, soft spot to call my very own. I do fairly well with other cats and with the right introductions would fit well into any home. If there is a blank spot on the back of your couch just my size, stop in to say hello or call 315.697.2796 for more information.
I’m an older girl, probably 10 or so, but don’t let that fool you! I love to walk and be outdoors and am looking for a nice, quiet home that will take me on my daily outings. Kids 16 and up are recommended because sometimes my hips get a little creaky and sore. If you are looking for a quiet, older companion to keep you company, then I’m your girl! For more information, call 315.697.2796.
Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association
(Town of Lenox, NY – Nov. 2012) Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association, 30 years strong, is an open-admission shelter in Canastota, New York, that serves more than 1,000 cats and dogs each year. Wanderers’ Rest accepts unwanted or stray dogs and cats from Madison County, but is open to all Central New Yorkers who wish to adopt a dog or cat.
Wanderers’ Rest was founded in 1981 by a group of citizens who wanted to do more than impound stray animals in Madison County. Their vision for a comprehensive humane organization emphasized caring for and preparing homeless cats and dogs for adoption. Today Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association shelters, heals and enriches up to 1,500 cats and dogs each year. The organization finds new homes for unwanted animals, reunites lost pets with their families, and supports low-income families with spay/neuter assistance and emergency pet food to enable them to afford and keep their pets. Educational programs in area schools emphasize spaying and neutering and responsible pet ownership for the next generation of pet-lovers.
Through its public education programs, the shelter promotes responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals everywhere. Wanderers’ Rest is a non-profit, 501c3 organization that welcomes contributions and volunteers. Call 315.697.2796 or visit www.wanderersrest.org.
