Please Help Rose Find Her Forever Home!!!
My name is Rose and I’m just as sweet and pretty as my name implies! I’m a 5 year old bulldog/terrier mix and an expert cuddler. As you can see in my photos, I have the best “smile.” Cuddling is my absolute favorite thing to do (I will close my eyes and “snore” sitting up if you massage me and rub my ears)! My gentle, mellow personality coupled with my desire to be with people and be loved on makes me the perfect therapy dog (my foster mom helped me get certified!) so I can visit with people in hospitals and nursing homes to brighten their day! I experienced separation anxiety when I first came to my foster home but with time, patience, and training, I learned how to be home alone. I will need help adjusting to my new forever home when I’m adopted and will need the ability to roam free in the house while you’re gone. A mellow canine companion (or two) my size and similar in personality to me will also help keep me company while you’re gone. I’m fine with cats, too!
Cat and Kitten Foster Homes Needed!!!
We’re a little scared – kitten season is upon us and we don’t have enough foster homes! We need YOU to save the lives of these precious babies in our Milwaukee community!!!
The number of lives Milwaukee Pets Alive can save is directly correlated to the number of foster homes we have. The more people we have that will open their hearts and homes to these pets in need, the more we can save – it’s that simple!
And don’t forget about the adult cats – they need fosters to save their lives too!
During the warmer months, many organizations focus on little kittens to rescue, while adult cats are overlooked (adult cats are considered 1 year of age and older – there are many young 1 year old cats coming into animal control during the influx of kittens, too!)
MPA rescues animals ONLY from MADACC (Milwaukee Animal Control). MPA focuses on those animals there that may be passed over by other groups, with no other option for live outcomes, truly defining “life-saving”.
Be a part of it! Click on the “get involved” tab at the top of this page, then click on “become a foster” to find our foster application. Print it out, fill it in, then return by one of the means indicated on the top of the application (the application is not fillable – it must be printed out to be completed).
Don’t delay – beautiful feline lives are waiting for you to save them! We can’t wait to hear from you - Meow!
