1st Annual “Pups In The Park” Day!

May 17th, 2016

Mark your calendars everyone! West Side Cats is having a “Pups In The Park” Day on Saturday, June 18th from 11 A.M. until 3 P.M. I know we are a cat shelter but with the group outside near the Suspension Bridge in Mill Creek Park we thought it might be too dangerous to bring your cats outside on the chance they might get away so we decided to have a PUPS day!

We will be photographing your dog for a $10 donation. You will then get a 5 x 7 framed photo after it is professionally processed and printed and framed. This will take a little time so you won’t get it that same day but you can check it out on the camera before you leave to make sure you approve! Mill Creek Park has been great to allow us to have this event in their park!

We will also be selling raffle tickets for the Father’s Day TV and we will have some items for sale. All the proceeds will benefit the cats at West Side Cats! Please stop by so your doggie can have his/her photo taken! All these photos of the dogs here have been taken by me. I also help out at Pawz 2 Adopt located in Austintown. If you know anyone who wants to adopt a dog please let me know and I can get you in contact with that wonderful organization!

Thank you to everyone who came out to see what we had for sale and we were so pleased to see everyone! Thank you to all our donators because without you we would not have items to sell! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped Janet out with this sale! A big thank you to Janet for her hard work and dedication with these sales that benefit all the wonderful cats and kittens who temporarily call us home! Thanks go out to our three radio promoters – Dan, Lynn and Louie who helped get the word out to the public along with all our friends at the newspapers who help us out with all our submissions.

Tinker! Can be seen at PetSmart in Boardman! Tinker was adopted!!!!!!

May 9th, 2016

Tinker came in to our shelter at West Side Cats on 4/15/16. Tinker came in with the help of a Real Estate Agent who found her left at a rental property! Tinker is a very nice cat that didn’t deserve to be left behind like that! Tinker is about 2 years old. She is a Dilute Tortie who has been microchipped so obviously someone loved her at some time. Sad, but now that Tinker is with us she has a chance at a wonderful life! Right now Tinker is at PetSmart in Boardman and Debbie was kind enough to send us these photos! Thank you Debbie! Please go see Tinker – she is wonderful! She would make a great addition to your family!

Zaura – our beautiful white lady! Zaura was adopted!!!!!

May 9th, 2016

Zaura is a beautiful white female cat who was dropped off at a lady’s house with her sister Cammie (not shown). The wonderful lady couldn’t keep them so she brought them to us. She wanted them to find a “Furrever” home instead of living on the streets of Youngstown. You can visit Zaura at Petco in Boardman. Our West Side Cats volunteer Sean takes excellent care of the cats at the store for us! Thank you Sean! We appreciate all that you do! Well Zaura told me to tell you to count all her toes and see if you like the flower in her hair? She hopes you do! Zaura will be waiting for you at Petco! Hugs & Purrs & Kisses! Zaura

Cammie! Not available just yet – just wanted to introduce her! We will keep you posted!

May 8th, 2016

Here is none other than the beautiful and delightful Cammie! Cammie was dropped off at a ladies house along with her sibling Zaura (not shown). The nice lady couldn’t keep them so she brought them to West Side Cats to find their “Furrever” homes! Cammie is a Female Tri-color Tortie who is very affectionate and loving. Cammie and Zaura can be adopted together or each on their own. We know they like other cats but children and dogs are unknown at this time. Cammie said to stop in and visit her and her sister Zaura and all their friends! We are open Tues – Sat 2 to 6 P.M. Thanks and Purrs from all the “Furheads”!
