SPRING is an adorable, petite female black and white tuxedo kitty with a cute little white blaze and muzzle on the left half of her face. She's about 7 to 8 years old. She was abandoned when her owner moved away, and was pretty frightened when she first arrived at her foster home. She had been bullied by a neighborhood tomcat, and was accustomed to hiding and then eating when no other kitties were around. Spring has blossomed into a sweet, but somewhat independent kitty. When first approached, she doesn't like to be picked up, but if you ignore her and do something else, she will come to you with gentle head butts, and reach up a paw to get your attention. She enjoys gentle petting, and will sit in your lap as long as you let her make the approach. Once she knows you, she is better about being picked up. Spring LOVES to play capture the shoelace, and then engage in a tug of war with you over the lace. She also likes catnip toys to rub up against. She is a little afraid of young kids, but responds well to gentle attention from older children. When she has had enough petting, she might swat at you a little bit, but she has gotten pretty gentle even with her swats. She has slowly adjusted to the big dog in her foster home, so she could possibly live with a gentle dog. Her adoption fee is $60, which is strictly to help us cover our costs. She has been tested for feline leukemia and FIV (she is negative), spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, defleaed and dewormed - plus she comes with a free vet visit. Spring is currently in foster care.

Our mission is to provide care and find loving homes for companion animals of our community, with a focus on those with special needs. Currently we only work with Cats. We offer temporary housing in foster homes until they can be placed through our adoption process. We have adoption centers within both Petsmarts in Eugene, at Chad Drive, near Costco, and 29th and Willamette; PetCo by Valley River Center and Wags Emporium on Coburg Rd. WCDC works with humane societies, other animal rescue groups, the public and government animal services agencies to offer them relief from their overpopulation problem. All cats in our custody receive the medical care they need. WCDC is a non-profit organization. All money raised is used to help WCDC save as many animal lives as possible.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Our cats can be seen at Petsmart on Chad Drive and on Willamette St, at Petco near Valley River Center and Wags Emporium on Coburg Rd, seven days a week during normal business hours. We do have adoption counselors available on weekends or by appointment or from 11-4pm Sat.-Sun.
Our Adoption Process...
All potential adopters are required to complete our application and contract. Our contract stipulates the requirements for care of our pets. These documents are available through e-mail or at our adoption events. The documents are reviewed by our staff and together with a face to face interview we explore the potential new home. If all parties agree to the specifics of the contract the dog or cat can go home. Adoption fee varies with age of pet. All pets are current on vaccinations, health checked by our veterinarian, De-wormed, treated with flea medication, spayed or neutered, and cats are felv/fiv tested.
