Please meet our Waifs of the Week: Belle, Monica, and Caz! These three beauties are ready to go home with their forever families!


Hi there! I’m happy to see you. I’m Belle!

I have to admit, I don’t really relish shelter life. Wayside is nice and everything, but I would prefer to be in a quiet, comfy home with some humans I can bond with and love.  It might take a little bit to get to know me, but once you do, you’ll see how I’m just a loveable, normal dog. I’m a little unsure here. I’ve met some dogs that I like but others I don’t connect with. It’s somewhat confusing so please bring your dog family out to meet me. I hope we can make it work!

I’m nervous in the shelter but as soon as I hit the exit, I’m a different girl. I love being outside where I can shake my cares away. I relish a brisk walk and sniffs around town. I’m looking for someone I can relate to and understands me, my timid soul and adventurous spirt! Is that you?

Come get to know me better! Ask for me by name.

Lots of love, Belle


Hello there! My name is Monica, and I am a 1 and a half-year-old gal looking for my furever family, and I think that could be you! I have long, white whiskers and the prettiest green eyes that you will ever lay your eyes on!

I am what my friends here at Wayside like to call Leader of the Band. I am the type of cat who likes to adventure and have fun! I absolutely love love love to play! Feather wands are my favorite, and they are also a great stress reliever for me! This will be a great way to help me warm up in my new home.

Don’t let my adventurous side fool you. I am also a big fan of affection! Pets, hugs, whatever your heart desires, I will appreciate and return! A combination of fun and love is exactly what I am looking for, and I hope that involves you!

I will need some time to warm up to you and my new house, so it would be best if for the first week or so I had my own room! Change can be scary at first for anyone, but I will be sure to make myself right at home once I get comfortable.

I am so excited for our future together, and I know I will love you so much! I will prefer not to share my love for you, so a house with no kids or dogs will be the best fit for me. If you are looking for a confident, fun cat, I’m your girl. Please come visit me at Wayside! I cannot wait to meet my furever family!

Love, Monica


Hi, I’m Caz! I’m a handsome, Pit Bull Terrier mix who’s looking for a place to call my own. I was brought to Wayside when my last rescue ran out of space for me. It’s okay though! I’m making lots of friends while I wait for my family to find me. I can’t wait to get home and chill out with my peeps!

The people here say I’m a big goof ball, whatever that means. I LOVE my toys especially the ones that squeak! I like to play by myself so you won’t have to worry about me staying busy when you’re not there. I’d much rather you be there, though! I love to get out and exercise by taking walks and do well on my leash. I also love keeping my brain sharp by learning new thing!

I’m a sweet guy with so much love to give. I hope you’ll come by soon so I can show you! Hope to see you soon!

Love, Caz
