Wednesday has arrived, so let’s give a big welcome to our Waifs of the Week: Addey, Butterfinger and Jill! All three of these wonderful souls will make the best additions to their forever families!


Hi! I’m a wiggly, waggly little cutie pie named Addey.. I’m gentle and friendly and probably the sweetest thing to ever walk on four paws. I came to Wayside as a stray, so I’m really looking forward to finding my very own family to love!

Speaking of love, I’ve got lots of it to give! One of my very favorite things in the whole world is giving kisses! I’m so affectionate and adore the attention of people. Wouldn’t you love to snuggle up with me on the couch and watch a movie or maybe scratch my bottom while I smother you with smooches? I promise you’ll never be lonely as long as I’m around. And when company comes over, I’m a perfect little lady that greets them at the door but keeps my paws on the floor. You won’t have to worry about me jumping up on anyone.

When I’m not cuddling, one of my other favorite things is going for walks! You should see how happy I get when I see my leash! I prance and dance and twirl in anticipation of going outside with you. I’m great on a leash too – I might pull just a little bit at first, but then I will settle down and stay right by your side. I also think it would be tons of fun to run and romp around in a fenced in yard. I just get so excited to be outside in the fresh air!

Oh I almost forgot to tell you – I’m completely housebroken! Isn’t that great? I’m also super smart – I picked up the “sit” command in about five seconds flat, so I won’t have any problems learning all the house rules and what you expect of me. I hope you’ll be patient though, because sometimes I like to survey new situations from my own safe spot (like a crate), but it doesn’t take long for me to warm up and join right in.

What do you say? Do I sound like your kind of girl? Why don’t you load up the family – including any kids and dogs – and head on down to Wayside to meet me. I’ll be watching for you!

Wags and kisses, Addey


Pleased to meet you! Thanks for reading about me! My name is Butterfinger and I can be just as sweet as my name suggests. I’m almost two and I’ve got gorgeous black and white fur. I came to Wayside from another shelter that was low on space. Moving around has been a little scary but everyone here is so nice and they tell me it won’t be long until I find my forever family.

Around here, they call me a Sidekick. That means I’m a brave kitty in new situations and I’ll always be around to help you, no matter what you need. I think I’d be especially great at helping you make dinner or clean up around the house.

You should also know I LOVE to play. I’m curious and interested in new things so a wand toy to pounce on would be super fun! It’s also a nice way for us to bond! I also like to do my own thing sometimes. I’ll let you know when I’ve had enough.

I would do best in a home with kiddos over the age of 5. Sometimes I can play a little hard but also small kiddos may not be able to read my signals that say I’m done playing.

I can’t help but dream of having my very own home to pounce around in. I’d also love a window to watch birds from. Seems like a simple request, huh? I thought so too!

Come to Wayside and ask to meet me today!

Love, Butterfinger


Hi there!  My name’s Jill and I am so glad you stopped to read about me.  I was found wandering the streets all alone.  What a scary time that was!  I’m happy to be safe and fed here in the shelter, but what I really want is to meet my fur-ever family.

I’m a fun and friendly gal, and I love to play with toys.  I’m super smart too.  Since I’ve never had anyone to give me the attention I need, the nice folks here at Wayside are teaching me how to keep my paws on the floor, even when I get excited.  It’s so fun to learn, and I’m really hoping my new peeps will keep working with me on my training.

I walk great on a leash – relaxed and bouncy.  Wouldn’t you love to go exploring with me or walk me around the neighborhood?  Sometimes I just like things my own way so I might be good as an only dog, but I’m also working on my doggie manners.  If you’ve got canine kids at home, please be sure to bring them with you to see how we get along together.

Life can be tough when you’re all alone, but I try not to let it get me down.  If you’re looking for a happy, energetic girl, then please come meet me soon.  I can’t wait to start my new adventure with you!

Love, Jill
