Happy Waif Wednesday! Here are three outstanding and adorable animals ready to find their forever homes! Our Waifs of the Week are Rhodey, Whiskers and Conner!


Well hi there!  My name’s Rhodey, and I’m so glad you decided to stop and read about me.  I was wandering around town all by myself when a nice stranger picked me up and brought me to Wayside.  It sure feels good to be safe and warm and properly fed every day, but I’m really hoping to find a home of my own very soon.

You should know that I enjoy snuggling with people.  One of the volunteers here calls me “an absolute sweetheart,” and you shouldn’t be surprised if I lay my head in your lap or even on your chest.  I just have so much love to give!  But there’s more to me than just cuddles.  I’m also good on a leash and as you can tell from one of my pictures, I love to run around outside too.  Even though nobody’s taken the time before to give me any training, I’m learning quickly and already know the command “sit.”  If you give me the time and attention and throw some yummy treats my way, I’ll be ready to learn all the house rules in no time.

So what do you say?  Do I sound like your kind of guy?  I hope you’ll come to Wayside soon to meet me in the flesh!  Be sure to bring any other canine kids along with you so we can make sure we all get along.

I can’t wait to meet you!



Hello there! My name is Whiskers, and I’m a stunning, classic tortie (tortoiseshell) girl with large, expressive golden eyes. I came to Wayside as a stray. (Can you believe someone let a gorgeous girl like me get away?)

I’m a sweet, friendly kitty who adores being petted. I especially love being scratched on the top of my head. Awww … that feels like heaven! I also love almost any kind of treats. (Hint, hint!)

I’m so thankful to be here at Wayside, warm and well fed. But what I’m really dreaming of this holiday season is a home and family of my very own.

Maybe you are dreaming of finding a sweet, beautiful forever friend? If so, we might be a purrfect match!

Love, Whiskers


Hi there! My name’s Conner, and I’m so happy you stopped to read about me!

I’m a friendly boy who just loves people so much. Do you like giving pets? Then, you’re in luck, ’cause I like getting them! I’m a pretty high energy guy, so I’m hoping to find a home that can give me lots of attention and exercise. I think it would be so cool to go to training together. I like treats, and I’m super eager to learn commands like “sit” and “come” and all kinds of other doggie manners. Would you like to take the time to teach me? In return, I promise I’ll love you with everything I’ve got!

Oooh I hope you come to meet me soon! And if you’ve got other pooches at home, be sure to bring them along too. I just want to make sure we all get along great.

Wags and kisses,
