Meet Tessa Thompson

NAME: Tessa Thompson

AGE/GENDER: 2 years 5 months 2 weeks 4 days/Female

BREED: TerrierWEIGHT: 9 lbs.

TEMPERAMENT: Lovely, energetic, playful.HOUSE TRAINING: Working on it. She's perfect when crated or during the night, but she doesn't ask to go out so she will need to be monitored so accidents don't happen. She will sometimes pee from excitement.CRATE TRAINING: Not a huge fan and will whine a little initially but is crated when not supervised.OTHER DOGS: Unsure as she is not fostered with other dogs and has been in quarantine due to her prior distemper. She'll need some socialization and confidence training.CATS: Not tested but she does chase chickens (though it's possible to stop her)CHILDREN: Excellent. She can play hard when too excited, but cools down fast when the play stops.


HEALTH: Tessa Thompson is spayed, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental costs of care. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with a free 30 day trial of free pet insurance provided by 24PetWatch.

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find Tessa a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: Tessa has been in quarantine for 3 months due to distemper. She is now healthy and has no side effects from this virus. However, now we are starting to get to know the healthy Tessa! More information coming soon!

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs. We also send home additional flea treatment and deworming medication for your future use.


Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Training Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur. This Studio location does have an Adoptable Cat Lounge, where cats may live until adoption, which is the exception to any aforementioned rules.

Please email and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.
