Sophie
"Hello! I’m Sophie! I am always ready to get out of my kennel and check out everything that’s going on at ADL. I’m very friendly and like to be around the humans. Let’s meet so that we can get to know each other better!"

Cordelia
"You’ve heard the term “gentle giant.” That’s me. I’m a large gal, but I’m calm, loving, and look at me smile! I’m mostly American bulldog, which is nothing like what you picture when you think of a bulldog. I do great on the leash, and I sit for treats. I love being around people, and I’ll be glad to show you when you come for a visit."

Clawdia
"I’m a gorgeous dilute calico who is still trying to get my bearing. I certainly look at humans like I want their affection but I am taking my time making up my mind. I’m sure you understand that I don’t want to rush into any quick decisions. Besides, I’m waiting for the perfect person to come visit me and I think that person can be you!"

Paul
"I’m a handsome boy with beautiful eyes. I’m also a bit shy. My bashfulness is not too overwhelming and if you go slow I’ll warm right up to you. Once I do I turn into a purr machine. Please look past my timid personality and come adopt me today!"

Mabel
"Are you ready to play? I hope so, because I am! I’m always ready to have some fun. Even when I’m still, which isn’t often, my whole back half wags with excitement when I see someone coming because I love people and I’m hoping they are coming to play or take me for a run. I know the sit command, but stay? That’s harder for a girl who just wants to be on the move. But if you pet me I might do it, because I love attention. Come for a visit and we can have so much fun, and then you can take me home and we can keep on having fun forever!"

Jughead
"I’m not just named after the comic book, I’m a lot like the “real” Jughead. Despite my perky look, I love being lazy, just like Jughead. I do like walks, and if you entice me enough, I enjoy being active and playing with my family.  One thing I do not like is cats, so don’t even think about that. I’m pretty picky about my dog friends, so if you like me and already have a dog, I’d advise bringing him by for a visit to see if I approve. I adore people and being around them, and if you take me home, we will be BFFs, I just know it."

Carly
"I am one strikingly beautiful oldie but a goodie. I like to hang out up high but I am very sweet. Trust me when I say my photo does not do me justice. I’m not being conceited when I say I am one of the most beautiful cats that have ever been at ADL. Everyone says so. As bonus, I have an equally adorable bonded mate named Calvin who I have to be adopted with. Trust me when I say we’re the most perfect pair and who wouldn’t want to double the love in their household? I know you do so come adopt the both of us today!"

Salt
"Hello! I’m Salt. I’m a very affectionate gal when I’m not hiding. I enjoy the company of other cats and find I do best when given a companion! Once I warm up to you, I’ll provide the best cuddle! Will you cuddle with me?!"

Chance
"Despite my size, I’m full of enthusiasm. The only problem is that my enthusiasm also involves food, which has led to a slight (OK, more than slight) problem of overweight. That means as much as I love to play, my weight interferes with my ability to do it as much as I would like to. The solution? I’m on a diet. That’s not a lot of fun, but they tell me that if I’m a good boy and stick to it, I will be able to frolic like I did when I was a slim, trim jock of a dog. Wouldn’t you love to help a sweet, chubby guy get back down to his best weight? I will love you forever!"

Phillip
"Hi, I’m Phillip! I’m a friendly, calm, and gentle dog. I have great leash walking skills and enjoy taking strolls alongside people. Will you be one of those people I can go on a stroll with? Maybe we can become best buds!"
