"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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?!"
"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!"
"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!"

"Hi! I’m Edamame! I’m a sweet, curious, calico kitty! I’m looking for a forever home with a cozy cat bed and a nice human who’ll love me just as much as I’ll love them. Come and meet me so we can get to know each other better! I’d love to meet you!"
"My journey to the cattery was a long one. I was brought into the ADL with a fractured leg, emaciated, and dehydrated. Some in my condition would have given up but, with the help of the staff members, I did not. Now, you can’t even tell when you look at me. I’m healthy, happy, and very sweet. My road to recovery was a long one and I am hoping my road to a forever home leads to yours!"
"Hi, I’m Gracie! I’m a very sweet and loving girl. All I want is a fur-ever home. I can be a mellow, laid-back type of girl. I am very smart and love getting treats! I know sit and with more training, I’m sure I can learn lots more. If you would like to get to know me, then visit me at the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions!"
"Hi, my name is David and I’m one smart cookie. I know how to sit, shake, lay down, high five, and I’m even learning how to speak on command. I’m very treat motivated, so teaching me new tricks will be a snap! I’m a young boy, so I still have a good amount of energy and would be a great addition to athletic households. Also, if you haven’t noticed by now, I have beautiful eyes which are perfect for admiring. Don’t wait too long, come meet me as soon as you can!"
"I’m a dainty girl who could be thought of as a fluffy cloud but I do have some “thunderstorm” in me. I’m a little shy so I do not like when someone rushes up to me. Please take your time with me and I promise that it is worth it! I can be very sweet and loving if you give the chance to relax. That chance could be in your home if you want!"
"I’m a social but mischievous little imp. Having a limp has not stopped me from being an active cat. I really love treats and when I am in the mood I love a good cuddle. I’m still very playful and would benefit from a home with lots of toys to entertain me. When I get bored I do find ways to entertain myself but sometimes that can get me in a bit of trouble. If you’re a bit impish like me than we would make the perfect pair!"
"Where do I begin to explain myself? I’m a strong, active, loving dog with a kind heart who gets along with most dogs and people. I was found on a college campus, obviously a stray but soaking up all the attention I could get. A kind lady took me home and tried to find my owner but had no luck. With a house full of family and dogs, she couldn’t keep me though everyone there had fallen in love with me, so they brought me here. She left a letter all about me for the lucky family that adopts me. I hope it says good things! I have a feeling it does, because I’ve seen people cry when they read it. Take me home and you can read it too."
"Hi, I’m Olive! Can you believe I’ve been at ADL for over a year? Crazy, right! I know my person is out there somewhere! Please tell me it could possibly be you! A little about me…I can be a bit shy around new people and places so I may need some time to adjust to my new home. Please don’t let that worry you because before you know it, I am as playful as can be! I love running, exploring, and enjoying my time outdoors. You might catch me rolling around in the grass with a squeaky toy in my mouth because I LOVE to play with toys! I also enjoy a good game of fetch and have impressive skills at catching tennis balls in midair. I’m very treat motivated! I’ll sit for treats and happily stare at you with puppy dog eyes as I wait for the treat. I would fit in best in a home with older considerate children and although I’d prefer to be the only furbaby, I might consider a dog-sibling too. So if you have any potential dog-siblings for me, then let’s set up a meet-and-greet! Overall, I’m a friendly and playful gal who just needs a special person who’ll love me no matter what. I may have a very serious expression when you see me at ADL but there is a silly side to me that you must see! Please give me a chance to show you how fun I can be!"
"Hello, I am Kassie! A typical day for me is lounging around relaxing. I have a strong preference for a home without other cats. I’m the type of girl who prefers to have cat beds to myself. Even though having cat friend just isn’t my thing, I still wouldn’t mind living with people. As long as they spoil me and love me forever, then I’ll be happy!"
"Hi, I’m Neil! I’m a nice guy who you’ll probably find snoozing in a high spot in the cattery here. I usually mind my own business but if you come over to say hello to me, I’ll perk up and come over to you too. You’ll notice that I have a part of my tail missing. What happened there? Well, when I cam to ADL, my tail was broken and the best thing for me was to have part of it removed. Now I have this nubby tail which I like to think makes me more unique. Please visit me and let’s talk about making me your loving cat companion."
