"Hi, I’m Simba! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I would look even more handsome on your couch, don’t you think? I’m a friendly feline who enjoys meditating and sunbathing by the window. If you can imagine us being best buds, then let’s meet soon!"
"I am Patches, and I am the leader and protector of my pack. What I lack in size I make up for in personality. I also think I am better looking than my best friend, but don’t tell her I said that. I have formed quite the bond with my friend Foxy, so we both are earnestly campaigning to go to a home together. I am a kind, lovable guy as she can attest to, and I have enough to go around to a human or humans that take us home."
Bill Almighty
"Hello! I’m Bill Almighty! I know I look like a real life Garfield but I’m not much of a grouch like Garfield. I am a fairly calm dude with a very chill personality. I enjoy relaxing and taking it easy. I don’t mind being pet, in fact I love chin rubs! Why don’t you visit me soon and give me some chin rubs?"
"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!"
"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!"
"Look at me, look at me! I am the doggo with the best wiggle with the best smile and with the best eyes. I’d just like to say that if we meet and I get a belly rub from you then I’ll go crazy in love with you and would want to give you a loving hug. I love treats but let’s be honest, who doesn’t love treats, but seriously give me treats though and my hugs will be endless. I love to be out and about so let’s meet!"
"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!"
"Take a good look at these blue eyes, you’ll fall in love with me right away! I am a very handsome boy who loves to go out on walks, I’m pretty good on the leash. I would love it if you came down to spend time with me so we can get to know each other very well and hopefully you’ll give me my forever home."
"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!"
"Hi there! I’m Lauralai! I’m a bit of an older gal but don’t let that fool ya! I still have the energy of a young lady who enjoys playing, exploring, and going on outdoor adventures. Along with my energy, I have a lot of love to give! I’m sure that I’ll keep you smiling with my silly antics. Please give a playful doggy like me a chance to be your furry best friend!"

"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"Hi there! I’m an incredibly sweet and loving girl that wants nothing more than your love. I sometimes have playful bursts of energy because I always want to have fun, especially when people are around! I also enjoy relaxing and sleeping for hours. I’m a smart gal too! I know how to sit, shake, and do so much more. When you visit me, I may be barking at you in my kennel, but please ask to take me out so you can see my true personality shine! And according to staff around here, I make the most adorable funny faces. How about you come by and I’ll show you? I’m sure I’ll make you smile!"
"Hi, I’m Cho! Look into my eyes, don’t you think they are beautiful? I hope they convince you to come meet me! I am a quiet kitty who tends to keep to myself in the cattery. I’m not a social butterfly but wish I could be! I’m just shy and will need some time to get to know new people. I hope someone will be willing to give me that chance to get to know them. Will you give me that chance?"
"Hi! I am a wiggly happy boy who loves all the attention! I get very entertained and distracted by shoelaces and any type of lace I see, they look very fun to play with! Although I am a very energetic boy that loves to have fun with my human pals, I need a cozy home where I can take it easy for a while because I’m healing from an injury on my left leg. Let’s meet, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with me!"
"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."
"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."
"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?!"
"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!"
