Tara
"Hey there! I’m Tara. You will most likely find me hiding in my litterbox so please ask to see me. I do well with other cat friends and feel more adventurous at night. I can’t wait to find my home where I can possibly have a cat friend and settle down with my person. Please come meet me soon!"

Nadia
"Hi, I’m Nadia! I may appear shy at first but give me a chance to warm up to you! Before you know it, I’ll  be happily receiving treats from your hand. I’ll even let you give me neck scratches which I love! You know what else I’d love? To spend all my time by your side! How does that sound? Come meet me and make me your new feline friend!"

Herbert
"I am a distinguished older gentleman but my face was wrinkled even when I was a young pup. I am very sweet and love to relax and chill out. Why fuss and run about when a nice ortho bed or sofa is available for lounging around? I really love people except for those little ones. They’re okay but I prefer to walk away from them and find a grown up who will give me affection and treats. I don’t have any teeth any more but I might mouth you a bit in a playful way. The joints are a bit stiff now. I hope all this honesty hasn’t put you off. If you meet me you will adore me like everyone else around here does."

Genghis Khan
"I am strong and young and eager to go. I am not sure my name is right for me because I am a sweetie who just loves attention and am good with children as well as big people. I have to admit, though, that I consider other dogs to be the enemy that arouses my not so nice side. So I need a home where I can be the only dog. I promise you won’t regret it if you adopt me."

Nala
"Hi, I’m Nala! I’m what they call an oldie but goodie and I definitely have a lot of good in my heart. I’m a loving, calm, affectionate kitty who loves attention and meeting new people. I especially love head rubs and chin rubs which I’ll make sure to get from you. This is my third time at ADL but last time I was here, I was a much younger gal. It was actually ten years ago to be exact. Sometimes things don’t work out for the best and so here I am again. I’m hopeful someone will come by soon and make me their forever companion. I’m a lovable kitty who treats everyone like they’re my best friend and I hope you’ll be the one to make me your best friend too and take me home with you!"

Smitty
"Hello! I’m Smitty and I am a rather shy guy. Everyone keeps telling me that I’m a handsome boy and I hope you think so too! I’m a little more robust than I should be and that’s why I’m trying to get down to a healthy weight. I hope my future family will help me on my weight loss journey. Ideally, I would like someone who’ll feed me a good diet and enjoy playtime with me. A laser pointer, cat nip, and a cat wand with feathers might help get me moving. Even though I’m a shy kitty, I’d still love to meet you! Come by the Paul Jolly and let’s meet soon because I’d much rather finish out my weight loss journey in a loving home with you."

Akira
"I’m almost a bulldog, and everyone loves a bulldog. Kids love me for sure, and I love kids too. I even had a couple of my own canine kind right before I came here! I’m good with some dogs, but if you already have one, it’s best if you bring him or her by to see how we get along before you take me home. I’m fond of treats and squeakies, not to mention kisses and hugs. I get hot quickly in the summer but I enjoy walks and am good on the leash. Then I flop down flat on the floor to cool off. Want to cool off with me?"

Rudolph
"Hello, I am Rudolph! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m also a nice boy but sometimes I’m a little wary around new people so please take your time with me. Before you know it, you’ll soon gain my trust and be seeing plenty of smiles from me! I enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks. I like to sit by the side of people I know. I am looking forward to finding someone who’ll give me the chance be their best friend. Come by and meet me today!"

Neil
"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."

Harvey
"Oh hello! My name is Harvey! I’m sure you’re wondering why I have this scar on the side of my face. Well, when I came to ADL I had a mass near my ear but thankfully the nice hospital staff at ADL removed it for me. Now I have this beauty mark near my ear. Overall, I’m a sweet and cuddly tabby girl. I would love to find a good home with a cozy cat bed and a nice human friend to keep me company. Let’s meet and see if we can make that happen for you and me!"
