Emeril
"I’m pretty irresistible with my gorgeous eyes and white fur. Just as a caution, please go slow with me. This is not because I’m shy, far from it, but because I get a little overstimulated when I get petted. Slow, relaxing strokes works the best. Anything else gets me all jazzed up. I’m sure once we meet we can figure each other out quickly so you should stop by today!"

Leo
"Hey, you! Yeah, you, down there! Whatcha doin’? Me? I’m just hanging out up high watching everything. I’m a bashful big boy who is very overwhelmed in my new environment. If you have a kind and patience heart you should come take a chance on a shy boy like me!"

Peso
"Hola! My name is Peso! I LOVE to give kisses and I LOVE receiving lots of love! I  walk great on a leash and enjoy going out on my daily walks. All I want is to find my furever family. Could your family possibly be the one I’ve been looking for?"

Phyllis
"Look into my beautiful eyes. You are feeling a tug on your heartstrings. You are getting into your car. You are driving to the ADL. You are going to adopt me! Did it work? I hope so because you’re not going to find a friendlier cat then me!"

Catsup
"I’m a pretty little girl with a bashful heart. If you go slow I warm up real quickly. I really love chin scratches and hanging out up high where I can keep my eye on everything. I would be the perfect “condiment” to anyone so come adopt me today!"

Thaddeus
"I was dumped off here, which wasn’t very nice, but I don’t hold grudges. Life is too short and too much fun. See my happy face? I’m ready to start a new life with people who love me because I love people and I know most of them are great. Come by and I’ll be glad to show you what a wonderful boy I am."

Cryus
"I may be a boxer, but boxing isn’t my thing. I’d much rather play with a squeaky toy or give you slobbery kisses. I’m the gentle kind of guy that likes to stop and smell the roses – or at least pee on them. I’m not half bad at walking on a leash, and I would love to show you. Then I will look at you with my big brown eyes and beg you to take me home, and we will be happy for ever after."

Billiam
"I’m one of the best hunks you will ever meet. I’m very friendly and affectionate. I love getting attention and don’t mind being cuddled. I would love to go to your home to show you how incredible I really am. Please adopt me today!"

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!"
