Ireland
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."

Bianca
"Hello, I’m Bianca. I’m still new around here and that’s why I’m a bit apprehensive at the moment. I would really like a home where I can settle down and relax. I’m eager to find someone who will give me the chance to warm up to them and help me understand that everything will be okay. A calm home with a cozy bed would be lovely! Will you give a nervous kitty like me a chance to be your friend?"

Edgar
"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!"

Fergie
"So I can’t sing like my namesake, but I’m just as pretty, with my long, glamorous hair, don’t you think? My boyfriend Butch thinks so. People may laugh and call me a cougar since Butch is a lot younger, but he’s such a cute little guy that I don’t want to ever be without him. Where he goes, I go, and where I go, he goes. Can we go with you?"

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!"

Tala
"Hi, I’m Tala! I’m a chunky yet funky girl who is looking for my forever home. I am very energetic and love to play fetch! I walk very well on a leash, so walks are a breeze for me. Come visit me and let’s go for a walk!"

Charlie
"Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m pretty right? I’m pretty on the inside too but you’ll need to give me some time to show you. I have to admit…I do better with the ladies than men, and older kiddos would be best for me. Someone spent a lot of time teaching me tricks during the time I had spent time in a home…adjusting to life in the shelter has made me a bit nervous. Come by and meet me and let’s see how things go!"

Crissy
"Don’t I have a unique face? I have a unique personality too! Anyone would be so happy to have me in their home. Are you that person? If so, you should come adopt me today!"
