Lyric
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”

Josie
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”

April
"Hello, my name is April. I am not the most social cat in the cattery, I rather enjoy being independent but I would like to spend my time with someone that would show me love and affection. I would love to find my forever home and have a forever family! Maybe that can be you? Let’s get to know each other!"

Jethro
"I am one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet!

Samiyah
"Everyone at ADL keeps saying I’m friendly which makes me smile so so much my tail just wags like crazy when I get called adorable and cute! It’s such a great fuzzy feeling. I have an idea, how about we meet and enjoy a nice long walk. I would love to have a forever family to give me these compliments!"

Albus
"Hello, I am Albus! I enjoy  hanging out in high spots in the cattery so that I can check out everything below me. I like to be lazy and enjoy head rubs. Overall, I’m a nice guy and aren’t I handsome? Let’s meet so that we can see if I’m the perfect friend for you!"

Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"

Herby
"Hi there! My name is Herby the Love Bug! Go ahead and tell me how much you love me, I’m all ears! They’re pretty big but I think it makes me look adorable! Don’t you think so too? I’m a charming, playful, goofy, and super curious little guy! I would love to go on adventures with you!"

Jewel
"Just like the singer Jewel, I’ll sing this lyric to you, “I know that you love me and soon you will see, you were meant for me and I was meant for you.” Okay so you won’t actually hear me singing that song but please know that I’ll have those exact thoughts when I meet you. I generally feel that way towards most people because I love everyone and I’m confident you’ll love me right back! I’m a very laid-back type of gal who enjoys sun bathing and relaxing. I’m always happy to receive neck rubs and will happily purr when you shower me with attention.  Please give me the chance to find out if you’re meant to be the best friend for me!"
