Voldebork
"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."

Casper
"Hi, I’m Casper the friendly cat! I’m very affectionate and love cuddling up to new friends. I’m pretty active too and love a good climbing tree. But what do I really love? Treats!  But what I would love even more is a forever home with you!"

Charles
"Hi, I’m Charles! I’ll probably try to charm you with my playful personality and my friendly attitude. I enjoy going for walks and playing with toys but I will have to take it easy due to a healing fracture in my leg. I’m a good boy who gets along with everyone including dogs too. I’d love a home where I can lounge around with my best friend. I hope you give me a chance to meet you! Maybe we can become best friends?"

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!"

Chowder
"Oh hi there! I’m the handsome Chowder! You know what I really enjoy? Going outside for walks! I love to sniff, sniff, sniff everything while I’m out exploring. Oh and I absolutely love getting all the attention! Let’s meet soon so that you can see what a friendly cool dude I am."

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!"

Titan
"My ears and, uh, more personal body parts barely clear the ground, but that doesn’t make me any less of a Titan. We bassets are big dogs packed into a long, low shape and we are well-loved for it. I love walks, howling as only a basset can do, getting belly rubs and just looking around. I’m a sweet old man who has a few old-man conditions like glaucoma and arthritis, but they are under control with medicines. I would love a home where I can lounge around when I want to and get lots of love. I promise, you can pet my ears whenever you want!"

Salt
"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?!"

Olive
"Hi, I’m Olive! Can you believe I’ve been at ADL for over a year? Crazy, right! I know my person is out there somewhere! Please tell me it could possibly be you! A little about me…I can be a bit shy around new people and places so I may need some time to adjust to my new home. Please don’t let that worry you because before you know it, I am as playful as can be! I love running, exploring, and enjoying my time outdoors. You might catch me rolling around in the grass with a squeaky toy in my mouth because I LOVE to play with toys! I also enjoy a good game of fetch and have impressive skills at catching tennis balls in midair. I’m very treat motivated! I’ll sit for treats and happily stare at you with puppy dog eyes as I wait for the treat. I would fit in best in a home with older considerate children and although I’d prefer to be the only furbaby, I might consider a dog-sibling too. So if you have any potential dog-siblings for me, then let’s set up a meet-and-greet! Overall, I’m a friendly and playful gal who just needs a special person who’ll love me no matter what. I may have a very serious expression when you see me at ADL but there is a silly side to me that you must see! Please give me a chance to show you how fun I can be!"

Dexter
"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!"
