OF 20
"Oh hi! I’m Alice! Can I be your friend? I like to be friends with everyone! I’m a happy gal with a big heart full of affection and I’ll be sure to greet you with a big goofy smile. Overall, I’m laid-back, walk wonderfully on a leash, and will be a loyal companion to you! Everyone says I’m such a good doggy, why don’t you come on over and find out for yourself?"
Half Pint
"I’m so scared right now, I don’t know if I’m really shy or just uncertain because I’m in a new place. I seem to like being petted, and I do like other dogs, but everything is so scary! The nice people who took my picture let me play with a ball and I liked that. I bet if I got used to someone, I would have a good time playing catch. I just need kindness and time so I can blossom from a Half Pint into a full Pint."
"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!"
Big Boy
"They don’t call me Big Boy for no reason! I have a big body with a big heart! I am a charming boy who just wants attention and TREATS! Yum! I’ll be ready to sit for a tasty treat and even shake your hand. I love food so much that I would prefer to be left alone with my food as I chow down on it. I do not share with anyone! I enjoy being around people but I prefer to go to a home with no children. I need someone strong enough to handle my strength on the leash because sometimes I forget how strong I can be. Come by and meet me! I’ll be ready to lean on you and love you! And I hope that you’ll love me right back. I can’t wait to meet you!"
"If you couldn’t see that my eyes are missing, you would have a hard time telling that I’m blind. I’ve been blind for a while, but only now were my eyes in need of being removed, so that part is new. I’m used to not seeing, so I’m good at walking around sensing what’s around me, and I’m quite happy sniffing the grass. I know when someone is near and delighted to greet you. I’ll give you kisses when you pick me up. Basically, I’m just like any other dog, but even better because I’m me!"
"Hello, everybody, the name is Puma. I am a rather timid shy girl at first so please go slow with me. Please have a bit of patience with me, it will take a bit of time, but you will see that I will get comfortable and spend loads of time with you. I will be very grateful and appreciate the time you spend with me to help me socialize! I hope to find my forever home soon and I hope it’s with you."
"I am a pretty girl with a big smile. When I get a chance to go out, I am all about sniffing and exploring everywhere. I need to get that out of my system, then I will be ready for calmer things such as my celebrity photo shoot. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes, but other times you will hardly notice it. I would like to be the celebrity in your home!"
"Hi, I’m Imogen! I am an oldie but goodie. But don’t let my age fool you! I still got some spunk left in me especially when I see yummy treats. So you may be wondering why I have an ear missing. Well, that’s how I came to ADL and we’re not really sure how it happened but the nice hospital staff here helped clean up my ears. I am more than ready to find my forever person! I would love to go on a nice walk with you and then relax at home on a big bed next to you. Doesn’t that sound like a delightful idea? Come meet me and see how loving and great I am!"
Lima Bean
"Hi, I’m Lima Bean! Aren’t I a pretty kitty?! I like to say hello to everyone. I like to play with strings too! Overall I’m a nice kitty just waiting to find my forever home where I can relax and hang with my forever human. Can you be my forever human?"
"I am a little guy who is proud of myself and proud of my terrific photo. I haven’t had a great life in the past, and that has left me with some skin issues and a tendency to have a bit of the shakes. My skin will get better but maybe not the other thing. I don’t think it will interfere a bit with our life together, and I know I am deserving of a much better one than I have had in the past."

"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!”
"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!"
Kadee Bear
"Hi everyone, I’m very happy that you are interested in my profile. I am a very calm, smart girl that loves to receive lots of affection and hugs. I really enjoy spending time with my human friends. All I need now is a forever home where I will get all the love from my forever family. Come and ask for me so we can meet!"
"Hi there! I’m a strong, lively gal that is searching for an active friend who’ll embrace my energy. I love being outdoors so I would make a great camping buddy. Ooooo and I also love treats! I already know ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and I’m very treat motivated, which means I could easily learn much more! Can you picture it? Just imagine, my beautiful blue and brown eyes lovingly gazing up at you after a walk in the dog park. Come meet me today and let’s become best friends forever!"
"Hello, I am Kassie! A typical day for me is lounging around relaxing. I have a strong preference for a home without other cats. I’m the type of girl who prefers to have cat beds to myself. Even though having cat friend just isn’t my thing, I still wouldn’t mind living with people. As long as they spoil me and love me forever, then I’ll be happy!"
"Hi, I’m Colt! I’m a bashful boy with cute scraggly Benji-like hair. I’m currently looking for a special person who’ll understand that I’m a bit of a nervous guy. However, I can be playful and enjoy having fun! You’ll just need to go slow with me when we meet. I’m trying my best to build up courage and I’m sure with the right person in a loving home, my personality will blossom! If you’re willing to give me a chance at a forever home, then please come spend some quality time with me!"
"I look like I have had a bit of a rough life, but the staff here has found that I am very friendly and loving. I am energetic but strong, so a strong walking or running partner would be a good match for me. I love food and treats, so that will sure help you to train me to behave how you want and make me happy in the process!"
"Hi, I’m Socks! You can meet me in the phat camp of the cattery! I love to climb around up top and people watch. I’m a friendly gal who is looking for someone who wot’ mind me cat napping a lot. I would love to find a comfy home with someone soon! Please meet me so that we can get to know each other!"
"I am a very shy girl but I am very sweet and loving. I also love treats and would feel much more comfortable receiving a delicious treat from you 🙂 I am a very curious girl as well and love to explore my surroundings but would love it more with you by my side!"
"You’ll probably need to ask the staff where to find me when you visit the cattery because I’m good at hiding. Why do I hide? Well, I’m a shy kitty and this environment is new to me. It’s hard to say why exactly I’m a shy kitty around here but that doesn’t mean that I’ll be the same in a home of my own. All I want is to move into a calm and peaceful home where I can take it easy with my human. If I can be given that chance, I’m sure my true personality will blossom!"
