Brody
"Hi, I’m Brody! I’m a true ladies man – handsome, affectionate, and devoted to my girls! I don’t really like to share affection with other furbabies though. If you have another dog at home, we’ll need to have a meet and greet to make sure that we can be pals. I do great not only with the ladies but children too! Visit me at the Paul Jolly Center and give me a chance to win you over with my patent pending kisses!"

Gwen
"Hello, I am a little shy when meeting new friends, but if you come up to me to show me, love, I will show you love right back! I also like to teach people about me! Did you know that black cats coat can rust? As of right now I am solid black, but as I  get older it might change."

Armin
"I’m a rowdy young dog, still growing and maturing and overflowing with puppy energy. I love running and playing, and splashing in water, especially in summer, is the greatest! I need an owner who’s experienced in taking care of dogs like me – dogs with good hearts who love being busy all the time and want to learn how to be good boys. Just like most youngsters, I can throw quite a temper tantrum when I get frustrated, so I need to learn to channel my energy. I bet I’d be great at sports like agility or frisbee. Will you be the one who helps me?"

Viola
"Have I got a dog for you! That would be me, of course. I’m big, but I’ve been described as “pretty chill.” I’m good in crowds, and I love children, puppies and small dogs. And adult humans, of course. To my eternal shame, I’m afraid of big dogs. I guess I don’t recognize myself in the mirror. I’m good on the leash, and I love to go exploring. If you adopt me, I will make your life complete."

Lauren
"Hi, I’m Lauren! I’m a sociable kitty that wants all the attention. I try my best to make sure people see me by extending my paw and swatting at them to get their attention. People usually smile at me when I do that, I’m happy to be able to make people smile. You may notice that my eyes look a little different and that’s because I do have corneal scarring. I may not have perfect eyes but I know that I can make the perfect companion for someone out there. For now, I’ll just keep on swatting at every person that passes by me and hope that soon I’ll be swatting at the person who’ll find me to be the perfect kitty companion for them."

Bonnie
"I’m trying my best to not be so shy around people but can you blame me? I was found roaming a neighborhood with nowhere to go and was brought here to look for a home. I’m looking forward to the day I find that special person for me, so that I can have a nice home where I can relax with them. I’m sure within time, I’ll learn to break out of my shell and show my true self. Will you give me a chance to get to know you and be your best friend?"

Archie
"Hi, I’m Archie! I sometimes get a bit bashful in my kennel but once I’m out I feel better! I have excellent leash manners and will walk right by your side. I am looking for a loving home where I can lay back and relax with my person. If you have a furry friend for me, then I’d like to have a meet and greet with them first. Please visit me and consider giving me a chance to be your pal!"

Jenkins
"Oooh, what do I see over there? Something to chase? Something to kiss? Something to investigate? There’s so much of life for a young dog, but mostly I want a forever home, and I bet I’m just the right dog for you. I like calm children and other dogs, I’m adorable and cuddly, and I’m waiting right here for you. What are you waiting for?"
