"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!"
"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."
"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?"
"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."
"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."
"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?"
"I’m a social butterfly with a fun loving personality! I tend to gallop around when I’m full of joy and outside with people. I also like to give out hugs! On hot sunny days, I love to snack on cold watermelon….yum! Come by and visit me to see what a fun gal I truly am! I hope to soon be bringing lots of joy to your home!"
"Don’t worry the only spell I will cast on you is for you to love me, I’m not evil sorceress, I’m just a spicy tabby. I love attention but only from humans. I absolutely do not like other cats so it would be best if I am the only cat in the home. that home should be yours. Come get me today so I don’t have to put a spell on you!"
"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!"
"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?"

"Tobie could be a girl or boy name and I’m a boy. I’m not a web-slinging action hero like Tobey Maguire but I’m willing to be your friendly forever home cat. Don’t walk, don’t run…swing in to meet me!"
"I love to smile and really enjoy treats! I feel so happy when I receive a treat, makes me feel so loved. I will even sit for a treat if you ask me to sit. I can take a bit to warm up to you because I am rather shy but once you and I start hanging, you will see all my love!"
"I am a gorgeous young girl with lots of energy and curiosity. I love to be out looking and sniffing around at all the wonderful things in this world. I love to be with people and will give them kisses in return for a good cuddle. I am picky about my dog friends so I will have to meet any that you may have to make sure we get along."
"I think they call me Ram because I like to ram my head into people’s legs. That’s my way of requesting immediate attention from humans! I was roaming around the hospital here and they ended up taking me in. I am a friendly kitty but I tend to get grouchy around other felines. That’s why I would prefer a home where I can be the only furbaby to receive all the attention from my human! There is something special about my heart that the staff can tell you more about here. One thing I can tell you for sure is that my heart will have plenty of affection for you. Will you give me a chance to be your best feline friend? Please, say yes and let’s meet!"
"I am full of lots and lots of energy and love to play tug-a-war. I am told that I am very smart because I know sit, lay, stay, and leave it. I am a bit scared of strangers so the commands might not register as quickly but once we get to know one another and get each other’s vibes I’m sure we will be playing and jiving."
"I am an affectionate and playful goofball! I like to be around people and I prefer a home where I’m the only furbaby in the family. Sometimes my attention span is a little short when I’m outside for a walk because I like to check out all the action going on at ADL. I want to find an active person that I can go on adventures with and someone who will cherish me forever!"
"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!"
"Hello! I am the curious Sadie! I like to check out everything going on around me. I am gentle older lady and have excellent leash walking manners. I like to relax most of the day but just because I’m a senior doesn’t mean that I don’t know how to have fun! I love playtime and being outdoors. I like to play with toys and I really enjoy splashing around in the kiddie pool! All I want is to be around people and I would especially love to be around you. Please visit me so that I can show you how wonderful I am!"
"When you come to see me be sure to look up high in the rafters because that is where I will be! I’m a cautious cat who likes to observe from afar. I’m looking for a big-hearted person with lots of love and patience. Is that person you?"
"I’m a walking contradiction. How so you ask? Take my name for one. I’m a girl but my name is Tuxedo. Then there’s the fact that one day I can be super affectionate and friendly, rubbing all over people’s legs for attention and the next day I’m shy and scared and have hidden away from the public. The only way to know which cat I am is to come see me today!"
