"I have a big smile on my face because I am very excited to have you visiting my pet profile. I would love to give you a hug but you aren’t here yet! Once you come down, we can get to know each other and take a good long trip to the park, you’ll receive my full affection. I LOVE treats and I LOVE to be able to run around and explore. I feel like we need to meet in person to know more about each other! We will become best friends!"
"Hi, I’m Elsa! Or you can call me Queen Elsa! I am a big jolly gal who is always wearing eyeliner. I have to admit, I don’t have the best leash skills, I forget that I can be powerful and tug on the leash a lot. I love to be around people but I can be picky with my K9 friends. As for cats, I’m just not fond of those critters. Since I’ve come to ADL, I’ve been treated for heartworms and the people in the hospital believe it caused me to have a heart murmur. This heart of mine is still strong and has a lot of love to give! I’ll just need to take it easy and be sure to not over exert myself. I wouldn’t mind lounging on a couch with my best friend. If you’re interested in making me your best friend and can handle a big doggy like me, then let’s meet!"
"When I first came to ADL I was an extremely cautious kitty but I’m really starting break out of my shell. I have been at ADL since March and have become familiar with the cattery. That’s why I’ve become more brave and now I actually come out to greet people! However, I’d much rather move into a home of my own where I can relax with my family. Just be sure to be gentle and slow around me when we first meet. Stick out your hand and I’ll probably start rubbing my face on your hand. Please consider giving me a chance to be your kitty friend!"
"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 will curiously look at you and be ready to love you. However, there is something a little special about me, I won’t be able to hear you because I’m deaf. If you have a treat for me, I will be so happy and smile! I’m a calm boy and have excellent leash walking manners. I would really like to have someone who I can relax with and call my best friend. Would you like to be my best friend?"
"Hi, I’m Bubba! I’m still fairly new around the cattery but I assure you that I am a friendly boy! They told me that I’m extra large and put me in the phat camp here so that I can lose a little weight. I really want to find my forever home soon. Please come by and meet me to get to know me better!"
"People say that I am incredibly sweet and loving. I do enjoy sitting in laps, being held, and handing out kisses to everyone. I like to go for strolls outside and love treats! Why not come and visit me to find out for yourself how sweet they say I am? Maybe I can be the doggy captain in your home?"
"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!"
"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!"
"Hello there! You know what I adore? Stuffed animals, chatting, and playtime! I am an enthusiastic and sociable k9 who likes to goof around. I have a dynamic personality that may be too much for some pups to handle. That’s why I would like to meet any potential fur-siblings to see how well we get along. I’m a nice guy who would fit in best with an active family with older children. If you’re looking for a fun furry friend, then give me a chance!"
