Keke
"Hi, I’m a friendly and very social girl who loves treats and of course plush toys! I truly enjoy getting to meet and become friends with a human pal. I truly love to explore and encounter all the different smells out there but I love it, even more, when I have a forever family keeping me company letting me know that I am loved. Maybe you can be my forever best friend!"

Twilight
"Hi, I’m Twilight! I came to ADL with my tall brother, Steven! I say “tall” because compared to me, I’m so short! Steven gets a little sad when I’m not around so I try my best to stick by his side to keep him company. We like to go outside for a little bit and then come back into our kennel to relax. People say I’m the more energetic one and Steven is the calm one. We can both be a little bashful, especially around strangers, but we eventually warm up to familiar faces. We are both on a mission to find someone who’ll open their heart to a bonded pair like us! Steven is my best friend and we’d like to stay best friends forever! Please give us a chance to make you our best friend too!"

Quiche
"I can be a savory Quiche but I will need to “bake” for a long time in a new home. I’m very bashful and prefer to hide away instead of socializing. So go slow with me and when I say slow I mean that literally. Sudden movements startled me. I just need someone with lots of love and patience to take me home. Is that person you?"

Herby
"Hi there! My name is Herby the Love Bug! Go ahead and tell me how much you love me, I’m all ears! They’re pretty big but I think it makes me look adorable! Don’t you think so too? I’m a charming, playful, goofy, and super curious little guy! I would love to go on adventures with you!"

Marble
"Don’t let the gray muzzle fool you. You know what they say – 50 is the new 30. I’m 49 in dog years (if you believe that stuff), so I’m quite the young lady! It’s right there on my sign: “Still has plenty of energy.” If you don’t believe it, take me for a walk. I’m not so ill-mannered that I would pull you. I seem to have been properly raised: I am leash-trained, of course, and I am gentle and even-tempered. Just please don’t call me old. I’d much rather be called your dog."

Bellatrix
"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!"

Olivia
"Hi, I’m Olivia! Don’t I look like an old wise man with my scruffy beard? Well, I’m actually just a 5-year-old bearded lady. I’m sweet, loving, calm, and prefer to be held most of the time. I also love treats and enjoy calm walks in the park. I get along with most dogs and kiddos. I have something special about my heart that they call a heart murmur and the staff can tell you more about that. All I know is that this heart of mine is full of love! If you’re looking for a gentle furry companion, then give me a chance to be your friend!"

Dave
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple,  you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"

Tuxedo
"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!"

Fate
"I’m such a silly girl! I can be bashful but then I’ll act like a tough lady when big dogs and people walk past my kennel. But then…I get taken out while being talked to like a baby and I’ll instantly melt into any arms that hold me. I’m a bit shy and the staff is working with me to break out of my shell and so far I’m starting to warm up to people. However, I hope I don’t stay here too long that I get the chance to warm up to everyone! I’d much rather focus on warming up to my forever person in my forever home. Please consider giving silly “tough” me a chance to melt into your arms!"
