"Hi everyone! I enjoy showing everyone my smile! I enjoy being out and about on a nice day. I love going on walks to get to know other people around me. I keep getting told that I like to act goofy which of course I do, its fun!"

Jackson
"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."

Harley Quinn
"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!"

Casey
"Oldie?! Who you calling an oldie?! Okay, so I do have a graying muzzle but throughout my life I’ve learned to have outstanding manners! I know how to sit for treats and will greet you with a paw-shake. If you would like to give me belly rubs, I will gladly accept that offer. I know how to walk eloquently on the leash and not pull the other person on the other end. I am accepting of all attention from humans and get along with most dogs around here. I am a gentle and polite lady with a big heart. Will you give me a chance to show you what a good dog I am?"

Pixie
"I am living proof that you can indeed teach an old – or let’s say middle-aged – dog new tricks. I’m 7, and I’m learning to be quiet. I used to be noisy, but now every time I’m told to be quiet and I am, I get a treat! What could be better than that? Well, getting a forever home would be, for sure. I’m a nice, friendly girl and would make a wonderful companion, as long as I’m an only dog."

Ram
"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!"

Aquafina
"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!"

James
"James is a royal name and being a mastiff means I come from royal blood. I’m very stoic and kingly unless you show me a treat. I love treats so much I unleash my goofy side to get you to give them to me. I’m possessive of my food and will guard it so it’s best I go home with a family with children 12 year and up. So if you’re looking for a king who can get down and be goofy then look no further than me!"

Tobie
"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!"

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?"
