"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”
"I am a delightful young man. I am obedient and walk well on a leash, plus I know several commands. I can sit, shake, and lay down but maybe not all at once. I love treats so it would be easy peasy to train me some more. The best thing of all about me, though, is I have the biggest smile in the whole place. I like to play rough so please ask the staff for more information about how I would be with kids and other animals. Don’t you think it is fate that we should meet?”
"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?"
"I am one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet! My hobbies include going on short walks around the block, sleeping for many many hours because who doesn’t love sleeping, getting belly rubs which I love sooooo much and showing my love and affection. I would love to make one of my hobbies to love my forever family!"
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"
"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, hello, hello, hello! I’m Missy, the best gal you will ever meet. I am so excited to get to meet you and I will be even more excited if I get to see you in person near me! I am a very jolly and playful gal who loves to be goofy and always wants to have everyone smiling. We should definitely meet right now! Can’t wait till we hang around the doggie park and become a forever family."
"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."
"Hola, me llamo Señor! It’s great to see you and hopefully be able to meet you. I am as lucky as they come; before I came into ADL I had the roughest time out on my own. I was surprised at how bad I was; I was told that I had been struggling with severe dermatitis, ear mites, and hair loss from sarcoptic mange. I know sounds horrible right! Well on top of all that, I was told, I had entropion which is a condition where my eyelids fold inwards causing me great discomfort. And as one condition kept coming after another I was also told that I had been diagnosed with FIV. As you might imagine, when I came in, I was quite the grumpy whiskers especially since I could barely see the humans around me! But now, I am soooooo much better and I feel soooo happy! Estoy muy muy muy feliz! I really would love to put all this crazy past experience behind me and find a forever home where I can find a forever family to love me and enjoy all my antics and my Spanish. I do have to go with another furry friend that either has FIV or would have to be an only cat. We should get to know each other better so we can learn all about one another!"
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”

“Hi, I’m Apple! I’m an adventure seeker! I love to play with rope toys and am playful around humans. I would love to find a home with a yard where I can run around and have someone around who’ll enjoy my silly antics. Can I be the apple of your eye? Please say yes!”
"Hi, I’m Ninja! My most advanced ninja skills include quietly sneaking around, leaping, and hiding. Although, I wouldn’t say that I have the greatest hiding skills. Sometimes my attempts at “hiding” involve me facing a wall and hoping that I’m invisible to everyone. You see, I’m actually an extremely bashful ninja. I’m currently in a room filled with other kitties and random people that come and go. Being the shy kitty that I am, I prefer to hide up top away from the action. I look forward to finding a calm home with a special person who’ll look past my terrible hiding skills and love me no matter what."
“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.”
"Everyone at ADL keeps saying I’m friendly which makes me smile so so much my tail just wags like crazy when I get called adorable and cute! It’s such a great fuzzy feeling. I have an idea, how about we meet and enjoy a nice long walk. I would love to have a forever family to give me these compliments!"
"Let me just be honest: I’m going to “nope” out of any situation because I’m an extremely shy cat. I’m very timid and prefer to keep to myself. That doesn’t mean there isn’t perfect person out there to help me grown in confidence. Is that person you?"
"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!"
"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 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!"
"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!"
"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!"
