"I’m pretty irresistible with my gorgeous eyes and white fur. Just as a caution, please go slow with me. This is not because I’m shy, far from it, but because I get a little overstimulated when I get petted. Slow, relaxing strokes works the best. Anything else gets me all jazzed up. I’m sure once we meet we can figure each other out quickly so you should stop by today!"
"Hey, you! Yeah, you, down there! Whatcha doin’? Me? I’m just hanging out up high watching everything. I’m a bashful big boy who is very overwhelmed in my new environment. If you have a kind and patience heart you should come take a chance on a shy boy like me!"
"Oh hello there, I’m the handsome Ollie. I love to romp around and have a grand ol’ time! I would love to meet a human that I can go on outdoor adventures with. If you’re looking for a cheerful furry friend, then come on over and let’s get to know each other!"
"Hola! My name is Peso! I LOVE to give kisses and I LOVE receiving lots of love! I walk great on a leash and enjoy going out on my daily walks. All I want is to find my furever family. Could your family possibly be the one I’ve been looking for?"
"Look into my beautiful eyes. You are feeling a tug on your heartstrings. You are getting into your car. You are driving to the ADL. You are going to adopt me! Did it work? I hope so because you’re not going to find a friendlier cat then me!"
"I’m a pretty little girl with a bashful heart. If you go slow I warm up real quickly. I really love chin scratches and hanging out up high where I can keep my eye on everything. I would be the perfect “condiment” to anyone so come adopt me today!"
"I was dumped off here, which wasn’t very nice, but I don’t hold grudges. Life is too short and too much fun. See my happy face? I’m ready to start a new life with people who love me because I love people and I know most of them are great. Come by and I’ll be glad to show you what a wonderful boy I am."
"I may be a boxer, but boxing isn’t my thing. I’d much rather play with a squeaky toy or give you slobbery kisses. I’m the gentle kind of guy that likes to stop and smell the roses – or at least pee on them. I’m not half bad at walking on a leash, and I would love to show you. Then I will look at you with my big brown eyes and beg you to take me home, and we will be happy for ever after."
"I’m one of the best hunks you will ever meet. I’m very friendly and affectionate. I love getting attention and don’t mind being cuddled. I would love to go to your home to show you how incredible I really am. Please adopt me today!"
"I’m a gorgeous dilute calico who is still trying to get my bearing. I certainly look at humans like I want their affection but I am taking my time making up my mind. I’m sure you understand that I don’t want to rush into any quick decisions. Besides, I’m waiting for the perfect person to come visit me and I think that person can be you!"

"Hi, I’m Obie! I’m a playful and friendly boy who’s looking for the perfect active human friend for me! Can’t you just imagine me as your fun furry sidekick? If so, don’t wait too long, come meet me today!"
"I am a strong boy with a lot of energy, so I am looking for an active family who loves to exercise and play. I was advertising these desires to the people taking my photo by playing tug of war with them with my leash. I happen to think that life is for being happy and enjoying every day. Do you agree? Then adopting me will add to your joy as I share every day with you."

"I’m not a misunderstood bad boy. I’m just a shy boy who is slowly gaining confidence in my surroundings. I’m a talker so I’ll let you know when I’m up to be petted or if it is “me time” and it’s best if I’m left alone. Come visit me today so you can see that I am no bad guy."
"I was taking one of my many great naps when I was woken up for my photo shoot. When I’m not napping or doing photo shoots with a sleepy face, I’m greeting everyone who comes into Phat Camp. Some would say that I am cranky, but, I promise, it’s just how I meow. I promise I’ll be a good, loving boy if you come adopt me!"
"Oh boy! Another human to love on! That’s my greatest joy in life. I’m not one of those crazy jumping-all-over-you dogs, but I’m very affectionate, and if you’re sitting down, I’m likely to put my paws gently in your lap and slip one up and over your arm. If you let me, I might even kiss your cheek. My second greatest joy is getting treats, so feel free to give me some when you come to visit."
"Whether you like lots of cuddles or long walks, that’s fine with me, because I like both of those. And I’m really good at both too! I also have a unique coat of many colors. They are all shades of brown and tan, but they aren’t spots, and they aren’t exactly patches. They are more like random areas that decided to be various sizes and shades. It’s weird because my face is so perfectly symmetrical. If you go for the unusual, I’m your dog."
"I’m a dainty girl who could be thought of as a fluffy cloud but I do have some “thunderstorm” in me. I’m a little shy so I do not like when someone rushes up to me. Please take your time with me and I promise that it is worth it! I can be very sweet and loving if you give the chance to relax. That chance could be in your home if you want!"
"I’m a social but mischievous little imp. Having a limp has not stopped me from being an active cat. I really love treats and when I am in the mood I love a good cuddle. I’m still very playful and would benefit from a home with lots of toys to entertain me. When I get bored I do find ways to entertain myself but sometimes that can get me in a bit of trouble. If you’re a bit impish like me than we would make the perfect pair!"
"Hello, I am Rudolph! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m also a nice boy but sometimes I’m a little wary around new people so please take your time with me. Before you know it, you’ll soon gain my trust and be seeing plenty of smiles from me! I enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks. I like to sit by the side of people I know. I am looking forward to finding someone who’ll give me the chance be their best friend. Come by and meet me today!"
"Where do I begin to explain myself? I’m a strong, active, loving dog with a kind heart who gets along with most dogs and people. I was found on a college campus, obviously a stray but soaking up all the attention I could get. A kind lady took me home and tried to find my owner but had no luck. With a house full of family and dogs, she couldn’t keep me though everyone there had fallen in love with me, so they brought me here. She left a letter all about me for the lucky family that adopts me. I hope it says good things! I have a feeling it does, because I’ve seen people cry when they read it. Take me home and you can read it too."
