At the Animal Defense League, there are plenty of adoptable dogs and cats that just want someone to love them — and they'll love you right back. Stop by and choose which adorable, furry friend you want to make a new member of the family.
"Yes. it's me Missy Elliot. In the flesh. I look a little different on TV but I can assure you it's me. So I am a little "shy" at first or as we call it in the industry "stage fright". Once I come comfortable I will open up and come out of my shell. Hope to see you soon!"
"Hi, I'm Alina! I'm a sweet and social girl that's ready for adventure. I love tasty treats and plush toys! I make a great walking partner who still knows how to chill on the couch. I'm good with most dogs and playful with kids. Come by and meet me!"
"I'm a friendly, downright sweet and curious girl with hopeful eyes. I have a steadfast willingness to make a human connection with you. I must admit I'd like to meet my future fur-sibling before I go home to them, because I'm a little picky about my friends. I know the ins and outs of walking well on a leash and I'll "sit" for a treat. Loving you and keeping you company will enrich my life. I truly miss having someone special in my life and I sure hope you'll let me sweeten yours."
"Haha so funny, I may be a little on the round side but I am totally wonderful. I love to lounge around and be petted. I enjoy getting attention but don’t like to share it with other cats. I can be a bit sassy with other cats but if they leave me alone, I leave them alone. I would be really happy if you came and adopted me today!"
"I am a shy girl who loves to be carried and cuddled! I am looking for a home where I can break out of my shell and show off the silly, super girl I am! I love squeaky toys and treats may just be the way to my heart!"
"I am called Stub Muffin because of my adorably stubby legs! I am a very goofy boy who loves his treats. I am also very sweet and playful pup who enjoys sniffing everything. I am full of love but I also want my stomach to be full of treats. Let’s meet each other and if you present me with a yummy treat I’ll sit and give you some of my loving!"
"I am a well-behaved senior lady who would love to spend my retirement with you! I have been told I am a joy to be around and love all types of humans. I would fit into just about any family just fine so adopt me and make me part of yours!"
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."
"I have a secret to tell you – I am kind of a big deal around here and the staff all love me. I am a very talkative boy who will tell you all about my day if you come in to visit me. I want to be held and loved all the time but if you can't hold me every second of the day, I am also pretty happy exploring and making new kitty friends!"
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"
"Hi, I’m Navy! I’m a playful gal who loves to have a jolly good time! My zippy personality will fit in perfectly with someone with an active lifestyle! I will be sure to bring lots of cheer and joy to any home. I would like to meet any possible fur-siblings to see how well we get along. If you’re looking for a fun sidekick, then please give me a chance to fill that position!"
"Being new in the Cattery is not easy. My life has been a little rough until now so I learning to trust again. I need someone with lots of love and patience and I am sure I will blossom into a very loving cat. Are you that someone?"
"I am strong and young and eager to go. I am not sure my name is right for me because I am a sweetie who just loves attention and am good with children as well as big people. I have to admit, though, that I consider other dogs to be the enemy that arouses my not so nice side. So I need a home where I can be the only dog. I promise you won’t regret it if you adopt me."
"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."
