Meet Cute Chloe, a 2-year-old terrier who’s looking for her home sweet home.

Here’s what Cute Chloe’s friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about her:

Look at that face! Chloe is a gorgeous 2-year-old terrier who just LOVES to be with her humans, and at 43 pounds, she’s the perfect size to cuddle.

She came to the shelter as a stray, underweight and with a few scars. She put on a few pounds, her scars have healed and she’s learning that humans are actually pretty cool, especially when giving belly rubs. She is wary around other pups so we are looking for a family without any other pups. We believe in time she will be fine with other pups with the proper introductions, but for now she is enjoying the one-on-one attention, and we think she deserves it.

She enjoys a fenced backyard, but honestly, this is the pup you are looking for if you want a TV cuddle buddy. She wants nothing more than to hang out with her human.

Say “hi” to Ranger, a sweet and calm 10-year-old kitty looking for his forever home.

Here’s what Ranger’s friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Ranger is a very sweet 10-year-old male looking for his forever home. He is very easygoing and enjoys napping most of the day away. He will gladly sit on the couch next to you for hours! He has a very calm disposition but does get the kitty zoomies when chasing a laser pointer! He loves to communicate with you when he wants attention, especially in the mornings when he is being fed. He is a great cat and is so deserving of a loving home!

Are you and Ranger the perfect match?

Meet Jenny, a sweet, affectionate 3-year-old hound mix available for adoption locally.

Here’s what her friends at NOVA Pets Alive! had to say about her:

Jenny is 3 years old and around 60 pounds.

Jenny’s foster mom says: ‘Jenny is an incredibly sweet dog who will take as much love and affection as she can get! She’s crate trained and leash trained. She’s a little bit of a snob when it comes to her food but is also very gentle when accepting treats. She would make a great family dog. She’s about medium energy — she’ll happily go on hour-long walks, play with a ball or relax on the dog bed in the living room with everyone.’

Jenny would prefer to be the only dog in the home but will happily share her space with some human siblings!

Are you and Jenny the perfect match? If you’re interested in meeting her virtually, apply at novapetsalive.org/adopt.

Say “hi” to Alaska, a sweet and cuddly girl who’s available for adoption locally.

Here’s what her friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about her:

Alaska is a sweet and cuddly girl. She’s an easygoing and laidback cat and even loves belly rubs.

When she’s not lounging around on her comfy cat blanket, she likes to follow and lay down next to her foster. She has been around small dogs and doesn’t pay any mind to them! She will love her human more than other animals. It is unknown how she is with another cat.

Her meows sound like she’s saying “mama.” She loves treats and she has great litter-box manners. When she arrived at her foster home, she was buried in her bed in the carrier for five minutes before she became a cuddle-bug.

Could you and Alaska be the perfect match?

Pet of the Week: Triscuit and Piper

Say “hi” to Triscuit and Piper, two energetic kitties who are up are adoption locally.

Here’s what their friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about this duo:

Sweet Piper is full of energy and is fearless jumping up in the cat trees even though she only has one eye. Initially she was shy, but it didn’t take long before she was ready to play with all the other cats at the lounge. She’s good with adults, kids and especially other cats, so she will need to have a companion.

Triscuit is very playful and energetic. He loves to lick everyone and likes to cuddle with humans. He’s comfortable hanging around the cats but is learning to like the attention he’s been given while at Patriot Cat Lounge. Some of his favorite toys are the wands with birds or worms at the end, but he also loves the ping pong balls. Please come meet him.
See him at instagram hashtag #triscuit_fcdrt.

Will you, Triscuit and Piper make the perfect trio?

Meet Tiny, a sweet and playful boy who’s available for adoption locally.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Are you Batman seeking Robin, Bert looking for Ernie, peanut butter missing jelly? If so, we’ve got the perfect sidekick for you. His name is Tiny, and he’s a glorious black and white people pleaser, a perfect companion. To show his appreciation and affection, he’ll follow you around, rub against your legs, and have a chat with you. In a new situation, Tiny might be shy at first. But before long, his sweet and social side will come through. Tiny is a playful and active guy who likes nothing better than a good game of ‘chase the feather’ with you.

Tiny’s early life was nothing to purr about. Born in Kuwait, he was found in the street with a broken skull. His rescuers got him medical care and lovingly nursed him back to health. Other than a slight wobble when he walks, you’d never know this happy and robust boy went through such trauma.

Your new best buddy is waiting for you. Come meet Tiny at Patriot Pawsabilities soon. See him at instagram hashtag #tiny_fcdrt

Meet Adorable Anna, a 4-year-old Jack Russell mix available for adoption locally.

Here’s what her friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about her:

This precious 4-year-old weighing in at 22 pounds is just the sweetest girl! We believe her to be part Jack Russell terrier and possibly hound with those beautifully long legs of hers!

She was picked up as a stray so we are not sure of her past, but we know we want her future to be bright. She is a bit shy at first, but once she has a chance to settle in she warms right up. We are looking for a family that has older children and a nice fenced backyard for her to play and run around in. Her foster mom says she is house trained and introducing her to a life where she is loved has been fun — she is getting really good at sleeping on couches and cuddling!

She has been a joy to have with us, but she is ready to go to her forever family — we’re confident she will make his adopters a terrific companion. This beautiful girl is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will bring lots of love to any home.

Pet of the Week: Aslan

Meet Aslan, an affectionate senior kitty with a resting grumpy face.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team have to say about him:

Aslan is a senior with a sweet heart and a loving purr.

He has a default grumpy face, but don’t let that fool you. He purrs so loud the vet has trouble hearing his heart beat. He will accept pets and head rubs all day long.

He is marked special needs as he is in the beginnings of renal failure, but we are still hoping to find this angel a forever home for his final years with dignity and lots of attention and love. He deserves it!

Pet of the Week: Tilda

Meet Tilda, a 5-year-old pit bull mix available for adoption locally.

Here’s what her friends at HART (Homeless Animals Rescue Team) have to say about her:

Tilda is a very sweet, friendly, affectionate dog that loves attention, physical contact and being petted and just wants to be loved.

She loves going for long walks and playing fetch in the backyard and is also happy to simply relax and nap near her human when working on the computer or snuggle up while watching TV in the evening. She loves her foster mom and follows her around the house. She also enjoys playing with toys and other dogs and watching the work outside from the window.

Tilda is still adjusting to all the changes that have happened in her life. She is intelligent and capable of learning quickly but needs a confident leader who will set boundaries and provide consistent training. She has learned to do “sit” and “down” with both verbal and hand signals. Her ideal home would be a low-key home where someone is home with her much of the day (even post-COVID).

Tilda likes to play with the other dog in her foster home, but we think she would also do well as an only dog in the home. She is friendly with kids, but due to her exuberance and tendency to jump up on people, she would be too much for most small kids.

Meet Huey, an adult male tuxedo cat available for adoption locally.

Here’s what his friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say about him:

Huey is a very sweet and caring cat. Once he gets to know you, he will climb up into your lap. He loves to be near his human family and sleep right next to you.

He is also very playful and especially loves to play with his laser light. He also likes to play with his small teddy bear toy, which he throws in the air and chases. He loves to play in water.

He also enjoys being rubbed on top of his head and will sit there with his eyes closed for as long as you pet him there. He loves long pets from his head to the end of his tail.

Huey is about a year old.

Hi, I am Theo! 11 week old puppy. My brothers and I were found without our mama, and ended up at the shelter.

I am only 6 pounds, but I think I am a big dog, and have a lot of confidence and personality. I love to cuddle and be carried, but I love romping through the yard and have a lot of energy!

I am looking for a forever home.

Meet Tala, a black Shepherd mix puppy available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about her:

Tala is a happy, friendly little girl who’s just twelve weeks old and 19 pounds.

She was dropped off at the shelter when she was found wandering on the side of the road so we really don’t know who her parents are but if we have to guess we might say German Shepherd! She has been a joy to have with us but she is ready to go to her forever family — we’re confident she will make some adopter a terrific companion.

This beautiful girl is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will bring lots of love to any home.

Meet Dale, a black male kitten available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say about him:

Dale is a beautiful, black stallion. He was rescued from outside to a home with her mom and siblings. He is looking for a forever home where he can play and purr and just snuggle up when he is tired.

He has a white spot on his belly and his chest. He will purr the moment you pick him up. His brother and he have fun together so he would be good around other cats. He loves to play and has a ton of energy.

He needs a home that will give him a lot of attention and has lots of toys.

Meet Marco, a Border Collie and Corgi mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Marco and his brothers Maverick, Mojo and Moose are happy, friendly little boys who are just 9 weeks old and now ready for their forever homes.

They’re all doing great in their foster home, playing and romping as puppies will — they’re such fun to hang out with. Their mom weighs only about 25 pounds and while we don’t know who the father is it seems they won’t get very big, maybe in the 35 to 40 pound range. They might have some corgi or doxie in them as a couple have shorter legs and the mom is also a low rider.

They’re SO CUTE! This great little fella is a nice blend of friendly affection and normal puppy playfulness and will bring lots of joy and love to any home.

Are you and Marco a match?
