My name is Shrimp and I am the most beautiful Calico kitty ever. It looks like I'm wearing a ballroom mask. I am a petite girl with the softest fur. I am a teensy shy at first, but ohhhhh, after you start rubbing me, I will purrrrr to beat the band. I love scratches, especially under my neck. I am such a good girl. I eat well, use the litterbox religiously, get along with all the other FURR kitties and just really need a home of my own. I can be an only kitty where you just dote over me, or I can get along with other kitties, too. You won't find a more colorful little girl than me. For more info, call Feline Urgent Rescue and Rehab at 864-483-2444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Terry is my foster mom and personal assistant and she’ll be happy to help arrange a time for us to meet.

◄I’m a happygo-lucky girl who just wants a loving home with kind folks who are active because I do like to play. At 1-year-old, I’m a Black Mouth Cur mix who is already spayed and my ID number is A456916
I am friendly with all the staff members and I’d love to meet you very soon as well! ♥
◄Laid-back and loveable, that’s me! I wish I could tell you my name, but right now I’m only known as ID number A461027. At just 1-year-old, I’m a neutered Pit mix boy who gets attached to people very quickly. I may seem shy in my kennel but take me into the play yard and see how quickly I warm up. If you have a dog who needs a playmate, bring him or her out to the shelter so we can meet. See you soon! ♥
◄I’m a lovely spayed girl who has been very sweet with all the staff members. Won’t you come visit so I can show you how sweet I’ll be with you?
I can be shy at first, but a little time and patience is all I’ll need. I’m quiet in my kennel and very food motivated. A461527 is my ID number. If you have another dog in the household, please bring him or her out to the shelter for a meet and greet with me! ♥
◄Are you a Husky lover? Well, I’m waiting for you! At just 5-years-old, I’m a neutered boy who has been one of the more quiet Huskies to come through the shelter. I can be shy at first, but just give me a little time to get to know you. Experience with my breed is important! My ID number is A461500 Let’s meet! ♥
◄Are you the Valentine I’ve been waiting for?
I’m a handsome Pit Bull boy, just 2-years-old and already neutered. I like all people but I absolutely adore women! I enjoy skipping and playing in the shelter yard and I have been known to be a silly fellow that makes everyone smile. My ID number is A457526. Come meet me! ♥
◄So you want an affectionate dog who will gaze at you with eyes full of love? Well, come and meet me! I am shy at first, but only for a moment. I warm up quickly and attach to people even quicker!
I’m an active little girl, just 2-years-old and already spayed. I like toys that make noise and enjoy Kong toys as well. My ID number is A460975 but I bet you’ll think of a much better name for me! Oh, if you already have a dog, please bring him or her to the shelter for a get-to-know-me session! ♥

My name is Sam and I’m a 1-year-old chocolate point Siamese! I had a terrible time (being abandoned outdoors) as I am front paw declawed and could not fend for myself. Thankfully, my rescuer fed me and helped me regain my strength. I went to the vet and was neutered, vaccinated and tested negative for FeLV/FIV/ Heartworm. I also had an ear treatment, and am on flea, tick, worm, and ear mite protection. I am super cuddly and extremely well-behaved. All I want to do is be with you or on your lap to be loved and give love. Please contact Thundering Paws Pet Adoption at 910-224-8068 or email email@example.com.

I just don’t understand why no one has come to meet me or has even asked about me.
I’m just the sweetest dog and if you give me a toy, I’ll be content and play for hours. My name is Hazel and I'm a small Pit Bull mix who weighs 35 pounds. I’m a real sweetheart on a quest for a good home. I do well with bigger dogs and I’m fine with felines. I was at a rural shelter with not much time to spare when Hamilton’s Healing Hearts took me in. I am around 8-years of age and have no teeth but that doesn’t stop me from loving toys, rawhides and kibble. I’m ready to celebrate life with you. I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. For info on adopting me, call Hamilton’s Healing Hearts at 910-271-5170 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!

►My name is Pecan Pie and I am a sweet special needs kitty. I love to talk and chirp for attention. I get along very well with other cats and would be ideal as a companion for your existing cat. I’m very curious and must inspect everything thoroughly, for safety of course. My new favorite hobby is watching the fish tank - I’ll stare all day. I’m also a big fan of ear scratches and string toys. Early in life, I suffered an injury to my backside, which severed many nerves endings and made me mildly incontinent. I don’t have many accidents at all. Maybe once every few weeks, and I do try to make it by the litterbox, so my condition is manageable. I also don’t do the best with very young children. I’ve been looking for a forever home for a whole entire year now. Can you make 2023 the best year ever for me? ♥
►Arrr, it’s Captain Bialy, sailing seas and stealing hearts. I'm a very sweet and affectionate privateer, but I need to trust you first. I like to rest on laps, chase the laser pointer, and gobble treats. I've been looking for my forever home for over 10-months! I get along very well with other cats. Do you have room for this girl to plunder your heart forever? If so, please reach out to All 4 Cats to meet me in my foster home. ♥
◄We are brother and sister and were abandoned at the shelter when we were only 5-months-old. We’ve always only had each other, so we are very bonded and must be adopted together. We do everything together: sleep, clean each other, and even sometimes eat out of the same bowl together. I’m Daylilly and I love to be held, and I’m very out-going, affectionate and adventurous. Carnation is my brother and he’s more shy and nervous, so I protect him. He needs someone patient who will be willing to work with him until he comes out of his shell. He loves tummy rubs! Just wait and see the kitty he’ll blossom into. Both of us love to sleep with you and would do best in a calmer environment with no small children. ♥
►Tunnels and cuddles! That’s all this girl needs. My name is Virtue and I am a 7-year-old girl who plays hard and loves hard. Watching me pop in and out of my tunnels will put a huge smile on your face. I am a major snuggler, and will be on your lap watching tv with you all the time. I love to sleep on or next to you as well. I do have boundaries and do not get along with small children and other animals, so I must be an only pet. But if you’ve had cats before and you’re lonely, there’s no better companion than me! Message us today to set an appointment to meet me in my foster home! ♥
►My name Is Yuki and I am a 2-year-old Tuxedo girl. I’m very affectionate and I crave human interaction. Though I am a bit bashful at first, once I blossom, I am so loving and affectionate and always want to be around you. I do well with dogs and cats, but I would be ok by myself, too. If you have some mice toys and some love to give, I am your girl. Oh, and treats, you must have treats too ;) ♥
►Hello! My name is Miss Fabulous and I am 2-years-old, spayed, FeLV negative, microchipped, and vaccinated. I LOVE attention and always want to be loved on. I do great with children and other cats, too! I haven't been around dogs, but I think I can be friends with a doggo as long as I’m introduced slowly. I am on a special diet and need portion control. ♥

Attention Small Dog Lovers! We are a brother and sister duo named Fawn and Trouble
We are just 2½-years-old and only 17 to 20 cuddly pounds. We are healthy, spayed / neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and take monthly flea / tick and heartworm preventions. While we might be shy or anxious at first meeting, just give us a little time and we’ll warm right up. We do bark at the cars and are protective with visitors but we are okay walking to enjoy a nice stroll around the neighborhood. Car rides aren’t exactly our favorite pastime but we don’t mind it when going to the park or veterinarian. If you get us excited about the squirrels in the backyard, we’ll run around the yard and be goofy. We are sweet, loving and fun dogs that you just have to meet. It is required that we’re adopted together and that you have a securely fenced yard. We are house-trained and need a home with no other pets or kids. We also know the following commands: sit, paw and come. If you would like to know more about us, arrange a meet and greet or know how to adopt a bonded pair of adorable pups, please call Sandi at 910-338-7254.
Could I be your Valentine? My name is Skeeter and I’m the sweetest young boy with creamy orange fur, so buttery soft. You’ll love to pet me and I’ll just melt at your touch. I enjoy meeting new people and I also get along well with other cats. I’m a playful fellow, too, and have been known to chase the laser light all around the room! My sister and I came to the shelter several months ago. She has found her forever home and I am more than ready to find mine. At 11-months-old, I’m neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and litterbox-trained. Come scoop me up in your arms and let’s fall in love! You’ll find me at Pender County Humane Society in Burgaw.

◄At 21 pounds, I’m the perfect travel mate! The name’s Lula and I’m a great 1-year-old girl who fits well in any lap! I fit easily in a car, too, and can sniff out adventure anywhere I go. I love to play with toys and think my dog bed is the best invention ever. When I’m not playing with my friends, I love to sunbathe and give big sloppy kisses of appreciation. I am ready to be your side kick! ♥
◄Olaf here! I’m just a baby boy at 10-months of age and 36 pounds. My body hasn’t caught up with my legs yet, so I’m just one big loveable goof ball when I’m frolicking around the play yard with my friends. Fetch is my favorite game in the entire world and I just love all kinds of toys. I sure would love to have a home I can call my own! Please come out for a visit - you don’t need an appointment! ♥ ◄Smooth, strong, and full of spirit… Whiskey is the perfect name for me! At 1-year-old, I’m a handsome Lab and Hound mix who is happy, fun and always on the move. The nice people at Paws Place tell me that once I complete my heartworm treatment, I’ll be able to run and jump, jump, JUMP for joy off leash in (hopefully) my very own backyard. Wow, I could tippy-tap with excitement at the thought! So let’s get this show on the road. Can you point me in the direction of my forever family? I know they won’t be able to resist me! ♥
◄Wishbone here! I’m super-smart for a 1-year-old and know basic commands. If cuddling, snuggling, playing fetch, sunbathing, and leisurely walks are your thing, we are destined to be soul mates! I wouldn’t mind a furry sibling and I’d prefer an adult-only home with a fenced in yard. At 66 pounds, I’m a Saint Bernard and Great Pyrenees mix who walks well on a leash and is food motivated. Do you have room in your heart for me? ♥
►I’m one of eight puppies available for adoption and my name is Snap Dragon! I am the largest of the litter, but I am also the sweetest. I am a playful boy who loves to hang out with my fur and human friends. I’m learning how to walk on a leash and am having so much fun. I’m THE BEST cuddle buddy ever and I’m waiting for you! ♥
◄At just 19 pounds and 5-years-old, I’m a small boy who is quite the catch! My name is Bones and I know basic commands, I walk well on a leash, I love playing with toys and I love to snuggle and give kisses to the humans in my life! I’m a very wellbehaved lad who would love to be your companion on all kinds of adventures. Let’s meet up today! ♥

Hi, my name is Lilah. I’m a female Siberian Husky who is 1-yearold and 47 pounds. Everyone says I’m super nice and friendly and that I’m quite the looker. I am playful and affectionate, I love to cuddle and give kisses and I’m full of puppy energy. I will do best in a home with an active family so I get plenty of exercise and attention. I do love being with humans of all sizes and calm dogs. I am healthy, spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, crate-trained and leash-trained. I have slight vision loss due to an autoimmune disorder that Huskies are prone to. I’m on a treatment of eye drops and oral medications (that Furever Friends Animal Rescue will pay for) to correct the issue. No permanent damage or vision loss has been done! If you are interested in making me part of your family, please contact Furever Friends Animal Rescue at 910-617-3760 or send an email to email@example.com. Knowledge of the Husky breed is a plus. Hope to meet you soon!

Greetings, human! My name is Rayna and I’m a 3-yearold, 43 pound girl. My world was turned upside down, so I’m a little nervous and a tad shy since coming to Paws Place. I am starting to warm up to the nice humans who have been spending time with me. I have even found out what treats taste like...PURE HEAVEN! I am hoping to find my forever home, so here is my wish list: someone who can be patient with me, as adjusting to a new environment is a little scary; someone who is curious and adventurous, since I like to sniff around new places; and someone who is as loyal as me because I am a sensitive girl who can sniff out emotions. I always want my human to feel loved! You should know that I tested positive for heartworms, but the nice people here told me I’ve already started my treatment and will be heartworm free someday! I’d love to hang out and learn more about my potential forever home. So, whatever draws us together, I hope that it happens soon! Can’t wait to meet you and be able to feel snuggly and safe! The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 2pm, and no appointment is necessary. You can also call 910-845-7297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for info.

◄I’m a 1½-year-old boy named Squirtle! I’m very shy at first but once I bond with you my sweet personality blossoms and I’m extremely loving.

◄I’m the most adorable mini house panther ever! At 4-months-old, I’m a bundle of joy named Jack and I check all of the boxes.

▲We are Bastet and Ra, an 11-month-old brother and sister duo who would love to be adopted together. We are friendly, outgoing, and loveable.

►I’m Pikachu, a sweet 1½year-old boy who enjoys being petted. I have the softest brown and chocolate Tabby coat. I play with other cats and kittens and I don’t mind the dogs at my foster home. I’m shy at first and will initially hide if I don’t know you, but once I get acquainted, I appreciate lots of love and attention. Kitten season will be here soon and young adults like me often get overlooked. I’m so deserving of my own home. Won’t you give me a chance? Please call or text 910-599-2755 to meet me! ♥

My name is Mama Batts and this is my little daughter Battlet. I was rescued from an old abandoned boat and I had just delivered a litter of babies.

I am the sweetest big boy ever. I look like a Maine Coon mix. I was attacked by a coyote and almost lost my front leg, but luckily FURR rescued me and I am all healed up and back to normal. I'm still a little shy, but I love everybody and I get along with ALL the FURR rescue cats, too.
I like fish! I was rescued at a fish production plant where I was trying to survive. The volunteers call me "Roughy" and I am gorgeous. My fur is long and orange and my eyes are beautiful. I’m a little shy around new people, but if you give me a chance, it will be well worth it to have a sweet kitty like me. I have siblings who were also rescued (if you decide you want two kitties). I am a kind soul and I get along great with all the other cats here. I am 1-year-old and want to make you happy.
I’m a short-haired girl with beautiful silky gray and white fur. I have been fully vetted and I’m ready to move in with you. I’ve been microchipped, I’ve already spayed, I’m current on vaccinations, and I come with my own collar and tag and toys. Come meet me soon! I love to cuddle and I love to have fun and play!
I cannot believe I am STILL without a forever home. I am a tiny girl and other cats outweigh and outnumber me. I need someone to hold me and love me because I feel secure being close to someone. I get along great with other kitties and the volunteers think that I am super special. If you are looking for the sweetest little girl, you should come visit me. I am very soft and just don't have a mean bone in my little body. I am only a little over a year old, but I won't get much bigger. I am petite with a huge, gentle heart. Take me home with you.
We’re freakin' adorable black kittens who are extremely friendly because we have been handled since birth by our rescue. We’re funny and playful little ones (two boys) who will keep you entertained for hours. Once play time is over, it’s cuddle time and boy, do we love to cuddle. All of our vet work is included with our adoption fees! Don't wait too long because we’re eager to love you. Adopt one or both of us.

I am VERY unusual and beautiful with my long soft black hair and stunning SILVER mane! I was just recently rescued by FURR and I'm learning to trust that people are good and can be nice. I just need a quiet household and plenty of snuggle time. I have a sister here at the shelter - in case you want to adopt a pair of kitties, I hope you’ll decide to take us both.

CAROLINA BASSET HOUND RESCUE
My name is Bathsheba (quite a royal name, don’t you think?), but my foster family has started calling me Daisy. I am a beautiful Basset Hound who is fully potty trained. I was an outdoor dog when I came in, but I love the good life indoors. I am very energetic and might be even younger than my estimated age of 7, according to the vet. I currently prefer women, but I am starting to be more comfortable around my gentle foster family (including the men). They are helping me work on my socialization and I am making very good progress. Even though I love to play, I also will settle down. I’m learning to understand what the people are asking me to do. I’m looking for the right family who is patient and wants to spend with me. I am learning to go to the toy basket when I need to find something to chomp on. If you are interested in adopting me or another Basset, call 888-909-2387 or visit us online at www.cbhr.com. ♥
Hi, my name is Lego and I am a 7-year-old, neutered male Great Dane who came into rescue when my previous owners got a divorce. I am house-trained and crate-trained but I am also trustworthy without a crate. I ride great in the car, I’m great with kids, and I love playing with toys. I am a huge lover and very affectionate! I love to run and roll in the grass, too. I know commands like: stay, place, down, and come. I am good with other dogs but I get very excited meeting friends while on a leash, so I require slow introductions. My foster family is working with me on my leash manners and think it will be best if I go to a family who will continue to work with me on these tasks. At 170 pounds, I need a strong and confident owner with previous giant breed experience and a fenced in yard. I’m great as an only dog or in a home with a confident female companion who can match my energy and play level. To adopt me, please email Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love at email@example.com or call 704-584-9257. Our approval process consists of an adoption application, vet and reference checks, a phone interview, and a home visit. Please note that we require adopters to have a fenced in yard.

CAROLINA BOXER RESCUE
Hi, my name is Tonks! I’m a friendly and loyal Boxer boy who wants to find a forever family, but first, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
Favorite Toy: anything stuffed, furry or food-filled Favorite Place: the couch Favorite Snack: anything that I’m given. I’m not picky!
Favorite Game: catching treats in my mouth.
Favorite Person: anyone who gives me attention.
I am a laid-back guy who likes to hang out and watch TV with my foster dad. Don’t worry though, I don’t hog the furniture! When he’s at work, I just relax in one of the bedrooms and snooze on a comfy dog bed. I’m well-behaved and housetrained so there’s no need for me to be crated. I also like to hang out in the backyard and go for walks. Although I may have been a wild man in my younger years, at 6-years-old
I now have just the right mix of energy and calmness. I’m the best of both worlds! In fact, I’d be okay just going for walks if my forever family doesn’t have a fenced yard.
I LOVE meeting new people! I haven’t met a person that didn’t become my BFF in 2 minutes. As for dogs, I am currently the only dog in my foster home, so I’ve gotten used to not having to share things (I mean, don’t all only children have this problem?). Because of this, if you have other dogs, you’ll want to give us our own spaces for eating and bone-chewing. I’m healthy, medium-sized, super-smart and know several commands. I also know how to fetch (though sometimes I turn it into a fun game of chase). I can’t wait for you to teach me new things! To you, my future family, thank you for considering a spunky and handsome, middle-aged guy with a million-dollar smile. To adopt me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 910-799-5638, or visit www.carolinaboxerrescue.org. ♥
RUSSELL RESCUE OF THE CAROLINAS
I’m a sweet little lady named Zoey and I’ve spent a whole year looking for you. I waddle like I am ancient but the vet says I’m just 6 to 7-years-old. I have some early onset arthritis, but Adequan injections have changed my life! I love playing with my toys, visiting with my fur friends, watching squirrels run around on the back deck, and being with my humans. I enjoy going on walks and taking car rides to meet up for playdates with my canine friends. My foster parents adore me and want the best for me. I tend to get snarky when it comes to the vet, ear cleaning, and taking meds, so I’d like a patient and understanding human.

GREAT DANE FRIENDS OF RUFF LOVE
Jeanne Taylor Photography / Pet Portraits
My name is Cash
Prior to being rescued, I was literally starving but just look how handsome I am with some meat on my bones. I went to the doctor and she told my foster parents that everything is great! No worms anywhere!
My shots are up to date and I am neutered. I'm about 4-years-old but I have the energy of a much younger pup. I guess that’s because I couldn't run around a lot and was stuck in a crate all the time. Since I didn't get to eat much, I do protect my food. My people said that I have enough love for humans that I don't need to have a fur brother or sister. I do like to play with bigger dogs, but I would just rather have my humans all to myself! I like humans of all sizes but the bigger ones are best so I don't knock them down by accident. I love having a fenced yard so I can do my zoomies and I really have fun on long walks (helps me with my energy).
I LOVE riding in a car and smelling everything - that's so much fun. To meet me, please let my people know. Call Freedom Bridge Animal Rescue NC at 843-614-0231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am sponsored by Cindy Meyers in loving memory of Harley, Murphy and Sophie.
This could be the happy face that greets you every morning! My name is Poncho (A460524)
and I’m a 4-year-old Pit Bull boy, already neutered. I am happy, goofy, silly, friendly, and when I wag my tail my whole
body wiggles. I absolutely love toys that make noise, so a few of those in my new home would be great. The staff say I see myself as the ’Walmart Greeter’ of the shelter because I want to say hello to everyone. They also say I’ve been a fantastic dog with all the people here. I’m food motivated and I love my doggie bed, too! If your dog needs a playmate, please bring him or her to the shelter to meet me. I’m at New Hanover Sheriff's Office Animal Services Unit and adoption hours are Monday through Friday from 11am to 3:30pm and on Saturday from 8am to 11:30am. For more information, call 910-798-7500.

◄Hey there, I’m a darling girl named Riley! I recently celebrated my first birthday on November 25, 2022. Poor me, I’ve been bounced around in four different places in my first year of life, and I’m ready to settle down in my forever home! I am a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, black and white in color, and I’m already spayed and up to date on vaccines. I sure do hope that 2023 will be the best year ever with my new family! ♥

◄Hello there, my name is Dusty! I’m a 2-year-old Weimaraner mix boy who is very sweet and a total people pleaser. I listen to commands, I walk well on a leash, I’m very playful and also housetrained! I’m up to date on my shots, microchipped, negative for heartworms and neutered. Won’t you please come visit me at the shelter? I’d love to tell you even more about me! ♥
►If you’ve been looking for a loving and friendly cat duo to adopt, you’re in luck! We are Pocky and Hibiscus, a couple of sweethearts in need of a new home.
◄It’s a mystery how a sweetheart like me was found going in and out of traffic in Pender County, but thankfully I was rescued so that I can be your sweet baby girl! My name is Lila and I’m a 6-year-old Hound mix who is feeling happy and healthy now that I’m in good hands at the shelter. All I want is to be loved! If all you want is to be loved as well, please come over and meet me! ♥ ►Hi there! I’m a gorgeous 6-year-old Redbone Coonhound mix named Dixie! I’ve had some rotten luck lately - I’ve been adopted twice and returned through no fault of my own, due to my owners no longer being able to take care of me. This could be good news for you, though, because I’m a very sweet girl who loves people. If you’re in need of a best friend, I’m right here! I’m in great health and ready to go home, so please hurry over today. ♥
We were surrendered to the shelter due to family allergies, which is a real shame because we’re great familiy cats! I’m Pockey, the black and white boy, and Hibiscus is an orange and white Tabby boy. We are 2-years-old, neutered, vaccinated, litterbox-trained and ready to go! ♥
◄▲We are Misty and Maggie and we’ve been at the shelter since May 2021! I’m Misty, the black beauty, and Maggie is a lovely Tabby girl. We’ve grown up together and would love to be adopted as a pair, but we can also be adopted separately. At just 2-years-old, we’re very playful and enjoy all kinds of toys, especially that hard-to-catch laser light! We are even OK with dogs! We’re spayed, vaccinated, litterbox-trained, microchipped and in great health. Please come meet us! ♥

Helloooooo nice person! I’m Gouda! Nice to meet you. You say you’re looking for a dog? That’s amazing! Because I am a dog! You say you knew that? That you came here to Paws Place looking for ME? Oh, yippee! Well, since you are here let me tell you a little bit about myself. As you can see, I am your typical bubbly, energetic 3-year-old boy! I love to play, I know basic commands, I walk well on a leash, I enjoy giving kisses, and I make a great adventure buddy, too. I often dream of my future and hope to spend time with my new family hanging in the backyard, going on hikes in the woods or taking long strolls through the neighborhood, then plopping all 60 pounds of me down on the couch with you for some snuggles. I even heard there are dog friendly beaches nearby! Oh, how I dream of my ears flopping around in the wind while I run on the beach. And did I mention how much I love people? I am quite the social butterfly here at Paws Place. I can’t wait to hear about you and our future adventures, so come visit me at the shelter! It’s open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 2pm, and no appointment is necessary. Call 910-845-7297 or email email@example.com for more info.

I’m such a happy and friendly girl and all I’m looking for is love and attention. If you adopt me, I’ll be sure to lavish love and attention on you, too! I’m a mixed-breed darling, just 2-years-old and already spayed. The staff say I am so sweet and that I grow attached to humans very easily. I am food-motivated, but mostly I just want to hang out and be with people. I like toys that make noise and I would love some Kong toys in my new home, too. If you already have a dog, please bring him or her to the shelter so we can meet! I’m at New Hanover Sheriff's Office Animal Services Unit in Wilmington. Adoption hours are Monday through Friday from 11am to 3:30pm and on Saturday from 8am to 11:30am. For more information, call 910-798-7500. See you soon!

In the middle is Bosco, a boy, and on the far right is Frankie, another boy. We three siblings can be adopted separately, as a pair, or as a trio. At 9-months-old, we have laid-back approaches to life and well-adjusted, confident personalities. We’ll never hide under the bed; we want to be out and about with the family!

If you’re looking for love just like I am, maybe we can fall in love with each other? My name is Tyson (A379571) and I’m a 7year-old Lab mix boy who came to the shelter in sad shape on December 6. I was very skinny, I was troubled by fleas and ticks, my ears were infected and I just didn’t feel good. Fast forward to today and I’m oh-so-much better! I’ve gained weight, I’m on flea medication and I’ve finished my round of antibiotics. Overall, I’m a laid-back boy who is VERY food motivated and I take treats very easily. All I want is affection and attention from someone who loves me. I’ll love you right back! I’m at New Hanover Sheriff's Office Animal Services Unit and adoption hours are Monday through Friday from 11am to 3:30pm and on Saturday from 8am to 11:30am.

◄▼Hello! I’m Otis, a 5-month-old black and white Manx mix. This is my friend, Olive She’s a 5-month-old Tabby. Everybody
thinks she is my sister but I’m almost 3-weeks older than she is. We never even met until we both went to the same foster home. We get along well and we play together but we don’t need to be adopted together. We just want to be adopted! ♥
◄With my colorful ringed tail and Tabby patches, I’m almost as unique as I am playful. If you come to meet me, I promise you won’t be able to resist my cute face! My name is Moxie. I’m 6-months-old and after we get tired from playing, all I want is a fuzzy bed by the window or a spot on the couch to watch TV with you. We can watch The Cat Whisperer and Too Cute together. ♥
►I have a little bit of scarring from a long gone infection in one eye, but I can still see an amazing adoption in my future! My name is Whisper. I was found on the side of a road and nursed back to health. Now I’m a sleek, shiny, beautiful black kitten who loves attention, especially head scratches, and I’m ready to find a new family. ♥
►Hello, I’m Ripley, a 6-month-old black and white boy. I am sooo sweet that you just won’t believe it. I love attention - just can’t get enough of it. I’m so gentle that I don’t even use my claws when I make biscuits, and I love to make biscuits. I’m dressed to impress in my nice tuxedo coat and, since I’m the last one here from my litter, I’m really excited to be adopted and move to a new home. ♥
►You can barely hear me meow, but trust me when I say that I make my presence known. Jumping, hopping, twisting , turning, even flips - I do it all. Forget TV, give me a box and I’ll be your entertainer.
I am Chantilly, a 3-month-old Calico with loads of personality. Even though I have a wild side, I also love to curl up on laps and spend some quality time relaxing. ♥
◄▲I’m Jingle (pictured on the left) and I’m a Calico girl. Pictured to the right of me is my brother, Jolly Did you know that only about one in three thousand Calicos are males? That’s why he doesn’t share my brown patches. However, we do share our loud purrs and love of toys. As you can tell from our names, we were supposed to be ready for adoption at Christmas time, but we weren’t big enough. Now we’re hoping Valentine’s Day will be our lucky day! ♥

I’m Jelly Bean, a gorgeous buckskin blonde Weimaraner and Labrador mix girl seeking companionship. At 5-years-old and 60 pounds, I am at the peak of my prime...full of beauty and vitality. Sadly, such youth and beauty are wasted sitting alone in a kennel, the same kennel that has been my home for over 2-years. With more to offer than just a pretty face and intelligence, I’m looking to match with someone who will enjoy seeing me reach my full potential. I’m undeniably awesome, and I love being the center of attention, because in fact, the world DOES revolve around me (duh). I’d prefer to be your only pet, although with proper time and energy I might be persuaded otherwise. I dream of long walks (or runs) down the beaches or up the mountains or anywhere but the shelter, which has always been my only home. Like all of us, I have dreams and potential. Dreams so big that not even the cold concrete of the kennel can squash. My life was never meant to be this way and I know it in my core. Surely somewhere, someone reading this knows it, too. Maybe you’re missing something...perhaps it is a Jelly Bean. Please call or text Sean with A Shelter Friend at 910-918-5118, visit us at www.AShelterFriend.org or on Facebook.

►Hi, my name is Aspen! I am a 6-year-old Flame Point Siamese kitty cat. I am gorgeous with my ‘Frank Sinatra’ blue eyes. I do ok with cats, ok with dogs and I am pretty chill. I love to sit next to you on the couch and even make biscuits. I need no time to adjust at all. I literally move in, fit in and make myself right at home. I am FIV positive. That means ideally I would get adopted into a home with other FIV positive cats or live as an only cat. I am otherwise healthy and deserve a loving home. Google FIV to learn more about my condition and to see that MANY cats are living long, normal lives. If you would like to meet me, please call Jill at 910-620-3783. Please give me a chance or tell your friends about me because I just need to find that ONE person out there looking for me. ♥
◄My name is Loki! I am a 10 pound Shih Tzu mix and I am only 1-year-old. I had my jaw broken twice by another dog and was surrendered to the emergency animal hospital who reached out to Adopt-An-ANGEL for help. The doctor had to wire my jaw shut and I could only eat liquid food. I am now in a loving foster home and on the mend! I am a sweet, loving, and energetic boy. Because of my age and special needs, I am recommended for a young active family with children over 10. I am neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped. If you have questions or want to meet me, contact my foster mom, Sue, at 910-760-4522. If you’re able to contribute to my $2400 hospital bill, please donate at www.adoptanangel.net or mail a check to AdoptAn-ANGEL, P.O. Box 15095, Wilmington, NC 28408. ♥
►My name is Vinnie and I am absolutely wonderful. I am really affectionate and loving. I am also the ultimate lap cat. I will follow you around like a dog and I love to get all cozy, as you can see in my picture. I do well with other cats and kids, but have not been around a dog lately. If you are looking for a great cat, please call Jill at 910-620-3783 to meet me. ♥
►My name is Violet and I am a 2-year-old Pug and Terrier mix with a lot of puppy left in me. I am about 30 pounds, so I am a smaller lady. I love playing with toys and getting attention from my people. I most likely have to be an only dog as I show strong resource guarding tendencies towards other dogs with toys. I seem to do well with people of all ages and would be a great companion / Lap Dog for someone who is home a lot. I am an active dog who loves walks, but I am also happy to cuddle with you on the couch. I am spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped. If you have any questions feel free to contact Sherry at 910-523-1254 or Jill at 910-620-3783. ♥
►My name is Barbie and I am the sweetest girl! I am chatty and friendly. I am 2 to 3-years-old and have been homeless all summer long. It is tough competing with all these cute kittens. I would love a quiet home where I can be the only pet. I do ok with other animals, but I would prefer to be a pampered, special only-pet (if I could get my ideal home). Please call Jill at 910-620-3783 to meet me. ♥
I love treats and having my head scratched. My hobby is swishing my tail. I was a wonderful mother cat and now that
my kittens have been adopted, I'm ready for a wonderful home of my own. My name is Maria and I have shiny, soft, black fur. Please come out and meet me at Pet Supermarket (3908 Oleander Drive in Wilmington). You may also call Jill at 910-620-3783 for more information. ♥

Hi there! I’m Cinnamon!
I am a lowkey, chill, and shy kind of gal. At almost 3-years-old and 43 pounds, I am learning my way around Paws Place and realizing that there are kind humans in this scary world.
I had a rough start to life and have the scars to prove it. The humans at Paws Place don’t think I was socialized much (with people), so I would love to meet your fur babies and learn how to be a happy-go-lucky pup from them! I’d prefer a human who can provide supportive leadership and help me get settled into a routine, too. All in all, I am a laid-back wannabe snuggle bug who is super reserved, but I have been dreaming of the perfect home and family. I hope that you will come out and visit me soon! Paws Place is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 2pm and no appointment is necessary. You can also call 910-845-7297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on adopting me.
I am sponsored in honor of all the people who lovingly care for the dogs at Paws Place.

▲I’m a beautiful striped Tabby girl who arrived at the shelter just a few days after Christmas! When will my new family arrive? I’m just 1-year-old and ready to enjoy life with you. My ID number is A049152. Hurry! ♥
Four score and three years ago I was brought into this world as sweet Abraham Winkin. My life didn’t start out the greatest and unfortunately I ended up in the shelter with heartworm disease and severe entropion. Luckily both of my medical issues have been corrected and now you will only catch me “winkin” for a treat, thanks to C.A.R.E. My manners aren’t the greatest but my friends here have been teaching me how to be the best behaved gentleman around. I will need a house with structure to help me keep up with my manners. I am friendly with other dogs and cats but will require a small amount of time for adjustment to get used to my new furry friends! I am just a loveable, big headed American Bully looking for my forever home. Please come rescue me! Call 910-256-2624 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s set a date to meet!

I am spayed, up to date on vaccines and of course I’m great in the litterbox. They tell me I’m about 8-years-old, but you know what I say - age is just a number! I feel great, I look beautiful, and I hope to make your acquaintance soon! ♥
◄Oh no, I’ve heard you have puppy fever! Lucky for you, I’ve got just the cure. My name is Boone and I’m a 21-week-old Hound mix boy, already neutered and ready to go home! I’m playful and sweet and will likely be a medium size dog, in the range of 35 to 45 pounds when fully grown. I’m new to the shelter, but I hope I will have a short stay here on my way to my loving, forever family! ♥
◄I’m a new arrival at the shelter and my name is Benny! Everyone says I’m settling in nicely. At 2-years-old, I’m a Lab mix boy, 58 pounds and already neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. I’m so eager to find my forever home with a family who will love me and help me be the ’best dog’ I can be! So what do you say? Hop on in the car and come visit me today. I’ll take you for a tour around the play yard and show you the most exciting toys. ♥
The shelter is currently open Monday through Friday from 10am to 2pm and closed on Saturday and Sunday.

I love to play in the shelter’s fenced exercise yard, so come meet me there! ♥

I enjoy naps in the sun and movies on the couch. My name is Franny and I'm a Beagle and Hound mix girl who loves playing with toys and going for walks, especially during beautiful sunny days! At 45 pounds and 9-years of age, I am already house-trained, leash-trained, spayed, vaccinated and heartworm free. I am longing for a home, with a fenced yard, where I can be an only dog. If you are allergic to cats, that's fantastic, because my ideal home wouldn't have felines. Please allow me to be your loyal companion. If you’d like to meet me, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Columbus Humane Society at 910-499-1194 and leave me a message. You can also visit the Friends of Columbus Humane Society Facebook page and send a message.
