We've got another orange tabby to share with you! Albany is a one year old girl who is small on size but is waiting to give a huge amount of love. She enjoys playing but is still a little shy right now and just needs a loving, devoted family to help her along. Will you be the one to help this little girl shine?
HAVE YOUR PEOPLE CALL MY PEOPLE . . .
And make an appointment to meet me! Hi everyone! My name is Amos and I'm a 2 year-old Retriever mix. I'm a very energetic and playful guy who's ready for a home of my very own! I love to be outside and to go for rides in the car! I make a great hiking buddy and I even learned something called urban mushing - kind of like being a sled dog but on pavement instead of snow - so cool! I have a really great team at DAWS who have been working really hard on my training. I'm incredibly smart - I know a bunch of verbal commands and am always working on something new. My ideal home would be with an experienced owner who really wants to work with me (no kids please). Please make an appointment to see me and the humans who know me best can give you the 411 on me!

SO, EXACTLY HOW LONG IS THIS SWIMSUIT SEASON?
Ugh, the end can't come soon enough! Diets are NO fun! Am I right? Hi everyone! My name is Bella and I'm a 4 year-old Labrador Retriever mix. I'm a sweet girl who was picked up as a stray in Kentucky. I'm pretty overweight so I'm on a diet to get back in shape and get healthy again. It's no fun but I know it's the best thing for me so I'll need my new family to help keep me on track! I can be a little grabby with treats but I'm working on it! I get a little nervous when I go to a new place but I just need a little extra patience and TLC until I feel comfortable. I love to be outside and go for walks - I'm pretty strong so I'm working on not pulling too hard on the leash!
Big Boy with a Big Heart! This wonderfully sweet eight year old senior cat came to us after his owner found out he is FIV+. It's not a death sentence, but he does have some additional medical issues since he was living outside for a little while. He's healing nicely and has a loving temperament. If you have a Big Heart like Big Boy, you'll be a match made in heaven!
Bora Bora is a petite black Tortoiseshell...will she be your island retreat? At one year old this sweet girl looks like she is half her age. She is still a little shy and a bit wary of her surroundings, but once you start petting her she purrs immediately and she absolutely loves belly rubs. We can already tell she will be a wonderfully sweet kittie, so come meet her today!
Bugs is in the house! This adorable girl is 13 years young and she came to us with her buddy Abigail Adams as their owner passed away. She's a little shy as she is getting used to her new surroundings, but we can tell already that she likes to be pet and she loves to play! Come and meet her today. Her and Abigail can be adopted together or separately.
Carlie is a shy but sweet little 3 month old girl who came to us with her brother, Simon. They are a bonded pair, so need to be adopted together. They are rarely apart right now, so Carlie wears a pretty little collar of flowers so you can tell her apart from her brother!
Come visit this duo...they're waiting for you to give them their "furever" home!
This 2 year old muted calico is just as sweet as can be! She loves attention and being pet. She is still a little bit shy of her surroundings, but is always welcoming of a hand to pet her or a toy to play with! Come visit her in person and you will fall in love!
Have a sweet tooth? We have the purrfect solution...Cookie! She is a gorgeous green-eyed Calico who is 7 years old. She was surrendered because her owner could no longer care for her. She loves napping on blankets, in baskets, and loves toy mice! She would need to be the only pet in the house. She is getting used to her new surroundings as every cat here does, but we can tell she is full of personality!
STOP AND SMELL THE DAFFODILS!
Why do the roses always get all the attention? The daffodils are just as pretty and smell just as good. Most of the time - HA! Hi everyone! My name is Daffodil and I'm a 2-1/2 year-old Mountain Cur mix. When I first came to DAWS, I had recently left my puppies and was pretty scared. I'm still really nervous around people I don't know but my four-legged friends really help my confidence! I really need to go to a home that has another dog - preferably one that's at least my size and really likes to play because I love it! I love playing with my toys and even just wrestling! I would do best in a quieter home with adults or possibly older children.
WHAT DO THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES POST ON INSTAGRAM?
Shelfies! Get it?? HA!! Hi everyone! My name is Daisy Mae and I'm a one year-old Hound/Beagle mix. I'm a super-adorable girl with lots of puppy energy! And lots of puppy teeth! HA! I'm very outgoing and I love making new friends! But I should warn you there's a chance I'll nibble on your chin if I get close enough! I know - something that is definatelyfrowned upon so I'm working on it! I like to jump when I get excited but once I calm down I'm very attentive and try really hard to do whatever you're asking me to! I'm looking for a family with adults or tweens who will help me get the training and exercise I need!
This adorable boy is Fiji! He is 2 years old and is a little shy as he is getting used to his new surroundings. The staff and volunteers are working with him and he is a sweet boy :) He will need a quiet home with patient adopters that will let him come out of his shell at his own pace.
WHY DID THE CELL PHONE NEEDE GLASSES?
Because it lost all its contacts! Get it? HA! Hi everyone! My name is Fritz and I'm a one year-old Feist mix. A feist is actually a kind of hunting dog but the only thing this guy goes hunting for is hot dogs! I'm a super-sweet and shy guy from Kentucky. Right now there are lots of things that make me nervous like new people and loud noises, but you know what always makes me feel better? Another dog! I love other dogs and my new four-legged friends really help me feel more comfortable. My friends at DAWS think it would be a good idea if my new home already has a dog for me to be friends with! All I need is a little patience and extra TLC to be the best Fritz I can be!
Just get me a little doggy seat and some 'doggies' and I'm ready to go! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Harley and I'm a 6 year-old Dachsund/Beagle mix. I'm a super-sweet mom who came all the way from Kentucky with her puppies. They are just about old enough for their own homes so now It's my turn too! I may have some gray on my face but I still have plenty of spring in my step! I love being outside and going for walks where I can sniff all of the wonderful smells out there! Well, not all of them are wonderful, right? HA! I absolutely love food and sometimes I forget myself and get a little grabby when I'm offered a treat - whoops ! But I do know how to Sit and will gladly do that if you'll share the hot dog you're munching on!
This little movie star is looking for his forever home! With his gorgeous, soft black fur and gold eyes, he will be the star of the family. He is a little shy as he is getting used to his new surroundings, but when you approach him gently you will see he loves to give head butts! Hollywood is 2 years old and is very sweet. Stop by and meet this cutie today!
ALOHA! Honolulu is ready to charm you with her golden eyes and grey coat. She is a beautiful one year old girl that is both sweet and curious. We included a "selfie" shot of her up close and personal! She's eager to find her forever home - will you be the one to take home this island beauty?
Action Jackson is ready for his queue! He's a very dapper 2 year old gentleman who is waiting for his big break. Will you let him star in the movie of your life?! We know you'll give him rave reviews...maybe even give him an Oscar?! He's FIV+ so you'll need to keep him inside, and as long as you feed him well and keep his check-ups up to date, he can live as long as a non-FIV+ cat.
SO I HEAR YOU HAVE TREATS IN YOUR POCKET...
I also hear that they're all for me! Am I right? YES!!! Hi everyone! My name is Julie and I'm a one year-old Mountain Cur mix. I'm a very energetic and active girl who loves to run! I love to be outside and sniff and I like to chase squeaky toys (although I'm still new at the whole 'fetch' thing). Food is probably my favorite thing and I do tend to gobble treats when I get really excited! I'm working on it but watch your fingers because I'm still learning. I love hanging out with people too and sometimes I jump when I get really excited! But I do respond well to corrections and being food-motivated will definately help me want to learn my manners! So who wants to teach me??
MY EYEBROWS ARE UP FOR ONE READON ONLY...
Is there cheese on that burger and if so, can I please have some? Come on, look how cute I am, you can't say no to this face! Hi everyone! My name is Lizzy and I'm a 3 year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix. I'm a super-adorable girl who came to DAWS all the way from Kentucky! I used to have a home of my own but my family couldn't take care of me anymore so here I am. But I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl so I'm taking it all in stride. I'm a bit of an independent woman - don't get me wrong because I do love people, but I like to do my own thing sometimes too. I get along great with other dogs and love playing with them! And did I mention that I also love cheeseburgers?
This sweet two and a half year old girl has the most beautiful black with gray undertone coat that will remind you of a misty morning. Misty is an affectionate and energetic kitty that needs a forever home with no dogs and can't wait to meet you!
THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER
On the other side of the fence! Trust me, I climbed over to see for myself! Hi everyone! My name is Molly and I'm a 3 year-old Hound mix And unfortunately, my family didn't see my fence climbing skills as a good thing so off to the shelter I went. But that's okay because now I'm here in Connecticut and there is a serious Hound shortage around here! I'm one of the sweetest girls you'll ever meet! I love food and my nose will always find it, especially those crumbs you didn't see fall on the floor. No worries - I'll take care of them! I love other dogs and I love to play! I've got long legs and I love to run - a fenced yard or a dog part nearby would be awesome ! I'm an energetic girl - let's go outside and play!
Princess is DAWS royalty! She is a large, adorable 2 year old Calico with a tiny little voice who was surrendered because her owner had too many kitties. Princess is very sweet, friendly and loves to play! She's a fairy tail come true!
Who knew Rachel would end up with Chandler!! We thought she loved Ross...:-) Rachel is a big, loveable 7 year old female Tuxedo! She's affectionate, loves to snuggle and is very round! She came to us with her buddy, Chandler. Either one...or BOTH!...would make a wonderful addition(s) to your family.
WHY ARE COMPUTERS SO SMART?
Because they listen to their motherboards! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Sadie and I'm a 3 year-old Terrier mix. And this mom has taught her puppies all the important things in life - how to make sad eyes to get treats and how to put your ears up like you;re listening when you're realyl thinking about treats! They are almost ready for their own homes so now it's my turn! I'm a super sweet (and skinny) girl who absolutely loves people and food! Possibly in that order! I love to be outside and go for walks! I also love to run and play with other dogs - if you have one at home already maybe they can play with me and help me get my pre-puppy body back! HA!
Simon is already a handsome young man at only 3 months old! Simon was rescued with his sister, Carlie, and is the more outgoing of this musical duo. They are a bonded pair, so need to be adopted together. Bet you won't be able to resist this brother & sister pair!
Smudge is a 2 year old sweet girl who was rescued and is now looking for a home. She is extremely affectionate and soaks up any bit of attention she can get! There was a chance she had FeLV so she is in foster care. She's tested negative a few times but we have to test her again in a few months. If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time.

WELL HOWDY MA'AM!
If I had a real Stetson I'd be tipping it right now! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Stetson and I'm a 5 year-old Hound mix. I'm a sweet Southern gentleman from West Virginia who's taking a stab at being a Northerner! I've lived most of my 5 years on a chain and I'm totally ready to have a home where I actually get to go inside! Luckily, I've been in a foster home for a little while so I'm getting used to living in a house. I love food and I may or may not surf your counters (it's only fair that I warn you!) I'm a moderately active guy but I'm not super interested in toys. But I do love to be outside - going for walks running around in the yard and letting my nose take me where it wants to go! I love people and other dogs!
Sunny is a very friendly 7 year boy who came to the shelter with his brother Smokey, who has already been adopted. Sunny greets every cat and human that walks into the room! He has the softest fur, sweetest face, and loves to relax and play. He enjoys being pet so much, that he has been known to drool! (-:
If you're looking for a friendly companion, look no further!
Have you had your Sunny D this morning? Well, once you see this girl, you are going to want to drink her up!!
This beautiful one year old has the softest fur and the prettiest eyes. She has a sweet personality to match and loves to be pet.
She would do best in a quiet home without children. Come visit Sunny D and she will brighten your day!
I'LL BE YOUR SUPEHERO!
I don't even need the cape or the hammer - I'm pretty awesome without the props! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Thor and I'm a 10 month-old Austrailian Cattle Dog mix. My brother Theo and I were picked up as strays in Kentucky and we definately used to have a home (we're a little on the chubby side!) I'm kind of a big bundle of nerves right now - everyone at DAWS is really nice but I'm still getting used to things. I really want to interact with people but sometimes it makes me a little nervous and my tail might tuck and my legs shake a little. I'm looking for a family with dog experience who will do training to help me build my confidence. Older kids only please and I hope I won't have to stay home alone too long!
CATS ARE FROM MARS, DOGS ARE FROM...
You guessed it - Venus! Let's face it, cats are just plain weird sometimes, everyone knows it! Hi everyone! My name is Venus and I'm a 3 year-old Catahoula Leopard mix. Now I'm not from Catahoula nor am I a leopard but we'll go with it! I'm a super-sweet and spotted girl who's actually from Kentucky. I was picked up as a stray down there so I'm not used to all of the hugs and kisses everyone keeps trying to give me (I know, what a problem to have, right?). I like getting pets and everything but I'm one of those 'less is more' kind of dogs. I really like other dogs though and am having a blast playing with my new friends here at DAWS!
This handsome boy with the gorgeous green eyes is Woody! He's 3 years old and was so excited to get his pictures taken he barely stood still :) With his cute face and soft fur, he'll capture your heart. Plus he's sweet and loves lots of pets! What more could you ask for?
