Okay, so we ran out of names for our Addams Family kittens so here we have Adam Addams! Kind of redundant, but he's twice the fun and playfulness so it very appropriate! He's an adorable little guy who would love a cuddly family to welcome him home before the holidays!
Adam is a 6 year old who's been around the block for a while! He's ready to settle down in a nice home and get plenty of affection and playtime. He's happy to be loved up at DAWS right now, but would really love to start the new year in his forever home.
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?
.Ariel may only be a year old but she has the wrinkles or should we say laugh lines of a happy girl! This terrier mix has everything but a place to call her own. Ask to see her so she can show off her wrinkles!!!
This beautiful goddess is Athena! She was found as a stray and is quickly winning the hearts of everyone. She is approximately 2 years old and loves to be pet. She has striking black, grey and white markings with the prettiest little face. Athena will probably do best without other cats, but that just means she can give you her undivided attention and love - come visit her today!
No one puts Baby in a corner! Baby is an adorable 5 year old girl who loves lots of pets and cuddles! She will lean up into your had and enjoy every rub. Unfortunately her previous owners couldn't keep her, so she is here now and ready to find a loving forever home where she can to curl up on a warm blanket with her family!
ARE YOU READY FOR SWIMSUIT SEASON? Me neither! Good thing it's only November! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Bella and I'm a 4 year-old Retriever mix. I came up to DAWS all the way from Kentucky and got right to work getting back in shape! I love to be outside! I go for walks and even sometimes hikes with the volunteers and some of the other dogs, it's so much fun! I also love to play fetch in the yard! My two-legged friends play training games with me and I've learned so many things. I love food (obviously!) and I love to train so I know I can learn a lot more! Are you ready to be my new personal trainer??
Big Boy is a big love! This wonderfully sweet and handsome eight year old cat came to us through owner surrender. Big Boy lived outside for a while but now enjoys resting in the warmth of a cozy bed. That's a good thing because his former outdoor lifestyle resulted in him contracting FIV. But don't worry! Big Boy's health is improving as is evident through his playful manner and affectionate temperament. If your heart is as BIG as Big Boy's we think you'll be a great match!
Boe is half of the Boe & Poe Show. They are sleek, handsome 5 year old brothers whose owner could no longer care for them. They are healthy, happy and affectionate. If you're looking for two sweet boys to accent your life, these bookends are the purrfect choice!
WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU CAN SEE ME? I thought I was good at hiding! My name may be Camo but I am anything but stealthy! Ha! I'm a sweet, 45 lb, 2 year old Southern gentleman from Kentucky looking for a home! I have tons of energy, so I would love an active family to play with me, take me for lots of walks, maybe the dog park... you get the picture! Sometimes I get a little bit too excited and might jump on you, but that's something we can work on together! I have a little trouble focusing on one thing at a time (there are so many AMAZING things to smell!) but once I settle down, I'm a big lovable mush and I love to give kisses. Do I sound like the perfect fit for your family? There's only one way to know for sure, come meet me!!
This is a southern fella who would love to be a part of an active family. Charlie is a retriever mix and is 8 months old.
She's a Chipa off the old blocka! This sweet girl would like nothing more than to curl up on a warm lap. She loves to talk and is very affectionate! She would be a great addition to any family :)
This pretty mama came to CT with her 8 puppies. She was a great mama and now that her pups have all found families, this cutie wants a home of her own too! She loves to run fast in the yard but also loves to curl up in her favorite bed. Chloe is very friendly and will make a wonderful family pet.
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.
MISPLACED YOUR HOT DOG? Detective Dexter the Super Snoot is on the case! (Payment only accepted in the form of hot dogs - HA!) Hi everyone! My name is Dexter and I'm a 3 year-old Beagle/Basset Hound mix. And there isn't another hound out there that can beat this nose! I'm an active and energetic low rider who loves to go wherever my nose takes me! I'm not shy about letting you know when I find something worth sniffing - I'm told my voice is part of my charm! I love to do nose work and would make the perfect dog for someone who is into tracking! I love having play dates with my puppy pals and I love going on hikes where I can follow whatever scent happens to catch my nose! And if you ever forget where the kitchen is - just follow me!

Ella is a shy but sweet girl who has the cutest distinguishing black mark on her nose! She likes to play and we're sure she will come out of her shyness soon. She's 2 years old and cant wait to go to a loving home...so come visit Ella today and see if you're the one!
This adorable girl is Fiji. She is 2 years old and is a little shy as she is getting used to the shelter surroundings. The staff and volunteers are working with her and she is a sweet girl :) She just needs a patient family who will let her come out of her shell at her own pace. We've noticed that she has a particular affinity for the kitty who resides next to her...Greece. Maybe you can give them both a forever home!
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!
Ghost is a handsome 3 year old grey tabby who has striking grey, white and almost silvery markings, offset by translucent green eyes. But there is nothing spooky about this kitty! He has tons of energy and loves to play. He enjoys pets and being picked up, and would love to chase a string toy in his new home! Come visit Ghost and see if he's the one for you!
Meet Greece! He's a Mediterranean delight! His handsome face and soft silver fur is very enticing! You'll love this 2 yr old sweetheart the moment you meet him.
Don't let the name fool you...Grumpy isn't all that grumpy! He is approximately 3 years old and was a stray that was dropped off at DAWS. He is just settling in to his new environment, so might be a little hesitant at first. But he loves being loved up once you start petting him. He'd love you to take him home and change his name to Happy!
LET'S RIDE! 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!
CIAO! Meet Italy...he is a 2 year old handsome boy with black silken fur and golden eyes that will have you falling in love before you know it. He is still shy toward humans, but seems to like other cats and does enjoy playing and headbutts when he decides the time is right. Come visit Italy and you'll say, that's Amore!
My name is Joe Joe and I am a one year old hound mix. I'm a super sweet guy from west Virginia who finally made his way to DAWS! Two of my brothers came here a few months ago and were adopted and I'm so excited that its now my turn! I'm a teensy bit on the shy side right now but once I find my forever family I will take in all the love I can get my paws on! I love other dogs so if my new family has a dog already it would be great to have a fur friend! though my new family should have teen age children or older as I am not a fan of the little ones.
Juno is a pretty 2 year old girl who was abandoned and taken in by a good Samaritan, who then surrendered her DAWS. Needless to say, Juno is a little wary right now, but our volunteers are working with her every day to help her along. Juno will need a patient home where she can come out of her shell at her own pace. Visit her in person... you just could be the one to give her a furever home!
WHAT'S BLACK AND WHITE AND A LITTLE ON THE CHUBBY SIDE? Me, silly! I weigh about 70-pounds right now but that just means there's more of me to love! And look at those brown eyes - how could you not love these? Hi everyone! My name is Karlie and I'm a 3 year-old Retriever mix. I'm a super-energetic and adorable girl who loves to be with people! I was living in a foster home before I came to DAWS and my foster mom said I was 'just the sweetest thing" - even sweeter than sweet tea! I've never had sweet tea but if she says so I'm going with it! I love to be outside and play and go for walks! I'm working on leash manners but I like to stick pretty close to my people! I already know 'Sit' and am gentle when I take treats!
