KNOW WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT BEING TALL?
My mouth is almost at counter height! Hide the hot dogs! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Ace and I'm a 2 year-old Hound mix. I'm a super sweet guy from West Virginia who was rescued in pretty rough shape. But I'm all better now and ready to find my forever home! I will admit to being a counter cruiser but how can I not take advantage of the height that I've been blessed with? I'm a giant mushball and I love to snuggle and get tons of hugs and kisses from everyone I meet! I love to lean into my human friends and flash my puppy dog eyes so they'll keep petting me! I love food and treats but I'm not super interested in toys. I'm content to go for walks outside so I can sniff and then snuggle up with you on the couch!
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!
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!
Meet Beebee the wonder kitty! She is a sweet girl who is 5 years old and weighs only 7.5 pounds! She was brought to the shelter as her family was moving away and couldn't take her. She is dressed to the nines with her white whiskers, chest and paws! This playful girl would be a great addition to your family!
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!
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!
Meet Chloe! She & her sister, Zoe, are a sweet, bonded pair. Their owner passed away and these lovely girls are looking for a home that will welcome them both! You'll enjoy years of watching these 1 1/2 year olds frolic and play.
Everyone loves Cocoa! This beautiful girl with those gorgeous green eyes is 8 years old and she's a love. She is very affectionate, loves to explore and enjoys playtime! If you can give this girl the loving home that she deserves, come and meet her today!
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.
As pretty as the flower, Daisy is a 2 and a half year old sweet girl! She is new and is getting used to her surroundings and loves curling up in her bed and watching the view from the window. She would love to find a nice, quiet forever home with a patient family that will allow her time to come out of her shell.
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!
That smells like a cheeseburger to me. And I'm hungry! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Devan and I'm a 10 year-old Hound mix. I'm a super senior who's been an outside dog for pretty much my whole life. No one really took care of me so I look pretty old but it's hard to tell exactly how old I really am. I'm an optimistic guy - I know not many folks out there want to adopt an 'old' dog, but I know that there is someone out there for me. I love to be outside and go for walks and boy do I love to eat! One of the volunteers took me for my first ice cream and it was out of this world! I'm a pretty chill guy and I don't need a lot to make me happy - food in my belly, a comfy place to sleep and hugs and kisses! Not too much to ask, right?
COME ON, GIVE ME A KISS!
I mean seriously, who doesn't want a kiss from someone with this face? Hi everyone! My name is Dobby and I'm a 1-1/2 year-old Collie mix. I'm a handsome devil and believe me, I know it! I get pretty nervous when I first meet people and it takes me a little while to get comfortable. But as you can see, it totally happens and then I'm ready for kisses galore! I'm an energetic and playful guy and I love to play with toys! Squeaky ones, stuffed ones - I'm not that picky! Because of my nervous nature I would probably do best in a home with adults or older children who will give me the space and time I need to get comfortable. And then you guys better pucker up because it's going to be time for kisses!
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.
Meet our Sly Guy! Fox is a four year old kitty who was rescued along with five other cats from an abandoned house. He's very nervous and untrusting in his current environment, but shows signs that he would warm up quickly in a quiet 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!
IS THAT THE REFRIGERATOR DOOR I HEAR?
Are you getting a hot dog? Can I have one too? Pretty please? Hi everyone! My name is Gidget and I'm a 2 year-old Chihuahua mix. I'm a super-sweet girl who loves attention! I love to meet new people and I love to snuggle! I'm pretty small so I would fit perfectly next to you on the couch for movie night! And forget the popcorn - fry up some hot dogs instead! HA! I can be a little timid with new surroundings and loud noises so a home with kids 8 or older would be the best place for me. I'm not too interested in toys but I love to go for walks and sniff everything I can! I was picked up as a stray in Kentucky but the solo life isn't for me. I can't wait to have my very own family in my very own home!
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.
ADORABLE I AM!
Someone told me I look like Yoda with these ears so I figured I would go with it! Hi everyone! My name is Josie and I'm a super-sweet girl who can be a bit shy when I first meet people. I really love attention and affection. I just need folks to be patient while I get comfortable, I like playing with other dogs and I'm most comfortable with dogs that are around my size (and I'm not afraid to stand up for myself with those big dogs!) I'm not super interested in toys yet but sometimes I like ones that squeak. I would do best in a home with adults or teenagers who will be patient with me and let me get comfortable with things at my own pace.
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??
Meet lovely Louise! She's a sweet 9 year young love bug who LOVES being brushed and petted. She's a chatty young lady with whom you can have a conversation. Come meet this wonderfully affectionate kitty at DAWS!
WHY DID THE COWBOY BUY A DACHSUND?
Someone told him to get a long little doggy! Get it? HA!! Hi everyone! My name is Maddy and I'm a 2 year-old Retriever mix. I'm a super-sweet girl who was picked up as a stray in Kentucky. Right now my favorite thing in the world is probably food because for awhile I was on my own for food. Because of that I'm a bit grabby when I take treats but I'm working on it! I would do best in a home with tweens or adults who have some dog experience and will make sure I get the training and exercise I need. I'm an active girl who loves to be on the move and I bet I would make a great hiking buddy! The trails are calling us folks - let's get outh there!
HAVE A MOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS!
Christmas in July! With a smile like mine waking you up everyday, you can't help but be jolly! Hi everyone! My name is Molly and I'm a 9 month-old Border Collie mix. I'm a super-sweet girl who came to DAWS all the way from Kentucky to find my forever home! I definately need a home with a family who is familiar with Border Collies. We're very intelligent and athletic pups and we need more physical and mental stimulation than the average dog. We love to work and love having a job to do! I absolutely love people and will stick close to you no matter what we do! I already know 'Sit' and I can't wait to learn more!
'IT'S SO FLUFFY, I'M GONNA DIE'!
And it's my natural hair folks - all fluff, all the time! Hi everyone! My name is Morris and I'm a 7 month-old Pomeranian mix. I'm a bouncy little puppy who used to have a home of my very own in Kentucky! But my owner couldn't take care of me anymore so here I am at DAWS ready to find my real forever home! I'm an outgoing guy and I love getting attention from everyone I meet! I love to burrow and usually hang out under my bed in my kennel and then pop out when someone calls my name! I can get a little mouthy when I get excited and I'm not very good at sharing my toys. I need a home with tweens or adults who will work with me on this and basic obedience. And who will appreciate this fantabulous fluff!
Poe 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!
This sailorman is ready to ship off to his new home! He's a sweet ten year old male who was found on the streets. He has been examined, was deemed ship shape and is ready to shove off! Your home will make a wonderful port for him to start his new, loved-by-all life!
He is the Lord of the StRings...string toys, that is! This Precious love bug came to us along with his brother, Socks, after their owner could no longer care for them. They are two 10 year old super affectionate boys who can go home together or individually.
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.
When in Rome, you should definitely do as this Roman does! That includes playing with shoelaces, jingle balls and toy mice! She's a 2 year old super playful girl waiting to enjoy playtime with her new family!
WILL SIT FOR TREATS
Preferably hot dogs but I'll sit for cheese too! HA! Hi everyone! My name is Sampson and I'm an 8 month-old Collie/Retriever mix. I'm a very energetic guy who would love an active home! I bet I would make a great hiking or running buddy! I'm not too interested in toys (I'm actually a little afraid of the noisy ones!) but I love to run! I would do best in a home with some dog experience and one that has tweens or adults, I get a little jumpy and mouthy when I'm excited so I'll need a family that will make sure I get the training and exercise I need. I was picked up as a stray in Kentucky but now I'm here in Connecticut and ready to have a home and a family and a comfy bed to call my own!
This sweet little girl's name is Sarah and she's ready to win you over! At two years old, Sarah is still a bit shy at first, but her "kitten" comes out the minute a toy mouse or string toy is introduced and her little tongue comes out too! She also loves to be pet and is gentle as can be. Come meet Sarah and prepare to fall in love!
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!

If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, send an email to email@example.com to schedule a time.

Snowbird. Get it? It's ironic! LOL! She's a little old lady (not really since she's only 10) with a sense of humor...and affection and lots of love to give. Her silly gold eyes looking off in odd directions only makes her more lovable! She's the sweetest, silliest cat.
We've got comfy cozy Socks to keep you warm! This handsome 10 year old came to us with his brother, Precious, after their owner could no longer care for them. They are both very sweet, affectionate gentle boys who are looking for love and warm laps. They can be adopted together or separately.
Sunny is a very friendly 7 year boy who came to the shelter with his brother Smokey. They greet every cat and human that walks into the room! They have the softest fur, sweetest faces, love to relax and play. If you're looking for a friendly companion, look no further! They can either be adopted together or separately.
YOU'LL NEVER FAIL-A WITH TAYLA!
I know, it's a bit of a stretch, but there aren't any real words that rhyme with my name! 'A' for effort though, right? Hi everyone! My name is Tayla and I'm a one year-old Boxer mix. I'm an adorable girl who was picked up as a stray in Kentucky. I'm still trying to figure out the whole 'leash' thing - 'm used to just running around wherever I want and leashes don't let you do that! I'm an active and energetic girl - I love to play! I like tennis balls but other toys kind of scare me, especially squeaky ones! I love food and treats too and I'm really gentle when I take them for your hand. I would do best in a home with kids who are 8+ and one that has had a dog before and can help me get used to being an 'inside dog'. I like the sound of that!
DO YOU BELIEVE IN FAIRIES?
You better believe that I do! And I also believe in the power of small dogs with large ears! Seriously, what could be cuter? Hi everyone! My name is Tinkerbell and I'm a 5 year-old Terrier mix. I'm a teeny girl who can be a teeny bit shy when I first meet people. But once I feel comfortable I love getting attention! Sometimes I like to climb onto people's shoulders and then walk along the back of the couch like a tightrope! Pretty cute, right? I only weigh about 8 pounds so I would do best in a home with adults. I'm very curious about my environment and love to know what;s going on around me. If you have one of those window perches, maybe the cat would let me hang out there too? HA!
Everyday is prince spaghetti day with Tony! He's a handsome paisan who has a wonderfully sweet personality. He came to us with some skin issues but is healing nicely. He qualifies for our Angel Pet program so you can bring him back to the shelter clinic for discounted vet care for the rest of his life.

A IS FOR APPLE, B IS FOR BOAT...
And Z is for Zephyr! Oh and H is for Hot Dog! That's probably my second favorite letter and I'm sure you can guess why! Hi everyone! My name is Zephyr and I'm an 8 month-old Terrier mix. I might be one of the cutest guys you've ever met but don't be fooled - I've got a mischievous side! I'm an active and energetic guy with lots of puppy energy! And I'm a lot like a little baby because everything goes in my mouth - including your hands, your fingers, and maybe even your toes if you have your shoes off! I need to be with a family who has had a dog before and can help me with my training (and one with tweens or older - those little fingers are too tempting - HA!)
Meet Zoe! She & her sister, Chloe, are a sweet, bonded pair. Their owner passed away and these lovely girls are looking for a home that will welcome them both! You'll enjoy years of watching these 1 1/2 year olds frolic and play.
