Six-year-old Adeline, sweet, Adeline is perhaps the kindest and most affectionate cat you'll ever meet. She wants three things out of life: to be showered with affection, to have a person to love, and to be spoiled rotten. She'd prefer to have all three in a home of her own. This amazing cat has a wound on her leg that will require periodic bandage changes by a veterinarian until healed, which could be many weeks. Adeline will thrive in a home where she gets lots of attention and affection.

    Meet King, proof that good things come in small packages. King's DNA is 100 percent canine but we are not totally convinced that he isn't really a rhinoceros/wombat hybrid. King is a lovely dog who will thrive in an active home. He is a smart boy who seems to have a bit of training under his belt already. King's favorite game is tug-o-war and he'll play that with his human and canine friends. King will make the perfect sidekick for someone looking for a devoted canine friend. He gets along great with other dogs as well. He is 1 year old and weighs 41 pounds.
