Cassie is a sweet, mellow, 11½-year-old old, spayed golden retriever who is even-tempered and fine with everything -- dogs, cats and kids. She likes the attention and is unfazed by rambunctious energy. She is housebroken, knows several commands and is very well-behaved. Cassie would do great in just about any home, especially one with respectful kids and few stairs. For more information, contact foster dad Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.ngrr.org.
Pearl is a gentle, affectionate cat, 3-4 years old, who needs a secure indoor home. She is playful, loves to be held and petted, and gets along well with other cats. She was found on the street, emaciated and dirty, and limping with a string tied tightly around her leg. Her foreleg is permanently deformed, but it doesn't seem to bother her. Her white ears were so scorched by the sun that they had to be trimmed due to cancer on the edges. She should remain cancer free the rest of her life.
