Breed: Catahoula Leopard
Background: Tessie was given up because her owners were experiencing health problems. Tessie is currently being treated for a respiratory infection, which we hope she will kick soon. She has been at A.D.O.P.T. since May 2012.
Personality: Tessie is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. She is very quiet, loves companionship and the attention of people. We have seen improvement in Tessie’s infection over the last few weeks, but, she is still not well enough to be adopted out as a healthy dog. We want to be sure that we see her treatment through, but it breaks our hearts that she is still at the shelter. We are looking for a special home that will foster Tessie as we finish getting her well, and then ultimately, make her part of their permanent family.

Age: 2 years young
Breed: Black Domestic Short Hair – Male
Background: Transfer from Sandwich Vet – at A.D.O.P.T. since Feb. 25, 2012.
Personality: Hardee may walk a bit funny – but he gets around just fine. He saw a specialist a few months ago and it was confirmed he has a torn Achilles Tendon on his back leg. However the specialist determined, since he is NOT in pain and is not having difficulty walking, we would leave the tendon as is and not repair it. He is sweet and gets along with other cats and might get along with a quiet dog. Come visit Hardee – what a luv bug!
Adoption Fee: $100.00
Other: All animals at A.D.O.P.T. are vet checked, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and are up to date on age related vaccines.

Abbie is a 3-year-old Retriever mix who was surrendered because her previous owner did not have enough time for her. Abbie is a very active and exuberant girl who loves the water, playing fetch, giving kisses and getting lots of belly rubs. She would do best in a home without cats or dogs, and kids in her new home should be at least 16-years-old because of her size and activity level. She is a great dog who just needs to work a bit more on her manners, so continued positive reinforcement training is a must. Stop by soon to see if Abbie is the perfect match for your family.
Lois is a 4-year-old Domestic Shorthair cat who was surrendered because her family was moving and could not take her with them. She is a lovable cat who is very playful and vocal. She does get along with other cats and a calm dog just might be fine with her. Kids in her new home should be at least 5-years-old because Lois is on the active side and might be a bit much for little ones. If you are looking to add a new furry friend to your family, stop in soon to meet Lois!
