Sophie has been sitting in a kill shelter for way too long due to overpopulation, but she now has a time frame for her life; she is scheduled for euthanasia in a few days if no one steps up for her. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccines, and is healthy. She just needs someone to open their heart and home and save her life. She has proven to be good with male dogs but would need to be tested with to female dogs and cats. Sophie loves everyone she meets, she’s good with kids and loves her toys- especially playing ball! She is a sweet and kind soul.
Beautiful Khalesi is a 3-year-old Stafforshire terrier and mix. She was adopted from North Shore Animal league as a puppy and raised in a loving home with a male Golden Retriever mix. They get along famously, and she gets along extremely well with another family dog she has known since a pup but she gets fearful and anxious around dogs she does not know. She has never bitten another animal but can growl and be aggressive. Her current family says she is the most loving animal they’ve ever had. Khalesi warms up to everyone very quickly and wants to be your best friend. Her nature is sweet, and she is generally calm but can be very excitable when you first come home. Her ideal in a home without other animals or little children. Khalesi is house and leash trained quite well. She is approximately 60 pounds, fully vaccinated, and spayed. If you’re looking for a loving and dedicated companion, Khalesi is your girl.
Koby is literally the sweetest boy around, and don’t remind him of his neuro issue that affects his walking because he won’t believe you! At 10 years young, Koby mostly gets around by himself but does need help at times as he tends to forget to take it slow. He loves his toys, loves his naps and he loves people! Koby is seeking a person who understands his neuro/walking issues, who has lots of patience and lots of love to give. Koby needs to be the only pet in the house and since he lived most of his life as a junkyard dog, he just wants to enjoy his twilight years in a quiet home lavishing in love and attention. He does need a fenced in back yard in which to safely walk around and sunbathe.

When pretty Poppy (adoption #L80507) needed a fresh start, NSALA jumped at the opportunity to offer her a warm bed in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. She was a bit nervous about her new situation after surviving on the streets this winter, but this lovely, little 17-month-old house panther needs not worry anymore because one day she will spend the rest of her life being spoiled by the lucky family (with children 12 and older, please) who takes her home. Pick Poppy and you’ll be bringing home the sweetest new member of your family!
The first things you’ll notice about Halibut (adoption #H210195) are his golden eyes and long whiskers but you’ll realize there’s so much more than meets the eye when you meet this shy, sweet guy. After being rescued locally from life on the cold city streets, this 1-year-old has begun to realize he can look forward to a very bright future. Offering Halibut treats will get you an invitation to a chin rub, the makings of a great beginning! If your family cat could use a little friend to mentor, you may be the purrfect pawrents for Halibut!
After being rescued from a chaotic situation, Capulet (adoption #BF3221) needed love, patience, and a few good friends at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center to soothe her shy soul. Now she’s ready to meet her future family, one with a confident cat waiting to help her adjust to life as a cherished pet. Capulet will also thrive in a home with older children (although not required) and cat-experienced adults will offer the happily-ever-after her story deserves.
**Double Adoption** Bonded brothers Mild (adoption #BF3207) and Spicy (adoption #BF3208) have been learning to understand and appreciate humans while being cared for at Bianca’s Furry Friends. Mild enjoys visitors to his room, following them in hopes of pets and scratches. Meanwhile, Spicy prefers to people watch for now. Together, these timid 8-month-old boys complete each other. All they need is a quiet home with some patient, cat-experienced adults and older children to complete their rescue story!

**Foster/Adopt/Rescue Group Opportunity** Duke needs a home and needs one quick.
