"I'm Sadie, the adorable, fluffy gal who came in last week with no front teeth. The staff says I have been a doll since then, and I don't know why no one has come to sweep me off my feet! I did bark when other dogs would pass the shelter, but stayed calm most of the time. When Caitlin sat on the floor, I was so excited, wandered over to her, and sat down in her lap! I really would make a great companion. Please see me here!"

"Hi, everybody, I'm Cranberry! I'm as sweet as the popular Thanksgiving dish I'm named after—seriously! I'm an older gal who is currently skin and bones, but the staff at Hope for Life is helping me plump up. I do love to be picked up, held, and get as much attention as I possibly can! If you turn away from me after you pet me, I will meow and bump my head into your hand to ask for more! Please give me a second chance at life!"

"Can't you must see how much my eyes are pleading for my fur-ever home? I want to get out of the shelter really bad! I need an active family who is willing to run and play with me every day because I have a ton of energy. If you have a big back yard I can run around in, then that's even better! Under all of this energy, I'm actually a very sweet girl who will provide you with so much love! Check me out here!"

"I don't know why someone hasn't rescued me yet ... even the staff wonders why. I have sadly been at the VBACAC since November of 2018, so I really need a home. I may be 9, but I sure don't act like it. I'm a staff and volunteer favorite because I'm patient, quiet, goofy, loving, and an all-around great girl. Please give me that chance at a family, here!"

"I've been at the shelter since June because there aren't that many people that understand cats like me. I'm actually a really sweet guy, but I do have a tendency to bite and scratch; it's all out of play, I promise! I ask that my future family please have plenty of boxes and toys around the house so they can play with me! If you think you can handle me, click here!"
