"You will always find me with a smile on my face and pep in my step. I enjoy being around my humans, showing them how much I love them, socializing with them and their friends, and playing with my squeaky toys. I think I would be a great addition to almost any family. Please give me a chance, here!"

"How handsome am I? Don't let my age fool you—I've still got a great amount of energy but I do know when it's time to settle down. The staff thinks I'm okay with other dogs, but if you have one, a meet-and-greet is required. You won't have to worry when I'm hungry or wanting a treat because I will let you know! Consider me here!"

"Hi, guys, look at my ears! I've claimed myself as the "office dog" because I don't like being in my kennel alone and instead get to hang out with the boss lady all day ... we get along great! I love to snuggle in laps, play with toys, and go for car rides. Adopt me here!"

"I was included in this list awhile ago, and I'm back for another week because I'm still at Baltimore Humane Society. I'm currently in a foster home living my best life and have shown my foster mom how great I am. I will ask for scratches and belly rubs when I want them. I'm an all-around relaxed cat who only wants attention. Check me out here!"
