Serenade is a beautiful 5-year-old cat who likes to "sing;" she always has something to say. She is like a purring machine when someone pets her, and she loves leaning in for more pets. Visit Serenade at Joliet Township Animal Control, 2807 McDonough St. in Joliet or call 815-725-0333.
Luna is a spunky, 3-year-old, pittie who loves toys. She has the most fun playing tug with a rope, playing fetch with a tennis ball, and tearing stuffing out of stuffed toys. She is quite athletic and even knows basic obedience. Visit Luna at Joliet Township Animal Control, 2807 McDonough St. in Joliet or call 815-725-0333.
Max is a young male beagle/corgi mix who was relinquished by an owner. He's a good guy, but needs training and an experienced and patient home to make him feel safe again. Call the Will County Humane Society at 815-741-0695 or visit willcountyhumane.com.
Boots is a lovely 5-year-old female domestic shorthair cat who came from a kill shelter. She is a bit shy but very sweet and loving. Call the Will County Humane Society at 815-741-0695 or visit willcountyhumane.com.
J.L. is friendly, good-natured and loves to play. He gets excited when hanging out with the other kittens, but he is learning to play more gently. He is somewhat shy, but if he's given the chance to warm up, he'll make a sweet companion for life. He'd make a great addition to any home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Gilda is an a sweet and lovable girl, but is somewhat timid and shy. She warms up with quiet encouragement and a gentle touch. She’s affectionate and likes getting treats. She’ll “thank you” with a face rub. She may be OK with another gentle, good natured cat. She’d do best in a quiet home where people are willing to be patient until she comes out of her shell. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kai is a gorgeous young female pit bull terrier. She is a strong girl, so she needs a strong handler with bully experience and a home where she is the only pet. A home visit and fenced yard is required. Meet Kai at the Wags 2 Wishes rescue center at 23907 W Industrial Drive North, Plainfield, or visit www.w2wrescue.com.
Beaker is an 18-month-old sweet cattle dog mix. He loves being active and is loyal to his chosen people. He would do best in a childless home with a fenced yard and working dog experience. He would also benefit from a training class with his new family. He is eager to learn and listens well. Meet Beaker at the Wags 2 Wishes rescue center at 23907 W Industrial Drive North, Plainfield, or visit www.w2wrescue.com.
