Hi, I am Arrow, a 3 year old, 85 lb. mastiff/retriever mix. Although big and strong, I’m a big softie who hates being alone. I need a furry friend who I can play and sleep with every day. It may take me a little while to settle in so I may bark and whine whenever you leave. As soon as I settle down, I promise I will behave. Please be patient. One other thing you should know about me is that I LOVE car rides. Adopt me, you won’t regret it.

This is Oliver, an extremely handsome 14-year young kitty looking for love. He came in needing dental work and now, after cleaning and extractions, is ready to bring his pearly whites and his sparkling personality to the family of his dreams. He loves people and is very social. He would do well in a home with kids over 6 and maybe even other pets. Visit him in Newington today!

O’Malley is a 2 year old, domestic medium haired cat. This busy guy is looking for an active home where he can play with laser pointers and feather wands all day long! O’Malley wants all the attention his new family will want to give so he’d prefer to be the only pet in the home. He is most comfortable with adults and teens.
Tune in on Wednesday mornings.
Meet Ryleigh, a very special girl who has been waiting for a home for too long. She loves other dogs and zips around in a never ending game of bounce and chase with her canine friends. With humans she knows, she is affectionate and loyal. People she doesn’t know are scary to her, causing her to back up and hide. To support her social needs, she needs a patient family who has an active playful dog to help show her how to live in her new home. For her safety, she should go to a home with a securely fenced backyard to play in as she slowly gets to know her neighborhood. The wait to have her jump up and lick your face is worth it!
Local pet lovers and pet-loving businesses sponsor the care of hard-to-place pets as they are in the adoption center longer than others.
