Rufus is a 4-year-old treeing walker coonhound with a gentle temperament. He is mellow, friendly, and gets along great with other dogs. He would make a wonderful addition to any home. To meet him, email Stacy at email@example.com or call 708-478-5102. For information visit www.nawsus.org.
Luke Skywhiskers likes being with people. When anyone is near, he reaches through his cage door to get attention and affection. Luke can play a little bit rough, so he’d do best in a home with no small children. With a slow and proper introduction, he should be OK with other cats. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catnip is very good-natured, calm and gentle. She loves spending time with people – getting held and especially curling up and getting lots of lap time, snuggling and affection. She may be OK with other cats if properly introduced. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Tobee is a quiet 4-month-old kitten. He has a silky coat and enjoys being held and brushed. He is a little timid here but welcomes lots of gentle pets.

Visit Tobee at Joliet Township Animal Control, 2807 McDonough St. in Joliet or call 815-725-0333.
Jenna is an 18-month-old pittie/bulldog mix. She loves to romp around and make the silly faces and sounds. She also loves toys, especially squeaky toys, tennis balls and tugging with a rope. Visit Jenna at Joliet Township Animal Control, 2807 McDonough St. in Joliet or call 815-725-0333.
