Bella Marie is a senior female mixed breed dog who came to us when her owner could no longer take car of her. She is a good girl and has a zest for life. Call Will County Humane Society at 815-741-0695 or visit willcountyhumane.com.
Chloe is a 5 to 7-year old bulldog/pug mix who was overbred and cast aside. She appears to be housebroken and has done well with all low energy dogs she has met. A low-key family with older respectful children and owners with prior bully experience would be best for her. Chloe has food allergies and can't have chicken. Contact Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue at www.w2wrescue.com.
Chopper is an 8-year-old pitty whose owner surrendered him. He appears to be housebroken, loves to be with people and does very well in the car. He needs a home with older respectful children and needs to be the only furry pet in the home. Contact Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue at www.w2wrescue.com.
Tommy is a snuggly, easy-going 5-year old cat. He likes dogs, other cats and every person he meets, although he is a little reserved right now. He is already neutered and a front paw declaw. Visit Tommy at Joliet Township Animal Control, 2807 McDonough St. in Joliet or call 815-725-0333.
Max is a large male domestic shorthair. He is a sweet boy that loves attention from people but would do best in a home with no other cats. Call Will County Humane Society at 815-741-0695 or visit willcountyhumane.com.
Jude Paw is a cute, friendly and affectionate little guy who really likes to be petted. He’s quite sweet and very gentle. He loves to play and has lots of fun chasing the laser light toy around; providing him with great exercise while keeping his human companions laughing and amused at his antics. He also does well with other cats. This adorable, fun little fellow would be a great addition to any home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Carli is a friendly, sweet girl that was recently given up by her family of several years. Despite losing her family, she’s good-natured, likes people and shows lots of affection. She likes having her ears and cheeks scratched. She loves to drink out of the faucet, lapping up the water like it’s a water fountain. She should be OK with other cats with a slow and proper introduction. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
