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.

Chatty Catty is sweet, affectionate, good-natured and talkative. When people speak softly and gently to her, she kneads her blanket and purrs contently. She loves getting her head petted and being brushed. It appears she’d do well with other pets, but she’s a bit shy so she needs a quiet home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Ernie likes people and other cats. He’s sweet and affectionate and likes to be petted and rub up against people to show he’s happy. He also loves to carry his toy rat around. Since he doesn’t like to sit on laps or be carried, he’d probably do best in a home without young children. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
