What can we say about handsome Odie? He gets his good looks 
from being aBasset/Beagle/Hound/ X mix. He is approx 4yrs old, housebroken, UTD on vax and neutered. Odie likes to cuddle, walks nicely on a leash, and loves people. He's a tad nervous so he needs a calm home to adjust in. Odie would do fine with another calm dog. This boy is a 10 1/2* on a scale of ten ~ a lovable boy! You will absolutely fall in love with this guy when you meet him so be prepared to take him home & enjoy him.

Lizette & Smokey - our resident "lovecats!" These two came from different situations, now bestbuddies. It's "". They play, eat, and nap together. Lizette, the petite tabby, is approximately 2 years old. She arrived from NYACC as a kitten. Timid and nervous initially, she's now more trusting and curious when meeting visitors. Smokey, about 5-6 yrs old, was living outside. He too is sometimes shy but enjoys chin scratches, being brushed and of course treats!! They are both spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They would do well together in a home as they support, love and encourage each other to flourish.

Sam is a sweet 15-year-old boy who's looking for someone to love. He came to Pets Alive last year when his owner could no longer care for him due to the owner's ailing health. He was in a loving home for his entire life and we'd love to see him back in a home. This adorable guy would love to spend his days napping in a cozy bed and getting all the attention he can. He's so affectionate with everyone he meets. Give this senior boy a home and he'll thank you with all the purrs you could ever want.
