LOVEBUG IN A CONE
Mal is Over It
Kitty Mal was brought in to us recently with an Animal Control Officer after he was found wandering in Harpswell. The gentlemanly cat had an abscess on one of his hind legs. Dr. Pare removed it, and now Mal is patiently (or impatiently) enduring his healing process on the adoption floor. He's doing very well, but is rightly annoyed with his new accessory that protects his stitches. Despite all this, Mal is quite the Casanova, and we hope - rather, we know - he'll charm his way into a loving home soon!
Even with his cone, Mal will find a way to nuzzle his visitors. What a guy. We love him!
TOTES ADORBS
Where Are They Now?
ACE IS PART OF ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY!
Hopper (f.k.a. Ace), the black cat on the dog bed in this picture, found some loving humans, as well as four loving pet siblings in his new home. "So glad we adopted Hopper. Here's the entire 'family.'"
INDIGO IS DISCOVERING THE GREAT OUTDOORS!
" We decided to rename her after we had her with us for a few days. Her new name is Roxy and we absolutely adore her and love her so much. She is very well-behaved for being just four months old! She doesn’t do her business in the house, and we actually have her outside without a leash now. She loves her dad (my boyfriend) and hates when he is out of sight. Thank you so much for letting us adopt this bundle of joy. She has changed our lives completely and love her with all of our hearts. "
Adopt Me!
BEAUTY AND BRAINS
Hi, I'm Nova! 
My name is Nova, I'm 8 years old and have the most striking blue eyes. I'm a busy bee! I'm naturally playful and curious. I like to have a job and go on a big walk every day but after that there's nothing I would enjoy more than curling up in front of the fire with you. I walk politely on a leash, sit on command, do my business outside and love to play with other dogs! I have hearing loss and am likely completely deaf but that doesn't stop me from living my best life! I'm very intelligent, willing to learn and already know several hand signals! I'd be happiest going to a home with older children and I tend to be slow to warm up, but I love all the scratches and massages. If you're reading this and I sound like the perfect companion, come in and meet me!
