Pets of the Week: Dogs and cats available for adoption

Ruby

Age: 1-1/2 years old

Breed: Spaniel/retriever mix

Background: Ruby was transferred to NAHS from an overcrowded shelter in Oklahoma. The vet thinks that Ruby was hit by a car at some point, and as a result had a fractured pelvis. It has since healed on its own, but she will always walk with a limp.

Personality: Ruby is a mellow, gentle and sweet dog with a bit of a shy side. Because of her limp, children in Ruby’s new home should be a bit older and experienced with dogs. She might be able to live with another calm, gentle dog and may be a cat.

Adoption fee: $200

Other: All animals at NAHS have been examined for health and temperament, are up-to-date on vaccines and have been microchipped. They are spayed and neutered at adoption.

Where to find this pet: Naperville Area Humane Society, 1620 W. Diehl Road, Naperville, or www.napervilleareahumanesociety.org.

Joe

Age: 9 years old

Breed: Short-haired tabby

Background: Joe was rescued from a sump pump hole at a construction site when he was a tiny kitten. Because of injuries to his tail during his rescue, Joe’s tail had to be partially amputated, so he has a cute little “bob-tail.”

Personality: Joe is a sweet cat, who has spent almost his whole life in foster care.

Adoption fee: $100

Other: Neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines

Where to find this pet: Paws and Purrs Humane Society, 630-897-8738 or www.pawsandpurrs.org.

Heidi

Age: 4 years old

Breed: Domestic short hair

Background: She was rescued from Fixin Ferals. Heidi was pregnant when she was found and went into foster care. On March 16, 2012, she gave birth to three kittens.

Personality: She is affectionate and social, and in her own way loves to hang around people. She needs time to warm up to you. Being very talkative, this sweet lady will purr her way into your heart.

Adoption fee: $50

Other: All animals at ADOPT are vet checked, spayed or neutered, microchipped and are up to date on age-related vaccines.

Lola

Age: 2

Breed: Lab/basset mix

Background: She was left tied to a dog house when her owners moved and almost starved to death.

Other: She is spayed, and up to date on all her shots.

Adoption fee: $99

Where to find her: Call Lynn at Eye on the Sparrow at 630-892-9070.

Callie

Age: 1 years old

Breed: Calico

Background: She had a rough beginning. Luckily, she was rescued and put into her first foster home where her babies were born and well socialized. She gave birth when she was a little over a year old, a baby herself. She then “adopted a few orphans” who came to the shelter.

Personality: The most gorgeous little Calico you have ever seen and is as nice as she is beautiful. She is a definite lap cat and cuddle bug. She rubs against you until you pet her. She would be fine as an only cat.

Adoption fee: $100

Other: Fee includes vaccinations, microchip, spay, Felk/FIV test negative and vet checks.

Age: 9 years old

Breed: Domestic long hair

Rolo

Age: 1-1/2 years old

Breed: Shepherd mix

Background: Rolo came to ADOPT in August 2013 as an unclaimed stray from Animal Welfare in Chicago.

Personality: When Rolo is not at the shelter, he is in a foster home. The foster has reported that he is crate trained and housebroken; however; he still has his puppy ways. He is an active young boy that would do best with an active family.

Other: Rolo has spent time at a board and train and had made great progress. He would do best in a home with no other animals and a fenced yard strongly recommended.

Adoption fee: $250

Where to find this pet: ADOPT Pet Shelter, 420 Industrial Drive, Naperville, 630-355-2299 or www.adoptpetshelter.org.
