Joel

Age: 2 years old

Breed: Hound mix

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.

Joan

Age: 1-1/2 years old

Breed: Domestic short hair

Background: She was transferred to NAHS from an overcrowded shelter in Oklahoma.

Personality: Joan has come a long way since she first came to NAHS. She was extremely shy and timid at first, but after a lot of time and patience, she is starting to enjoy human affection. Once she feels safe and comfortable, Joan is very loving and affectionate. She seems to like most other cats, and having another cat in her new home might help Joan to come out of her shell and be more playful. She would do best in a calm and quiet home with older children.

Adoption fee: $50

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.

Sunny

Age: 14 weeks old

Breed: Beagle/pointer mix

Adoption fee: $175

Fancy

Age: 6 years old

Breed: Pug mix

Background: Although little Fancy must have had a family at one time, no one came to claim her at the high-kill shelter where Rover Rescue found her in southern Indiana.

Personality: This sweet and funny girl has the lovable, goofy personality of a pug and adores being spoiled. In return, she lavishes cuddles and kisses on her favorite people. She gets along well with other dogs, too, but prefers them to remember she likes things her own way. A stocky 25 pounds, Fancy’s favorite pastime is eating!

Other: Fancy is spayed, housebroken, crate trained and current on her vaccinations — microchipping is included with her adoption fee.

Adoption fee: $200
