jeff.jpgJeff here, a nice guy with few demands. I'm an adult stray, neutered-male fox hound. "I'm good with other dogs and good on a leash. Give me wholesome food, fresh water, a warm bed and a loving, human pal, and I'm good to go." Kennel 22.

I'm Gerry, found in a snowbank, brought to the Genesee County Animal Shelter by a Sheriff's Deputy. I was malnlourished and dehydrated. I got checked out by a vet and sent to a loving foster gerry.jpghome to get some vittles, put on some pounds and get healthy.

Although my ears show some frostbite, I'm doing great and gaining weight. I'm an orange tiger domestic shorthair cat, an adult neutured male. I'm sweet and loving. My favorite things to do include watching birds outside the window and curling up in laps. I'm available for adoption at Petco in Batavia.

panda.jpgI suppose because I'm black and white, they named me Panda. And while I'm not going to be as big as a panda bear, they say I'm going to be a big boy. If you think you could love and nurture a cat with the small outline of Chile, South America, on his face, then let's not monkey around. Let's start 2010 on the sugar foot, shall we?

lynx.jpgI'm guessing my ears are the reason I'm named Lynx. If you've ever encountered one of these exotic felines in the wild, you'll recognize the distinctive, tufted ears, sort of like mine. If I'm incorrect, I'm all ears, tell me otherwise. I'm a boy in need of a home in the dead cold of winter.

Both Panda and Lynx are in Cage 86.

coco.jpgNot only am I handsome, beautiful and sweet, I'm a kick-back kinda guy who loves attention and, let's face it, warrants it. I am, after all, Coco, a hound mix, adult male who's good on a leash and deserves more than running around like the stray I was.

Love, love me do -- you know I'll love you. I'm a red, but I'm blue in Kennel 21, not having so much fun.

tess.jpgGlad to make your acquaintance, I'm Tess. Happy, healthy and housebroken, too. I'm an adult female, black Labrador retriever/mix. I'm a people dog, a dog's dog and a children's dog. So I get along nicely with all and I'm considered very friendly and playful. Note the word "very."

I do need some structure to learn good manners to help me watch my Ps and Qs, and I need some leash work. I'm in Kennel 36 hoping for some new BFFs.

lilla.jpgI'm sweet but a little skittish. You might be too if you were ambling along and got your paw stuck in a "leg hole trap." My paw has healed up and looks good, but now I'm a little nervous about the world we live in.

I need a comforting family who will give me time to adjust. My name is Lilla and I'm a lovely calico. But technically speaking, I'm an adult, spayed female, domestic-shorthair cat. Cage 62.

chester.jpgChester's coat is sort of tuxedo-looking, which suits him perfectly because, by all accounts, he's "a perfect gentleman." He's an adult, neutered male Labrador retriever mix. He was found as a stray, but he is good on a leash and with other dogs.

His mild manner and quiet, gentle nature make him a pleasant companion. In Kennel 34, he just hangs out and watches people walk past, doesn't get all worked up about things. Of course, he is hoping someone stops to say "Hey! look at this sharp guy..."

precious.jpgCute, petite and special, that's Precious. She's a black, domestic shorthair cat who is spayed. She was in the sick bay awhile because of some problems she had after being spayed. But she's doing great now and ready to go home! She's in Cage 64.

riley.jpgI'm Riley and I'm sweet. Here are just some of my many attributes: good with other dogs; good with children; good on a leash; crate trained; loves walks; and loves hanging out outdoors.

That's a pretty dang good report card, wouldn't ya say? I can be a bit nervous about my surroundings at first, but I warm up to people quickly and then get along famously.

I'm an adult, neutered male and a hound mix. Find me in Kennel 15.

kestrel.jpgMy name is Kestrel and my fur is softer than even feathers (maybe even a chinchilla)! I am another of those sweet girls who lived outside in the cold world and can truly appreciate the warmth of a nice home. 

I love to be stroked or brushed, and once I get to know you, I'll roll onto my back and let you scratch my belly and under my "wings" where I love it the most! I like other cats so I don't mind sharing your home. I can seem shy with people at first, but I always come around. I am just a lovely girl if you have patience, give me time and a quiet place to settle into. I am about 6 months old and am in Cage 65.

Note: Kestrel is diagnosed with mild gingivitis which may at some time actually clear up, possibly secondary to a calicivirus in her youth. As long as the gingivitis remains, it's important to keep the gums and teeth as healthy as possible. It is suggested that a daily dental care product such as chlorhexidene or zinc-based oral cleanser be used. Many can be purchased without a prescription online, at the veterinarian's office or a pet supply store.

dorth_cat.jpgDorothy is well aware she isn't in Kansas anymore, if, in fact, she ever was. She does know she's been passed over time and again during her stay at the Genesee County Animal Shelter.

So much so, that this shy but affectionate lass has earned a get-out-of-jail-free card, meaning volunteers have already paid her adoption fee in the hopes Dorothy will get a leg up on the competition.

She's an adult, orange domestic short hair cat, spayed and more than ready for adoption. She doesn't beg for attention but enjoys getting petted. The volunteers say Dorothy has been here for awhile, which puzzles them. They are pulling for Dorothy and hope her lucky day comes soon, since she is most deserving of a real home with love and companionship. Stop by Cage 82 and introduce yourself to Dorothy, you'll be glad you did.

jeter.jpgThis good ol' boy is Jeter. He's an Alaskan husky/German shephard mix. He's also a high-energy dog that needs an experienced owner and a home without children.

Jeter is a neutured adult who behaves on a leash and is housebroken. He gets along with some dogs, but does better with girl dogs. Despite his robust and handsome looks, Jeter is timid and shy at first. He needs a little time to build trust.

A home that can provide him with positive discipline and lots of exercise would be best for Jeter, according to those who know him. He's waiting for a chance in Kennel 33.

anna_marie.jpgMy "family" left me behind when they moved away. Some "pack" that turned out to be! And just look at what they've lost, a true-blue friend, a loyal and loving pet.

My name is Anna Marie (classy, don'tcha think?) and I'm an adult, spayed German shepard/Labrador retriever mix.

The irony about my being left behind is that I'm such a great family dog. Kids, cats, dogs, the mail lady, I like 'em all!

Not to toot my own horn, but I'm also completely housebroken and well-mannered on a leash. Bottom line: you couldn’t ask for a better companion. But don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself.


cookie.jpgJust look at me would ya. I'm drop-dead funny. Can't help but be with splotches like these. I'm the cutest little Oreo Cookie you'll ever meet.

In fact, the volunteers here refer to me as a living example of modern art. They say my black spots were "carefully placed" on my person but I think they are pulling my leg.

I'd sure like to amuse you inside a home that I would let you share, if you let me. P.S., I'm spayed and they call me a black-and-white DSH, but I don't know what that stands for.

duchess.jpgI'm Dutchess. But don't let my name fool you -- I'm not a snooty lady! Oh, quite the contrary. My lineage is boxer/pit bull mix, I've been spayed and, seemingly, I am housebroken. Inarguably, I am sweet to people and other dogs. My leash manners are commendable. If you would like to take me home and love me, I would be royally grateful.

buddythecat.jpgBuddy here. They say I'm a nice-guy kitten with an affectionate, outgoing personality. I give clues about the real me by doing things like jumping on your shoulder and snuggling against your cheek. My purr is evidence that my motor runs smoothly. Oh, yes, I am sweet, too. Though I like Halloween as much as the next kid, I don't take things personally. If my onyx-colored, gleaming, gorgeous fur frightens anyone, I just hiss and say "Boo!" That'll show 'em. Let's go trick-or-treating together, OK?
