Pepper the cat, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society
“Hi! My name’s Pepper and I’m an 8-year-old spayed female. My coat is more like salt and pepper — a very neat combination of white and black fur, which kind of looks gray, at first.
“I came to Lucy Mackenzie when my owner moved across the country and couldn’t take me with her. I stayed in another home for a while after she left, and it just wasn’t meant to be, so they brought me here to help me find a new home.
“Oh, I should tell you, too, that I have no claws. I was declawed on all four paws when I was younger.
“I’m incredibly playful, loving and deserving. If you’ve been looking for a new feline best friend who’s as sweet as can be, stop in and meet me today!”
Pepper is up for adoption from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society, located at 4832 Route 44 in West Windsor and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12-4 p.m. Lucy Mackenzie is also on Facebook and Twitter and can be reached at 802-484-5829.
Prince, adoptable from Potter’s Angels Rescue
Prince would love to be the king of his own castle!
Are you looking for a terrier/chi mix? Would you enjoy the company of a small, affectionate, and gentle companion? Prince is 5 years old and weighs in at 9 pounds. He is a bright, medium energy fellow who loves to be with his people.
Prince would do best in a home with other small dogs, since he does like to be the boss and must be reminded that he’s not “top dog”! He responds well to correction, which is fabulous. He’s learning sit, and he will potty on command. His foster mom says he’s nearly house trained, he’s crate trained and he walks well on his leash. He is crated when the family is not home, and he does well in his crate.
Prince does well with the pet birds in the home, and foster mom thinks that he would be fine with cats. He hasn’t lived with children, but he would probably be OK with older children. He would also do very well as a solo dog. He is very attached to his person and enjoys playing and cuddling with that person, so as long as he had good human company, he would probably be very happy.
Prince isn’t loud or nippy — those puppy ways are long behind him. He’s very gentle taking his treats, and his favorite thing to do is to cuddle with his people.
Prince is up for adoption from Potter's Angels Rescue, based in East Randolph. Submit an application here. Potter’s Angels is also on Facebook.
Pepper the dog, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society
“Hi! My name is Pepper and I am an 11-month-old mixed breed dog. I am very high energy and would be happiest in an active home. I am a playful and fun-loving boy!
“I am very intelligent and I love to learn, so I would benefit from someone who can continue to teach me new skills. I would do best in a home with older, respectful children. I play a bit rough, so an introduction will be needed if you have another dog in your home.
“If you think you could be the one for me, please come in and meet me today.”
Pepper is up for adoption from the Upper Valley Humane Society, located at 300 Old Route 10 in Enfield and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. The Upper Valley Humane Society is also on Facebook and Instagram and can be reached at 603-448-6888.
