Speedy, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 1-year-old Speedy, because I am fast! A kind family that has a local farm saw that I was dumped on their property one day. Very concerned for me as frigid cold temperatures were in the forecast, they worked hard to trap me. They then contacted the humane society who took me right in.

“I am a funny boy, but all talk. Sometimes when you first approach me, I will hiss. And I often will low growl while I am head butting you or rubbing against your legs. I do not lash out and I do love attention — I am just not certain about it so growl, too!

“I am vet checked, neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and FIV/FeLV negative.”

Speedy is up for adoption from Sullivan County Humane Society, located at 145 Broad St. in Claremont. Please see hours on the humane society website at www.sullivancountyhumanesociety.org and Facebook. Call 603-542-3277 or email sullivanhumane@hotmail.com.

Ozzy, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Ozzy and I’m a 1-year-old neutered male. Do you like tennis balls, smiling and belly rubs? If so, I may just be the dog for you!

“I came to Lucy Mackenzie this winter because I needed some medical help. I hadn’t been here too long when I went in for surgery on my right hip. You see, I had never been able to use that leg and it was painful. Through lots of rehabilitation and care, I’m using it so much more and feel so much better.

“There’s not much slows me down. I love to go for walks exploring outdoors; I love chasing tennis balls and playing with squeaky toys; I love cuddle time and belly scratches. What can I say? I love life!

“I’m looking for my forever home and in spite of all that I’ve been through, I remain a completely happy and good-natured dog and am sure to bring lots of laughs and love with me wherever I go. If you’ve been looking for a new canine best friend, stop in and meet me today.”

Ozzy 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.

Midnight, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hey, hey, hey! Midnight here. I am a 3-year-old mixed breed dog who loves to play! I have a lot of energy and would do best with someone who is willing to take me for lots of walks.

“I need some work on my leash skills — I’m just not used to being on one. I really like other dogs, and would do well in a home with one as long as they are willing to play with me. I get a little too wild with cats and other small animals, so I would need to go to a home without them. I am a very sweet boy and I’m ready to go to my new home!”

Midnight 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.
