Vader, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Vader and I’m a 3-year-old neutered male that came to Lucy Mackenzie as a stray.

“Lots of good things have happened since I’ve been here. I’ve been neutered, vaccinated and tested. The humans here discovered that I had FIV, which stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. As an FIV-positive cat, there are a few requirements that will be needed in my new home. I will always have to be an indoor-only cat and should be an only cat, too, unless I live with another FIV-positive cat. Don’t let it scare you, though. Aside from a little cold that has long gone, I’ve been really healthy since being here.

“I am loving and attentive and very much enjoy being around people. I’m handsome, too! If you’ve been looking for a new feline companion that could very much use a break, stop in and meet me today!”

Vader 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.

Buddy, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hello, my name is Buddy. I am a 3-year-old gentleman who will make a great companion for someone who has a calm and quiet home. I am timid, so it takes a little time for me to warm up to people. Don’t let that scare you away, though — I am soft and sweet as soon as I feel comfortable. I enjoy being outside and my favorite game is ‘chase me’ with my human friends!

“I’m looking for a patient person who will show me that the world isn’t such a scary place. Is that you?”

Buddy 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.

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.

Morgen and Oliver, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Morgen and I’m a 9-year-old spayed female Beagle mix. I came to Lucy Mackenzie with my best friend Oliver when our human passed away. We lived with her for most of our lives and are used to being surrounded by lots of love and fun. We’re very bonded, so we need to find a home that can take the both of us. We get along well with all sorts of other animals — other dogs, cats and farm animals. We really like people of all sorts and ages, too.

“I have to be a little cautious about how much I eat, because I like to eat! The good news is that I also like to go for walks. Oh, I always need to be walked on a leash, because I will run away. Oliver is now 13 years old and is slowing down a bit, but he still has his days where he’s full of spunk and I can hardly keep up with him!

“We don’t mind being here at Lucy Mackenzie, because we have lots of friends, but we’d really like to find a home of our very own to spend our golden years. So, if you have room in your home and heart for two senior beagles in need of a good home, and own two good leashes, stop by and meet us today!”

Morgen and Oliver are 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.

Chalupa, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“What’s up? I’m Chalupa ... cool name, right? Anyway, I’m looking for someone to take me home.

“I’m a pretty chill cat; I like to take naps and lay in hilarious poses. I can be a little sensitive about where I am touched and about being picked up, so I would need to go to a family who understands that. I really like to sit on your lap or beside you while you relax, but I also like to play and explore on my own. Depending on the day, I may want to spend all my time with you, or I may want nothing to do with you. I hope that’s cool.

“Come say hello; I’d love to meet you!”

Chalupa 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.

Paislee, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“My mother did something wrong and was incarcerated. A friend of hers knew I was now all alone so brought me to Sullivan County Humane Society. I can be a little shy and standoffish at first, but I do warm up. I like to headbutt and be pet but am not a fan of being held.

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

Paislee 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.
