Robin, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Robin and I’m a 5-year-old neutered male mixed nreed dog that came to Lucy Mackenzie as a stray.

“Life hasn't always been easy for me, but I’m looking forward to starting over in my new home. I’m a fun-loving active fella that has tons of potential, and lots of love to give!

“Since I’ve been here, we’ve spent lots of time working on basic behaviors, like how to walk on a leash, sit and stay. I’ve come such a far way!

“I’d be the only animal in my ideal home, and my human would be committed toward continuing my training with me. It would also be nice if I wasn’t left alone for long amounts of time, as I’m much happier when I’m around my people.

“All I really need in life is a second chance.  If you’ve been looking for a new best friend, stop in and meet me today!”

(Robin 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.)

Honey, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hi! My name is Honey and I am a sweet, energetic, young pit bull mix. I love people and running around with my friends here at the shelter is my favorite thing! I also love a good snuggle after a day full of exercise.

“Strangers can make me nervous at first, but I warm up quickly and I love wholeheartedly! I still need to learn some manners so I would like to go home with someone who can help me with that.

“I do pretty well with cats, but I will need an introduction before I can go home with another dog. Kids make great playmates but I may be too energetic for younger children.

“So if you are looking for a sweet, silly girl to be your best buddy, I would be the one for you!”

(Honey 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.)

Ava, adoptable from White River Animal Rescue

Ava is a 75-pound cuddle-bug who is calm indoors and housebroken. She loves to play outside and is great on a leash. She is the sweetest gal around and loves to curl up next to you while watching her favorite show, Animal Planet.

Pictures do not do her justice — you’ll have to meet her in person to see just how beautiful her markings are! She is approximately 4 years old.

(The adoption fee for Ava is $250. Please go to our website at to fill out an application. We will contact you for an interview once your application has been reviewed. The minimum age for adopting is 28. To adopt a puppy under 5 months, you must be able to be home with the pup or take them to work with you. Dogs coming on transport arrive on Saturdays and you must be available to pick up your new family member.)
