Sylvia, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Sylvia and I’m a 7-year-old spayed female. If you’re looking for a new best friend, I may just be the gal for you!

“I came to Lucy Mackenzie with my feline friends when our human mom became sick and could no longer care for us. Since we’ve been here, lots has happened, but the most important thing is that I’ve made so many new human and kitty friends — I love it!

“In my new home, all I really need is lots of hugs, pets and cuddles. Oh, yeah — comfy beds strategically positioned in sunlight and toys would be great, too. If you were looking to adopt a pair of cats, I could introduce you to some of my friends, such as Sampson, Felix and Little Hat. I’d be so very happy, and I just know that you would be, too.

“Stop by and meet me and my friends today!”

(Sylvia 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.)

Ruger, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hello! My name is Ruger, and I’m a handsome, young fellow looking for the right person to call my own.

“I can be a bit nervous at first, but after a short time I’ll show you just how much fun I am! I love to cuddle — I’ll curl up in your lap for hours, if you let me! I also love to play and would make a wonderful running or hiking partner.

“I’ve gotten along with other dogs in the past, so I might be able to go home with another dog pending an introduction.

“If you’re looking for a really cute snuggle-bug, come meet me so I can show you what a great dog I really am!”

(Ruger 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.)

Sweet Bubba is looking for his forever home! Bubba is a Great Pyrenees mix and is a kind and gentle soul. He loves car rides and playing fetch. Although he prefers to be outside, he has no issues inside and is completely potty trained. He loves kids and is great with other dogs. He also doesn’t mind chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits or even Guinea pigs!
