Winter, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Winter and I’m a 9-month-old spayed female Labrador and boxer mix. There might be a few other breeds mixed in there, too, but suffice to say, I’m pretty cute!

“I came to Lucy Mackenzie when my family was unable to care for me any longer. I like it here, though, because there are always lots of people to play with and to take me on walks. Before I came here, I really had no idea what a leash was. Now, I love them because it means I'm going on a walk!

“I really enjoy being outdoors sniffing around, exploring or, if I’m lucky, playing fetch. I’ve come a long way in my obedience training and really hope to continue so in my new home. I wouldn’t mind having a canine buddy either, as long as we get along.

“I’m a young, active girl with tons of love to give. If you’ve been looking to expand your family by one adorable canine, stop in and meet me today!”

(Winter 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.)

Poe, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 3-year-old Poe. I was rescued by a kind woman from an abusive situation along with 7-year-old Kylo. However, she was not allowed to have cats in her apartment so she had to keep us hidden in one room.

“Realizing that that was not the best option for us, she contacted the humane society and here we are. I am hoping to find a kind, loving home!

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

(Poe 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.)

Happy, adoptable from White River Animal Rescue

Happy is a 5-month-old, blue-heeler/Australian cattle dog mix. Like his six siblings, Happy is very sweet and affectionate.

Please consider making Happy part of your family today!

Yoda, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

“Hi there, my name is Yoda and I am a big, boisterous 4-year-old cat. I’m the kind of cat that has a lot of opinions, and I am not shy about sharing them with you. I love attention and lap time from my human friends, but I like it on my own terms.

“Weighing in at 22 lbs, treats and food are clearly the way to my heart. I really like going outside and I would be a great indoor-outdoor kitty. I love to play and being outside gives me a lot to do.

“I would prefer to be the only cat in my new home, but I lived with small dogs in the past so I may be able to again pending an introduction.

“If you’re looking for a big fella to be your friend, come by and meet me today.”

(Opie 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.)
