Aria, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Aria and I’m a 1-year-old spayed female Coonhound mix. I was originally adopted from Lucy Mackenzie last year and things didn’t go quite as planned. The other dog in the house and I got along great at first, but then things changed and I realized that I really didn’t like him all that much.

“That’s OK, though — lots of good things have happened since I’ve been back! I’ve been working with the people here on my obedience training, and I must say, I’ve made great improvements! I’m happiest when I’m around people and would love to find a home where I don’t have to be alone for long lengths of time.

“I would definitely prefer to be the only animal in my new home, but with the proper training (which the people here can talk with you about), I might eventually be OK living with another dog. My ideal new family would be active and would want to spend time with me going for walks, hikes or maybe even runs.

“If you think you and I might be a good match, stop in and meet me today!”

(Aria 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.)

Buddi, adoptable from Upper Valley Humane Society

Meet Buddi. This 3-year-old spitfire is sure to win your heart. Buddi came to the shelter as a stray, appearing to be a little rough around the edges. Staff quickly noticed that this diamond in the rough just needed a little polishing to show his true potential.

After some one-on-one time it was clear that Buddi was just a little misunderstood. He loves to spend his time laying in the laps of volunteers and staff members.

While Buddi is sweet, it can take him some time before warming up to new people. Buddi has met many cats here at the shelter and seems to feel that they are just not for him. Dogs? While we don’t believe he’s ever met one, we feel he might find them to be too much for him. So an introduction before going home to one is a must.

If you think Buddi is the one for you, come meet him today!

(Buddi 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.)

Sara Too, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

Poor Sara Too! This is her second appearance here and she has the sad distinction of being our longest resident at seven months.

Five-year-old Sara was dropped off at a barn with her kittens. The property owner knew life in his wooded area would not be good for Sara and her babies so he called us for help. We immediately went and caught them all.

Poor Sara, she was so shy when she first came to us but she has really warmed up in our care. She would still do best with a quiet home but will reward anyone who is patient with her with a lot of love!

Please come meet this sweetheart soon! 

(Sara Too 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.)
