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 be scary 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’d 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.)

Blackjack, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie

“Hi! My name’s Blackjack and I’m a 2-year-old neutered male. I came to Lucy Mackenzie with two of my kitty friends when our mother died. I’m very close with my brother, Lobo, and I’m so happy that we were able to stay together.

“Since we've been here, lots has happened — we’ve been neutered, vaccinated and tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). It’s a good thing, too, because it turns out that we both have it. FIV-positive cats can live as long and healthy a life as non-infected cats, and we have the same needs as any other cat. We should always be kept indoors, and should only live with other FIV-positive cats. That works out well for the two of us, because we can stay together!

“So, if you've been looking for a pair of affectionate and playful feline brothers to bring lots of love and laughter to your home, stop in and meet us today!”

(Blackjack 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.)

Clarabell, adoptable from Sullivan County Humane Society

“I am 2-year-old Clarabell. I so desperately want a home of my own that, when I was a stray cat, I ran right inside someone’s home and settled myself in. Sadly, his resident cats wanted no part of me so he brought me here.

“I am a sweet girl that deserves a wonderful family! I am vet checked, spayed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped and FIV/FeLV negative.”

(Clarabell 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 and Facebook. Call 603-542-3277 or email
