Since looking for a home, two dogs and one cat arrived at the shelter. Click on the above link to see pictures and information on the other pets in need of homes.
Guido, a Male Terrier Mix
Guido is a 2-3 year old boy who is friendly and thinks he's a lap dog. He is good with other dogs and curious about the kitties. Some of his favorite things include going for long car rides, playing fetch with the tennis ball or frisbee and receiving treats and praise.
Guido is anxious to learn and should be an easy one to train since he will do just about anything for a treat, AFL staff said.
Sugar Momma, a Female American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Sugar Momma came to Animals for Life from another municipal shelter where her days were numbered. The AFL staff had this to say about Sugar Momma:
This poor girl has run into very bad luck lately and we are hoping to have her luck change for the better! She lived with a family her whole life and was amazing with their special needs child. Her family lost their home and she ended up being given to another family. From there, she had a litter of puppies, and was then given up for good. Sugar Momma is adorable and sweet, and would like nothing more than to be a part of a family again. She would love to have children to play with and dote over.
Maschi, a Female Tabby Cat
Maschi is an adult cat with a petite build and beautiful coloring. She came to the shelter after her owners moved out of the state and could not take her with them.
Maschi came from a home full of love so she is friendly. She will even head-butt her humans for attention. And if that doesn't work, then she will roll over for tummy rubs.
Maschi should probably be the sole cat in her new household. She is good with older children, ages 12 and older.
