Mr. Peabody, prison grad

This is Mr. Peabody. He has spent the last 12 weeks at the Grafton Correctional Facility being trained in basic commands and obedience, manners, proper leash walking and house training. Mr. Peabody learned his lesson well and is now a proud prison graduate. Mr. Peabody was recently adopted and returned after a few days. He exhibited separation anxiety in the home and would bark at the young grandchild. Mr. Peabody would do well in an active house where someone is home most of the time and with older kids.

Daisy is available for adoption from Friendship APL.

Daisy

Daisy was surrendered to Friendship at no fault of her own, as her previous owner was very allergic to her. She is a very sweet, “people” dog that is very friendly with everyone she meets, and also lived with a 9-year old child that she loved. She has never socialized with another dog and has been known to chase cats. It may be best if she were the only pet in the home. Her previous owner described her as very well-behaved and a total snuggler. She also knows some basic commands such as “sit” and “paw” and enjoys sunbathing. She also loves to play. This sweet girl is in need of a forever home where she can get lots of cuddles, sun and love. Come meet Daisy today! Daisy was recently adopted and returned. She was too energetic for her family. Daisy would love to find an active home to call her own.

Yogi

Yogi is a wee sprite of a dog. He was transferred to Friendship APL from another rescue, so we are still learning about his personality. So far, he seems to enjoy hanging outside with our volunteers and exploring grassy fields. Yogi is very affectionate and good on a leash. He’s the perfect pooch but does NOT like cats or going back into his kennel. He wants to be out and about and spread his love. To learn more about Yogi, stop by to meet him today!

Tommy

Tommy was originally an underweight stray. This agreeable guy was picked up by another rescue and transferred to Friendship APL, where we learned he is a smiling, affable gentleman. Tommy makes fast friends with new people. He did have a tumor and mass removed prior to coming to Friendship, and luckily, they were noncancerous growths. Tommy still has plenty of love to give. Why not let him give some to you?

Marshmallow & Petri

24286518-2

Marshmellow is available for adoption from Friendship APL.

Enlarge

Marshmallow and Petri are looking for a home and have been for a while (Marshmallow since September at FAPL and at another shelter before coming here and Petri since November), but it is vital that these two wonderful cats find one. They are FELV-positive and their expected life spans are shorter and they should spend that time with people who love them. And FeLV can’t be transferred to people or other pets.

They are great cats! They have to be the only cats in the home but the two can be adopted together. That would be so wonderful! They are affectionate and sweet girls. Petri will tap at the window to get your attention.

Here is what a volunteer has to say: “I love these two cats. Marshmallow is quite simply a love bug. She gets excited when she sees me because she knows I bring turkey treats. She enjoys being brushed and petted. Petri is so much fun; he loves to chase the laser dot and get some love. These cats deserve a wonderful home.”

Petri is available for adoption from Friendship APL.

Enlarge

They have spent enough time in a shelter (too much time) and it will take a special person to adopt them knowing that they have tested positive for FELV but I know there is someone out there who will open their heart and home for these wonderful cats. Check with your vet if you would like more information on FELV and if you think you can be the one to love these beautiful girls please go to Friendship APL 8303 Murray Ridge Road in Elyria and get to know them. I think that you will love them!

BREED: Domestic short hair

SEX: Female

SPAYED: Yes; shots current

AGE: Marshmallow is 7 years old, Petri is 2 years old

ADOPTION FEE: $25 each
