Claire

This lovable gal is Claire. She’s nice and gentle. Claire arrived from another rescue so her background is unknown. We really can’t say enough good things about her. She keeps a clean kennel, walks well on a leash, is quiet in her kennel and very affectionate. During her stay at Friendship she has visited the local nursing home. The staff and residents said that Claire was the best dog that has ever been a guest there. If you’re looking for a calm family pet, checking out Claire is a must! Claire was recently adopted by a senior couple and returned. They decided they did not have enough energy to have a dog so returned her. They said Claire was a wonderful dog that had manners and was housetrained.

Florence is available for adoption from Friendship APL.

Florence

Florence is one of the nicest and sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet. Director Greg Willey rescued her from the Cleveland city kennels. Florence is partially blind but doesn’t let that deter her. Once she gets the lay of the land she’s good to go. Volunteers usually take another dog with them when they walk her and she follows right along. Flo likes other dogs and adores people. She wants everyone to be her best friend. A house with another friendly dog would be great for Florence. Also a home without a lot of steps would be helpful. This girl will be a great companion pet for any lonely soul, couple or family. You really need to stop by and visit this lovebug. You will love her as much as she loves you!

From Director Willey: “This sweet Bulldog mix tugged at the heartstrings of my staff and volunteers. Her eyes were a mess from untreated conjunctivitis that caused a lot is scarring on her corneas. The team at One of a Kind removed some of the conjunctiva around the eye to make her more comfortable. She may have chronic dry eye that will require eye drops. ... She is partially blind and probably sees the world as if she were walking through a long and dark tunnel, but we are hoping that a wonderful, patient and caring family is waiting at the end of that tunnel. Are you that family?”

Gwen

Gwen here! I’m a transfer from the Cleveland City Kennels. I am super super sweet and love everybody. I can be a little shy at first but warm up quickly. And once comfortable, I become a social butterfly. A couple of volunteers took me to an event and they said I was the best dog ever to ride in their car. I have a calm personality and I’m very well-behaved. I recently had a litter of puppies. All my babies were adopted. I’m hoping this time it’s my turn to find a forever home. Come down to Friendship and fall in love with me. Trust me, you’ll love me.

Bella is available for adoption from Friendship APL.

Bella

Bella is a beautiful purr machine. Her owner abandoned her and this sweet cat’s world was turned upside down. She was really shy when she first arrived at FAPL and has come such a long way. Bella is a lap cat! She is very affectionate and so lovable. Bella is FIV-positive which is sometimes confused with feline leukemia. It is NOT feline leukemia. FIV-positive cats can live normal life spans and it is not contagious for people or dogs. Cats can’t catch it through casual contact either. If you have another cat please check with your vet so that you can feel comfortable adopting an FIV-positive cat and then come to FAPL and meet Bella. All cats receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed and spayed/neutered and feline leukemia tested. Kittens under a year old are $50 and cats over a year are only $20. All kittens/cats over 3 months old are also micro-chipped.

BREED: Domestic Short Hair
