Adopting a friend


ATTEN-HUT!! What is your major malfunction?? That's easy, you haven't adopted me yet!!! Hi everyone! My name is Sarge and I'm a 6 year-old Labrador Retriever mix. And don't worry, my personality is nothing like a real drill sergeant! I'm a happy-go-lucky and playful guy who can't wait to find a home of my own! I've had some ear issues since I've been at DAWS but the amazing clinic staff has taken such good care of me and I'm finally ready to be adopted! I love being around people and would do well in a home where someone is home a lot! I love being outside and rolling in the snow and I like playing fetch too! I'm an awesome guy who's had a rough life and I'm ready for my new leash on life!


Wesley has been with us for many years and we are not quite sure why. He is on the quiet side, but is also a very sweet boy who will warm up to people he knows. He enjoys sitting in a sunny windowsill and watching the birds. He has also watched all of his friends get homes while patiently waiting for his turn to come. Wesley gets along very well with other cats.

Please visit our website http://www.daws.org for the most current and comprehensive listings, and more information about our adoption process!
