The following animals are available for adoption. If you find an animal you’d like to adopt please contact the organization directly. Lowell’s First Look does not assist with the adoption process. And if you’re looking to add to your family and don’t see an animal below, each organization has additional cats, dogs, or farm animals looking for new homes. Pet profiles and photos are provided by each organization.
For additional information about each organization visit their websites or read our intro article to Furry Friday! The following pet profiles are provided by each rescue.
Carol’s Ferals specializes in trap, neuter, return (TNR), but they come across “friendlies” who are available for adoption. Here are their pets of the week.
Want a cat who will greet you at the door when you come home? Come check me out! I am a very loving boy who just happens to be FIV+. No worries on that. Go ahead, Google it. I can live a long and healthy life with proper love and care.
In the urban dictionary, my name means the one you can always trust. That’s me! I am quiet and very friendly, and I will always be there for you. Think calico (me, me, me)! You won’t regret it!
Although my name means little king in Gaelic, I don’t act like royalty. I will greet you at the door when you come home and offer soft purrs. I am a loving lap cat who will let you know when I’ve had enough (oops, maybe I do act royally at times). I may do well with one other cat or a dog, but I have been known to swat at cats competing for attention.
Vicky’s Pet Connection
Vicky’s Pet Connection works with the Kent County Animal Shelter to rescue cats and kittens. They also take in dogs older in age and those needing special care. Here are their pets of the week.
Do you go to bed at night feeling like your love-quota hasn’t been met? Wish you had a little buddy to purr you to sleep? Well then, you need to meet Declan. This beautiful, 5 month old tabby is such a little, Love Bug. He yearns for affection and is never happier than when he is snuggled against you and being petted. He’s a young fellow so he’s active and happy. Come meet him at the Critter Cottage and you’ll fall head over heels for this sweet teenager.
Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary
Those involved with Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary take pride in finding the right home for dogs in their care. Here are their pets of the week.
Squeaky is a happy-go-lucky boy! Outside in the wide open spaces is where he likes to be. He loves the big play yard. He is great at his commands, and likes to show off in the kitchen where all the volunteers hang out. He has been on off-sites to hair salons, with one of the volunteers. He does just fine in the car. A home where he can be the only child would be best at first. Nice quiet and loving environment. He will be a great constant companion for you and loyal as well.
My name is Rose. I’ve been told that I’m as pretty as a rose. MY D.O.B. is 12/06/15. I definitely have energy, but I can also settle down when I’m in a quiet room with some of my favorite people. I would love a home with a large fenced in yard, so I can run and play. I need a home with no other dogs or cats. I am a loner by nature. I can be sort of independent, but also cuddly. I do love to have attention though. I would be best in a home without young children. I would love to have a family that would be interested in long walks. I pull hard on lead right now, and am working with the kind folks at MAS on my lead training. I do well being left alone in the home, and also do well in a crate. I know a couple commands, like sit and come.
