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.

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.
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.
Dewey is a sweet and wiggly goofball. With a DOB of 6/26/16, Dewey is a young guy and full of energy, and would do best with an active family. Dewey is a happy go lucky pup, and just about everything makes his body wiggle with excitement! Dewey loves toys – with tennis balls being his favorite! – and loves a good cuddle session.
Bronco is a sweet and loyal Doberman mix with a birth date of 3/8/09. Don’t let his age fool you! Bronco still has plenty of energy to run through the yard, but is equally happy to curl up in a dog bed and keep his people company. Bronco is looking for a quiet home with a loving family that would spoil him with treats and walks. He’s a happy guy that would be company while his family works outside.
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.
Filly and Felix are a pair of kittens who are just getting started in the world. They are just 10 weeks old so the world is very new to them and they are learning so much every week! This pair came from the same litter so they have great fun exploring and getting into trouble together! They are a brother and sister “dynamic duo” who spend half their time wrestling and running and the other half napping! They can be just a little shy with people at first but will usually warm up just fine once they realize you are one of the “good guys”. How about it, anybody interested in having a pair of fun-loving siblings?
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue look to find dogs and sometimes cats in their care forever homes with the help of foster homes. Here are their pets of the week.
Hi! My name is Coconut but people call me Coco for short. I’m a shepherd mix about 5 months old and am looking for my forever home. My foster family loves my spunkiness and how I grumble when I want to chat. I get along great with the dogs and cat at my foster home. We play all day long! I would love to go to a home with another playful dog as I love playing with the other puppy here, Benny. I love toys and entertain myself by finding them into the air! My foster mom says I’m super smart as I’ve already learned to potty outside and even tell her when I have to go by scratching at the door. I know sit and am working on stay in only one week! I walk pretty well on a leash but need practice as I’m still young. As much as I love playing, I also love snuggling, naps, and giving lots if kisses. I do really well in my crate too! People love the unique marking on my head and they say it even looks like Wonder Woman! I can’t wait to find a family of my own. Please consider taking me home.Her adoption fee is $300. Apply to adopt her here: https://rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Alvin is an inquisitive 5 month old kitten who loves to play. Above all else, Alvin LOVES other cats. He loves to rub against them and will follow the older cats in whatever they do. He is very curious about the world around him, but also a bit nervous of new things. He has come a long way in the 3 months he has been with Hearts of Hope, but he will need a special family with other cats who understands he takes time to warm up to new people/places. A home without dogs would be best for Alvin as that is when he is the most relaxed. Alvin is neutered, microchipped, and is up to date on shots. His adoption fee is $25.

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.
Hi, I’m Brienne. I was born in 2016 (approx) and came to Carol’s Ferals in May 2018. I’m pretty shy right now, but with some love and TLC I will come out of my shell!
Hi, I’m Sammy. I was rescued in April 2018 and was born in 2012 (approx.). I’m a sweet, laid back guy looking for my furever home. I’m good with other cats, and I may be okay with dogs as well.
Hi, I’m Zion! I was born in 2009 (approx.) and came to Carol’s Ferals in 2017. I’m a large, fluffy sweet boy who’s looking for a home of his own. I don’t really love other cats, so I’d prefer a home of my own. I’m pretty laid back, so I may be good with kids as well. I am FIV+, but I’m well taken care of so I’m still healthy and doing well.
