Adopt Colette

Animal Protection League of New Jersey
Mt. Olive, New Jersey
Contact: or 973-804-6283

She may just be the most affection-focused feline you’ll ever meet; all she asks in return is a little patience. Because Colette was found scared and hungry, living in a storage room under an apartment building, it takes her longer to warm up, compared to some other cats. Once she knows she can trust you, get ready. Colette is a loving, devoted friend for life.

Adopt Zoey

Humane Society of Northeast Iowa
Decorah, Iowa
Contact: or 563-382-0500

Zoey has athleticism to burn, so her fans at the shelter call her Super Dog. There’s no toy in the air she can’t catch, no tennis ball toss she can’t outrun … or at least she’ll give it her best shot. Ego? No way. She’s as loving and sweet as they come. Zoey’s looking for a home where she can be the only pet, with a person who can continue to help her work through her reactivity to other dogs. See Zoey in action.
