Young-at-heart, ­­senior girl Ellie knows that the secrets to happiness lie in sharing your joy and love with everyone you meet; savoring quiet times with your family and friends; and enjoying your ride through life. Ellie has also figured out that you must choose your outlook on life, and her pick is to embrace it with such loving gusto that she inspires everyone around her to feel the same. If you would love a companion who enjoys nice long walks, companionable sit-downs on the porch to watch the world go by, playing some games together, and, at the end of the day, cuddling up on the couch, enjoying a nice belly rub, and settling in to watch your favorite TV shows, then our Ellie is for you. Sweet Ellie is a down-to-earth bundle of love who is low maintenance and happy to go with the flow. This serene lady is secure enough in her own skin that traveling around and hanging out with her favorite stuffed toys is no problem for her. Blessed with a sensitive, kindly heart, Ellie knows how to support her canine brothers and sisters in times of need. When she senses that one of her friends is scared or nervous, Ellie’s got their back and will help them through by showing them how to overcome their anxieties. She’s all heart, this girl! This quintessential sweetheart of a dog will add a calming serenity to your life and, when those soulful, liquid brown eyes of hers meet yours at the end of a long day, you’ll know that you are home, and that you are loved.

Who wouldn’t want to add an extra helping of sweetness, joy, and love into their lives? Well, if the answer to that question is “Me, I would!!”, then we have the girl for you! Gorgeous Gouda, a long-time resident at Francisvale, is an undiscovered treasure. She is outgoing, affectionate, and playful, loving to get her belly rubbed and to play chase with her balls. She is sure to bring a smile to your face as she companionably relaxes with you, sunning herself on the windowsill and happily accepting treats from her best friend. Gouda is laid-back and easy-going…just look into those mesmerizing green eyes, and you can see that she epitomizes the ideals of peaceful contentedness and living in the moment. When you come to Francisvale, ask for Gouda by name. She tends to be a bit shy when people come to visit at the shelter, and she hides her light under a basket. But, if you give Gouda a chance to shine in a home of her own, you will be delighted with the beautiful little soul you selected. When it comes to unconditional love, Gouda is tops!

Hi! I’m Sophia and I’m looking for a fun home to call my own. I love to run and play. Give me a chest full of toys and I will have fun all day long! I am also a very good companion. I love to follow all the staff members around while they do their work. I can’t help it, I’m just curious and love the company! I get picked on a lot from some of the cats here at the shelter.  I don’t know why. I guess when your a little quirky and a bit nerdy you get picked on…even in the cat world. I am keeping my paws crossed that I will be able to go to a home where everyone loves me and I can leave these cats behind. Can you help the nerdy girl become the Belle of the Ball?

* Sophia wouldn’t mind living with another playful cat.
