Hi, my name is Willie Girl! I am a sweet and friendly 2-year-old Beagle mix. I like to go for walks, run, and play! I have lived with other dogs, cats and kids in the past and gotten along fine with everyone. I have a goofy and fun personality. I was born with a smaller than normal left eye. I can't see out of it, but it doesn't hurt me or cause me any trouble. Come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL to see if you'd like to add me to your family!
Hello, my name is Kingston. I am a handsome 6-year-old cat. I'm a friendly, confident guy. I'll come up and introduce myself to you, looking for some chin scratches and pets. I don't even mind being held for a little bit. I am a laid-back guy who prefers relaxing with my people to chasing around toys. Come meet me at the Springfield Petsmart in the adoptable cats area!
