Hi, my name is Izzy! I am a 5-year-old, 20-pound Jack Russell Terrier. I am very sweet and friendly. I like going for walks and hanging out with my people. I am heartworm positive, but if you adopt me, the APL will provide my treatment. You can come visit me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL
Hi, my name is Magnum. I am a handsome and affectionate 8-year-old orange tabby cat. I am a super-sweet guy who loves getting attention like pets and ear rubs. I'll roll around and meow looking oh-so-cute so you have to give me some love! I'm a big cuddlebug who would love to have a forever family to snuggle up with all the time! If you'd like to see how adorable I am in person, come meet me at the APL any day from noon to 5 p.m.!
