Hello, my name is Tinkerbell! I am a 3-year-old Shepherd / Golden Retriever mix. I am new to the shelter, so I'm a bit scared. But I'm getting more comfortable every day. My favorite thing to do in the whole world is play frisbee. I'm really good at it, too! I am good with kids, and I am housebroken. You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
Hello, my name is Pacey! I am a sweet 1-year-old cat. I like to cuddle up with my people and get some nice chin scratches and pets. I enjoy my relaxing time and taking naps on comfy blankets. I like to play sometimes, but I'm past my wild kitten stage! Come meet me at the Springfield Petsmart in the adoptable cats area!
