Adopt-a-pet (Aug. 20)

Baboo the Busy Bee, a 1 1/2-year-old male poodle mix, is a naturally playful, curious and trusting canine. Take him for a walk every day; give him something to do. After his job's done, he'll curl up with you in the evenings.

Mitzi, a 2-month-old female Lab-border collie mix, and her siblings — Giraffe, Bernie, Buster, Sheep and Annie — are hoping to find wonderful, loving homes. Come by and see them. They are all adorable.

Clementine the Sidekick, a 2-year-old female cat, will take a bit of time to decide if she can trust you. Once she's made her decision, she will be all over you. She loves to be held and petted. Please consider adopting her. She'd really love a forever home of her own.

Schatzi the Goofball, a 6-month-old female German shepherd, is a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. She is house- and crate-trained. She previously lived with other dogs and children and is very friendly.
