Sassafrass is a 2-year-old cutie pie who is looking for her new home. She was originally found as a stray and transferred to the Animal Rescue League by an Animal Control Facility. We believe her to be a pit bull mix, but your guess is as good as ours! Sassy (as we affectionately call her) is a joy to be around. She is quite affectionate! No known aggression or guarding issues that we have seen here. She is a favorite for the volunteers to take overnight and they have reported that she is very well behaved in the home setting after she becomes familiar. She has a moderate energy level, and is highly trainable. Sassy knows all her commands! Sit, down, stay, paw. Works well for treats. She loves playing with other dogs, and seems to get …

Diamond is a large American Staffordshire terrier. She is incredibly sweet and knows basic obedience commands. Because Diamond is a large dog who can sometimes become jumpy when she is excited, we recommend that she goes to a home with no children or only children over the age of 13. Diamond is selective about which dogs she gets along with, so we also recommend that she goes to a home with no other dogs. Diamond is spayed and she has been vaccinated and given a clean bill of health by a veterinarian. Her adoption fee is $205.00. If you are interested in Diamond or have any questions, you can visit her at our Dedham shelter or give them a call at (781) 326-0729.

If you can provide a home for a great cat who wants to be your little buddy, then you will definitely want to meet Colby. This adorable and very friendly orange and white tabby cat is sweet and mellow and totally enjoys being around people. He follows his foster family around like a little puppy dog all in an effort to have the opportunity to sit beside a person. He is very affectionate and lovable. Colby gets along well with the cats in his foster home and would make a nice friend for a gentle, welcoming cat or he would also be fine as the only pet. Due to a broken bone that healed improperly, Colby cannot use his right front leg. This old injury must have been awful for Colby while he was a stray. Now that he is indoors and safe, he …

Ruby is a very pretty white cat with double paws and deep amber eyes. She is confident, friendly and social and enjoys meeting new people. Ruby is an agreeable cat and is comfortable being picked up and held. She likes to be petted and brushed and purrs with contentment. She can also be exceptionally silly and playful. She loves to stalk, run, pounce, tumble, and leap into the air with excitement all in an effort to catch up to a string toy, a game which never seems to get old for Ruby. She is very fun and entertaining. Ruby acts like a rough and tumble kind of cat now, but she was very near death when she was first rescued. She did not do well as a stray with no one to care for her. She has been in an NVHS foster home for three months …

Starlight was just what he needed to feel safe, happy and to regain his …

Lulu is a super sweet, very affectionate, lovable and gentle cat. She is mostly white with gray patches on her head. She is about 6 or 7 years old and has spent her entire life in a tiny apartment where she lives with her human mother and feline brother. Lulu loves people. She is accustomed to having many visitors and is always eager to greet them. She has had regular visits from the grandchildren and she enjoys being around children. Her owner's health is failing and she is no longer able to care for Lulu. Sadly Lulu is overweight. This can be helped over time by regulating Lulu's food intake, feeding her small meals throughout the day and providing some space where she can exercise and play. Lulu enjoys play and she would be so very …

Each week we feature an adoptable pet from the Neponset Valley Humane Society.
Desmond is a super friendly, very handsome orange tabby cat who loves being around people. He is sweet, gentle, mellow and social. He can be a little playful but his favorite pastime is sitting in a lap. He is very happy being a strictly indoor cat. He tolerates the other cats in his foster home but seems to prefer human companionship over felines. We estimate Desmond is about 2 years old. This very nice, affectionate cat is eager for a family to call his own. Desmond is one of the many unaltered stray cats rescued by NVHS volunteers. He was smart enough to make his way to the home of one of our volunteers and it was obvious he needed help. Please call Neponset Valley Humane Society at 781-769-1990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to …
