    Adopt Marshallow: A Good Ol’ Boy

    June 24, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Kittens get all the attention these days, but don’t forget about the older folks! Though Marshmallow (AKA George) doesn’t have the endless energy of his younger counterparts, he more than makes up for it with his sweet temperament and easy-going friendliness. He spent his first 12 years in a group home, so he’s very well […]

    Adopt Kelsey: A Gentle Scamp

    June 17, 2014 at 11:30 am

    Kelsey is one of the happiest dogs we’ve met in ages! At 7 months old, this beautiful terrier mix is still a puppy, so she has some excess puppy energy. But she’s never wild, and after a minute or two, that energy turns gentle and friendly. She’s the kind of dog that will greet you […]

    Adopt Crispus And Lucian: Lively Kittens

    June 10, 2014 at 10:22 am

    It’s high kitten season at the local shelters, and we were lucky enough to be visited by two of the cutest ones. Crispus and Lucian are only three months old, and they have all the qualities you’d want in a kitten: they’re full of energy and love, they thrive on contact and petting, and they […]

    Adopt Ellie: A Mild-Mannered Pit Bull

    June 3, 2014 at 10:38 am

    Pit bulls have a bad reputation, but Ellie is living proof that they deserve much better. This gorgeous one-year-old pit mix is perhaps the calmest, best-natured dog who’s ever visited us at WCHL. She sat patiently, never barking or jumping, and she gladly accepted petting. Best of all, she gets along perfectly with everyone from […]

    May 27, 2014 at 11:25 am

    Tessa and Tatum are only the tip of the cute iceberg. These adorable striped tabby kittens are two of seven siblings, and a small part of the “kitten wave” currently washing over animal shelters everywhere. These affectionate and playful six-week-old sisters are living at the Orange County Animal Shelter in Chapel Hill, but they’d much […]

    Adopt Root Beer: A Big Ball Of Energy

    May 20, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Root Beer is a big galoot of a dog – all love and excitement. But he’s in a tough spot right now: Paws4Ever adopted him out to a loving owner when he was just a puppy, but he had to return to the shelter three years later when his owner underwent a health crisis. This […]

    Adopt Flora: A People Cat

    May 13, 2014 at 10:30 am

    Flora needs people. This quiet, well-behaved grey tabby can’t get enough human contact, and absolutely loves to be petted. After a hard early life (giving birth while still less than a year old!), she’s ready to settle down with people who love her. She’d fit in beautifully with any size family, from a single student […]

    Adopt Ricky: A Tiny Treasure

    May 6, 2014 at 11:28 am

    Act now! A dog like Ricky won’t stay in the shelter for long. In fact, you may have to fight some of us at WCHL for him… Ricky (and his siblings Roxie and Spencer) came to the Orange County Animal Shelter last week, and he’s been winning hearts there ever since. Ricky’s only 8 months […]

    Adopt Patio: A Wannabe Dog

    April 29, 2014 at 10:39 am

    Sure, Patio’s technically a cat. But she has the soul of a dog. If you haven’t been able to choose between adopting a dog or a cat, this beautiful 2-year-old shorthair might be just the pet for you. She’s as friendly and playful as a pup, but as agile and loving as a cat. Patio […]

    Adopt Evita: A Loveable Lapdog

    April 15, 2014 at 11:27 am

    Evita is a sweet dog who has only one thing in mind: loving. This 7 year old chihuahua-dachshund mix is a quiet, mellow girl who likes to spend her time relaxing. While smaller dogs often have a reputation of being a bit overly talkative, Evita is more laid back, preferring to keep her thoughts to […]
