Borat is a nearly 5-year-old tabby cat that was abandoned when its owner had to move and couldn't take it with him.  Borat loves attention and will follow you everywhere, rubbing your feet as a pet.  He's fine with other cats, but it's best to stay in a home that doesn't have small children.
Haley is an 8-month-old female Chihuahua that weighs 11 pounds, is shy, gets scared easily and needs an experienced adopter who will be patient with her.  It may take a few days, but once she trusts you, she will give you endless kisses and curl up in your lap.
Butch is a handsome, outgoing, active and friendly 1-year-old male terrier.  He loves hiking and would make a great hiking partner.  He loves to play with toys, kiss and be nice to other dogs and will do best in homes with older children because he is so strong.  He will love a large yard and a family to play with.
The Maggie is a 5-year-old, 30-pound poodle that can be stubborn at times, so a strong, steady hand will be needed.  She gets along easily with women and can be picky about men and can't be around small children.
