Maddie
Age: 2 years old / Breed: Beagle/Coonhound Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: HART Animal Rescue
"Look at this face! Maddie (Zoey) is a two-year-old, 40-ish pound, Beagle/Hound mix, who was adopted as a puppy but recently returned because the family had a new baby, which made her nervous. Maddie is good with other dogs, cats, and kids so long as they're calmer and not rambunctious. Likely a home with older children would be best. Maddie is higher energy so would love someone to take her on long walks or play in the back yard with her."

Kodiak
Age: Adult / Breed: Domestic Mediumhair / Sex: Male / Rescue: Ohio Alleycat Resource
"Kodiak is a big fluffy bear just like his name implies. This gorgeous guy is looking for just the right home where he can relax and be his best self. Kodiak is an independent fellow, and he’s happy to entertain himself by chasing toys, watching cartoons next to you on the couch, or keeping vigil at the windows. Kodiak’s favorite kind of attention is scratches behind the ears. He gets along with other cats, and he’s looking for a calm and quiet home with adults where he can slowly settle in and be himself. Kodiak is currently on a twice a day medication to regulate seizures, but he eats it like a champ when crushed up in chunky wet food!"

Will come when you call him by name."
