Paws-itively Adoptable Pets

These four furry friends are up for adoption now at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County.

Hello! Enchanted to meet you. My name is Belle and I’m a bit of a celebrity. You might have seen me on CityLine Tacoma where I completely stole the show with my cuddly personality and goofy tongue.

I am a female Pit Bull Terrier mix, but most people think I’m the cutest velvet hippo they’ve ever met. The shelter thinks I’m about 6 years old and I’ve been looking for my fur-ever home for quite some time.

I’m a people person and I love cuddling. I’m an only-dog-in-your-life kind of lady and I have some medical needs that my shelter friends will need to go over with you before we can set off on our own happily ever after.

Thankfully, I’ve found a pretty cool foster family so I’m not in the shelter right now, but if you’re interested in whisking me away, please email Reference number: A531420

Don’t let my resting kitty face trick you. My name is Laker and I’ve been told I’m an absolute sweetheart. I’ve also heard I’m a little love-bug and fabulous girl. I’m 8 years young and a female domestic shorthair.

I don’t move as fast as I used to, but my mind is as quick as ever. My ideal home would be a one-story or an apartment. I’m a gentle, old soul looking for my purr-fect person who will love me forever. I can’t wait to meet you. Reference number: A536113

Hi! My name is Niko. Isn’t my smile amazing? I cheer up lots of people around the shelter with my sunny disposition. I am a male American Staffordshire Terrier and Australian Cattle Dog mix. The shelter thinks I’m about 3 years old and I’ve been at the shelter for almost two months now.

I’m a very special guy, if I do say so myself. And I’m a bit of an attention hog, so I need to be the only pet in your life. I love running around, going for walks, and just hanging out. I need lots of room, so an apartment wouldn’t be the best for me. I know some basic commands (and I love to show them off), but I could use a little more training.

Since I’m kind of like a teen myself, I would do best in a home of teens or adults only. Come fall in love with me. Reference number: A522102

Greetings! My name is Quilla and I have a reputation for being a saucy, flirty gal. I’m a female domestic shorthair and the shelter thinks I’m about 2 years old. I need a cat-savvy family that can handle me and my purr-sonality. Come say hi! Reference number: A538259
