The RAL shelter will be closed for adoptions on Saturday, April 25 due to Woofstock. Come meet adoptable dogs from 10am-2pm at Westchester Commons! The shelter will reopen at noon on Sunday, April 26.




My name is Kit Kat! I love to rub up against you and have my ears scratched.I get along well with other cats, and I seem to do okay with dogs as long as we are introduced properly. I came to RAL with some nasty bladder stones and I was in a lot of pain, but now that those are gone I feel like a kitten again! Don't be fooled by my age, I still love to play and run around. I'd love to spend my golden years curled up in your lap. Come hang out with me today and I'll win your heart with my bright eyes and sweet face.

Goose here! I'm a pretty laid back guy. One of my favorite things is sniffing around in the backyard here at RAL - there are so many smells! I could benefit from some more human socialization so I can learn to really bond to my forever family. Maybe you could help me with that? Like I said, I'm really gentle and calm, I guess you could say I'm just a little misunderstood. I seem to do well with other dogs and cats, so why not add me to your fur family today? I'm waiting for you!
