Charlie is patiently waiting for his forever home with kind and caring people who will make him part of their family. Like many shelter dogs, he is somewhat uncertain about his surroundings here, however, he is a sweet and laid back fellow, who very much enjoys some downtime, sitting on the couch with his human(s). Charlie is a handsome Beagle boy who deserves all the love and patience any dog deserves.

Queen, I am in no mood. I came to RAL with my little baby Roo not too long ago, and have been waiting for a forever home for quite a while. Little Roo already has found her home, thank goodness! That girl was driving me up the wall. I'm Kanga, and now it's my turn. I like to be pet gently, and admired for my cool, skeleton like coloring. I can't wait to idolized in a new home. So come on in and show me what you're made of. Make my day!

Here at RAL we often ponder why some pets are here longer than others.

For pets with clear medical issues or who have behavior related quirks, finding a home can be more challenging and take longer. However, more often than you would believe, this isn’t the case. Sometimes, it just comes down to luck and making a good first impression. So, to honor those pets who are here a little longer, we’d like to introduce you to some of the cats and dogs who are available for adoption and have been with us for a while.
