Come to my window, knock on my door. I wanna make you feel beautiful~ Hear me sing for you? I'm Adam Levine and I am a true crooner, and I love to share my talent with friends here in the shelter. I also like to explore and sleep in my kennel. Shelter life is proving to be stressful for me, so I'd love it if you could come spring me out of here ASAP!  Bring a toy and we can play together, too! So come and say hello, cuz I really wanna love somebody.'

Hi there, I'm Tasha! I'm brand new to RAL so I'm a little shy right now. I'm a gentle girl, and I walk well on a leash. I like to explore in the backyard! There was no problem observed with cats, and I seem to do well when left alone. Come meet me today and we can be the best of friends!
