Lola wants car rides! Feeling the wind on her face from the back seat is one of her most favorite things in the world. The other is her toys. Since coming in to the Door County Humane Society (DCHS) four months ago, Lola has learned that squeaky toys can be heaps of fun. She’s a spayed female Beagle/Hound mix, one-to-two-years-old, surrendered to DCHS because her previous owner had no time for walks and play. Lola is good with children; she will be a terrific family pet.

In mid-September, a stray from Gardner township came in to the shelter. She immediately received the name Tender Heart because of her gentle temperament. This nine-to-eleven-year-old female cat obviously was someone’s pet as she is front declawed. She is in good health, and her sweet nature makes her perfect for household seeking an affectionate companion.
