The following animals are currently available for adoption, with descriptions courtesy of the respective organizations.
Tank is a 4-year-old gentle giant, a pitbull/terrier mix who wants to please. He is well behaved, gets along with other dogs, cats, and children. He thinks he’s a lap dog and has a big head and even bigger heart.
Sweet Boy, somewhere between 2 and 4 years old, gets along with other cats and has even been around dogs. He is a sweetie that loves to play with toys.
At Angels Helping Animals Worldwide
Pumpkin is a 4-month-old who is full of play. He is loving with everyone: dogs, cats, and children. This boy will melt your heart.
With the exception of kittens, all animals have been spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on all vaccinations.
Jackson is an 11-year-old male who is simply delightful. He is ideally looking for a retired person or someone who works at home. He is currently pending adoption, but interested parties should still contact the shelter.
Richard is a 5-year-old male who was found as a stray in Edgartown. A great companion cat, his adoption is currently pending, but interested parties should still contact the shelter.
