Are you looking for an energetic dog and wonderful companion? Then look no further than Ray Ray. He is a 1-year-old Labrador retriever mix who would love a big fenced-in yard to romp around in. Trips to the dog park and long walks would be great outdoor activates for this active boy. Ray Ray would be a great companion for a home with other dogs, but due to his high energy level, a home with children at least 8 years old would be the best fit. If interested in adopting him, visit 9099 130th Ave. N., Largo. His adoption fee is $75, which includes his neuter surgery, microchip, vaccinations and free 30 days of pet insurance.

Wilson is a 2-year-old front-declawed, leopard-spotted tabby. He is a sweet, smart boy who purrs as soon as you touch him. Once he knows you, he loves to cuddle up on your lap and hang out. He is also young enough to still be spunky and playful, too. He loves to play in bags and boxes, is good with children, calm dogs and other cats. He is a special needs kitty because he has epilepsy, but giving him medicine twice a day, which he takes without issue, easily controls it. He has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on all shots. Call the Suncoast Animal League at 786-1330.
Rosie greets everyone at the door looking for love and attention. She will roll over to have her chin and tummy rubbed and will be your best friend forever.
