Betty doesn’t subscribe to the notion that black cats crossing paths are bad luck.

The nine-year-old female black medium-haired cat is up for adoption with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

“Betty is definitely channeling her zen vibe,” said AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter. ” She’s not the kind of cat you’ll find climbing the curtains; her preferred perch is on the couch, by your side, maybe taking in a Netflix binge of Midsomer Murders.”

They don’t get much sweeter than Toblerone.

The three-year-old mix has the long body and short legs of a dachshund and the adorable face and ears of a Labrador retriever.

“He’s the type of dog that everyone you meet will ask about,” said Animal Welfare League of Alexandria spokesperson Gina Hardter. “Besides his intriguing looks, Toblerone also has a sparkling personality, wagging his tail joyously at everyone he meets, then crawling into their laps for snuggles.”

Baby likes her independence.

The three-year-old gray tabby is up for adoption with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. She might have a “resting grump face,” but doesn’t mean it.

“Once she gets to know her new friends, she loves to be by your side, enjoying watching you read or taking in the latest stories on TV — even if her face doesn’t show it,” said AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter. “She’s the kind of cat who is comfortable doing her own thing and doesn’t always need to be by your side – though she does enjoy some good ear and chin scratches when you are hanging out.”

Baby is spending time with a foster family, and her adoption fees have been paid by a generous donor. Schedule time to meet Baby from her foster home by emailing [email protected]AlexandriaAnimals.org or by calling 703-746-4774.

Able might look big in her picture, but she’s a petite princess, says the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

The four-year-old tricolor hound mix weighs in at just over 25 pounds, and her favorite games are “Fetch” and “Tug.”

“She has a cute little hound head and body, but the legs of a much shorter pup,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “She loves a good treat and could be motivated to learn a lot more games — for the right reward.”

Panpan is a veggie connoisseur, according to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

The four-year-old female white and sable Netherland dwarf rabbit is up for adoption and isn’t shy, said AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter.
