It’s time to “Melo” out and cozy up to this charming eight-year-old spayed female Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. Melo’s even-keeled, low-key personality is perfectly aligned with her name, and it has also earned her an orange “Wallflower” designation in the Meet Your Match program. More precious than a nugget of gold, Melo is looking for a relaxed lifestyle and some well-deserved love. Once she’s on your team, she’ll quickly turn into the MVP of your heart. This one is a slam-dunk; make Melo yours for $100 today.
Beatrice, an eight-year-old spayed female Domestic Shorthair cat, is ready for the royal treatment by a loving person like you. This stately princess is classified as an orange “Sidekick” in the Meet Your Match Program, which means she is benevolent, balanced and beside herself with joy every time she’s with you. Give Beatrice the chance to rule your kingdom by adopting her for $25 today.
Squirt may be a slow-mover, but this hard-shelled companion can’t wait to find a loving home he can settle into for the long haul. Squirt is a seven-month-old turtle who only needs a few basic amenities to keep him happy; a spacious tank with water and a dry basking area, a heat lamp and regular food will keep him content. For just $10, adopt Squirt and bring some reptilian joy to your life.
