Tarzan is a strong, working-dog breed who's looking for his Jane. He is house trained, great on a leash, food and toy motivated and, believe it or not, a couch potato. Two things a prospective forever friend needs to know: He's a fence climber and he has allergies. He needs to take allergy medications his whole life, but that won’t stop him from being the best dog. Come visit me by making an appointment at www.spcaflorida.org/appointment.

Rocket is a 1-year-old mixed breed who scopes out the big picture before shedding his shy nature. Once he's comfortable with you, he'll add his two cents' (worth of treats) to the conversation. He's compatible with dogs and kids in their teens but please, no kitties. He's got a lot of spunk and is not great at sharing food or toys. He really needs that one family who’s ready to work with him. So make like a rocket and schedule a trip to see him at www.spcaflorida.org/appointment.

Ed is a 3-year-old shorthair/grey mix who is very affectionate and loves to be on a couch all day, until you bring out the catnip. Then he zones out into his own psychedelic world. Come and have coffee with him. You do the talking and petting, and he'll do the purring. Meet Ed at the Orlando Cat Café, but first make an appointment at www.orlandocatcafe.com.

Bologna is an energetic, playful boy who loves wand feather toys, laser lights and catnip mice. He carries his tail parallel to his back and does not like being touched near it. He enjoys his ears, chin and cheeks petted though. Bologna would like a quiet adult home with no other pets. He likes napping with his person on the couch by day and sleeping on his human's bed at night. Make an appointment at www.spcaflorida.org/appointment.
