Felix and JD require the same special food. But that doesn't mean they aren't fun-loving cats. Watch the video and see for yourself.
Felix, a black-and-white domestic short hair, and JD, gray tabby, didn't know each other before meeting at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park, but they have a lot in common. Both were abandoned by their owners within days on another (Felix came to the shelter Oct. 28; JD on Oct. 30). Both are easygoing and playful. And both require a special diet. It's because of that diet that the shelter hopes to adopt them together (although it's not required). That diet also makes it difficult for them to live with other cats who don't eat the same specialized food. Watch the video and see if Felix and JD are the cats for you.

Casey and Max are a canine odd couple in real life. But the oddest thing about them is why no one has snatched them up yet.
Felix and Oscar. Bill and Ted. Riggs and Murtagh. Casey and Max? OK, these two cocker spaniels haven't entered the pantheon of onscreen buddies, but that's because they don't have a good agent. Spend a few minutes with them, though, and you'll see they have a special chemistry that comes from living together. Unfortunately, their owner had to give them up when he lost his house, and they have been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since Sept. 25. Max, 8, is the friendly, fun-loving type. When he arrived at PAWS, he had a benign growth on his neck that was drained and removed and hasn't caused him any additional problems. Casey, 9, isn't as outgoing, but that doesn't mean he doesn't like being around people. He also has the lighter coat…

This 1-year-old domestic short hair is looking for a safe house to come in out of the cold. Find out how you can adopt her.
Squirt is a 1-year-old domestic short hair with a stealthy, curious side to her. Maybe that's why we're going with the James Bond theme for this installment (well, that, and we really want to see Skyfall). This inside cat has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since March 15. She was found as a stray, so the shelter isn't sure how she is with kids and other animals. Squirt does have all her shots and is litter trained. But she will definitely need a scratching post. There is no information on whether Squirt has a license to kill (vermin, that is); it's classified. But we're absolutely positive that she hates martinis, shaken, stirred or otherwise.

This 7-year-old feline is affectionate and easy going. Plus, she might be the only one in your home who gets your teenager.
Snuggles is a 7-year-old domestic medium hair cat who enjoys cuddling. She just needs to find an owner who will reciprocate. The cat has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since Sept. 20, after its previous owner had to give Snuggles up because of a move to a new apartment that didn't allow cats. Although she's good around children, especially teens, Snuggles isn't a feline who enjoys the company of other pets. Snuggles is current on her shots and is litter trained. Looking for more adoptable pets? Baby, a playful orange, white and black striped cat, and Angel, a German Shepherd mix, still need a homes. Success stories include Millie, a lovable pointer mix found a new home, as did Patches the cat. Rosie and Lily, the pair of …

Grayster and Zolton are waiting to move into a new home.
A dynamic duo of black, domestic short-hair cats is staying at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park. They are originally from Mokena and were dropped off after the previous owner could no longer afford to keep them. The shelter volunteers are hoping that Grayster (who has a layer of white fur below a layer of black hair) and Zolton can be adopted out together. The brother cats came in together and should leave together. The cats are declawed in all four paws and should be kept as indoor cats. The pair also are litter box trained. Neither are aggressive and will do well with other cats. Zolton is definitely the more relaxed one of the two. Grayster is playful and likes to explore. Both are loving and friendly. If you're interested, contact …

Two-year-old Samson wants a new home.
Samson is a tought dog to pin down. No, he's not feisty; he's just a stray from Tinley Park and not much is known about his background. The great volunteers at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park said the two-year-old dog is a Terrier mix but he certainly looks like he could pass for another breed of dog. He is definitely peppy enough to be a Terrier. Samson has energy to spare but isn't wild or frantic in any way. Toss him a ball and you'll quickly make a new best friend. A family that wants a playful dog will find Samson to be a good fit. If you're interested, contact PAWS at 815-464-7298 or visit the shelter's website. Join the conversation.

You can't tell from the video but this Bichon mix usually has a puffy coat.
Binny is sporting his summer look now. The good people at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park gave the 4-year-old Bichon mix a haircut recently. He came in resembling a giant cotton ball, according to pictures in his file. Binny was picked up from a high-kill shelter and is looking for a new home. Most smaller dogs you'll come across are highly energetic. Binny follows a much more laid back way of life. He is friendly, adventurous and enjoys the company of people. The one hiccup is that he still needs to be housebroken. A new owner will have to help Binny adjust to living indoors. If you're interested in adoption, contact the shelter at 815-464-7298 or visit its website. Some recent success stories include Buddy Boy, a gentle, green-eyed …

This pitbull and labrador mix is just waiting to be adopted.
It's tough to see how Shadow could have gone un-adopted for the nearly at year. She's such an energetic and fun dog. According to her trainer at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park, Shadow is equally happy running around and sitting on the couch. Shadow also is learning quite a few tricks, including how to sit, heel and come when called. She's good with other dogs so, if you already have some, Shadow should fit in fine. She just tends to stay by herself when around other dogs. Ideally, Shadow would fit in a home that doesn't have young kids and with someone who would continue her training. If you're interested in her, contact the shelter at 815-464-7298 or visit its website. Looking for more adoptable pets? Gus, an orange domestic short …

Patch is pleased to announce that Sparky and Sally have found a home together, in time for Christmas. But a lot of animals still need homes. Please visit or call PAWS for more information. These two are sisters, and inseparable. Displaced after their family lost their home, PAWS would like to see them stay together in their future home.
