This sweet white cat needs a home.
Nanook called a school bus in Worcester home for more than five years, according to a posting by International Animal Rescue in Shrewsbury on Petfinder.com. But Nanook had clearly been a house cat at one time. She is roughly 6 years old, and is living with a foster family with three other cats. She doesn't "like" them, says the foster parent, but doesn't fight with them. Nanook could use a forever home. Read more here.

Help Sarah find a friend who won’t move.
Sarah is a 4-year-old purebred boxer who was found abandoned in a home after her owners moved away. During her brief stint with the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL), she has proven to be a sweet dog who would be comfortable snuggling with an owner or two of her own. Sarah is still wary around other animals so she would do best in a family without small children or other animals. If she sounds like a match, contact Dog Adoption Coordinator Liz Fay to learn more about her. Homeowners, please remember to bring your mortgage statement; renters bring a copy of your lease agreement. Everyone who adopts must bring in a driver’s license.

Special needs cat needs your help.
Meet Tony. He is a 4-year-old, orange and white, domestic short-haired mix who is ready to move on and find a family to call his own. Tony has been with the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) since the end of July and has proven to be a sweet boy. Tony was returned to the shelter because the original adoptive family did not properly care for him, which led to fleas and severe teeth decay. Because his mouth was in so much pain, he wouldn’t eat so his teeth were pulled. Today, Tony has no teeth, which isn’t much of a hindrance, but his diet of wet food must be maintained. He is a happy-go-lucky guy who likes to play and cuddle. Tony will do great with either a family or a loner looking to rescue a friend. If you are in the Worcester area …

This energetic pooch is ready for a family.
Speedy is a black and white, 5-year-old Jack Russell terrier who has been with the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) since June. He is intelligent, energetic and loves to chase his toys.

The ideal candidate for his adoption will be familiar with the breed and willing to care for such a high-energy dog. He is a good friend to the other dogs at the shelter. The more things, people and animals to play with, the happier Speedy is. If you would like to learn more about Speedy, please meet with Dog Adoption Coordinator Liz Fay and if you have another dog at home, bring her/him …

Help this 5-year-old bachelor find a home.
Meet Doobles. He is a black-and-white shorthaired mix looking for a forever home. Having been with the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) since the beginning of August, the staff has learned that although he is a bit timid around new people, once he warms up to you, he will be a great friend.
