41/92
I adopted my calico cat Kitty from the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society in Lewiston, Maine two years ago. She weighed just one pound, because she was the runt of her litter. The shelter named her Trinket, but for some reason, the name Kitty just stuck. She's gotten bigger, but is still a small cat. Kitty is a very vocal and expressive cat. She loves to eat salmon and cheese. Kitty has a very unique trick: she dips her paw into wet cat food and brings it up to her mouth to eat it! I think it means she is a genius - or has great table manners.
42/92
Danielle Waugh
Necn reporter Danielle Waugh adopted her cat Camden from the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland after last year's Clear the Shelter event in Westbrook! Camden is very vocal, active and adorable. She loves her big sister Kitty (also an adopted shelter cat!).

Entertainment and features reporter Jackie Bruno shared a photo of her dog Buddy. She said, Buddy is our shih tzu. We absolutely love him! This is him celebrating the Fourth of July last year!
44/92
Jackie Bruno
To say we love Buddy is an understatement! We are obsessed with Buddy! He is the sweetest dog ever. He loves everyone he meets, gives out lots of kisses, and is a great big brother to our son Jack! Buddy is a shih tzu.

Tony Sabato
Baxter is a 6 year old Terrier Schnauzer mix adopted from Animal Humane New Mexico two years ago. His favorite activities are going on walks and enjoying a good snuggle on the couch. The amount of love and happiness he has brought to my fiancé Anna and I is indescribable. It's hard to tell who rescued who! Adopting a shelter pet is one of the best decisions we have ever made!

Ryan Vorapheth
Here's Financial Analyst Ryan Vorapheth with his cat. He says, my cat Sasuke was only 8 weeks old when I first saw him at a friend’s house while visiting NYC in 2008. It was love at first sight but I couldn’t bring him back to Boston during the time. So my best friend drove 200+ miles to deliver him to me in Boston. I couldn’t thank my friend enough for doing so and I couldn’t be more happier since it’s my first real pet. Strangely my cat behaves like a dog but that’s what makes them interesting pets.
48/92
Kristen Brown
Here is director Kristen Brown with her husband and cat. She says, This is Mr Littlejeans… My husband Nate and I adopted him from a local farm in Norton Mass. He is filled with personality and often adopts my goofy husband’s personality so it’s always a fun time when we have “family time”.

Katherine Underwood
This is Louie, my best bud. He was born on Valentine's Day in 2010. Louie has moved with me six times, from Elmira, New York, to Albany, New York, then to Portland, Maine, to Manchester, New Hampshire and the many apartments in between. He loves to swim, prances in the snow, and is the very best snuggle bug I know. If you don't yet have a dog, I promise you, getting one will be the best decision you'll ever make. I love my #Louieman.
51/92
Maxine Giza
Maxine, digital producer, and her beloved cat, "Flynn-Rider." Flynn-Rider was adopted last year from Second Chance Animal Shelter in Brookfield, Massachusetts. He is a feisty little guy who has brought his family much happiness.
52/92
Charis Dalessio
Here's graphic designer Charis Dalessio and her cat. She says, I adopted Marcy from the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA almost three years ago. Since that day, she has been my loyal best friend. No matter where I am, Marcy isn’t too far behind. Or ahead. Or stealing my hair bands. Or sitting RIGHT in front of the TV. No one will ever know how hard it was to take this photo with her as she is strangely camera shy. Either way, it’s never a dull moment and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
53/92
Alysha Palumbo
Our family has adopted two shelter dogs over the years - 12-year-old Maggie and 8-year-old Brady. Our "first born" Maggie is a golden retriever/yellow lab/cocker spaniel mix who was adopted by Alysha as a surprise for Chris's birthday from a humane society near Traverse City, MI. Brady - a.k.a. "The Franchise" - is a feist terrier who was adopted from a shelter near Buffalo, NY after Alysha did a story there and fell in love with him as a brother for Maggie. Adopting them was not only an awesome experience for us, but our 3-year-old son Bryce has grown up with them and not only loves playing fetch and running around with them, but he has learned at a young age to respect and love all animals.

Monica Madeja
This is my dog Miley. I adopted her from a shelter I volunteered at in Missouri. She was brought in as a scared stray terrier, and is a very quick escape artist. In fact the shelter had to use another dog to help corral her once! When I left the state I took her with me. She's been my sidekick through 6 years and lots of moves! (Despite this photo she is an independent lady and hates being held!)

Kristin Dube

66/92
Tim Kelley
Our family pets are Maine Coon Cats. Bode is red silver tabby and Mitt is classic red mackerel. They are not only best friends to my wife Janet and me, but they are also besties to each other. We got Bode first, but because we travel a lot, we wanted Bode to have a buddy. So we found Mitt for him. It worked out great. Bode is the smart, somewhat aloof big brother who nurtures and plays with Mitt. They have quite distinct personalities. Mitt will say hello to everyone all the time, Bode is skittish and takes a while to warm up to new human friends.

Nohely Portillo
Here's IT specialist Nohely Portillo and her dog Cookie. She says, ". I have had her since she was 2 months old, I picked her because she stood out to me over any other dog. 7 Years later, she is very attached to me and wants to follow me everywhere I go."
92/92
Nohely Portillo
Cookie and I have a lot of fun together and I often do a lot of silly things with her. I often joke that the Cat I have is her Pet because the only reason I got a cat was to keep her company while I am at work. Yes they get along. I hope that through her I can help break the stigma that others have towards Pitbull’s. She is a great people dog.
