Meet Ruthie.

Ruthie is a 1-year-old red and white hound and terrier mix available for adoption at TAILS Humane Society in DeKalb.

She is naturally playful, curious and trusting, and has been nicknamed "Waggles" by the staff at TAILS because her tail is always going.

She is spayed, and available for adoption at TAILS today.

Then there's Shadow, who is also available for adoption.

Shadow is a 5-year-old black domestic shorthair mix who was brought to TAILS because of the health of her previous owner.

She is a bit shy, but is a level-headed cat that likes to be pet from head to tail.

She is spayed and gets along with other cats.
