Dog, cat up for adoption

Macho is a 4-year-old dog who was surrendered because the people who had him were allergic. He is at Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control, at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave. His tag number is A31281268.

The dog weighs 71 pounds, is house and crate trained, playful and knows basic commands such as “sit,” “paw” and “down.”

Adoption hours are weekdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ••

Annie is a shy girl who will need a gentle hand and patience. She is in the care of Northeast Animal Rescue.

The cat becomes a purr machine once someone starts petting her. She likes to sit on laps and sleep in bed.

Annie, 4, is spayed and current on vaccinations, and has tested negative for the feline immunodeficiency and leukemia viruses.
