Bailey, a 5-year-old neutered domestic shorthair at the Tracy Animal Shelter, needs a home. Several other cats and kittens are also available for adoption. The staff is seeking donations of canned food for dogs and cats, dog toys, puppy and kitten formula and flea shampoo. The shelter, 370 Arbor Road, is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For information: 831-6364 or

Rollie, a sensitive 1-year-old, weighs about 45 pounds. He was found abandoned and starving. These days, he knows how to sit, go to his kennel and use a doggie door, and he likes to give kisses and comfort his friends by laying his head in their laps. Rollie plays with other dogs of all sizes and shows no inclination to chase cats. He is neutered and dewormed and has an identification microchip and all his vaccines. Animal Rescue of Tracy is a nonprofit, all-volunteer rescue group that has pet adoption fairs for dogs and cats from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays in the Macy’s wing of the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. For information: 642-4324 or

Harley is a 5-year-old neutered miniature pinscher-Chihuahua mix. He weighs 8 to 10 pounds and is an affectionate lap dog.

People for Pets hosts adoption fairs between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturdays at PetSmart, 2477 N. Naglee Road. For information: 933-6274.
