Belleville Area Humane Society is a temporary home for about 30 to 40 dogs and 35 to 40 cats. Here’s a look at two of the shelter’s A-list animals: Goslin, the beauty queen, and Dots, the sweet pea.

Goslin

Goslin has been at the BAHS longest out of all their residents. She’s a domestic-shorthair calico who loves having her beauty admired by her adoring fans, but is ready to settle down and relax in a forever home. She was adopted as a kitten in 2012, but wound up back at the shelter in 2013, where she’s been ever since.

▪ Age: Five, but still looking three, thank you very much

▪ Favorite pastimes: Looking beautiful, having her tummy rubbed and snuggling

▪ Dislikes: Other cats and loud noises

▪ One song that describes her: “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Rey

▪ Skills: Being pretty and giving affectionate head-bumps

▪ Life motto: Don’t hate me ‘cause I’m beautiful

Goslin, 5, has been at the Belleville Humane Society for four years.

Dots

Dots has been hanging out at BAHS for about a month after being brought in as a stray, so her past is as mysterious as she is. She’s a little bashful around strangers, but loves cuddles and kisses after she gets to know someone. She’s also a bit of a couch potato and enjoys lounging around.
