Save-A-Pet Adoption Center, 31664 N. Fairfield Road, Grayslake, has dogs and cats available for adoption to approved homes. Call (847) 740-7788 or visit

Meet Sassi, a beautiful 11-year-old cat that was found with no identification. She is a sweet girl that only has one thing on her to-do list: finding a family this holiday season. While she often "guards" the door to the cat room, she sometimes get caught napping on the job. So if you wish list includes finding a feline friend and saving a life, Sassi would be happy to help you cross that off your list. She is affectionate but also doesn't mind doing her own things. She has a little playful side that emerges at times and is quite entertaining.

Other pets looking for a home are:

• Meatball is a 10-year old black lab mix that loves to play fetch with plush squeaky toys. This handsome boy spent many years locked in a basement, yet still loves life. In the summer, he also enjoyed jumping in the baby pool. He just wants to be your single canine love.

• Rodeo is an 8-year-old Collie mix that spent most of her life chained outside with no food or water. Thanks to Save-A-Pet's humane investigators, she now is enjoying life and not just surviving. This gorgeous golden dog loves long walks and enjoys a nice brushing and is looking for a home as the only dog.

Both Meatball's and Rodeo's adoption fees are 50 percent off.
