---- — Dear Santa: We know you’re very busy this time of year getting ready for Christmas, but we want to ask a favor. We need help finding forever homes for some of our dogs and would love for you to work your magic. These dogs have been with us a long time, but they’re not misfits. They’re all wonderful in their own way, and all are deserving of nice homes with families who will love and accept them as they are. These dogs need a Christmas miracle, Santa. Please help them. Sadie is a happy, loving pup. She loves walking, playing fetch, and wrestling with her playmates at the shelter. Sadie would do well in a home where she has another dog to play with and someone at home more of the time. She misses her people, but copes well with canine company. Can you help us, Santa? Sadie has been with us for over 100 days and the staff at the Salem Animal Rescue League is working hard to find her a home for the holidays. Come meet Sadie and the other dogs at the Salem Animal Rescue League during open hours: Thursdays 2 to 7 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 4 p.m. We would also like to mention that SARL currently has plenty of kittens who are also available for adoption!
