WASHINGTON -- Fall is a great time to go hiking with a new dog, adopted from a local shelter. Or to snuggle on the couch, feeding carrots to your new pet rabbit. Or rabbits -- we've got some single rabbits looking for new homes; there's also a pair, Pete and Repeat, to be adopted together.

This week's roundup of adoptable animals is full of bunnies and great cats and dogs. There's eight-year-old Shakespeare, a shy Chihuahua, and Lacey, that gorgeous pit bull in the photo up top. Perhaps the dog meant to share your adventures is Dim Sum, a four-year-old Shar Pei who lived in a puppy mill until recently. If cats are more to your liking, take a look at fluffy Zach Macaroni, sophisticated Ms. Callie and 11-year-old Amazon, who's looking for a quiet house where she can enjoy her dotage.

All we like better than fall weather and carrot-eating rabbits is hearing about our readers' new pets, so let us know if you bring home one of these gorgeous animals.
