Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"
Fate
"I’m such a silly girl! I can be bashful but then I’ll act like a tough lady when big dogs and people walk past my kennel. But then…I get taken out while being talked to like a baby and I’ll instantly melt into any arms that hold me. I’m a bit shy and the staff is working with me to break out of my shell and so far I’m starting to warm up to people. However, I hope I don’t stay here too long that I get the chance to warm up to everyone! I’d much rather focus on warming up to my forever person in my forever home. Please consider giving silly “tough” me a chance to melt into your arms!"
Jewel
"Just like the singer Jewel, I’ll sing this lyric to you, “I know that you love me and soon you will see, you were meant for me and I was meant for you.” Okay so you won’t actually hear me singing that song but please know that I’ll have those exact thoughts when I meet you. I generally feel that way towards most people because I love everyone and I’m confident you’ll love me right back! I’m a very laid-back type of gal who enjoys sun bathing and relaxing. I’m always happy to receive neck rubs and will happily purr when you shower me with attention. Please give me the chance to find out if you’re meant to be the best friend for me!"
Keke
"Hi, I’m a friendly and very social girl who loves treats and of course plush toys! I truly enjoy getting to meet and become friends with a human pal. I truly love to explore and encounter all the different smells out there but I love it, even more, when I have a forever family keeping me company letting me know that I am loved. Maybe you can be my forever best friend!"
Dave
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple, you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"
Louise
"Let me just be honest: I’m going to “nope” out of any situation because I’m an extremely shy cat. I’m very timid and prefer to keep to myself. That doesn’t mean there isn’t perfect person out there to help me grown in confidence. Is that person you?"
Herby
"Hi there! My name is Herby the Love Bug! Go ahead and tell me how much you love me, I’m all ears! They’re pretty big but I think it makes me look adorable! Don’t you think so too? I’m a charming, playful, goofy, and super curious little guy! I would love to go on adventures with you!"
Henry
"Don’t I have a great smile? I sometimes flash this happy smile at people. I’m a good boy with a calm personality. I enjoy relaxing and taking slow walks in the park. ADL treated me for heartworms and I’m doing a lot better now. However, I need to take it easy because I have heart issues but this won’t stop me from being a good dog to you. I’ll be perfect for someone who is looking for an easy-going companion to be a couch potato with. I’m looking for that special person who will give a sweet dog like me a chance at living in a forever home that I can call my own."
Quiche
"I can be a savory Quiche but I will need to “bake” for a long time in a new home. I’m very bashful and prefer to hide away instead of socializing. So go slow with me and when I say slow I mean that literally. Sudden movements startled me. I just need someone with lots of love and patience to take me home. Is that person you?"
Marble
"Don’t let the gray muzzle fool you. You know what they say – 50 is the new 30. I’m 49 in dog years (if you believe that stuff), so I’m quite the young lady! It’s right there on my sign: “Still has plenty of energy.” If you don’t believe it, take me for a walk. I’m not so ill-mannered that I would pull you. I seem to have been properly raised: I am leash-trained, of course, and I am gentle and even-tempered. Just please don’t call me old. I’d much rather be called your dog."

Sashi Marie
"Don’t you think I’m beautiful? There is so much of me to love, and I have so much love to give! I’m on a weight-loss journey, as they like to say here, but even when I reach the end of it, I won’t have lost any of that love – it will just be concentrated in a smaller package. I am full of sweetness, and hugs are my specialty. Sniffing around while on walks is lots of fun. I’m not supposed to have treats, but I will sit on command anyway. Wouldn’t it be great to help me go from full-figured to petite?"
Señor
"Hola, me llamo Señor! It’s great to see you and hopefully be able to meet you. I am as lucky as they come; before I came into ADL I had the roughest time out on my own. I was surprised at how bad I was; I was told that I had been struggling with severe dermatitis, ear mites, and hair loss from sarcoptic mange. I know sounds horrible right! Well on top of all that, I was told, I had entropion which is a condition where my eyelids fold inwards causing me great discomfort. And as one condition kept coming after another I was also told that I had been diagnosed with FIV. As you might imagine, when I came in, I was quite the grumpy whiskers especially since I could barely see the humans around me! But now, I am soooooo much better and I feel soooo happy! Estoy muy muy muy feliz! I really would love to put all this crazy past experience behind me and find a forever home where I can find a forever family to love me and enjoy all my antics and my Spanish. I do have to go with another furry friend that either has FIV or would have to be an only cat. We should get to know each other better so we can learn all about one another!"
Nicolette
“I am a lady who loves to go for good long walks but the Texas weather can be a bit too much at times for me so I love a good cold floor to lay on when it’s just too hot outside. I enjoy riding in cars and being with my human friends but I am respectful and try not to lay on the seats. I love meeting new people and getting to know them because there’s nothing better than getting new friends! I am hoping to meet you sometime soon so we can be a forever family!”
Bonnie
"I’m trying my best to not be so shy around people but can you blame me? I was found roaming a neighborhood with nowhere to go and was brought here to look for a home. I’m looking forward to the day I find that special person for me, so that I can have a nice home where I can relax with them. I’m sure within time, I’ll learn to break out of my shell and show my true self. Will you give me a chance to get to know you and be your best friend?"
Ram
"I think they call me Ram because I like to ram my head into people’s legs. That’s my way of requesting immediate attention from humans! I was roaming around the hospital here and they ended up taking me in. I am a friendly kitty but I tend to get grouchy around other felines. That’s why I would prefer a home where I can be the only furbaby to receive all the attention from my human! There is something special about my heart that the staff can tell you more about here. One thing I can tell you for sure is that my heart will have plenty of affection for you. Will you give me a chance to be your best feline friend? Please, say yes and let’s meet!"
Katana
"I am an affectionate and playful goofball! I like to be around people and I prefer a home where I’m the only furbaby in the family. Sometimes my attention span is a little short when I’m outside for a walk because I like to check out all the action going on at ADL. I want to find an active person that I can go on adventures with and someone who will cherish me forever!"
Armin
"I’m a rowdy young dog, still growing and maturing and overflowing with puppy energy. I love running and playing, and splashing in water, especially in summer, is the greatest! I need an owner who’s experienced in taking care of dogs like me – dogs with good hearts who love being busy all the time and want to learn how to be good boys. Just like most youngsters, I can throw quite a temper tantrum when I get frustrated, so I need to learn to channel my energy. I bet I’d be great at sports like agility or frisbee. Will you be the one who helps me?"
Tuxedo
"I’m a walking contradiction. How so you ask? Take my name for one. I’m a girl but my name is Tuxedo. Then there’s the fact that one day I can be super affectionate and friendly, rubbing all over people’s legs for attention and the next day I’m shy and scared and have hidden away from the public. The only way to know which cat I am is to come see me today!"
Dillon
"Hello there! You know what I adore? Stuffed animals, chatting, and playtime! I am an enthusiastic and sociable k9 who likes to goof around. I have a dynamic personality that may be too much for some pups to handle. That’s why I would like to meet any potential fur-siblings to see how well we get along. I’m a nice guy who would fit in best with an active family with older children. If you’re looking for a fun furry friend, then give me a chance!"
Bellatrix
"Don’t worry the only spell I will cast on you is for you to love me, I’m not evil sorceress, I’m just a spicy tabby. I love attention but only from humans. I absolutely do not like other cats so it would be best if I am the only cat in the home. that home should be yours. Come get me today so I don’t have to put a spell on you!"
