What is a home without a furry one to make you smile and keep you company? Incomplete, at least to us. Pay the Animal Defense League of Texas a visit and choose a cute cat or adorable dog to take home and have all to yourself. You won't be able to say no once you're there.

Governor
I love treats and have the greatest meow you have ever heard! I can be a little shy but after you pet me for a while, I will follow you wherever you go!
Ireland
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."
Stub Muffin
"I am called Stub Muffin because of my adorably stubby legs! I am a very goofy boy who loves his treats. I am also very sweet and playful pup who enjoys sniffing everything. I am full of love but I also want my stomach to be full of treats. Let’s meet each other and if you present me with a yummy treat I’ll sit and give you some of my loving!"
Gordita
"Haha so funny, I may be a little on the round side but I am totally wonderful. I love to lounge around and be petted. I enjoy getting attention but don’t like to share it with other cats. I can be a bit sassy with other cats but if they leave me alone, I leave them alone. I would be really happy if you came and adopted me today!"
Heidi
"Hey there, I’m Heidi. I’m a loving girl who just happens to be shy so please go slow with me. I’m currently working on building up my confidence and would love an easy going person that I can work on that with. I love treats so come prepared to win my heart."
Onya
"Hello! I’m the beautiful Onya! If you’re looking for a mini black panther to inhabit your home, then I will be purrfect! I’m still rather new around here so I’m getting to know the place, although, I would much rather get to know your place. How about we meet and discuss this possibility?"

Zara
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"
Kassie
"Hello, I am Kassie! A typical day for me is lounging around relaxing. I have a strong preference for a home without other cats. I’m the type of girl who prefers to have cat beds to myself. Even though having cat friend just isn’t my thing, I still wouldn’t mind living with people. As long as they spoil me and love me forever, then I’ll be happy!"
Charlie
"Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m pretty right? I’m pretty on the inside too but you’ll need to give me some time to show you. I have to admit…I do better with the ladies than men, and older kiddos would be best for me. Someone spent a lot of time teaching me tricks during the time I had spent time in a home…adjusting to life in the shelter has made me a bit nervous. Come by and meet me and let’s see how things go!"
Sabrina
"Hi, I’m Sabrina! I’m a sweet and friendly girl with a fluffy tail. I enjoy pets on the head and am looking for a loving home where I can relax. I would love to be your new kitty friend! Come by and meet me so that we can get to know each other."
Jenga
"I’m a happy-go-lucky girl who wants to meet you! I love to give love and am a huge fans of treats. I walk pretty well on a leash, so why don’t you take me out and see my skills!"
Olive
"Hi, I’m Olive! Can you believe I’ve been at ADL for over a year? Crazy, right! I know my person is out there somewhere! Please tell me it could possibly be you! A little about me…I can be a bit shy around new people and places so I may need some time to adjust to my new home. Please don’t let that worry you because before you know it, I am as playful as can be! I love running, exploring, and enjoying my time outdoors. You might catch me rolling around in the grass with a squeaky toy in my mouth because I LOVE to play with toys! I also enjoy a good game of fetch and have impressive skills at catching tennis balls in midair. I’m very treat motivated! I’ll sit for treats and happily stare at you with puppy dog eyes as I wait for the treat. I would fit in best in a home with older considerate children and although I’d prefer to be the only furbaby, I might consider a dog-sibling too. So if you have any potential dog-siblings for me, then let’s set up a meet-and-greet! Overall, I’m a friendly and playful gal who just needs a special person who’ll love me no matter what. I may have a very serious expression when you see me at ADL but there is a silly side to me that you must see! Please give me a chance to show you how fun I can be!"
Captain Americat
"I have a secret to tell you – I am kind of a big deal around here and the staff all love me. I am a very talkative boy who will tell you all about my day if you come in to visit me. I want to be held and loved all the time but if you can't hold me every second of the day, I am also pretty happy exploring and making new kitty friends!"
Glameow
"Being new in the Cattery is not easy. My life has been a little rough until now so I learning to trust again. I need someone with lots of love and patience and I am sure I will blossom into a very loving cat. Are you that someone?"
