"I am an amazing loving puppy that loves treats and loves to play with toys. I am pretty good about being held but the intense stare you see in my photo is because I was looking at a squeaky toy and I really, really wanted it. I was even crying a bit to get to it. If you are in the market to adopt a young one like me, well I am waiting right here for you."
"Hi, I’m Quil! I’m a really mellow guy who enjoys hanging around and enjoying the little things in life. I have my playful side as well and love anything I can chase!"
"Hi, I’m Cormac! If you’re looking for a young and energetic skipper, then let me tell you…I am the one for you! I love treats, belly rubs, and kisses! I like to greet everyone with a big smile and if given the chance, I’ll give you lots of smooches on the cheek. So be prepared for lovable me to shower you with affection. I can’t wait to meet you!"
"Hi, there, I’m Summer! I can be affectionate when I want to be. I’m still fairly new here, so I just need time to adjust and finally show my true, loving, personality! Come by and meet me today!"
"I think I got my name because I am cute as a dumpling. Just look at these ears of mine! I’m an active and happy puppy who jumps around a lot when I see people…or toys…or treats. Anything, really. If you like to smile a lot and play a lot then I would be a great choice for you!"
"Oh, hello. I am Jack and I am one cool cat! I love to lounge around in the cattery and sunbathe. I am easygoing and enjoy a good petting from the humans. If you’re looking for a chill and handsome cat, then I’m your man!"
"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!"
"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?"
"Look at how handsome I am! I’m a young guy, and I think there’s still puppy in me with how energetic I am. I can’t help but feel so much joy when I’m out for a walk. So if you take me for a walk, be ready to hold on tight! I’m sure that I can eventually learn to be more calm on the leash. Right now, I’m just so happy to be out of my kennel and it shows. I will fit in great with an active family and will bring so much joy to a home. If you’re looking for an outgoing furry friend, then please visit me!"
"Hello there! I am Mr. Lasagna! I am a curious and lovable boy. It’s hard to believe I was once living on the streets. Now I’m here at ADL, and I’m more than ready to find a loving home where I will be cherished forever. Come by and meet me soon and you’ll see how wonderful I am!"

“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!”
"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?"
"Howdy! I’m a very energetic girl who loves walks on the beach and attention. I love to smell everything on sight because I’m a very curious pup. If you think you’re the one for me, then why wait any longer, come meet me ASAP!"
"Hi, I’m Dwight! I was found by a nice person and now I’m here to find my forever home. I am shy but that’s only because everything around me is so new to me. Will you give me a chance to be your friend?"
"Would you like to meet a really nice guy who is also a good boy? I walk well on a leash and am old enough to have learned good manners in other ways. I’m curious and love to look around when I am out and about. I am so eager to meet people that sometimes a creep up a bit on the chain link of my run. You can’t blame me for having enthusiasm, can you? I’m a happy guy but I sure will be even happier when I have a home of my own. If it has dogs and cats, that will be probably be okay with me, too."
"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!"
"I’m pretty irresistible with my gorgeous eyes and white fur. Just as a caution, please go slow with me. This is not because I’m shy, far from it, but because I get a little overstimulated when I get petted. Slow, relaxing strokes works the best. Anything else gets me all jazzed up. I’m sure once we meet we can figure each other out quickly so you should stop by today!"
"I’m a dainty girl who could be thought of as a fluffy cloud but I do have some “thunderstorm” in me. I’m a little shy so I do not like when someone rushes up to me. Please take your time with me and I promise that it is worth it! I can be very sweet and loving if you give the chance to relax. That chance could be in your home if you want!"
"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."
"Hi, I’m Desiree! Okay, so I know I have an annoyed expression, but I’m only making that face because I don’t enjoy having a camera in my face. I am a shy gal, so be sure to go slow with me. I would love to have a calm home where I can relax with a nice human. Please give me a chance to be yours!"
