20 Adoptable Animals in San Antonio That Would Look Great Next to a Christmas Tree

No, we're not encouraging gifting an animal since that doesn't always result in responsible pet ownership. But we are saying that these cats and dogs would love to be part of the excitement of the holidays. What do you say? Stop by the Animal Defense League to find the furry one to complete your family.

Kane
"I am a big goofy guy that’s packed full of energy. I tend to get a bit rambunctious and nosey when I’m out for a walk. I can’t help it, I’m just always so curious of everything around me. I’m very friendly around all people but not so much towards cats. I prefer to not be around cats. I enjoy being in the company of humans, it makes me so happy! I’m always excited when I see people; I’m always hoping that someone will take me home. I really want a forever home where I can be active and loved. Maybe you can provide that home for me?"

"Not only am I a pretty lady, but I’m also a cuddle bug! I enjoy cuddling, leaning up against legs, and going for walks. I LOVE treats and I know how to sit for them too!

Triscuit
"You’ll probably need to ask the staff where to find me when you visit the cattery because I’m good at hiding. Why do I hide? Well, I’m a shy kitty and this environment is new to me. It’s hard to say why exactly I’m a shy kitty around here but that doesn’t mean that I’ll be the same in a home of my own. All I want is to move into a calm and peaceful home where I can take it easy with my human. If I can be given that chance, I’m sure my true personality will blossom!"

"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”

Gizmo
"I was found as a stray wandering the streets, now I’m here at ADL searching for my perfect home. I am an independent type of guy who will mind my business most of the time. Sometimes I’ll be in the mood for attention from people, but most times, not so much. I can usually be found crawling around in the rafters up top in the cattery. So be sure to look up to meet me!"
