BJ
"Hello! When I came to ADL they found out I had an ear infection, heartworms, and a chemical burn on my body.  The ADL veterinarian team treated me immediately and I’m now doing so much better! I am clear of my ear infection, I’m currently going through heartworm treatment and my burns are quickly healing.  Overall, I am a chill dog, especially when I’m in a car. I will sit patiently in the backseat and enjoy the ride. I like yummy treats and like most bulldogs will drool like mad for them. I even know how to sit for treats and I know I can learn more tricks. Nobody knows what I went through before I got here but I’m ready to leave the past behind me. I’m now looking forward to a bright future in a loving home of my own with someone who will love me forever."

Madrid
"Hi, I’m Madrid! I am a nice and friendly kitty who’s still young and full of energy. I was one of the pets that ADL picked up from SPCA of Brazoria County in Lake Jackson, TX. I was already in the shelter looking for someone to adopt me and then hurricane Harvey came around. After that horrible Harvey left, I was transferred to ADL so that room could be made for pets at SPCA who were displaced by Harvey. Now I am looking for a home here at ADL, I hope I can find my person soon!"

Buster
“Don’t panic, that’s not a green spider crawling over my eye. It’s stitches – I just had an eye removed. It wasn’t doing me any good anyway, since I couldn’t see out of it, so I don’t mind. I’m a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, always ready to play. I love toys and treats and would love an active family that likes to keep busy. I’m smart too – I can sit, shake and fetch on command, especially if I know there’s a treat waiting for me. If you love to play as much as I do, please come see me – I’ll be right here waiting and wagging!”

Byron
“Bryon is a great name for a gentlemanly cat like me! I’m FIV positive and I do have other health issues that you should ask the staff about when you come see me. You are coming to see me right? How could you resist having a true gentleman in your home? I’m also loving and very sweet. I know you’re sold now so I’ll see you soon!”

Myra

Adam
“I am one of your larger chihuahuas but I still like to be held. I also like being on the ground so either way is okay with me. Like all dogs, I just like attention. I get excited at the opportunity to be out and about but overall, I have an even tempered personality that won’t overwhelm you.”

Marcello
“I am a perfect mix. Not just my breed but also my personality. I’m active and playful while also being a real snuggle bug who loves to love. I am FIV positive but this doesn’t mean I won’t live a long, happy life. I suggest you read about it and consider giving us FIV cats a chance! I would love to show someone how fabulous I am. Could you be that person?”
