Meet Francis, one of many pets available for adoption from the Animal Defense League

When I think of pups and cute cats, I don't immediately free associate with hard rock. But the Rock For Paws Festival at Fitzgerald's looks to place the two closer together.

On August 8, Rock For Paws features 17 bands raising money for the Animal Defense League of Texas. Founded in 1934, the Animal Defense League is a no-kill shelter with a 12-acre campus dedicated to the humane treatment and adoption of dogs and cats. Be warned if you visit their website — you might spend a good chunk of the workday looking at adorable, adoptable pets.
