In late April, the Current's cover story was about the relationship between the city's no-kill status and stray animals, which still plague certain neighborhoods. If you haven't yet, read it here.

The cover image featured six adoptable pups from the Animal Defense League of Texas. In the weeks since the story ran, some of those dogs were adopted, and others are still looking for a forever home. Here's an update:

  • Josh Huskin
  • DiNozzo
DiNozzo was adopted before the story even published. The puppy, a labrador and shepherd mix, is happily situated in a new home.

  • Josh Huskin
  • Sisco
Sisco, a five-year-old Great Dane, is still looking for a home. He needs lots of attention from a single adult without other pets. Sisco is a handful (literally, at over 100 pounds), but is smart and knows how to sit, lay down and shake. 

  • Josh Huskin
  • Bernie
Bernie the Chihuahua is currently in long-term foster care.

  • Josh Huskin
  • Haylee
Haylee, a labrador mix, is still available for adoption. Haylee needs space to be active — someone who spends a lot of time outdoors or has land where she can run around would be perfect for her.

  • Josh Huskin
  • Joan
Joan, who's a mix of a beagle and other breeds, has a new home. The two-year-old pup was recently adopted.

  • Josh Huskin
  • Chelsea
Chelsea is a chilled-out retriever mix. You'll want to keep an eye on the ADL website for her. Although she's still at the ADL, she's currently unavailable for adoption because of a medical procedure. 

There are of course other dogs available for adoption with the ADL (and cats too). Click here to see a full list of all the adoptable animals at their facility. For information on other local rescue and adoption agencies, click here or here.
