"I love to smile and really enjoy treats! I feel so happy when I receive a treat, makes me feel so loved. I will even sit for a treat if you ask me to sit. I can take a bit to warm up to you because I am rather shy but once you and I start hanging, you will see all my love!"
"Hi! I am originally from Houston, TX but because of Hurricane Harvey I was brought down to this great city. I am ready to find my forever home! I’m a cute little girl who loves to go for walks. I love people so so much and I feel much more comfortable with kids than other animals. Please take me home and spoil me you will not regret it!"
"Look into my eyes…you are getting sleepy…you will come visit me….you will adopt me…FOREVER! I am more than ready to find a forever home! Come by and meet me to see how well we get along!"
"Hello all, my name is Helga. I have difficulty walking so most of the time I’d rather just be relaxing indoors enjoying the warmth of the room. However, I do enjoy going out for a walk, but please take it slow with me. I like to take my time and enjoy the breeze. Come to ADL so we can spend time together!"
"I’m named after a Greek Titan who stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to mankind. All I’m trying to give mankind is my love and adoration. I may steal your heart but take a look at this face and tell me it’s not worth the risk? Be a risk taker and come adopt me today, I dare you!"
"Hello! Be ready to give me a chin rub when you see me because those make me happy! I can usually be found sitting on a high self but don’t hesitate to pet me because I’ll be absolutely okay with that. I’m like most cats and like to cat nap most of the day. If you’re looking for a friendly feline friend, then consider giving me a chance because I would love to be your friend!"
"Some of us just need someone to let us know that everything will be okay. I’m one of those dogs. I’m a shy girl and I’m especially camera shy. I’m hoping that I can find someone who will be willing to let me warm up to them and be their buddy. Is their room in your heart for a shy sweet dog like me? I hope so! Please give me a chance to be your friend."
"I enjoy good long walks, I keep getting told that I’m a very calm good dog which makes me just so so happy! I do rather be just you and I, other dogs make me a little uncomfortable and would much rather enjoy my time alone with you! Come down to ADL so we can get to know each other!"
"I’m fairly new around here so I keep to myself. If you start petting me, I’ll loosen up and become your friend. I’m sure I’ll become more outgoing once I find my home and settle down. Now I just need to find someone who’ll take me home with them and love me forever!"
"Hi, I’m Dexter! You want to play?! I usually wiggle and smile when I see people. That’s why I’m smiling in my photos! I was happy to have my photo taken and be around people. Come by and see how excited I get when you meet me! I’ll be ready to greet you with a smile!"

"Hi, I’m Bruiser! I enjoy going for walks and exploring the outdoors. I’ve recently learned that I also enjoy riding in cars too. I’ve been told that I’m sweet, and I’m sure you’ll agree after you meet me. I’m the type of dog that’ll lean on you and give you kisses on your cheek!"
“Hi, I’m Frappe! I’m pretty shy and timid. I want to be adopted but I’m very observant. Someday maybe someday a family could take me some and care for me.”
"I’m a strong playful young lady that enjoys to explore and play with others. I feel much more comfortable becoming friends with other humans and would love to find a best friend! I enjoy treats so much, I’d do anything for a one! If you stick around and get to know me long enough, you’ll see that I have a rather goofy, funny, and outgoing personality that you will definitely fall in love with. How about we meet soon and become best pals!"
"Wouldn’t you love to be the envy of your neighborhood by owning a blue dog? That’s me! Yes, I am blue! I know, I look gray, but in technical terms I am a blue brindle. And if you know anything about dogs, you know brindles are the best. At least some people say so. At any rate, I am stunningly handsome and quite the athlete. If you enjoy running, or keeping active in any way, we would best buds. I’m very social too – no shyness here. So come on over and let’s go for a little run and see how we get along."
Hi, I’m Disney. I was brought to ADL from Best Friends Animal Society who was working with ADL to transfer Hurricane Harvey pets into the shelter. Now I’m here and ready to find my forever home. I am a nervous kitty! Please go slow with me when we meet. I’m waiting for a special person who’ll give a shy kitty like me a chance to be loved forever. If you think you can be that special person for me, then please consider giving me a chance!
"I’m a very active boy and you won’t see me stay still for long. I like playing, and I enjoy dogs and kids over 12. I do have a problem with a disc in my back and that means I shouldn’t play rough or jump from high surfaces. But so far I haven’t had any trouble, and I plan to keep it that way. I would love to go home with you and be spoiled and loved."
"Hello hello, Maui is my name, and I got to say it is great that you’re reading about me. I am as friendly as can be and as welcoming as can be! I love hugs but then again who doesn’t love snuggly hugs. It will be the best time ever to have you come over so we can meet and get to know each other!"
"Hi, I’m Nancy! Just look into my soulful green eyes and give me the chance to win your heart over! I am a sweet and nice kitty. I haven’t been here too long and I hope that I can charm my way into my person’s house soon! Now where could my person be? Could it be you?"
"Hi, I’m Lovebug! I came to ADL on Valentine’s Day to look for my forever home. I am a shy little kitty but that’s because I’m fairly new around here and unsure of what expect. So can you blame me? I’m very good at hiding but don’t give up on searching for me too soon. You can even ask one of the people here where I could be. I promise, I do want to meet you! I just need a slow introduction. I’m actually smaller than the average adult cat so don’t be surprised how small I am compared to the others around here. Visit me soon and please give me the chance to be your little Lovebug."
"I didn’t mean to look so sad in my photo but I’m new to this place and camera shy. I’m looking for a nice person who will be willing to give a shy kitty like me a chance to be their feline companion. I’d much prefer to be in a comfy home with someone who will love me just as I am. Could you possibly be that special person for me?"
