  • fter being surrendered on January 29, 2015, Ginger Spice is now the longest termed resident at the Animal Defense League of Texas. She's really a sweet cat that needs a special person to meet her and fall in love. Ginger Spice is the type of cat that attaches to her one person and wants to be around them most of the time. Does Ginger Spice have days where she does not want to be social? Yeah, but most cats have those days, right? The only thing that we can attribute to Ginger Spice being looked over is that she's got a kidney disease. It's called "Early Renal Disease, " and it's not affecting her life nor is she on any medication for the condition at this time. Will she need medical attention in the future? That is possible, but you'd need to consult your vet on when that may occur. We hope that someone will open their heart and home to this sweet angel. She deserves it. #petsofadl

  • Hi, I'm Julie. Have you met the fantastic staff here at the Animal Defense League of Texas? They saved my life twice, you know? How do you say “thank you” for that? I will try to say thank you with copious amounts of licks and cuddles. When the staff brought me to ADL, I had a broken jaw that had fused my mouth shut. Yep, that makes it hard to eat food, and I began to lose weight. The doctors said that I needed an expensive surgery that would cost a lot. Thankfully there was Dr. Giles at South Texas Veterinary Specialists that agreed to conduct the operation at a much lower cost. So the staff at ADL reached out to the community, and in one weekend all of the money was raised so that I could have a second chance at life. I’m so happy that every pitched in to help little ole me. The doctors did a fantastic job, I have healed, and now I’m ready to be adopted and to see my forever home. If you decide to share a treat with me, I will take it from your hand ever so gently. Some may call me a social butterfly because I just want to meet everyone! Take me for a walk and I promise to give you kisses, love, and maybe some slobber. Visit my pet profile @
  • Meet Harriet! She’s @northparksubie's Pet Star of the week!  It doesn't take much to make sweet Harriet smile, especially if you have a yummy treat for her! She's energetic, playful and gets along well with everyone. She does great in a car and may even jump in your lap to get a closer look out the window. Harriet is an 8 yr. old, Jack Russell Terrier mix. She is heartworm positive and her treatment is covered by ADL. She's available for adoption at our 11300 Nacogdoches Rd. location.
North Park Subaru is sponsoring Harriet and covering her adoption fee.
