  • Meet Nicolette! She's our North Park Subaru Pet Star of the week! This lovable lady is very friendly and kind. She loves to meet new people and to lay down in floors that keep her bottom cool! Would you like to open your heart and home to Nicolette? Then visit our main campus and ask to meet her! Nicolette is a 6-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Check out her pet profile to learn more about her:
North Park Subaru is sponsoring Nicolette and covering her adoption fee. #AdoptDontShop #ShareTheLove
  • Happy Hump Day! We've got some tail waggin' good news to get you through the mid-week slump!
Molly has found her forever home! If you can recall, Molly was the dog we received from our partners @sanantonioacs who we believe may have suffered from thermal or chemical burns.
The combination of her vibrant, playful disposition along with the diligent care of our hospital staff is what turned this terribly sad situation into a shelter success story. Dogs have an incredible ability to be resilient and positive during the toughest of times. At ADL, we believe this is something we can all learn from. Pets like Molly are a true source of inspiration for us all!

  • This time of year can be really tough for any shelter in Texas, as it is a time when resources and adoptions are low. It is also a time when we begin to see a mass influx of puppies and kittens. Eep!
We go through TONS of items every day to ensure we take the best possible care of our residents. We also provide our Foster Volunteers with all necessary items for their foster pet including bedding, toys, wipes, medication, and food. This city-wide donation drive will help us to stock up on some very important items and keep our pet’s tails wagging!
