  • Hi! My name is Annie and I am about eight years old (maybe a little older!). If you look through this album until the end you will see that when I first got here I had a really big tumor! It was removed which makes me feel way better but the cancer cells spread to my lungs. The doctors don't know exactly how much time I have left but everyone who knows me would really love to see me get to spend that time in a home. I am really laid back and my favorite thing is just to lie by my person's feet. Do you think maybe you could give me somewhere to crash for my golden years? If you can or you just want to find out more about me, please email
  • Rover is our @northparksubie #PetStar of the week! Isn’t he handsome? Rover is a big 87lb. guy with a big heart! He enjoys car rides, treats, going for walks, and loves people. He gets along well with children and dogs. Rover is a 3 yr. old Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix. Visit the Animal Defense League of Texas to meet him!
