He does well in a car and walks well on a leash. Clyde is looking for his forever home and would love to find it this week! Interested in meeting Clyde? Visit our main campus to meet him! North Park Subaru is sponsoring Clyde and covering his adoption fee. #AdoptDontShop #ShareTheLove #subiedogs #subarudogs #subaralove #dogsoftexas #dogstagram #cutedog #satx #sanantoniotx #sanantonio #adoptadl #adoptadog #shelterpetsrock

  • ADL will be hosting our first Trainer Tuesday LIVE on Facebook at 5:30 PM today! Tune in to learn the latest pet advice from our lead trainer, Jamie Gibson. #trainertuesday #dogtrainingtips #dogtraining #dogtricks #humaneeducation #adoptdontshop
  • Earth Day is almost here! Here's an #EarthDay pet tip: Don't throw those unwanted tennis balls and t-shirts away! They can bring hours of joy to a dog! Turn those unwanted t-shirts in your closet into t-shirt rope toys for your dog or even ADL dogs! There are many online tutorials that teach you how. As you can see, some dogs like Colby here prefer tennis balls over rope toys. That's why it's great to have a variety! #donate #pettoys #diy #recycle #reuse #dogstagram #dogsoftexas #dogsofinsta #playtime #shelterdogsrock
