  • This is Trixie.⠀
We think she’s playing an #aprilfools joke on us. Asking for food when she clearly has a full bowl right behind her. You can’t fool us Trixie!⠀
But, she’s not typically a “trickster”. She really enjoys people watching, cat watching, bird watching and every other watching hobby you can think of. She’s a sweet, patient and affectionate lady under her fluffy coat and pointy ears. ⠀
Come and make an appointment to visit Trixie in the cattery this week.

  • Our puppers at the Paul Jolly Center got a surprise visit from a local Starbucks today; coming with a plethora of their infamous Puppacinos to share with all the good boys and girls. Our canine friends got to spoil in all the sweetness filled in each of these cups!⠀
We are very appreciative for this kind gesture and donation.  #adoptdontshop #animaldefenseleague #adloftx #puppacino #dogsofinstagram #doggosofinstagram

  • Our second fundraiser is the ADL $10 Challenge!!!⠀
This initiative provides a simple way for our supporters within the community to band together using small donation amounts to make a big impact. We have seen that individual contributions can lead to big waves when it comes to saving lives.⠀
If every visitor to our website opted to click and donate $10, the community participation would generate the funding necessary to sustain our programs throughout the remainder of the year.⠀
