If you're on the lookout for a new pet for you or your family, look no further.
Whether you want a dog, a cat, or even a furry little friend to complete your home, think adoption first! There are hundreds of lovable pets just waiting for you to take them home in rescue leagues and shelters everywhere.
Check out these 10 pets available for adoption from the Broken Tail Rescue League, below
Meet Ella and Carter! This bonded female/male pair of Chihuahuas that are new to rescue. Their estimated age is four years old. Updated information will be provided as we get to know them.
Based on an initial assessment, it appears the female recently had puppies. Their rescuer had two children under the age of 8.
Attention Lab Lovers, this one’s for you. Meet Floyd, a typical young adult (6 years old) Labrador Retriever weighing in at 60+ pounds filled with energy and love. He’s a bit naughty and very nice.
Floyd is house trained, crate trained and friendly. He loves people and a good game of fetch. Like many Labrador Retrievers, he’s a counter surfer and will help himself to whatever you leave out. Floyd recently underwent surgery to remove a food waste item that created an obstruction.
Sophia is a very, very sweet 4-6 year old chihuahua mix weighing about 10 pounds. She gets along well with dogs and cats, but all she really wants is to be with her person. Sophia follows her foster mom everywhere and at night will dance on her back legs to get her mom over to the couch where they can snuggle together. Sophia will come running from anywhere in the house when she hears her name called! Sophia is good with the teenagers in her foster home, but like many small delicate dogs, she would prefer a home without small children.
Rebecca is a gorgeous adult female chihuahua who is 8-10 years old who is good with dogs and children. For her age, she is very peppy. Her dream home would have a fenced in yard so she could trot and prance around and run very fast!
She is a snuggle bug and snuggles on the couch! She is extremely friendly and very gentle - making her great with children.
Wally is a 9 pound little chihuahua with a lot of love to give. Wally is house trained and does well in his crate while his foster parents are away from home. Wally loves playing with the other 4 dogs in the house above all else. He absolutely loves other dogs and will play endlessly!
Poor Miko. This handsome tuxedo boy recently lost his home after the person who adopted him awhile back had to move into hospice.
Miko is shy with new people, but once he gets to know you, this big boy just wants to show you his belly, get pets, and play!
Mrs. Maisel is a 14 year old beautiful all black lady. She unexpectedly found herself in foster care, but now that she is getting more comfortable she really enjoys being brushed and pet. She has the softest fur! She is very hopeful for a forever home as soon as can be. Are you the patient adopter Mrs. Maisel is looking and hoping for?
Alliby (AKA Allie) is a wonderful girl who wants a home of her own. She is very curious and she loves to follow you around the house. She loves affection and is very friendly once she gets to know you.
Cornbread is a wonderful and amicable cat who'd love nothing more than to spend the entire day by your side the minute you take him home! A polite and well-behaved eight-year-old adult cat, Cornbread is a mellow companion who does not have high energy requirements and loves to chill next to you--though he still has a kittenish disposition when it comes to playing! He has a wealth of affection to give, and would love to show you his many quirks--like yawning with his big toothless mouth or gently tapping your arm when he wants to be pet.
Meet Dottie, a sweet 9-month old kitten searching for her purr-fect forever home!
Dottie is a pretty calico gal with big, soulful eyes who loves to curl up in your lap and purr. She loves cuddling, purring loudly, chicken wet food, mouse toys, and cardboard boxes.
