Calling all animal lovers!

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

  • Sophia

    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.

  • Dozer

    Meet Dozer, a puppy with a temperament as endearing as his picture! His estimated age is 19 weeks and we expect him to become a 50+ pounds when he is full grown.

    Dozer is a special boy looking for a special family. Dozer will require a caretaker who understands he is special. His caretaker must also recognize despite his special needs, he should be treated just like any other dog.

  • Java

    Meet Java, a friendly, energetic 5 year old pittie mix. Java is around 45 pounds and is a sweet, wiggly, playful girl. She is housebroken and crate trained and nondestructive when she's loose in the house.

    Java loves people, especially kids! She pulls a bit on the leash out of excitement, but would probably quickly improve with a bit of practice in a front-attach harness.

  • Darby

    Darby is a handsome, super sweet mixed breed with a great personality. He is 5 years old but you would never know as he doesn’t look a day over 3…at least that’s what he will tell you! Darby is a perfect size weighing in at around 40 pounds, ideal for sharing forts in the backyard for scheming summer shenanigans. 

    Darby loves to go for walks! When he sees the leash and harness come out he is ready to hit the pavement. Tennis balls are his absolute FAVORITE, if you are up to it he will fetch that ball for you as long as you let him. He knows his basic commands of sit, down, and a little bit of stay.

  • Rebecca

    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!

  • Micki

    Micki is a loving orange and white tabby who has white mittens and a beautiful ringed tail. He's nine years old and a total lover. Micki is affectionate, handsome and trusting of humans.

    Micki is very submissive (he's a lover not a figher!) and does not do well with other dominant cats. Dogs are also a no go for this handsome dude. Micki is currently on medication to help him cope with living with his foster brother (dominant cat - they are completely separated, but Micki is still uneasy), but could be weaned off of these meds shortly after adjusting to his new home.

  • Sable

    Sable is a sweet, friendly house panther, all black with golden eyes, and about 8 years old. She was a little shy after she arrived in the Adoption Center. Now that she's adjusted, this beauty is back to her chatty self, rubbing against your legs, asking for pets, and winning hearts.

  • Hazel

    Hazel is a gorgeous medium-haired tabby girl, about 2 years old, who's content to quietly observe from the back of her cage while she acclimates to the Adoption Center. When she's feeling comfortable, Hazel is typically easygoing and enjoys face scritches. Hazel and her best friend Myrtle were rescued together in Somerville, are bonded, and would love to find a home together. We are really looking for a home who would love to have these two together as a bonded pair.

  • Cornbread

    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.
