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 Lorenzo, a three-year-old adorable stocky Puggle weighing around 18 pounds.
He's doing well transitioning into his foster home and would like to play with their resident dog. Lorenzo’s previous owner invested in training classes and Lorenzo is familiar with some basic commands. His ideal adopter would include a family interested in reenforcing what he has learned and continuing his training.
I'm Butters, a dashing young chihuahua with a contagious smile. I'm going to be turning TWO at the end of August! Will you help me celebrate my birthday?
I'm a *little* chunky at about 13 pounds, house-trained, good with children and dogs, but I kind of like to chase and bark at the cats! I would never hurt them, but I think it's fun to stir them up a bit!
I'm Newt! I'm new here, as I just moved up from Texas. I'm still learning my way around, but I'm up to date on all vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm.
They think I'm under a year old, and I sure have the energy to prove it! I could play all day, follow you around, play with fellow pups, or sleep in your lap. So far I don't know any tricks, but I know I love peanut butter, snuggle time, sleeping in your bed, and going for walks! I'm good on a leash and am friendly with all the strangers outside my house. I'm working hard on being house trained, but will need time and attention to master it. I would sure love a home with another dog! Or with a human who is home all day. I've met and played with all sizes of dogs, and have even met the house cat.
My name is Sadie and I am about 5 years old. I’m a pittie mix (I think!) and really want to be your new best friend. I’m up to date on all my vaccinations, including heart worm and flea/tick and I’m already spayed.
I do OK with dog saavy cats and I’m ok with other dogs that live in my foster home. I'm still learning how to play but I have so much energy and really want to be on the trails, out running, or going on adventures! The couch might be my new favorite place when I'm in the house though!
Do you like big mutts with huge smiles? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs of love I am the largest lap dog you could ever hope to meet. Yep, you read that right! I just love to sit in my foster dad's lap. It was love at first sight for me.
At just 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and consistent training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be.
Edward is a sweet, long-haired black kitty, about four years old, who has a temporary button and stitches under his chin while he's recovering from a broken jaw. Despite the trauma, he's a kind, affectionate boy and deserves a fresh start off the streets in a loving furever home.
What a change a loving environment makes! Since moving into a foster home, two-year-old Cabernet (also known as Grayson) has blossomed into a confident, loving cat. Initially quite shy, he now engages in sessions of intense purring and petting with his foster mom.
Cabernet has also rediscovered the joy of play and can get quite caught up in stalking a good feather toy. He also enjoys soccer, chasing and knocking the ball around, sometimes into the wee hours after the rest of the house has settled down to sleep.
About 3 years old, Sirius Black is a plush and handsome boy with beautiful big eyes. He is friendly, playful, and smart. He loves chin scritches and chasing ribbons! He likes to be king of the castle, but has also done well hanging with some of the other fellas in the black cat crew.
Allie is kind of a diva in the best way possible. She is very curious- she likes to follow you around the house and prefers affection in small doses. She is on the smaller side with a beautiful, soft calico coat that barely sheds.
Sergio & Luigi
Sergio is a big white beauty who can be a little on the shy side while he's acclimating to his new environs. Luigi is his sweet tabby brother who loves to make biscuits.
Sadly, these boys needed to be surrendered after their family's baby developed a severe allergy. They are bonded and need to stay together.
