|Doc and others are in need of loving homes|
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
Cinnamon is an adorable mix estimated to be two years old and about 45 pounds. She is crate trained, and happy to go in there for food. She will bay to announce she's awake and ready for the day. Cinnamon is working on her leash skills - the world is so fascinating she likes to zig-zag, but with a harness there is minimal pulling. Since Cinnamon loves to learn she would benefit from a leash walking class where she could develop her manners and walk beside a human companion.
Meet Doc, a Great Dane / Weimaraner mix! He’s 6 years old and weighs 70 pounds. Doc has had formal training and has mastered a number of commands. His house manners are impeccable. When given the command “place”, Doc immediately goes to his bed and lies down quietly.
Doc enjoys outdoor activities including hiking off leash, retrieving and swimming. When inside, Doc enjoys belly rubs and snuggling with his toys. Doc’s ideal adopter is an active person, couple or family with children over the age of 10. Although Doc is a gentle giant, small children and fast movements make Doc uneasy and takes a few minutes to warm up to new people.
Every picture has a story .... The eyes are the window to the soul ... what do you see?
Khloe's foster family sees a young dog that is waiting for someone who is gentle kind, compassionate and patient and willing to commit to providing structure and training.
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!
I'm a 3 year old, 19 pound face-licking, couch-cuddling dog you'll ever meet. I love walks and car rides, treats, lying in the sun, body massages, back scratches, and did I mention cuddling with my human? My foster mum calls me silly as I like to amuse myself with my toys but I also like to play fetch and tug with her too. I'm good with dog savvy cats and will sometimes try to play with them. I'm great in the crate and I'm housebroken as long as I'm kept on a strict schedule.
Stilton is a quiet, gentle soul who was a former stray. He's a bit nervous in the adoption center, but warms up to pets if you go slow. Come visit this sweet young guy at the Cambridge PetSmart!

This little bundle of love is looking for the right home! Ellie is a gorgeous, charming girl with a small stature and an incredibly big personality. At one year old, this little cat is still incredibly kittenish and will impress anyone with her daring feats of acrobatics during playtime. Despite her wild streak, she also loves nothing more than to be around people, and will follow you from room to room, always resting nearby and leaping into your arms or lap to cuddle whenever given the chance. She has a loud, sweet purr and loves to trill to announce her presence in a room!
Meet Champagne -- a beautiful, sleek, confident girl who readily approaches for head butts, turns into a purr machine when the petting starts, loves body rubs and good massages, and seems to really enjoy human company, especially when she's curled up in a warm lap.
My name's Puddy. That's Puddy like Puddy-Tat or Puddy like clay, you choose. I answer to both!
I lost my previous home because my owner passed away. It's been a sad time for me, but things are looking up now that I have a new foster home to explore and my purr is back! I'm independent, very gentle, and will let you know when I want some head scratches. You might think I'm shy but I just have a soft meow. Oh, and I'm 8 years young!
Merlot is a young male cat with a beautiful black coat. Merlot came from a home with many other cats and is still getting used to the adoption center, so he is quite nervous. He will need a patient family that will give him time to come out of his shell. We promise he's worth it!
