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
Hi there! My name is Wiley. (Well, actually, everyone usually calls me ‘Aw, you’re such a cutie pie!’ but that’s a bit of a mouthful, I think.) As a young and trendy 2 year old, I enjoy the important things in life: good walkies, good chewies, and good curled-up-on-the-couch selfies. In fact, a good snuggle is probably my favorite thing - and I may weigh 50 pounds, but I can certainly squeeze onto a lap like any dog half my size.
Kayleigh is a beautiful bulldog mix who weighs 45 pounds and is about one year old. Kayleigh had a tough beginning--she spent six months of her life in a shelter. But now that she's in a home setting, her foster family says "we just love her!"
My name is Simba, and I’m looking for a quiet household to call home! I came from living with the same nice man my entire life, but when he became hospitalized for a long-term illness, he sadly had to ask Broken Tail Rescue to find me a new family.
I'm a 3 year old, 19 pound face-licking, couch-cuddling dog. 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.
Do you like big mutts? If so, I am your man! Weighing in at 85 lbs. I am the biggest 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. A good judge of character, I know what I want when it comes to family. A quiet home with experienced "big dog" people and no young uns would be perfect. Because I was not treated kindly in the past, I need time to feel safe and to establish trust before a lot of demands are placed upon me.
At 2 1/2 years old, I am in doggie adolescence. Like all adolescents I need patience and training to mature into the awesome dog I am destined to be. There are a lot of theories as to my ancestry. Am I a Redbone Coonhound, a Labrador Retriever, a Vizsla or a Rhodesian Ridgeback? Whatever the mixture of breeds, the result is a devastatingly handsome guy.
Stuart is an adorable, silly, energetic and playful young cat. He enjoys being around other cats and follows his foster sister everywhere. He would do best in a home with another young/playful cat.
While Stuart has no trouble being around other cats, he is still getting used to human affections and might be a little timid/scared around humans to begin with. But as you can see in the video, he actually loves cuddling up on the bed and receiving pets. Given that he can be scared, he probably would not be suited to a home with young children.
Holly is a spunky grey and white girl with gold eyes, estimated to be 1 year old. Holly just raised a lovely litter of six kittens. She was really friendly with her foster family- the kind of cat that's curious about what we're doing, following you around and seeking pets. She lets you know when she's all done with attention.
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.
Cecilia is a beautiful gray tabby, about 2 years old, who's initially shy but warms up to pets and cheek scritches. She's down on her knees, begging you please to come home.
Maureen is initially shy but warms up quickly. She is very sweet- will you be the one to bring her out of her shell?
