He does act a bit shy around new people but once you start petting him, he comes around pretty quickly.  Ron is not a fan of dogs so he would require a slow introduction if his adoptive family has a dog in the house.

Austin Pets Alive

bamaBama 12

1 year, Male, Domestic Shorthair

Bama is a gregarious and trusting cat in spite of having a rough start in life. He absolutely adores people, and prefers to spend all of his time in their company. He also really loves dogs, and almost treats them as though they’re people. He’s totally unfazed by dogs running around or getting up close and personal to them. We also think that he would really love kids. He’s so friendly that he loves and accepts everyone.

nalaNala

9 years, Female, Ragdoll mix

Nala is a gorgeous girl who would love nothing more than to be brushed and petted all day. She is a ragdoll mix with a goddess-like, long white coat and unique facial markings. She always likes to look her best and has excellent grooming and litter manners. Nala tolerates other cats and kittens but is definitely a solo act who would prefer a single cat home. She enjoys a luxurious lifestyle and will spend all day basking in the sun.

carleyCarley

9 years, female, Lhasa Apso mix

Through no fault of her own, Carley was given up by the only family she’s ever known due to a condition with her eyes that has left her almost blind. Frankly, what Carley wants most is to be with a calm family that will give her the space to feel safe and loved on her terms.

winnifredWinnifred

3 years, female, Australian Shepherd mix

This sweet girl was surrendered by a family who said she’s very affectionate and a great soccer player, but was overly protective and too prone to barking at strangers approaching the house. In a previous foster home, Winnie proved to be a well-behaved girl who seems house trained and obeys such commands as sit, shake and lay. She’s working on her leash training and still pulls some.

Cchocohoko Bell

2 years, male, Australian Cattle Dog mix

Whether you want to enjoy Austin’s outdoorsy atmosphere, or kick your feet back and relax, Choko is ready and willing to be your pal along for the journey. His excitement when there is a frisbee in your hand goes to show his enthusiasm for the outdoors and his playfulness!

Central Texas SPCA

phoebePhoebe

2 years, female

Hi, my name is Phoebe and I’ve been told that I’m a sweetheart. I’ve got the energy of a lab but I’m a bit smaller. So basically I’ve got all the brains and beauty but in a smaller package! I love to be outside and lay in the sun with people, but I’m curious and excited by the idea of soft beds! I’m intimidated by other dogs, so I’d like to be the only dog in your life.

cookie bench 2Cookie

junior3Junior

3 months, male

I am an outgoing, lovable little guy.  One of my favorite activities is batting at feather toys and chasing fake mice around. I love to play with visitors, have my belly rubbed, kick a few catnip toys around, and then stretch out for a good, long nap.

mufasa featureMufasa

7 years, male

Mufasa enjoys long walks in the sun and cuddling with anyone and everyone. He’s pretty chilled out most of the time, and gets along well with his friend Cookie. He’d be a good family dog, as he’s friendly with most everyone.

Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary

SpeckSpeck_20150706a

3 years, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Margo_20150717_aMargo

1 year, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Margo is a young mother (in 2015).  She is a good mom, very patient and serene. She is engaging but undemanding.  Is restless and tired of being cooped up with 4 rowdy kittens. Her foster caretaker believes she could be a lovely gentle companion once she does not have kittens to deal with.

Zuzu_20150717_105756aZuzu

4 months, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Zuzu is a dainty tuxedo, quick and nimble.  As of August 2015, she and her sister Snowe are at about the same level of human engagement.  They are still a little cautious but both enjoy touching and playing. They aren’t ready to be lap cats yet.  Her other sisters are Ava and Uma.

Snowe_20150717_105941aSnowe

4 months, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Snowe is exceptionally bright and quite talkative. She has a distinctive little swagger that will make you smile.  She wants you to pet her … but she’s not quite sure … so she will circle around and come within reach sideways and backwards. She does not like to be picked up but enjoys rubs and scratches and belly play.

Ava_20150717_105851aAva

4 months, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Ava is friendly and might make a good lap cat.  Daughter of Margo, she is the boldest of her litter: the first to engage people, first to explore beyond the room. Quick to come and play. She has lots of potential.

Pets of the Week: August 17, 2015

Austin Animal Center

Cookie & Blue soloCookie and Blue (IDs A697187 & A697188)

6 year old Terrier mixes, Spayed female & Neutered Male

 

They have been at Austin Animal Center far too long! It was 6 long months ago that their owner surrendered them due to moving and breed restrictions. Despite being slightly confused about life at the shelter, these two are the sweetest, most loving dogs you will ever meet. They love to go for walks together, sleep together and ride in the car together!  They are gentle with children and other dogs and always love to meet new people.  Shelter life has started taking a toll on these pups because they truly miss being around people. House-trained and well-mannered inside, they have become staff favorites and love to lay under the desks of staffers as they works.

KatieKatie (ID A706297)

8 year old Labrador Retriever mix, Spayed Female

Katie is affectionate and playful, but at eight years old, she is also mature and well behaved. Katie’s foster family reports that she is house trained, not destructive when left alone inside (with doggy door access to the yard for potty breaks), and gets along well with the other dogs in the home. Katie has shown interest in chasing neighborhood cats while out walking with her foster parents, so she would probably do best in a home without cats or other small animals. 

StewartStewart (ID A709066)

1 year old Tabby, Neutered Male

Stewart is super affectionate and easy to be around. Stewart was actually breaking into homes trying to find a home! Finally some of the neighbors decided to bring him to the shelter, in hopes that he could find a forever home that will allow him to live indoors!

Annie-1Annie (ID A697537)

3 year old Pit Bull mix, Spayed Female

Enough though Annie came to us is very bad shape back in February, we have learned that she’s a sweet, playful, goofy girl who has a great personality! Fetch, swimming, and going for walks are some of her favorite things to do! Annie knows sit and seems house-trained!! We are sure that she is going to bring  much joy to someone’s life.

Austin Pets Alive

PeachesPeaches

Bull Terrier/Australian Kelpie, female, 6 years, 7 months

Who doesn’t love a peach? Peaches is a fun, smart dog who is just the right size and temperament for a family with older children. She is quite affectionate once she becomes comfortable with new people, which usually doesn’t take too long. She loves to run and play fetch, and with her intelligence and focus we even think she would make a good candidate for agility work. Peaches needs to be your only pet in the home because she wants you all to herself.

HouseHouse

Pointer mix, male, 5 years, 9 months

House arrived at APA quite nervous and confused. But now that he has gotten more used to his surroundings, he has shown us a sweet temperament that makes him a pleasure to be around. House loves to stay close to people so that he can get some attention and affection. However, he is not a jumpy, needy dog. When he was first introduced to other dogs here at the shelter, House didn’t seem to know what to make of them. But he has started to loosen up, and now seems much more relaxed around other dogs.

RenoReno

Pit Bull Terrier, male, 2 years, 10 months

Reno wears his heart on his sleeve. And it’s a huge heart. Even though his greetings are lively, Reno is a very mellow boy who mostly prefers to hang out with his people. Reno needs a person, or family, who will commit to spending time with him and patiently train him to be the best boy he can be. Reno has a gentle temperament around kids and has done well with most of the dogs he’s met. He does need a cat-free home, though.

 

Hop a LongHop a Long

Domestic Shorthair, female, 11 years, 6 months

Hop a Long has a chronic eye issue which causes her to squint a bit and look perpetually grumpy, but once you meet her you’ll realize that she’s actually a very sweet and affectionate cat! She loves being pet and stroked and gently loved on by humans. She doesn’t mind living with other cats as long as they stay out of her business and just let her be the cool, mellow, independent kitty that she is. At this senior stage of her life, Hop a Long would rather not be living with dogs or kids who could stress her out.

AmosAmos

Hi, my name’s Amos! I’m a happy, carefree, sweeter-than-a-cookie pup. My life wasn’t so great before coming here but you wouldn’t know it when you meet me! I love my toys and the yummy treats people give me. I have dog friends here too and we have so much fun! I’m a bit of a wall-flower, I’m still getting used to living in People World. Will you be the one to help me gain confidence and be the best pup I can be?

Hi, there! My name is Angelo Blue but my friends just call me Blue. I am a very independent kitty. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and am also pretty laid back.

I live with several dogs and like them a lot, too.

CASSIDY---CLOSE-UP---CHP-ml_0[1]Cassidy

I love attention and I look adoringly at my foster dad with my big brown eyes! My family says that there is a lot of expression in my eyes. At first, I may seem a little shy, but if you will show me love, I’ll warm up to you.

Fetch, swimming, and going for walks are some of her favorite things to do! Annie knows sit and seems house-trained!! Come meet this special girl at Town Lake Animal Center and give her the home she truly deserves.

CaitlynCaitlyn (ID A699227)

4 month old Cream tabby, Spayed Female, In Foster

Caitlyn is loveable with a laid back personality.  She loves to play, but is just as happy hanging out in your lap, snuggling with you  or another sibling! She is looking for an indoor-only home where she will never be declawed!

Blue1Blue (ID A649782)

8 year old Pit Bull mix, Neutered Male, In Foster

Blue is a sweet, goofy, laid back boy who knows basic commands and is house-trained, loves playing fetch with his jolly ball, taking walks, hanging by your side at dog friendly restaurants and bars, car rides and relaxing with his human. He has lived with cats and other dogs. Rowdy and loud dogs are not his favorite type, mellow, like him is best!

SandySandy (ID A676266)

8 year old German Shepherd mix, Spayed Female, In Foster

477 days! Sandy was in very poor shape when she was 1st brought to Austin Animal Center, as a stray back in April of 2014. Now with TLC and a loving foster home, she is the best shape ever. We do know that she is blind in one eye and pretty hard of hearing over all! Yet, she is very gentle and easy going, knows sit and enjoys just hanging around with her foster.

SavannahSavannah (ID A708601)

Savannah is searching for her dream home! Her previous owner could no longer care for her and now she waits here at the shelter for a new beginning. Calm, quiet and loving she has perfect manners.

Austin Pets Alive!

vickieVickie

American Pit Bull Terrier, female, 3 years, 10 months

This sweet girl looks for affection from any of her people, those she lives with and brand new acquaintances, nudging with her nose and then leaning into them for petting and rubdowns. Vickie walks beautifully on her leash for long walks, and she especially loves playing fetch with ropes and tennis balls until exhaustion sets in. She has not been comfortable in the company of other dogs or kids and hasn’t been observed with cats, so she’ll probably do best as the only pet in a home with adults.

manchasManchas

Plott Hound, male, 7 years, 2 months

This smart and curious boy loves to meet new people. His signature move when making new acquaintances is a polite sit and a gentlemanly paw shake, followed by flopping onto his back for a belly rub. This brindle beauty is a quick learner and very disciplined. Part of the reason he’s so easy to train is his love of treats; he’s as eager for food as he is to please, making him a fun dog to work with. He gets along with many other dogs, but a meet and greet will be the best way to find out how he does with any potential canine siblings. We are not sure how he is around cats or children.

laceyLacey

Black Mouth Cur, female, 2 years, 9 months

Lacey is a sweet and sensitive dog who would love nothing more than a new home. She is not too crazy about the loud environment here at the shelter, and we can’t blame her. Add in the fact that she recently had a litter of pups, and this is one confused mama who is looking to change her fortunes! Even though she is very cautious and stoic around the shelter, we can tell that she is a curious dog who is interested in her surroundings. It does take her a bit of time to feel comfortable around new people, and she will need a calm, stable environment to help her relax and build confidence.

dumaDuma

Domestic Shorthair, male, 7 years, 11 months

Duma loves people, although he may not be so crazy about cats. His previous owner had to let him go because he wasn’t getting along with the other cat of the house. He’s currently in a foster home, where he spends most of his time curled up next to any available human. This guy isn’t too interested in cat toys, but he does love the tunnels and crawling into tiny spaces. He is declawed so he never even attempts to scratch furniture.  Duma doesn’t need a lot of space, but he seems to prefer being an only kitty. He needs someone who understands and appreciates his small quirks and he will repay them tenfold in loyalty and love.

chloeChloe

Domestic Shorthair, female, 6 years, 10 months

Chloe is a mellow and affectionate kitty with soft black fur. She is looking for a home where she could bond with one particular person and enjoy a kicked-back life of companionship. She is a super chill cat who would thrive in a quiet environment with a person who shares her relaxed temperament. Being a mellow sort of kitty, Chloe is startled by loud noises and quick movements. She just wants to curl up in your lap when you’re reading and purr herself to sleep while you pet or brush her.

Hound Mix, female, 7 months

Hi, I’m Smiley! I’m a quiet, polite lady with a beautiful smile! I’m a little shy, but I am gaining confidence everyday! I love other dogs, adjusting to a new home might be a little easier with siblings to teach me. Either way, I’m very sweet and gentle with people. I just need a little patience and an open heart!

bradley2Bradley

3 years, Male, Domestic Shorthair

Hello, there. I’m Bradley. The good folks at Thundering Paws rescued me from a bad situation. I’m a healthy boy with a nice, shiny coat and really like my wet food in the morning. My human friends who care for me during the day say I’m a sweet cat who can be timid at first but then I warm up and get affectionate and playful. One also says I enjoy her singing! I’m glad to jump up into their laps and get petted around my neck and ears. Purrrrr! I also like to play with feathers and get along fine with other kitties although we don’t know how I do with dogs.

Piper1Piper

1 year, Female, Mix

Hi, my name is Piper and I am looking for my forever home. I was abandoned as a younger puppy and had a hard time because no one wanted me. But I’m happy now that I have a foster home and I am excited about finding a home where I’ll belong for good! I am a very spirited pooch and I love to run and play! I am great on a leash and we can have fun walks and jogs together. I have met some other dogs and children and I think I would love to play with them.

Austin Pets Alive!

dawnDawn

Pit bull terrier, female, 5 years, 9 months

Dawn has a zest for life that is absolutely contagious. She is full of energy and loves a long walk. Her leash manners are pretty darn good, and she’s proving to be a fun student when it comes to learning commands. While she is happy to work for treats, her one true love is playing. Give her a squeaky toy or toss a tennis ball and Dawn will keep you entertained. Dawn needs to be the only pet in your home, but we think she’ll be plenty!

phantomPhantom

Boston Terrier/Staffordshire Bull Terrier, male, 10 years, 4 months

Don’t be scared of this Phantom! He is a mellow senior gentleman who is looking to take life easy. He has spent most of his life as an indoor family dog and knows his way around a home. He loves to go for a walk in the morning, and he’s had plenty of practice walking on a leash. He spends a good deal of time snoozing during the day, and also enjoys a second walk. Phantom would prefer to be the only dog in your home. He seems to love all people including children, and he has spent a lot of time around kids.

marieMarie

Boston Terrier, female, 6 years, 1 month

Marie just radiates happiness and fun. She’s full of life and just ready for any adventure that her person might take her on. This fun-loving girl was abandoned by a previous owner, who at least left a note with her name and information that she’s perfectly crate- and house-trained.  Marie has proved to be a lover of all toys. A half dozen or so toys are usually in the play pen at APA, and let off leash, she runs to every one of them trying to decide which to play with first. How Marie will relate to other dogs and cats isn’t yet known. She will do best in an adult-only home.

HarlanHarlan

Labrador Retriever Mix, male, 2 years

Hey there, I’m Harlan! I’m a big guy with an even bigger heart! I love to run and play with my toys. I’m pretty smart, I even know how to sit! I’m a little socially awkward with other dogs, so meeting any future siblings in advance would be best. Join the lab-lovers fan club and take me home!

Freckles’s favorite word is “Mine!”  But he will also take your heart as hops in your lap and invites you to love on him.  You will  be rewarded with lots of purrs and gentle play bites.  He is an awesome cat in the making.  Great tuxedo personality.

broccoliBroccoli

Pit Bull Terrier, female, 7 years, 1 month

If you’re looking for a calm, affectionate friend, look no further than Ms. Broccoli. This girl would love to relax on a soft spot in your home, or maybe spend some time in the evening lounging on the cool grass while you tend to your yard. She is quite timid around new people, but will still happily accept a nice scratch under the chin. Lots of action rattles her nerves a bit, too, so she’d prefer to stay away from busy farmer’s markets and the like. Broccoli previously lived with children and was wonderful with them, though she’d like to be the only dog in your home.

mercuryMercury

Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier, male, 2 years

Mercury is a playful, energetic adolescent who would be great for a family who likes to get their exercise. He will make a great hiking or running partner. But his favorite activity is chasing tennis balls. Mercury loves nothing better than a nice game of fetch. So far Mercury seems to behave inconsistently around other dogs. We’re working to give him some socialization. He might be able to share a home with a well-matched mate, but he wouldn’t mind being the only dog in the home either. His energy level might be too much for smaller children, but a home with active older kids who would love to engage with him would be great.

diabloDiablo

Labrador Retriever, male, 10 years, 11 months

Diablo is a sweet older dog that has maybe had a rough time in this past. Diablo is an easy-going soul at heart, who’s just trying not to rock the boat. He aims to please and listens to his foster family. He loves pets on the head but is a little uncomfortable with too much hugging and snuggling.  Diablo can be good with other dogs, but needs to be introduced carefully.  Slowly but surely, Diablo seems to be warming up to the idea of being a family dog. With some time, patience, and a steady routine, we think he can blossom into his full Lab-ness and be the loyal and loving companion he was meant to be.

maddieMaddie

Domestic Shorthair, female, 1 years, 1 month

They say that cats are curious creatures, and Maddie is one feline who lives up to the stereotype! An inquisitive kitty, she can often be found perched on a windowsill observing the outside world or waiting to greet visitors at the door. Once you’ve walked through that door, it won’t take long for Maddie to win you over like she’s charmed our staff and volunteers! She can be a bit reserved with strangers, but warms up quickly and lets her affectionate nature show. Before you know it, her little white paws will jump into your lap and she’ll curl up to be cuddled.

Introducing Ceasar! Ceaser is the funnest guy around, who loves all! Cats and humans beware, for Ceasar become your new BFF! Ceasar loves some good play time and would love a forever buddy to pal around with.

FriscoFrisco

Terrier/Mix, male, 1 year

Hi, I’m Frisco! I’m a reserved guy looking for a patient, loving home. I’m still learning how to be comfortable around people, but I’m getting better everyday! I bet we could bond over a Netflix marathon and some yummy treats! Will you show me how to love?

Little DoeLittle Doe

Chihuahua, Short Coat/Purebred, female, 6 years

Meet Little Doe! You won’t be able to resist this sweet girl! Little Doe has been with us for the past year. She was part of the backyard breeding rescue we took part in. All the dogs from that rescue have found their home but Little Doe still waits for hers. She is very friendly but is still getting use to humans. She eagerly will go up to you for a sniff and maybe even a quick kiss to the hand but is still a little shy. She loves to be held, though, and finds peace and comfort from the one who is holding her. She would do great in a quiet environment that will give her time to adjust to her new surroundings.

Kal-p4pKal

Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix, male, 2 years

Hi! My name is Kal and I am a sweet, lovable boy who just wants to climb in your lap and hang out. Need a running partner? Let’s go! Need a cuddle buddy? I’m your boy! Come check me out and I’ll be best your new best friend! I get along with all people I have met here, including respectful older children. I would prefer to be the only dog in your heart.

Tootsie1Tootsie

1 year, Female, Domestic Shorthair

Hi, I’m Tootsie. I’m a sweet, gentle girl who is a little shy with people. I’m still learning to trust but once I’m on your lap I will purr for you and enjoy being petted. I love snoozing in a hammock and watching through the window as birds come to the feeder. Like most kittens I love to play, and I have a good time romping around with my sister. I’ll do best in a fairly quiet home, and I wouldn’t mind having another kitty to play with. If you’re looking for a pair of kittens, please consider me and one of my siblings.

Stretch 2-14-15Stretch

1 year, Male, Domestic Shorthair

Because my sisters, brothers and I were homeless — without regular meals and human love, I admit I’m a little shy at first. But now I’ve learned how to purr like a little engine and stretch my arms out towards you when you walk in the room. I like other cats when they play with me and I’m learning about the dog that lives at my foster home. I’d do well in a home with adults or with a family with older kids. At first, I like to explore my surroundings room by room so I feel safe. Once that happens, I relax and feel at home. Maybe that could be your home?
