Looking for a new furry friend to bring home this holiday season? Look no further — we’ve rounded up six cats and dogs who are eager to share the love with you.
Most of these fluffy friends have had their adoption fees waived, and many of them have been professionally trained.
Back In Black | 2 years, 3 months
This former street cat was found with a clipped ear and fractured leg, but she’s got a loving spirit that just won’t break. Black — a domestic shorthair — loves other cats and has an affinity for belly rubs.
Josephine | 2 years
A former stray and current Desperate Housecat, Josephine is very affectionate when she gets to know you. She may have her boundaries, but this cute kitty warms up quickly.
Soot Sprite | 4 months
Despite arriving at Austin Pets Alive! with injuries and ringworm, little Soot Sprite is making a comeback. Her fosters say she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.
Firecracker | 1 year
In a word, Firecracker’s personality is explosive. This energetic pup — who is a terrier pit mix — loves a big yard for zoomies, is treat-motivated, and loves being around humans and animals alike.
Frodo | 8 years, 10 months
This loving terrier-pit mix is one of APA!'s top dog trainees, so he comes to you with tricks galore. Whether you’re throwing a ball around or doing a crossword puzzle, Frodo will happily do it with you.
Oprah | 7 years, 8 months
Available to foster or adopt, pointer mix Oprah is house-trained and crate-trained, and loves going for walks and cuddles. This girl is known for her silly facial expressions, so a sense of humor is welcome.
