"Why do you build me up (Build me up)
Buttercup baby
just to let me down (Let me down)"

Hi, My name is Buttercup! My foster mom loves the song above and sings it to me all the time. Yes I am strikingly beautiful, and I don't think it's vain to say so. My dog mom was a border collie/terrier mix and my dad was a blue heeler. My foster Mom says I'm as sweet as they come, I'm doing really well with my house and crate training. I'm very playful and love playing with the other pups in the house. I also like cats, the ones I've met at least.

I need a special family who is willing to be very patient with me and who wouldn't mind learning some sign language because I am deaf. I don't let it get me down, but I do stick to my humans and am learning to watch them for commands, plus the other pups in the house help me out. I would love to be part of your family.

About Animal Allies of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org for specific locations and times.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org or a paper application at an adoption event. General requirements for adoption: You must live in the DFW/Ft. Worth/North Texas area - we do not adopt outside this area. Dogs must be primarily inside, and cats must be totally inside. Cats must not be declawed. All pets must be spayed/neutered if this has not been done prior to adoption. Adopter must agree to a home visit prior to adoption. Adopter MUST agree to return pet to AAT if he/she can no longer keep the pet or if AAT deems it to be in the best interest of the pet. An adoption agreement detailing these and other requirements must be signed to finalize adoption. Current fees are: puppies (under 6 months)-$200, dogs-$175; kittens (under 6 months)-$125, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
