My name is Rocky and my foster mom saved me during the 11th hour! I am now completely healthy and back to being my fun-loving self. My foster mom thinks that I must have had a family at one point because of my familiarity with the crate and how easy I go into it. Plus, I already knew some basic commands; but truth be told, I'm just a very smart dog!

I love all dogs, but I'm not sure how I will be with a cat. They sure do resemble squirrels and I love to chase squirrels! I also like all ages of humans. One night while Mom and I were out, a little girl tugged on my ears and rolled across my back for hours - it was sooooo much fun. My favorite thing however, has got to be when I am being chased at the off-the-leash dog park. I love running and I'm really fast. It's even more enjoyable when I have a playmate. I really really hope to find a forever home with room to run and a brother or sister to play with every day. After a day of running and playing, I start winding down around 9 pm, and that's when I like to get comfy and close to my human. I really like cuddling any time of day, but its best at night when I can lay on the couch with Mom. Would you like to be my forever cuddle buddy? Then please fill out an application for me, ROCKY!

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 for specific locations and times.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site 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: Dog - $175, Puppy (under 7 months) - $200; Cat - $110, Kitten (under 7 months) - $125. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchipping.
