I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Hi, I'm a 48 lb Red Heeler Mix and my name is Willow. I am also one lucky girl to have found my way to AAT! You see, a nice lady picked me up off the highway where I was lying injured and took me to her vet. When she realized how much care I was going to need, she asked my foster mom if I could join Animal Allies. I went to the vet right away and had my injured hip fixed, and a plate put into my broken leg. I was super sweet in spite of being in pain, and once the pain was all gone, my foster mom says she can't believe how nice I am!!
I get along with my foster dog friends but I am anxious to find my forever home. I am house trained and know how to use the doggy door. I've been spayed, microchipped and all of my vaccinations are up to date. I have a new chance at life but I still need someone who will love me and keep me safe...and who can deal with the possibility that I may get a little arthritic later on in life (foster mom says this just means daily pain meds and isn't a big deal!). I just know that I am a sweetheart of a dog (just repeating what they tell me!!) AND will make a wonderful friend for some lucky people. If you think we might be a match, please visit the AAT website and fill out an application for ME, Willow, today!!
A note from AAT: Willow will have heartworm treatment soon. She will be ready for adoption sometime in the Spring or early Summer of 2011. In the meantime, please help us help Willow by going to http://www.animalalliesoftexas.org/donations/ and making a PayPal donation to assist in paying her medical costs.... which as you can imagine are very high. Willow says thank you and so do we!

Rescue Group Info...
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."
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.
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: dogs-$175, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
