My Story

from Annabelle's AAT foster mom:

"There SHE is again. Annabelle. In "the" chair. The chair that we bought at an L streets garage sale, benefiting animal rescue. The chair that I pondered over fabrics with, knowing it would be a special chair, in our living room. The chair that we lovingly delivered to the nice ol' guys at Custom Trends, to tear apart and put back together again. Whatever it needed - new coils, new ties, new foam, new wrap. Extra yards for a great pattern match through the buttons and some TLC on that beautifully sculpted walnut frame. Yep. The chair. Now, Annabelle's chair. "

Annabelle is a very special girl - she survived the harsh reality of being a thrown-away street dog on Greenville Avenue for over 2 years, by some accounts. She delivered a litter of 8 puppies June 2011 under the floorboards of our favorite Bonsai shop, Sunshine Miniature Trees - not her "first rodeo". All of her puppies, and her bonded male Daddy Jack and sweet Annabelle joined AAT because a concerned animal lover decided to get involved. Look at her. That spoiled, sleeping girl was starving this time last year. And covered in fleas. And trying to feed a starving litter of 8. Nevermore, sweet Annabelle.

Annabelle is crate trained (not necessary, in her opinion), leash trained, house trained, loves car rides and walks at the lake, and expects for all human children to be as well-behaved as she is - or else! Annabelle is just fine as a single dog in her Forever Home but if that oh-so-special Human really wants to show her the big dog love, they would make a bit of room for her Daddy Jack. Not because she needs him - but because Daddy Jack loves her - and she knows it. From Annabelle's foster Mom, "It's a symbiotic thing....most of us Humans really don't understand."

Annabelle is healthy and happy and ready for her new forever home. Please fill out an application for her at http://www.animalalliesoftexas.org/adoption-application/ today.

Love you, Annie...night-night!

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.

About the Rescue GroupLearn More

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."
