I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
My name is Kira and I am a hound dog! I am around 3 years old but I feel like I am a puppy again! You see, I had a family, I had a home, but then my family broke up and I ended up in the Richardson Animal Shelter. Unlike most, I managed to stay there for a long time, 7 months to be exact. Now that I am free, I am learning to be a dog again! I am still a little timid, but I am learning that I have nothing to be afraid of! I am learning how to play, and that I like toys. I am also learning basic commands. I know that I like other dogs, and I am trying to be friends with cats, even if they don't want to be friends with me. Even though I am tall, I am very gentle, so I am good around kids. I love to ride in the car and smell the fresh air through the window. I will make a great running buddy but I can also be a couch potato when at home. If you want to be my forever family please go to http://www.animalalliesoftexas.org/adoption-application/ today and fill out an application for me, KIRA. Thanks!

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.
Animal Allies of Texas serves all cities and towns within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (North Texas area). We restrict adoptions to these areas so that we can do home visits to ensure the best placement for all our animals.
