Facts about Emily

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hi, my name is Emily! I was born around March 18, 2013 under the Sign of the Tuna Can. I had a tough beginning. On Good Friday (or during Passover, if you prefer) my orphan siblings and I were found under an apartment building nesting in insulation. Owwy. I was only two weeks old. When they pulled me out, my little head was stuck in a clump of fiberglass. My left eye was injured. Even though they were afraid I was going to be blind in that eye, I’m not. Yay! My eye waters a little as a result of fiberglass, but other than that, I’m fine.

As you can see, I’m a striking short haired tortoiseshell girl. Don’t you just love the exclamation mark down the center of my face? That just confirms what an enthusiastic little kitty I am.

If you look up the words “sweet” and “affectionate” in the dictionary, you’ll find “Emily". I love attention and want to be around you all the time. Pet me, brush long as I get affection from you I don’t care. I get along with everyone: other cats, friendly dogs, kids. I don’t have a shy bone in my body. I’m the official greeter at my foster home. I have to check out every friend and salesperson who rings the doorbell. My foster dad says I’m a bona fide lap warmer, and I have to help my foster mom with her writing. I climb up on her chest and get between her and the computer screen. She complains that she can’t get any work done, but I think the stress relief is so much more important.

I’m spayed, current on my shots, negative for awful diseases and have a microchip. My adoption fee is only $110. If you are interested in a sweet and friendly kitty like me please fill out an application at today for EMILY!

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: puppies (under 6 months)-$200, dogs-$175; kittens (under 6 months)-$125, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
