Heather writes, Our family decided it was time to add a new family member to our brood of an elderly dog, (14 years) and cat, (9 years) to energize us! We went to a shelter because we believe in adopting our pets and helping a homeless pet. When we walked by the puppies we saw our baby girl and instantly fell in love. She has come into our home and fit right in! In two weeks, we can't imagine life without, Salsa! She is a feisty puppy, but loves to snuggle too. Many thanks to all the great volunteers and staff at CAP for doing what they do to help these animals and families like mine gain such wonderful fur babies.
Lingyang Xue wrote, When me and my boyfriend want to adopt, we always adopt animals that are compatible with us. We never go straight for kittens or puppies. Tony was a very scared cat when we first met him and my boy friend was hesitant to adopt him at first because he would be so frightened towards anyone near his cage. I decided to chance it and had some one on one time. It was a very pleasant surprise that he constantly purred and never used his claws. A truly laid back easy going cat. He took a while to adjust to our house. But now he's a confident cat that is in love with my girl puppy. My other cat and two dogs taught him to beg two weeks after he settled in. Now hes a confident kitty that loves to take bubble baths with my girl pup.
Ron writes, have been looking for a new cool black cat are losing my other one several years ago. When I saw Mojo I knew he was the one for our home. He is a very handsome, playful fellow and doesn't have one shy bone in his entire body. We are very glad he is here and has joined our family.
Chloe was called Lovey
Meagan writes, saw Chloe at the Pet's Mart Adoption center in Sugar Land. She was so shy and scared. I was told that Sheltie Rescue rescued her from a backyard breeder and took her to shelter. I was planning to come back the next day after having the night to think it over. I got a call saying she was sick with Bordatella (kennel cough), but if you foster/adopt then I would be able to get her. We formed an immediate bond, and still to this day she has separation anxiety when we are apart. It turns out she had distemper instead of bordatella. She wouldn't eat, drink, play, etc. She was very sick, but with the help of an amazing vet, Dr. Driever, I was able to get her healthy again. Now she is a happy, crazy, and sweet dog. She now has a little kitty friend named Nala as well.
Amanda writes, After looking for several weeks at various local shelters, we came across Liberty, formally Danish, online at 10:30am Sunday. Right away we knew she was the one. We anxiously waited until 1pm when CAP opened Sunday and called to see if she was still there. She was and so went. Now Liberty has been home for five weeks and they have been the best five weeks of our lives. She is a happy, healthy girl and goes on many outings! She enjoys baseball games and puppy play dates. We look forward to many years with her. She is perfect in every way.
Meigian writes, The first time I saw Shaggy is through a glass window. He was in the puppy room. I am so glad I picked him. He is like the sweetest thing ever! He was afraid of anything at first. But now he is definitely getting braver! I try to get him more socialized, so I took him to the dog park. Everybody there just loved him! Who wouldn't? He is soooo adorable. I hope he can be with me for a really long time.
Alan writes, She is doing well and has become one of the family. She and our male Chaweenie are best friends.
Kelly writes, Maggie was just 8 weeks old when we adopted her. When I saw her I just new I had to take her home. She is the sweetest most playful puppy ever. She also loves to snuggle. She has such a cute personality. I am so glad I made the decision to go on the day I did. I found a new best friend for my family. She brightens everyday for us.
Ashley writes, We fell in love with Sugar at the shelter and from the moment we brought her home, she has fit into our family like she was always meant to be a part of it! She loves to cuddle, chew on her rawhides, play fetch, and her favorite pastime is bird and squirrel watching from what has become her chair in front of the kitchen window. Her scabs on her lower back have healed and her hair is growing back beautifully. While she doesn't care for her baths, she does love having her hair brushed.
Shelby and Kevin wrote, When we adopted Durango in January, he was a shy, 17 pound little puppy with one floppy ear. Rango will celebrate his first birthday in a few days and he has reached nearly 70 pounds! He still has one floppy ear that we now call his combover but it fits his silly personality perfectly. He is a very happy, energetic dog that loves playing fetch, pestering his cat sisters, digging in our backyard and chasing his tail. Rango has been a great addition to our family. He is such a sweet and loving dog and we can't imagine life without him.
