August 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet MINA!

August 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet MINA!

She’s a diminutive kitty, wears a tuxedo and has fur as soft as silk. She’s frequently found on the highest perch of the cat tower and has a fondness for being scratched under her chin. Meet Mina!   This month’s featured cat was found in a feral cat colony by Dallas Animal Services and found a home with a DPA! foster family where she has proven to be a little charmer. She’s a bit on the shy side, but warms up quickly and will even sit on your lap or sleep on your chest occasionally. This little cat is a wonderful feline companion who likes to be in the same room with you, even if she doesn’t sit next to you all the time.  We think Mina would do best in a quieter home with other cats. (Dogs will be tolerated if they don’t like to chase cats.) Mina needs a patient and gentle home that will understand she doesn’t like to be held all the time, but still has plenty of love to give.  Could you be the right fit for this special little cat? Mina is 50% off through August. Apply to adopt Mina here or...
August 2019 Dog of the Month: Lolli-Pop!

August 2019 Dog of the Month: Lolli-Pop!

This month’s featured dog would be happy to ride in your car or take a short walk with you.  She’s a well-behaved girl who is described as being affectionate and good-mannered and she’s also as sweet as her name. Meet Lolli-Pop!   Lolli is a female Pit Bull Terrrier/Mixed Breed with a tan coat and a winsome smile who is mature in nature, smart and mellow with people.  She has a low-to-moderate activity level and bonds well with people. She would be a faithful companion to a fortunate family. We think this special pup would do well in a home with a good-sized, fenced-in yard so she could explore and get some outdoor exercise. She is also housebroken and crate-trained. Is Lolli be the right companion for you? Lolli-Pop is 50% off through August. Apply to adopt Lolli here or...
July 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet HARISSA!

July 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet HARISSA!

Like the North African hot sauce that she’s named for, this month’s featured feline has true zest and adds spice to life! Meet Harissa! A Silver Tabby mix with a white bib and paws, this 13-year-old girl is proving that life only gets better with age and is looking to share her enthusiasm in a forever home. Harissa was in a shelter when DPA! found her. Her foster describes Harissa as being vocal, friendly, sassy, healthy and full of energy. This spunky kitty is independent, but also loves to rub against your feet, follow you around the house, sleep and cuddle with you. She would rather play with her toys than take a nap and is so smart that she has figured out how to open her cat carrier.   Harissa is declawed, is good about using her sandbox and is great with other cats. We think she would make an excellent companion for someone who is willing to appreciate a senior cat and needs some spice in their life. Could you be the right fit for this month’s cat?  Harissa is 50% off through July. Apply to adopt Harissa  here or...
July 2019 Dog of the Month: Queen Elizabark!

July 2019 Dog of the Month: Queen Elizabark!

A walk or a belly rub will bring a winsome smile to her face. She’s photogenic. She loves to sleep on her back and has a favorite chair. Meet Queen Elizabark!   Queen Elizabark (‘Queenie” to her friends) is a five-year-old Pit Bull/Terrier mix with brown fur, caramel-colored eyes and cute pair of floppy ears. She’s one lucky pup, too. DPA quickly came to her rescue when she was in the euthanasia room at the shelter. Her kennel had already been given to another dog, but because Queenie is such a sweet girl, the manager allowed her to stay in an office until DPA could get there and take her into their care. That DPA tag was looking awfully good that day! We all think she’s here for a reason. This muscular sweetie loves to be with people, does an excited rhumba-like dance when she thinks it’s time for a walk and favors a certain arm chair so much that she will sit on top of anyone who is sitting in it. She is healthy, was treated for heartworms in March 2019, and is doing great.  Are you looking to take a walk with a friend? Could you be the person that Queenie shares her chair with? Queen Elizabark is 50% off through July. Apply to adopt Queen here or...
June 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet Elvis!

June 2019 Cat of the Month: Meet Elvis!

It’s not his size that sets him apart as much as it is the size of the love in him. This month’s entertaining cat is petite, but has a lot of charm. He is a 9-pound Domestic Shorthair/Silver Tabby with light green eyes and has a love for cat toys. Meet Elvis!   This rock-and-roller came to Dallas Pets Alive! as a stray, but it’s clear to everyone that he wasn’t meant to live his life without the affection of people and other animals. We think he could be a smash hit in a permanent home of his own, bringing his own special style to a forever family. Elvis loves to be with people and wants to be included in all your activities. He is curious, polite, has a quiet side and has even won over people who say they don’t like cats! He would love to share the stage with other cool cats — and even dogs. He is vocal at meal time and is a bit of a door-dasher so his owner would need to watch him carefully.   Are you looking for a special friend that will keep you entertained and bring you love? We think Elvis will love you tender. Elvis is 50% off through June. Apply to adopt Elvis here or...
June 2019 Dog of the Month: Meet Gracie!

June 2019 Dog of the Month: Meet Gracie!

Who is that masked hero? I want to offer her a Grande Starbucks Mocha with extra whip! This month’s featured dog may not be a superhero who flies with a cape or scales the sides of buildings, but she’s an everyday hero who provides loyal and loving companionship. She is a 38-pound black-and-white Boxer/Terrier mix with a noble disposition. Meet Gracie! This girl is lively, curious and loves to explore her world. She is also a big cuddler, so be prepared to spend some quality time on the sofa with her. She is potty-trained, house-trained and loves to seek out adventure. The fact that she looks stylish in her paw print bandana is just an added bonus.   We would love to see Gracie in a home with a yard so she could run and play. Are you looking for some love and devotion? Are you willing to share your Starbucks with this loving pup? Gracie is 50% off through June. Apply to adopt Gracie here or...
