Meet the fearless Mercury, our newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! Mercury is a white rabbit who is very friendly and is searching for adventure.

His friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say:

Mercury is a very curious and friendly rabbit. He’s seemingly unafraid of anything!

Every time you come to greet him, he’ll great you back (hoping you brought a tasty treat). He loves to spend time hopping around and stretching his legs, and loves company when he plays. After he’s done, he’ll happily flop down beside you.

He loves learning and is a huge fan of target training!

If he was an ice cream flavor, he’d be mint chocolate chip. He’s interacted with cats, and is interested in greeting them!

Meet the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week, Bingo! This sweet guy is looking to become someone’s snuggle buddy.

This is what his friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say:

If you’re looking for a sweet, snuggly, purr machine who would love nothing more than to sleep by your side… look no further than Bingo!

This handsome boy lives for giving and getting affection from his human. With so much love to give, he has little time or interest in playing with toys. He also doesn’t feel the need to meow often but will head butt your hand when he wants your attention.

His foster tells us he is very good with his litter box habits and spends the majority of his day sleeping.

He would love to get to know you better and, if all works out, to become your #1 snuggle buddy!

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Zara

Give a warm welcome to Zara, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! This sweet 3-year-old girl is patiently waiting to find her forever family.

Her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation had this to say about her:

Meet Zara, an intelligent girl who lives to please her people. Her name means “radiance” or “blossoming flower,” and it fits her perfectly. She is a beautiful flower ready to bloom under your care.

Zara loves connecting with people, soft toys, back scratches and belly rolls. She can fetch, but is still working on returning it close to you. She has mastered commands to come, sit, stay, paw, let’s go (start walking again), and drop it. She is an eager student, smart and highly treat-motivated.

Zara is very friendly to all adults she meets, both on and off leash, and bonds quickly to her new friends. She is best suited for a home that provides consistency and reinforces her training. Ideally her new family consists of adults and/or older children. She needs a slow introduction to resident dogs.

Zara is looking for a home where she can shine and be the best good dog she knows she can be. She has been patiently waiting for her forever home. Will you be her best friend?

Are you and Zara a match? Check out her complete profile to learn more!

The newest Adoptable Pet of the Week is Clarice!

This adorable kitten is a ball of fluff that loves to snuggle and is looking for her forever home.

Her friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say about her:

Clarice the kitten shares much of the same personality traits as her famous movie namesake — Clarice Starling.

She’s smart, curious, quiet and strong willed. But underneath she’s a big softy who loves to snuggle up and fall asleep in your lap cuddling.

Clarice arrived in foster care after having been rescued on her own from a parking lot. She quickly befriended the other kittens in her foster home, and she loves to chase and wrestle with them. She’s become great buddies with Hubbard, and they’d love to find a home together!

Clarice has also been around adult cats and dogs in her foster home and is very used to them.

Is Clarice the furry companion you’ve been looking for? Read her complete profile to learn more!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Oliver

Say hello to the newest Arlington Pet of the Week, Oliver! This 6-year-old is a gentleman cat won’t say no to a meal or snack.

Here’s what his owner had to say about Oliver:

Meet Oliver!

Oliver is a six-year-old domestic shorthair cat and a connoisseur of the finer things in life. He soaks up the day napping in a sunbeam or in one of his favorite spots in the Madison Manor neighborhood of Arlington.

He also enjoys taunting his two brother dogs, Sparky the Schnoodle and Napoleon the Chihuahua. One of his favorite activities is eating, and he frequently checks his food bowl for snacks.

Adopted from the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, Oliver is a cancer survivor who had one front leg amputated in June. Despite these changes, Oliver is still able to accomplish many of his hobbies with sass to spare.

Although he was a mischievous kitten who earned the nickname Ruckus for his destructive tendencies, he has grown into a true Gentleman Cat who enjoys having his white belly scratched and patted on the daily.

Meet Kira, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! Kira is a sweet girl searching for her forever home.

Her friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say about her:

Kira is the literal definition of ‘heart-meltingly cute’! Whenever someone comes to greet her, she starts to wag her long tail very fast. Once she is comfortable with you, she likes to lean into you.

Kira is a very sweet dog who is very perceptive and wants to please. She is super smart and responds to commands including sit, stay, up, down, paw (shake), wait and off. In the house, Kira is mostly a couch potato. She loves to curl up on a sofa, bed or a dog bed and chill with you. She is very self-sufficient and does well staying alone, including in a crate. She is also housebroken. She loves going for walks — she walks well on a leash and used to go hiking or running with her previous dog guardian.

Kira was rescued from Qatar and brought to the US as a puppy. She spent most of her life in a home where she was trained and well-loved and cared for. The last few months have been filled with many changes, so she has been a bit stressed. Kira’s sensitive personality means that she is looking for some specific things in her new home.

Kira seems to prefer feminine-presenting people and can be nervous around young children, men and some dogs. Kira is looking for a single person or a family who will be committed and patient with her as she takes time to settle into her new home. She has spent time with dogs who are older and mostly ignore her but may be overwhelmed by younger or more exuberant dogs. Our team would love to talk to you more about Kira and how she might fit into your family

Welcome the newest Arlington Pet of the Week duo, Tuco and Fig! These fluffy twins came from Pennsylvania, but now call Arlington home.

Tuco and Fig have a few things to say about their paw-fect life in Arlington.

Greetings from Tuco and Fig!

We came from humble beginnings from a farm in Pennsylvania. Thanks to our mom’s Tesla driving friend, we were whisked away to the city of Arlington, and are living a paw-fectly splendid life!

Life in the city was an easy transition for us twins because we have each other, and also the paw-somest parents. Our daily schedule consists of sunbathing on our balcony, wrestling with each other, and reposing wherever we want.

Also, people love coming up to us to pet us and take pictures of us. Once we got a free tote bag just for sitting on it. Why are humans ever stressed out??

Sometimes, we hang out with our best friends Tater Tot and Mister Waffles (who was a previous Pet of the Week). Dad hopes we get bigger than Tater Tot, because he says he is his “rival.” We don’t understand what that means, but we love our playdates together!

And mom made us an Instagram account @tucoandfig because she has no hobbies. Hopefully she takes a break from all the pictures of us, so we can take a nap before dinner.

Mandy is the sweetest, friendliest little girl to anyone and immediately comes over for attention!

She is so tiny and cute. She loves pets and chin scratches. She will sit as close as possible to you, and taps you with her paw when she wants more attention.

Give a warm welcome to Cannoli, a rescue from Fort Worth who now calls Crystal City home, and our Arlington Pet of the Week!

This sweet boy from Texas loves everyone and his owner had the following to say about him.

Cannoli is new to the Arlington area this year. He comes to us as a rescue from Fort Worth, Texas, and has been enjoying making Crystal City his home.

He shows his ability to be a good boy by happily chewing his many bones, snuggling up for naps, and learning lots of tricks. Sit, shake, shake with the other paw, down, roll over, stay, and come are already in his repertoire!

On the other hand, his “gremlin behavior” comes through in howling at fluffy neighbors, digging at carpet, and teasing his dog park pals so they’ll chase him.

Whether it’s a Good Day or Gremlin Day, Cannoli loves everyone and enjoys his newfound popularity!

The newest Adoptable Pet of the Week is Kimchi, a black and white Guinea Pig.

Kimchi’s friends at  Animal Welfare League of Arlington had a few things to say about him:

Kimchi’s favorite things are: eating hay, snacking on treats like strawberries, sweet peppers, and carrots; snuggling in his cozy castle, and exploring his humans’ house.

Kimchi’s special talent is letting his humans know when he’s ready for a treat.

Kimchi’s perfect day would be hanging in a cozy, safe spot and having all the treats his little heart desires.

If Kimchi was an ice cream flavor, he would be: cookies and cream — not a showboat, but an enduring classic for a reason!

Important facts about Kimchi: Kimchi is a smaller piggie — not too much larger than a stick of butter! With his black and white coloring, makes him reminiscent of a newbie panda bear cub.

Is Kimchi the partner you’ve been looking for? Read his complete profile to learn more and how to arrange a virtual meet and greet.

Meet the adorable Sassy Sue, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week.

This lovely girl loves exploring and is searching for someone who will love her for who she is.

Sue’s friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say about her:

Sassy Sue’s favorite things are: Being outdoors with a stuffed kong and chew toys. She loves to explore. She can be a perfect running mate in the neighborhood.

Her special talents are: Sassy Sue knows “sit” and is working on “hand shake”. She is a good listener. Ask her to sit while waiting to put the food bowl down, she’ll wait until you say it’s okay.

Her perfect day would be: Running free in the backyard followed by a few chew toys or stuffed kong. A walk/run in the park, a few quick naps, dinner time, play time, then it is time for snuggling.

If Sassy Sue was an ice cream flavor, she would be: Rainbow Sherbet — sweet, bright and happy go lucky.

Important facts about Sassy Sue: She is house-broken, friendly with people, and gets along well with other dogs (sometimes she is too excited and we are still training her to be more calm). She is very food-motivated and can be easily trained.

*Sassy Sue has not met children/cats while in our care. AWLA team is happy to discuss these topics during your call/virtual appointment.*

Are you and Sassy Sue a perfect match? Read Sue’s complete profile to learn more.
