Lava is a beautiful shaded silver tabby with big gold-green eyes. She’s about 1Â½ years old and has a gentle, laid-back demeanor. Lava was left in an overnight cage at the shelter just before Christmas. With her lovely looks and friendly personality, it’s hard to understand why anyone wouldn’t want this sweetheart.
Lava and many other great dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are available for adoption from the Dallas Animal Services Adoption Center, located at 1818 N. Westmoreland at I-30 on the northeast corner. The shelter has new hours for the winter: Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.; closed Mondays. The cost to adopt is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats and includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and more. All dogs are negative for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit www.DallasAnimalServices.org or call 214-671-0249.
