Grayson - Available for adoption

This is Grayson. He is a bottle feed kitten that was found at the rescue. We are in the country so we trap, vet and adopt out the feral cats out here. Grayson was found out on the land. His mother was probably moving him. We took him in so he could have a home, with a family, plus not really sure where his mother was. He is very sweet and loving. Maybe 4 weeks old. He is a medium hair Blue Russian. Probably related to Trouble, since Trouble was caught out here too. Grayson is available for adoption. (So is Trouble). Please contact us if you are interested. justinanimalalliance@yahoo.com




This is Trouble. He is a vetted feral barn cat that is available for adoption. He is neutered, micro chipped, and received a full set of shots. Please contact us if you would like to give him a home. There is more information on barn cats available at this link - http://justinanimalalliance.blogspot.com/2017/08/barn-cats-available-for-adoption.html




****UPDATE****

Grayson was adopted 10-6-17. We are happy to announce he now has a forever home and is no longer available for adoption. However Trouble is still looking for a forever home. Please contact us if you would like to adopt him. (940) 343-7848

Barn Cats available for adoption


Barn Cats

We have healthy, sterilized barn cats in need of new outdoor homes. These barn cats are feral (semi-wild) and need to live at a farm, horse stable, warehouse, plant nursery, or other suitable outdoor location. 

Veterinarian care has been given (sterilized, rabies shot, and vaccinated). $25 adoption fee. The property owners only responsibility will be to provide daily food/water, and protection from the elements. After a short period of secure confinement, the barn cats will accept your barn as their new home.  

The barn cats will keep rodents away from grain and food storage areas. If you own or manage property and have permission for long-term placement of animals on the property, please call us! We will assist you while the barn cats settle into their new home. 

The Justin Animal Alliance pulls from shelter euthanasia lists. We are a no kill animal welfare organization located in Justin TX on 7 acres, just minutes from the Texas Motor Speedway. We provide housing to  homeless animals, both cats and dogs, available for adoption at all times.

We welcome you to come visit with us. Please contact us for an appointment. (940)343-7848 or email justinanimalalliance@yahoo.com


Trouble

Currently we have Trouble available for adoption. He is a really handsome long haired Blue Russian cat, that is a very adventurous BARN CAT!! He is fully vetted and ready for adoption. Highly territorial and aggressive to other cats. Should be the only cat. Trouble is a feral cat that would be a great barn cat, but not a personal pet unless someone is willing to work with him.

















If you are looking for a barn cat please contact us to get more information on Trouble or to set up a time to meet him. He's waiting for you!!

Adopt, don't shop. Save a Life!





Koko

We also have Koko available for adoption. He is a very handsome yellow tabby who loves to patrol. Koko is a great mouser. He is looking for a nice barn to call home!


****UPDATE****

Koko was adopted at the end of August 2017. We are happy to announce he now has a forever home and is no longer available for adoption.

Rudy - Looking for a forever home!

Rudy is still looking for his forever home! He was sadly used as a bait dog in his early years, they cut his ears so short just to make him look mean, but he really isn't. He will probably do best in a home where he can be alpha, but he has been with other dogs before. He does think cats are food though, so he should avoid a home with cats. Please let us know if you are interested in this sweet boy!







If you are interested in meeting Rudy please contact us at (940)343-7848 or justinanimalalliance@yahoo.com

Thank you!

****UPDATE****

Rudy was adopted in September 2017. We are happy to announce he now has a forever home and is no longer available for adoption.

Feral Dogs

Feral Dogs

What is a feral dog? Feral means an animal is not domesticated. It grew up in the wild, under abandoned homes, or in the country, without human interaction. Feral does not necessarily mean aggressive. It just means the dog does not bond with humans. Feral dogs primary relationships are with other dogs.

Can a feral dog be domesticated? Yes with time and patience most feral dogs can learn to bond with humans.

What will it take to domesticate a feral dog? This depends on many factors. How feral the dog is and how willing it is to bond with a particular person. However the general answer to this question is yes. Feral dogs can be domesticated.

Training and working with feral dogs

There are many articles regarding working with feral dogs on the web. They can be found by doing a search for 'Feral Dog Rehabilitation' or 'What is a feral dog?'.

Socialization and human contact are going to be one of the highest priorities in training and working with feral dogs. Socialization is not to say to introduce strangers or other dogs to the feral dog. The dog does not need to be overwhelmed with stimulation. What is needed is slow, patient, and repeated one on one interaction. Don't rush the dog. Let the dog set the pace.

Feral dogs are usually fearful of people since living in a feral state can include negative experiences with people or other dogs. Often the processes of being trapped, put in cages, and brought to a rescue, can further distress the dog.

Mature feral dogs are more challenging to work with than puppies, but they can still learn to be wonderful pets.

The Justin Animal Alliance has successfully adopted out three adult feral dogs. Here is an article that was written up about the start of our rescue, under our rescue's original name, that refers to our first feral dog success story.




Currently we have three beautiful feral female Shepard mix dogs available for adoption. They are spayed, vaccinated, micro chipped and ready for adoption to a loving patient family that is willing to work with them.
