Layla is a three-year-old Shih Tzu mix available for adoption from the SPCA of Texas. Her previous owners gave her up because they were not able to afford to care for Layla.

She's already spayed, she's micro-chipped and is current on all her shots.

Layla is just one of the dogs and cats looking for a new home. Are you ready for a loving companion? Call the SPCA of Texas at 214-742-7722 or visit the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center at 2400 Lone Star Drive in West Dallas.

And now through December 23, NorthPark Center in Dallas will host the 23rd Annual Adoption Pavilion, which is another place prospective pet owners can view available animals.
