These are some of the "12 Strays of Christmas," or adoptable animals highlighted by Best Friends Animal Society and the Bert Show.

If you’re still looking for the perfect holiday gift, an adorable animal wouldn’t mind scratching that off your list.

For a dozen days leading up to the 25th, the “12 Strays of Christmas” campaign aims to find homes for the animals who have been at Best Friends-Atlanta shelter the longest.

The program is on its sixth day, and a spokeswoman said Thursday afternoon that some of the featured animals haven’t yet been adopted.

This is the seventh year The Bert Show’s Kristin Klingshirn has partnered with the shelter to bring attention to the animals on the Q100 radio program.

The shelter, which is part of the national Best Friends Animal Society organization, is located at 4874 S. Atlanta Road in Smyrna. 

The pets for the 19th and the 20th were already adopted.

Parker Rogers of Fresno, Calif., was having almost daily seizures. The 9-year-old met Toby, a yellow Labrador from a local shelter. Toby learned how to detect Parker's seizures before they happened. Toby can fetch emergency medication or get Parker's mom when one starts. The family donated to the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno in gratitude.
