SPCA Pet Adoption, June 20, 2021
In an effort to reduce the potential for COVID-19 to spread to more people via gatherings of people and protect the health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff and volunteers, as well as our community, the SPCA of Texas is closing our shelters, clinics, mobile adoption and mobile wellness events to the public until further notice. Adoptions are by appointment only.
Adoptions will be available by appointment only every Thursday and Saturday. Adoption counseling will be done virtually, and curb-side pickups will be offered whenever possible so that in-person meet and greets can be kept to a minimum. Adopters will need to submit an adoption inquiry form in order to begin the tele-adoption process and schedule an appointment to complete the adoption.
Looking for a new home: Art
Meet Art, who came to the SPCA of Texas after being terribly abused by someone. When he arrived, he had no idea that he had found a safe place- he was scared of people and didn't want them to come into his kennel. The vet diagnosed him with severe depression and it took him a bit of time to recover. Thankfully, the staff didn't give up on him and he has gained so much confidence since then! Art loves going outside, playing with toys (especially ball toys) and eating yummy treats! He would do best in a home with a private yard and in a home with adults only. Art is looking for a family who will be kind and patient with him as he learns how to be loved by people and shown how great being a pet can be! He has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. To celebrate #ShelterPetSummer, you can adopt an adult dog or cat from the SPCA of Texas’ shelters for only $25! The special will be offered for pets located at the SPCA of Texas’ shelters and in their foster homes, and adoptions will be by appointment only. To request an appointment to meet Art, please visit spca.org/dogadopt.
From previous features: Oso, Dilly, Cyrus, Archie, Roxy, Miranda, and Tater were adopted! Cutie, Blue Berry, Willie, Hariette, Eric, Harriet, Charcoal, CJ, Anya, Morticia, Gertrude, Stefan, JJ, Tanner, Kody, January, and Bosco, are still waiting for their forever homes.
Looking for a new home: Cutie
Meet Cutie, who came to the SPCA of Texas from a cruelty case with her litter of puppies. Since then, all of her babies have been adopted, so now it’s her turn to find a happy ending! She is sweet as can be and very smart, too! Cutie already knows commands like sit and come, and she is leash trained, crate trained and house trained. She’s the total package! Her goofy, fun-loving personality makes it easy to fall head over heels for her, and in return she shows plenty of love to all of her human friends. Cutie would do best in a home as the only pup and with kids ages 12 and up. She has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. To celebrate #ShelterPetSummer, you can adopt an adult dog or cat from the SPCA of Texas’ shelters for only $25! The special will be offered for pets located at the SPCA of Texas’ shelters and in their foster homes, and adoptions will be by appointment only. To request an appointment to meet Cutie, please visit spca.org/dogadopt.
Still looking for a new home: Blue Berry
Meet Blue Barry, a 2-years-and-9-months-old, male Terrier mix weighing 56-pounds. Blue Barry loves to play, and he’s a treat to watch zoom around the yard as he runs to fetch a toy. He likes to play rough and tumble, so he’ll need to meet any dogs in the home first so the SPCA of Texas staff can see if they will be good playmates. He knows how to fetch and sit for a treat, so he is a great choice for active adults. Blue Barry is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. Now through May 31, you can adopt any adult dog or cat for FREE. To request an appointment to meet Blue Barry, please visit spca.org/dogadopt to submit an inquiry.
Still looking for a new home: Willie
Meet Willie, a 3-and-a-half-year-old Mountain Cur mix. He is a playful pup who loves fresh air and taking in all the smells of nature! Squirrels are his passion – watching them, chasing them, sniffing their tracks – he just can’t get enough of squirrels. He even has a stuffed squirrel that he loves to play with! Willie was transferred to the SPCA of Texas from Louisiana ahead of Hurricane Delta in October 2020 with several other animals. While we don’t know much about Willie’s past, we think he’d enjoy a home with an owner who will teach him how to put his sniffing skills to work! He’s got a talent for tracking and we think he’d love to learn how to find your keys or the remote. Willie is a very playful dog and would love to meet other dogs in the home, as well as kids 12 and up, before making it official. Due to his drive to chase little critters, he will need a home without any cats or small animals and a fenced-in yard. Willie is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Willie, please visit spca.org/dogadopt to submit an inquiry.
Still looking for a new home: Harriette
Meet Harriette, a 3½-year-old, female Anatolian Shepherd mix. She’s fluffy, large and has mostly white fur and tan markings on her face. Harriette is a very sweet, loving and affectionate girl. Some of her favorite things include going outside to play with her favorite people, lounging around in the sunshine and being brushed from head to toe. Harriette would do best in a home with a large yard, or even a property with land. She’d prefer to be the only pup in your life, and she’d love to meet all family members before you take her home. Harriette is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Harriette, please visit spca.org/dogadopt to submit an inquiry.
Still looking for a new home: Eric
Meet Eric, an adorable, 7-year-old Mixed Breed gentleman. He weighs about 45-pounds and is mostly white with large splotches of black on his face and back. His floppy ears and big, brown eyes give him a serious look, but don’t let that fool you! Eric is a sweet and athletic guy who loves to play with other dogs. He’s enjoys playing outdoors, wrestling with other dogs his size and nuzzling up to his favorite people for petting. Eric would prefer a home without young children, and would do best with another canine companion in the household. The SPCA of Texas recommends you bring in your other dog for a meet and greet with Eric to make sure they are a perfect pair. Eric has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. Now through April 25th, you can adopt any cat or dog 6 months or older at the SPCA of Texas for 50% off their regular adoption fees. Eric is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Eric, please visit spca.org/adopt.
Still looking for a new home: Harriet
Meet Harriet, a 5½-year-old, Akita/Chow Chow mix weighing 63-pounds. She has a lovely red coat, perky ears, and big, brown eyes and is a happy, curious gal who loves snacks! She can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but after a few sniffs, she’ll warm up to you. Since coming to the SPCA of Texas, Harriet has blossomed from a reserved, timid dog to a spunky, fun and outgoing princess! She loves to run and play outside with the staff, and she will bounce around in delight for her spectators. Harriet would do best as the star of the show as the only dog in a home. The staff who care for her think she would do well with older children who can give her time to warm up before becoming best buddies. This unique dog will make a wonderful addition to a family looking for a playful but well-mannered companion. She has been spayed, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Now until April 25, you can adopt Harriet or any other adult cat or dog from the SPCA of Texas at 50% off regular adoption fees. Harriet is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center in McKinney.
Still looking for a new home: Charcoal
Meet Charcoal, a handsome, 6-year-old Catahoula Leopard dog mix. He has a gorgeous gray merle coat, floppy ears and a smile that will warm your heart. Charcoal can be timid around new people, but deep down he is a goofy, wiggly boy who loves to play. He especially enjoys being around other dogs, and is quick to engage his canine friends in fun and games. The SPCA of Texas thinks Charcoal will do best in a home with a yard for him to romp around in, and thinks he would really shine with a family who has another dog for him to buddy up with. He will make a great companion for anyone who’s wanting a silly pup to put a smile on their face. Charcoal is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Charcoal, please visit spca.org/adopt.
Still looking for a new home: CJ
Meet CJ, a 1½-year-old, Black Mouth Cur mix with a great personality! He spent some time in a foster home, where he showed that he is a funny, curious boy who loves to explore and play with toys. He came to the SPCA of Texas last year through their Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit, so he did not have the best life before. He can still be a little scared in unfamiliar situations, but he has come a long way. CJ would thrive in a home with another dog as his buddy – he just loves hanging out with friends, and they really bring out his confidence! He’s quite a smartie-pants, and has learned tricks like sit, come, stay and down from the staff at the shelter. This goofy, lovable sweetheart is sure to be a loyal companion to anyone willing to give him a chance. CJ is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet CJ, please visit spca.org/adopt.
Still looking for a new home: Morticia
Meet Morticia, a 6-year-old Shepherd mix with large, pointy ears and beautiful brown eyes. Like her namesake, the matriarch of the Addams family, Morticia is dark and mysterious, but with a good sense of humor and a creative way of showing affection. Morticia likes to stick her head under your arm to feel safe and loved, something she didn’t get much of in her previous life. She is also a huge fan of butt scratches and, as you can see from her plump figure, treats. Morticia loves her doggie buddies, and would love to meet any doggie siblings in the home at your meet and greet. She’s pretty timid and definitely not a fan of the leash yet, so she’ll need a fenced-in yard to do her business in. A laid back household with older teens and adults would be the ideal environment for her to thrive in. Sweet Morticia is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. Interested adopters can take her home for a trial adoption for a few weeks to see if she is a good fit for your home. To make an appointment to meet Morticia, please visit spca.org/adopt.
Still looking for a new home: Gertrude and Stefan
Meet Gertrude, a female, 2-year-old, Doberman Pinscher mix and Stefan, a male, 2-year-old, Doberman Pinscher mix. These two big, beautiful pups have sleek black coats, floppy ears and the characteristic narrow Doberman snout. That’s not all they share – Gertrude and Stefan share a whole lot of love for each other! They’re the best of friends, and the SPCA of Texas has pair bonded them so that they must find a home together. They can be a bit timid around new folks, but once they get to know you, they are huge sweethearts! They love to play together, cuddle and spend time outdoors. They are searching for a home with a large, fenced backyard where they’ll have plenty of room to run and romp around together. They’d do best as the only dogs and would prefer to share their home with teen and adult humans only. Gertrude and Stefan are waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.
Still looking for a new home: JJ
Meet JJ, a male, 1-year-old Shepherd mix weighing 22-pounds. He came to the SPCA of Texas through a cruelty case and was so frightened when he arrived! Thankfully, he found an awesome foster mom who helped him learn how to be a dog. He still has some progress to make, but he’s now on the hunt for a forever home. Once he opens up, he’s a ball of fun! He loves playing in water- the water hose is his favorite thing ever. He also met a turtle in his foster home and they were best friends! He is incredibly silly, so he’s sure to put a smile on your face. Thankfully, he doesn't need anyone to entertain him- he can do that all on his own. Either with toys, or his four-legged friends. He would do best in a home with a securely fenced yard, adults only and at least one other canine friend. JJ is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan-Rees Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.
Still looking for new homes: Tanner
Meet Tanner, a 7-year-old, American Blue Heeler mix weighing 28-pounds. He’s a pint-sized pup with a red and white speckled coat, triangular ears and brown eyes. He came to the SPCA of Texas through a hoarding case in August, where he had to share his space with a large number of other dogs. He's a sweet, wiggly boy looking for a home of his very own. He's the perfect little buddy, and would love to cuddle up on the couch, play fetch and gets lots of attention from his humans. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home so he can have all the love to himself. Potential adopters get to take him on a test drive through a trial adoption. Tanner is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan-Rees Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.
Still looking for a new home: Kody
Meet Kody, a 3½-year-old German Shepherd mix with the most handsome smile! He can be a little shy at first, but once he gets to know you, his playful personality really shines. He loves hard and plays hard, so he will need an adopter who can keep up. His foster mom said he’s super smart. He knows sit, down, leave it, and get it! He also learned how to use the bells on the door to go outside in just one day! He sometimes uses his intelligence for mischief and learned to turn over his slow feeder bowl to get his food faster, so now he eats his food out of snuffle mats and he LOVES them. He’ll require a house with a house with a large, private backyard where he can get all of his zoomies out multiple times a day. He’d do best with an active family who are looking for a dog to exercise and play with. He’s kind of a daddy's boy and tends to bond more with men, so hopefully there will be at least 1 male in the home he can look up to. No offense ladies! He can get a bit rowdy sometimes so he's looking for some humans who have experience with large, energetic goofballs like him and no children. If you have other dogs at home, bring them to meet Kody to see if they get along! If you’re looking for a fun-loving dude to stay active with, he’s the one for you! Kody is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan-Rees Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.
Still looking for a new home: Bosco
Meet Bosco, who just turned one year old. He’s a beautiful blue-gray mixed-breed dog with a short silky coat, weighing in at 50 pounds. He was rescued by the SPCA of Texas after being mistreated by his owner. He’s making up for all the fun he missed as puppy and is now a fun-loving, excitable doggy. He’s shown some reactivity while in the shelter and this may carry over into the real world, so he will require a house with a secure wooden fenced yard where he can’t see who is passing by. He will do better in a home with kids over 12 years old and does need to meet them before he is adopted. His ideal adopter is active and patient and will devote time to playing and working with Bosco to help him with his obedience skills. If you’re looking for fun-loving guy who is ready to be your companion, Bosco is the one for you! He is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. Please visit spca.org/dogadopt to make an appointment to meet him.
