SPCA Pet Adoption, May 26, 2024


 


The SPCA of Texas Dallas Animal Care Center is open for adoptions every day from noon to 6:00 PM. Animals are available by walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments are also available for select animals. Animals at the Jan Rees-Jones building don't need an appointment. Some of the SPCA dogs up for adoption are temporarily housed in the Russell E. Dealey Rescue Center. This overflow area for adoptable animals is nearby but is accessible by appointment only. Please browse available animals at spca.org/findapet and visit spca.org/dogadopt to inquire about a dog or spca.org/catadopt to inquire about a cat.

 

These adult dogs and adult cats are at the SPCA of Texas' Dallas Animal Care Center and our Ellis County Animal Care Center (2570 FM Road 878, Waxahachie, TX).  Adoptions are sponsored by the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center. There's one exception—when a senior adopts a senior pet, age seven or older the adoption fee is waived. Puppies and kittens under the age of six months are $150. Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older, initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative, a microchip, 30 days of MetLife Insurance, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, a rabies tag and a free leash.

 

In honor of National Pet Month, the SPCA of Texas is offering FREE adoptions for all adult cats and adult dogs and 1/2 price adoptions for puppies and kittens through the end of May at both our Dallas and Waxahachie shelter locations.

 

Looking for a new home: Raya

 

 

Meet Raya, a 2 1/2 year old female mixed-breed pooch who is playful and loves people and toys, but isn't necessarily a cuddler. She's black and tan with a little white on her face (and looks like there is a beagle in her not-too-distant lineage). Lean and with a short coat, she is 41 pounds and is treat motivated. She got along well with a foster dog (the SPCA is giving mixed signals about her being with other dogs, but be sure to bring your kids and dogs down to meet any animal you plan to adopt and test it for yourself). She is housed at the Dallas Animal Care Center, so no appointment is needed to meet Raya. See her profile at https://spca.org/adoptable/raya/

Good news! Wizard and Dude were adopted! Barry White, Wyatt, Toot, Buster, Dina, Petey, Chata, Barnabas, Vaca, Caido, Diamond, and Oompa are still waiting for their forever homes.

 

 

Still looking for a new home: Allister

 

 

Meet Allister, a 2-year-old German Shepherd dog mix. At 61 pounds he's a big playful guy who loves people but doesn't know too many dogs, though he seems to be okay with the dogs he has met. He has a beautiful black and tan coat, bright eyes and erect shepherd ears. There isn't much information about him since he arrived as a stray from Ellis County. As we always recommend, bring family and pets down to meet any animal you're considering adopting. Allister's SPCA profile can be viewed here: https://spca.org/adoptable/allister/

 

Still looking for a new home: Barry White

 

 

Meet a sweet senior pitbull terrier mix named Barry White, who is a mellow soul who just wants to hang out near his people. He arrived at the SPCA with some skin issues that have been successfully treated and now he's ready for a forever home. At 74-pounds he is a big dog, but his photos show a dog who needs to gain weight to be at his best weight. His coat is white and sleek with a few black spots and he has dark eyes and floppy ears. Barry likes to walk on a leash and is motivated to work for treats. There isn't much information about his attitude toward kids and other dogs, but they think he probably would be ok. As always, take the two- and four-legged family members to the shelter to meet him before adoption. Barry White is at the SPCA of Texas Dallas Animal Care Center so no appointment is needed to meet him. His profile is at https://spca.org/adoptable/barry-white/.

 

Still looking for a new home: Wyatt

 

 

 

Meet Wyatt who is a nearly four years old mixed-breed male with a great disposition and contagious energy. At 70 pounds with a short brindle coat and white toes, chest and muzzle he is an attractive, willing, and affable walking partner. Wyatt is at the Dallas Animal Care Center so an appointment is needed (visit his profile and make an appointment from there). He is good with kids under 12-years and other dogs, but anyone considering adoption should bring the family and existing pets down to meet him. His profile can be seen at https://spca.org/adoptable/wyatt/.

 

Still looking for a new home: Toot

 

 

Meet Toot, a 72-pound mixed-breed (Heinz 57!) male with a short blonde and white coat with white feet. His demeanor is calm and happy and his expression is usually smiling. He is treat motivated and gets along with other dogs and people, including kids under age 12. 

For now Toot is being offered in the foster-to-adopt program because he is currently being treated for heartworms. He needs to be in a calm home and be fairly quiet due to exercise restrictions during the treatment. Toot is sometimes shy at first, but warms quickly and will love meeting you and your other dogs if you're considering adoption. Also, he is currently in the Russell Dealey Animal Rescue Center so an appointment is needed to meet him. View his profile make an appointment here: https://spca.org/adoptable/toot/

 

Still looking for a new home: Buster

 

 

Meet Buster, a playful male German Shepherd mix with soulful brown eyes and a short blonde coat. This easygoing boy is friendly and easy-going and loves going for walks. He's very good on the leash and is good with other dogs and with children under 12. At 62-pounds and two-years-old he is an adult dog who is eligible for the Spring Fling adoption price of only $25. Since Buster is housed in the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center an appointment is necessary to meet him. His profile can be seen at https://spca.org/adoptable/buster/

 

Still looking for a new home: Dina

 

 

Meet Dina, a shy big pup at just over 1-year-old; this mixed-breed pooch is about 50 pounds with a soft white dappled coat and dark ears. Dina loves ear scratches and cuddles, craves pats and hugs (she gives hugs!) and this gentle girl likes children under 12 and other dogs. She is housed at the Dallas Animal Care Center so an appointment isn't needed to meet her, but it is always a good idea to bring the kids and other dogs down to meet any animal you are considering adopting. Her profile is at https://spca.org/adoptable/dina/

 

Still looking for a new home: Petey

 

 

Meet Petey, a large white with brindle-brown patches mixed breed (looks a short coat and a mix of pitbull and some retriever and cattledog) and soulful eyes. At three-years-old  and 59-pounds he is full-sized and is out of all of his puppy stages. The shelter description says he is a loyal and gentle pooch who is good with other dogs. He is shy yet curious, but we don't know about how he is with small children, so as always when considering a dog to adopt take your current dogs and children to the shelter to meet him. Petey is at the Dallas Animal Care Center, and to see his profile visit https://spca.org/adoptable/petey/. Through the rest of February adult dogs and cats are $25 in the "True Love Has Paws" promotion.

 

Still looking for a new home: Chata

 

 

Meet Chata, a 2-year-old mixed breed white with black short-haired female who loves dogs and toys. It isn't known if she is comfortable with small children, but kids over 12-years should be fine. She is cuddly and playful and has a great smile and bright eyes. At 2-years old and 51 pounds Chata is full grown. She is housed at the Russell Dealey Animal Rescue Center so an appointment is needed to meet her, and please bring the whole family, kids and dogs, down to meet her before an adoption is final. Her profile and photos can be found at https://spca.org/adoptable/chata/.  

 

Still looking for a new home: Barnabas

 

 

Meet Barnabas, a four-year-old mix of American pit, bulldog, and terrier. At 65 pounds he has a blonde coat, yellow eyes, a sweet disposition, and is a social friendly pooch. When he arrived at the Russell Dealey Rescue Center he was fearful, but has come around to enjoying people in general, other dogs, and small children. He would be happy to join a family with other dogs. He has skills and learns well, especially responding to the offer of treats. Make an appointment at this link to meet Barnabas. Be sure to bring down the dogs and kids to meet him. His adoption fee is $75.

 

Still looking for a new home: Vaca

 

 

Meet Vaca, a two-year-old 70-pound Siberian Husky mix who was pretty timid when he arrived at the Russell Dealey Animal Rescue Center. He has learned that new people and new dogs aren't so scary, but it still pays to give him a little time to relax when you first meet him. They don't know how he is with small children and with your dogs, so as with any other pets available for adoption at the SPCA, take kids and dogs down to meet the dog you're considering adopting. Vaca's profile is at https://spca.org/adoptable/vaca/ and from this page you can click the "make an appointment" button to set up a meeting. Vaca's adoption fee is $75, but through the end of November, adoption fees for adult dogs and adult cats are waived.

 

Still looking for a new home: Caido

 

 

Meet Caido, a three-year-old male Shepherd dog mix. He's 74 pounds with a tan coat and white toes. He enjoys attention and treats, but there isn't a lot of information about him. He's okay with younger children and dogs, but Caido is at the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center so an appointment is needed to meet him. Children under 10 and family dogs should come down to visit him before an adoption plan is made. To meet Caido, click on the "Make an appointment" button on his profile link here. Caido's adoption fee is $75. 

 

Still looking for a new home: Diamond

 

 

Meet Diamond, a dynamic and spirited two-year-old pup searching for her forever home! This 49-pound beauty boasts a charming tan coat with adorable white paws and a touch of white on her nose. With her playful demeanor and intelligent nature, Diamond smart and sweet and is the ideal companion for an active and loving family. She loves playing with other dogs and gets along with kids; however, it’s important to bring siblings—dog and human—to meet her before taking Diamond home. What sets Diamond apart is her exceptional intelligence and eagerness to learn. She'd make an excellent running partner or hiking buddy. Diamond is waiting for her forever family at the SPCA of Texas Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center, so a prior appointment is necessary to meet her. Check out her profile.

 

Still looking for a new home: Oompa

 

 

Meet Oompa, a lovable and goofy two-year-old mixed breed dog, searching for his perfect forever home! This charming 68-pound boy is a bundle of joy and silliness, guaranteed to fill your life with laughter and happiness. Oompa's unique journey began when he was found as a stray, seeking refuge under a house alongside 12 other dogs. Despite his rough start, Oompa's resilient spirit shines through, and he's now ready to embark on a new chapter of his life with a loving family by his side. He is in Dallas at the Dealey Animal Rescue Center, so an appointment is needed to meet him. Despite his previous hardships, Oompa is great with other dogs, showcasing his ability to be a wonderful companion to furry siblings. He will be good with human siblings, too! With a little patience and love, Oompa's potential knows no bounds. Visit Oompa’s profile at https://spca.org/adoptable/oompa/ and click on the "Make an Appointment" button. Oompa's team will set everything up from there.
