SPCA Pet Adoption, May 24, 2020




 


Special Announcement:

 

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.

 

Looking for a new home: Gus

 

 

Meet Gus, a 5½-year-old, male Terrier mix dog weighing 17-pounds. He's a pint-sized pup with a solid black, scruffy coat, semi-floppy ears and big, brown eyes. He's got the cutest scruff around his mouth and chin, making it look like he's sporting a mustache! Gus is a loving, cuddly boy who adores being with people. He knows how to sit on command, is leash trained and house trained. He enjoys spending time with his favorite people, so much so that he would do best with an adopter who is home most of the time. He’s looking for a family with kids over 12, and would prefer a house with a yard. If you're looking for a fun-loving little guy to sit in your lap, he's the one for you! Gus 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.
 

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.

 

Please browse our 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.

 

From previous features - Pierre was adopted! McGunner, Blake, Nala Bear, and Chunk are still waiting for their forever homes.

 

Still looking for a new home: McGunner (from McKinney)

 

 

 

Meet McGunner, a 2½-years-old, male Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix dog weighing 92-pounds. He’s a large, loving boy looking for a home of his own. He has a cream colored coat with a large white stripe down his chest and big, floppy ears. He’s a sweet, goofy boy who loves attention from people. He would do best in a home with a nice fenced yard to play in and a calm house to take it easy in. He enjoys time with adults and older children, nap time and being loved on. He’s smart, too, and knows how to sit, shake and come on command. If you’re looking for a gentle, calm boy to spend time with, he’s the one for you! McGunner is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center in McKinney. Please visit visit spca.org/dogadopt to make an appointment to meet him.

Still looking for a new home: Blake

 

 

Meet Blake, an 8-year-old, male Labrador Retriever mix dog weighing 52-pounds. He's a handsome, solid black gentleman with big brown eyes and floppy ears. He's smart, a bit mischievous and full of love! He's the zen master . . . for the most part. While he loves spending my day hogging the couch or recliner, he can also get some crazy energy when he's in the mood. He gets along with children, and enjoys playing with other large dogs. He knows how to sit and stay on command, and he's also crate and leash trained! If you're looking for a cool senior dog to snooze on the couch with, he's the one for you! To learn more about Blake and begin the adoption process, please visit spca.org/dogadopt.

 

 

Still looking for a new home: Nala Bear

 

 

Please browse our 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.

 

Still looking for a new home: Chunk

 

 

Meet Chunk, a 2 ½-year-old, male Pit Bull mix. He’s a lovable and loyal guy looking for some humans to be best buddies with. His previous owner said he knows several commands (if you pay him in treats), rides well in the car, and is house trained. He is pretty spoiled by the staff at the shelter and they usually let him hang out with them in their office! He loves tennis balls! Chasing them, chewing them- they're just so much fun. If getting attention is considered a hobby, it's definitely his! Because he LOVES people, hanging out with the humans is how he likes to spend most of his time. He'll need a home with a private, securely fenced yard and adults only please! He would also do best as the only pet in the home, but he promises he'll bring all the love you'll need! Potential adopters are able to take him on a test drive through a trial adoption! Meet and greets are by appointment only, so contact Foster@spca.org to schedule.
