SPCA Pet Adoption, November 26, 2023
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. Deally 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.
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.
Durango, Caido, Wrangler, Pumpernickle, Chocolate, Daisy, One-Eyed Jack, Diamond, Oompa, Zeke, Rachel,and Leo are still waiting for their forever homes.

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.

His would be okay in a home or apartment. He's playful and loyal, but still learning to walk on a leash. He enjoys leisurely strolls and snuggling up on the couch.

Still looking for a new home: Zeke
Meet Zeke, a delightful 7-year-old Pit-Bulldog mix with a gorgeous smile he loves to flash! Zeke weighs 72 pounds, so he’s a bigger guy. He has a smooth, black coat except for a little bit of white on his underside and snoot. He’s as lovable as can be and has the friendliest grin on his face when he’s having a good time. Fun is something this dog is willing to invest a lot of time into. Zeke is a first-rate bum-wiggler and has the happiest prance imaginable when you get him out into the play yard. He also likes to chill out on couches and catch the latest TV shows. He gets along with other dogs and seems to be a good fit for kids too, so bring the whole family down to the shelter to meet him. Zeke came to the SPCA of Texas as a stray from Ellis County and would much rather not be out on his own again.
Zeke qualifies for our “Seniors for Seniors” program. If you are age 65 or older, you can adopt Zeke for free! Please visit his profile on the SPCA of Texas website to learn more about him and make an appointment to visit him at https://spca.org/adoptable/zeke/.
Still looking for a new home: Rachel
Meet Rachel, a wonderful, young dog looking for a forever home with the SPCA of Texas. Rachel is a Labrador Retriever mix who is just over a year-and-a-half old and weighs a dainty 26 pounds. She is covered in a beautiful jet-black coat which is reported to be at the highest levels of softness. She is currently in foster care, so an appointment will be necessary to meet her, but it will be more than worth the effort. Her foster reports that she is a very well-behaved little lady who can turn up the accelerator when it’s time to play. She gets along well with kids, other dogs and even the occasional cat.
Still looking for a new home: Leo
Meet Leo, a mixed breed dog waiting for his forever home at the SPCA of Texas. Leo has white fur with brown spots, including the proverbial patch over one eye on his face. He’s a big boy at 65 pounds and he is just over 3 years old. Leo is a friendly enough guy, but he needs a slow introduction. He came to the SPCA of Texas from an animal cruelty case and has made great strides and looks forward to fun times ahead, and a home with a calm environment would give him a sense of security for the transition. He’s good with kids over the age of 5, and does well with other dogs too. Leo is currently housed at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center, so no appointment is necessary to meet him in person.
