Looking for a new home: Elton

 

 

Meet Elton, a handsome, 2-year-old Mixed Breed boy who is looking for a fun-loving family. He came to the SPCA of Texas after being found on the streets as a stray, and it was clear he hadn’t had the best life before coming to the shelter. Since then, he’s putting his past behind him and finding fun wherever he can. Elton is very playful and loves to play with all kinds of toys, and he even carries his favorite ones on his daily walks. He’s curious and enjoys exploring, but he’s also happy to take it easy indoors while soaking up attention from people around him. Elton is a Shelter Sweetheart, meaning his adoption fee is sponsored and he receives 6 weeks of FREE on-demand training from the GoodPup training app. Elton has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. To meet Elton, please submit an inquiry at www.spca.org/dogadopt.

Still looking for a new home: Aggie

 

 

Meet Aggie, a sweet, 7-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix who is the laidback lady you’re looking for. As a senior, Aggie is all about taking things slow and enjoying the little things in life. She is very gentle, quiet and calm, preferring to spend her time snuggled up in bed or going for leisurely strolls. Aggie loves to be petted, and leans into you for more attention once you give it to her. She can be a bit shy at first, but it doesn’t take her long to warm up to you – especially if you have snacks! This easygoing girl would make a great addition to a family looking for a couch companion and cuddle buddy. Aggie has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. Now until November 24, all adult dogs and cats at our shelters are only $25 to adopt during our Thankful for You adoption special. To meet Aggie, visit her at our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center any day between noon and 6 p.m.

 

Still looking for a new home: Robert

 

 

Meet Robert, a 4-and-a-half-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix who is a big hunk of love! Despite his impressive size, Robert is convinced he makes the perfect lap dog. He loves to be petted all over, but he’s especially fond of back and ear scratches. He’s also a lover of all kinds of treats, and he’ll even sit and shake in exchange for one. Robert is very polite, walks well on his leash and is already crate trained. This well-mannered pup would do well in just about any home, and he’ll be sure to bring all the love you could ask for. Robert has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. Now until November 24, all adult dogs and cats at our shelters are only $25 to adopt during our Thankful for You adoption special. To meet Robert, come visit him at our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center any day between noon and 6 p.m.

 

Still looking for a new home: Midge

 

 

Meet Midge, a one-and-a-half-year-old Mixed Breed lady who has everything you could ask for in a dog! She is loving, intelligent and as sweet as can be. She came to the SPCA of Texas after she was found as a stray, and now she’s looking for a home of her own! Midge spent some time in an SPCA of Texas foster home, where her amazing personality really shined! She proved to be an easy pup, getting along with cats, other dogs and children. She’s also very smart, can sit on command and appears to already be housetrained. This fun-loving girl would love a home where she can spend lots of time with her people, go for plenty of walks and enjoy activities that make her think. Midge has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. She is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To meet Midge, please submit an inquiry at www.spca.org/dogadopt.

 

Still looking for a new home: Annie

 

 

 

Meet Annie, a fun-loving, 2-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix weighing 75-pounds. This big, beautiful girl has a great personality and the cutest face to go along with it! Annie is a happy, wiggly gal with lots of pep and energy. She loves to play with toys, go for energetic walks and hang out with her human friends. Annie is open to meeting other pups, but she would do best in a home with children over the age of 5 due to her size and energy. If you’re looking for a lively pup to take on adventures, Annie is the one for you! Annie is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To meet Annie, please visit the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center, open from noon to 6 p.m. daily, or visit www.spca.org/dogadopt to schedule an appointment to meet her.

 

Still looking for a new home: Bella

 

 

Meet Bella, a goofy, 2-year-old American Bulldog mix has a big body with an even bigger heart. Weighing in at 80-pounds, Bella is big, beautiful and bustling with energy. She came to the SPCA of Texas from unfortunate circumstances, but has since gotten her groove back and let her personality shine. Bella has the cutest, squishiest face that you won’t be able to resist petting. She loves to snuggle, and always offers a big wag of her tail when you give her attention. Often, she’ll greet you with a toy in her mouth signaling that she is ready to play! Bella loves to play with all kinds of toys, and is especially fond of games of tug and fetch. She knows how to “sit” on command, and is eager to learn more tricks in exchange for a tasty treat or two. Due to her staggering size, the SPCA of Texas thinks Bella would do best in a home with children ages 15 and up. She would prefer to be the only pup in the home so she can soak up all of your love and attention. Bella is eligible for a trial adoption, so you can take her home and see how things go before making your adoption official. This week, for Clear the Shelters, the SPCA of Texas is offering free adoptions from September 13th to 19th. The SPCA of Texas is happy to partner with Park Place Dealerships to find even more pets loving homes. Don't miss this opportunity to meet your new furry family member at the SPCA of Texas! Bella is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.

 

Still looking for a new home: Peanut

 

 

Meet Peanut, a 2½-year-old Mixed Breed who is always ready to play and have fun. Peanut is a bionic dog – he might not be able to walk through a metal detector without setting it off, but at least he can play again! After two knee surgeries, he will always need to take it easy and not jump off porches or furniture to avoid putting additional stress on his joints, but Peanut doesn’t let anything slow him down. Peanut is a strong puller, so he might do better in a home with a yard where he can get a little time to get his energy out before walking on the leash, or at least someone who doesn’t mind very brisk walks. Peanut is super smart and loves cheese treats, so he’s already picked up both “sit” and “stay.” Peanut would greatly benefit from additional training to keep his mind sharp and improve his manners. He can get a little over excited especially first thing in the morning, so he’d love a home with kids 12 and up. Peanut is polite to other dogs on his walks and would like to meet any dogs in the home before adoption. Right now, all dogs and cats 6 months and older are just $25 to adopt at the SPCA of Texas’ Dallas and Ellis locations. Peanut is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center.

 

Still looking for a new home: Simon

 

Meet Simon, a 9-year-old, male Great Dane mix. He’s a big fellow, with a red merle coat and a dazzling smile. Don’t let his age fool you, he still has the energy of a young lad! He came to the SPCA of Texas as a stray, so not much is known about his past, but he has shown what a big sweetheart he is while at the shelter. Simon is a fun dog who likes to live life moment to moment. He is always super excited to see his human friends and can get a bit jumpy, so he’ll need a home with kids 12 and up. Simon likes the simple things – jumping in mud puddles, playing tug-of-war and cuddling with his stuffed animals. Despite his age, Simon very much has the energy of a young pup, and will be happy to join you for brisk walks in the park and adventures. Simon can’t wait to meet his future humans and start keeping them on their toes. Right now, all dogs and cats 6 months and older are just $25 to adopt at the SPCA of Texas’ Dallas and Ellis locations. Simon is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center.

 

Still looking for a new home, together: Frasier and Lilith

 


Frasier

Lilith

 

Meet Frasier and Lilith! Although they seem like polar opposites, their chemistry is undeniable. Lilith, a 1½-year-old Hound mix is quite shy and fearful, while Frasier, a 4-year-old Pit Bull mix, is bright and friendly. Lilith prefers to hang back and just watch the action while Frasier gets all the attention from his human friends. But both dogs are happiest when they’re together! Lilith relies on Frasier for emotional support and to help her feel more confident around humans, and Frasier loves having a best friend to tell all of his secrets to and give him snuggles. These two were found as a pair of strays in Ellis County, so the SPCA of Texas doesn’t know much about their past, other than that they have formed an unbreakable bond. This odd couple is looking for a home with teens and adults, and would prefer a fenced-in yard but would be willing to try a quiet apartment. Frasier and Lilith have been spayed/neutered, microchipped and are current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. Right now, Lilith and Frasier’s adoption fees are just $25 each. Frasier and Lilith are waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center.

 

Still looking for a new home: Squash

 

 

Meet Squash, a 9-year-old 67-pound German Shepherd mix, a sweet old man who was transferred to the SPCA of Texas after being found as a stray in Ellis County. He’s generally a pretty chill pup, but he lights up when he sees one of his human friends coming. A human always means treats, walks, food or cuddles – all things very close to Squash’s heart. Squash gets a bit overwhelmed around other playful dogs, so the SPCA of Texas thinks he’d prefer a home with an older, calmer female dog for a companion, or to be the only dog in the home. Please bring any dogs in the home to your meet-and-greet with Squash. Squash is a smart, gentle pup who would love to be your couch buddy and join you for casual strolls through the neighborhood. He would do fine in any type of home or apartment, as long as there’s a nice big dog bed and plenty of treats. Squash is heartworm positive, but the SPCA of Texas covers his treatment at your local VCA Animal Hospital. Squash is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center. Right now, Squash and all other adult dogs and cats are just $25 to adopt. To request an appointment to meet Squash, please fill out the application at spca.org/dogadopt.

 

Still looking for a new home: Zig

 

 

Meet Zig, a unique-looking pup who is shy with new people, but with a little time and a doggie friend by your side, his playful personality begins to shine. This 2-and-a-half-year-old Mixed Breed dog has these intensely ice blue eyes that are just stunning to look at. He originally came from a hoarding situation and will always have a little stress and fear at times, but he’s made so much progress in his time at the SPCA of Texas. Zig’s favorite thing in the world is playing outside with his doggie friends, and he has a lot of them! Zig is friendly and polite, so he’s very popular with other dog-friendly pups. Zig will need a home with a fenced-in yard and a doggie sibling for him to play with. Kids in the home need to be 12 and up and he’d like to meet all members of the household before going home with you to make sure it’s a good fit. The SPCA of Texas is still celebrating Shelter Pet Summer, so 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. Zig is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Zig, please fill out the application at spca.org/dogadopt.

 

Still looking for a new home: Clarabelle

 

 

Meet Clarabelle, a bashful, 3-year-old, 47-pound Hound mix looking for a home where she can learn how great it is to be a pet in a real home! Clarabelle is shy around strangers, but with a little petting and offerings of yummy treats, she warms up to her human companions. She did not have the best life before coming to the SPCA of Texas, so she’s eager to find a loving family who will let her adjust to her cushy new lifestyle on her own time. The SPCA of Texas thinks Clarabelle would do best in a home with children over 12 and either a fenced-in yard or a low-traffic apartment where she can spend peaceful time outdoors. She’s ready to share her love with anyone willing to give her a new leash on life and show them what a gentle, loyal and affectionate dog she is! To celebrate Shelter Pet Summer, 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. Clarabelle is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Clarabelle, please fill out the application at spca.org/dogadopt.

 

Still 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.

 

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 Barry

 

 

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: 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: 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.

 

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: 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.
