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.

Still looking for a new home: Andy

 

 

Meet Andy, a sweet, 1-year-old Labrador Retreiver mix. With his floppy ears, black and white patches and big, brown eyes, it’s hard not to fall in love at first sight! Andy came to the SPCA of Texas from a cruelty case, and because of his rough past, he was very shy and timid around people at first. Over time, he has really warmed up to the staff and shown what a gentle, loving boy he is! He still needs to work on building his confidence, so he’s looking for a patient family who will work with him on his social skills. Andy is a calm, affectionate boy once he gets to know you and will make a wonderful lifelong companion. The SPCA of Texas asks that you bring all family members to meet him so everyone can get acquainted before you take him home. He would love to meet any potential canine companions, too! Andy is waiting to meet you at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. To request an appointment to meet Andy, please visit spca.org/adopt.

 

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: Fredrick
 

 

 

 

Meet Fredrick, a 5½-year-old Mixed Breed dog was rescued from a hoarding situation in February of 2020 and he’s made a lot of progress in his time at the SPCA of Texas. He was so nervous when he first came to the shelter, wanting humans to just leave him alone. Now, he can’t stop grinning and barks when his human friends leave him! Fredrick bonds faster with women so ideally there will be at least one woman in the home with him. He’s a little clumsy and a lot socially awkward – he doesn’t always know how to interact with humans, but he tries his best. Once he’s comfortable with you, Fredrick loves ear rubs and will gently paw at you for more if you stop. Fredrick gets along well with calm, laid-back dogs and wouldn’t mind a doggie sibling, but he does just fine on his own. Fredrick will need a fenced-in yard, as he can walk well on the leash but sometimes just needs a quiet space to do his business. Fredrick will need an adults-only home where he can feel safe and comfortable. He is available for a trial adoption, so you can take him home for a few weeks to see if he’s a good fit for your home before making things official. If you’d like to meet Fredrick, please request an appointment at spca.org/dogadopt. Don’t forget, all dogs and cats 6 months and older are just $25 to adopt at the SPCA of Texas’ Dallas and Ellis locations. Fredrick is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center.

 

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: Goldie

 

 

Meet Goldie, a 1½-old German Shepherd mix, a fun-loving and playful pup who loves to become one with nature. Goldie loves to sniff every tree, bush and flower she walks past. She’s just getting the hang of “sit” and can catch treats right out of the air. Goldie isn’t the best as leash walking yet, so she’d do best in a home with a big, fenced-in yard or a low-traffic apartment with easy access to a designated dog walking area. Goldie loves to run and it’s pretty amazing to see her gallop at top speed with her tongue flapping in the wind. This 62-lb dog is still learning how to maneuver her big self around smaller humans without knocking them over, so she’d like a home with teens and adults only. Goldie lights up when she sees her doggie friends, and loves to play chase with them, so she’d love to meet pups in the home to see if they have matching play styles. Goldie may appear confident and silly most of the time, but due to her life before being rescued by the SPCA of Texas’ Animal Cruelty Investigations team, she still gets a bit nervous and overwhelmed at times and will need a patient adopter willing to help her work through that. Don’t forget, for Shelter Pet Summer, Goldie and all other adult animals at the SPCA of Texas’ shelters and foster homes are only $25 to adopt! Goldie is waiting to meet you at SPCA of Texas Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center. Adoptions are by appointment only. To schedule a time to meet Goldie, please visit www.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.

Still looking for a new home: Caspian

 

 

Meet Caspian, 65-pound, 5-year-old Mixed Breed gentleman is a big, lovable goofball who enjoys playing, playing and more playing. Caspian loves running around outside, playing with his toys and soaking up the sunshine. He likes chasing balls but hasn’t really caught the hang of fetch yet. Caspian always has a big, silly smile on his face that gets even bigger when you pull out a handful of yummy treats for him. Caspian is looking for a home with a fenced-in yard for him to play in, when it’s not too hot outside of course. Caspian would like a home with kids 12 and up, and would like to meet dogs in the home first to see if they can keep up with his energetic play style. Please bring by all members of the family to meet him. To celebrate Shelter Pet Summer, you can adopt an adult dog or cat from the SPCA of Texas’ shelters for only $25!

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.

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!

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.

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: 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

 


Gertrude

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.
