SPCA Pet Adoption, March 29, 2020




 


Special Announcement:

 

Due to COVID-19 and the Dallas County shelter-in-place order, we have made some changes to our operations, and will no longer be offering adoptions or fostering until at least April 5. Below, I have included some content on how we can help people, how people can help us, and where to find tips for caring for your pet. The attached photo is of Brutus, one of our dogs who is in foster care and enjoying spending time with some kiddos while everyone is in quarantine.

 

The SPCA of Texas is closed to the public until at least April 5 due to COVID-19, but they still need your help. Essential staff are at the shelters each day, working to provide the animals with the love and care they need. During this unprecedented time, the SPCA of Texas is doing everything in their power to attend to the needs of their pets, their staff and volunteers, and the community. Visit www.spca.org/covid19 for more information.

 

If you or a family member has been affected by COVID-19 and need assistance with your pet, the SPCA of Texas’ Pet Resource Center (www.spca.org/prc) can help. The SPCA of Texas’ Pet Resource Center can provide assistance (primarily food and urgent medical assistance through our outside veterinary partners) to families that have been affected by illness and/or business closures due to the current novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Please visit www.spca.org/prc for more information on how the SPCA of Texas may provide food, medical, housing, or other assistance for your pet.

 

If you are looking for ways to keep your pets entertained during quarantine, the SPCA of Texas has many tips, tricks and recipes for at-home enrichment to keep your pet occupied. Visit www.spca.org/petcaretips to find a library of information.

 

The SPCA of Texas continues to have hundreds of pets in their shelters who are under significant medical and/or behavioral treatment, and they will continue to rely on the organization to rehabilitate them and care for them. Please consider making a gift to support the SPCA of Texas and their life-saving efforts to help North Texas pets and people in need. Visit www.spca.org/give to make a donation now.

Still looking for a new home: Apollo

 

 

Due to COVID-19, we have made some changes to our operations, but will continue providing adoptions on an appointment basis. Please see the updated copy on how to adopt below. Thank you for your continued support!

 

Meet Apollo, a 2½-year-old, male Mixed Breed dog weighing 43-pounds. He’s a sweet, shy guy looking for a home of his very own. He came to the SPCA of Texas from a cruelty case in 2019. Due to his past, he can be fearful and shy in new situations but warms up quickly. Once he gets to know you, he is just SO excited to see you! In his foster home, he was friendly and well behaved around visitors- everyone loved his hilarious facial expressions! He seems to be completely house trained, and left alone uncrated, he didn't make any messes or tear anything up. He does really well on walks and rides well in the car, too. He would do best in a home as the only dog. If you’re looking for a loving boy to spend time with, he’s the one for you! Apollo has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations.

 

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 to the public through at least Sunday, April 5. We will continue to offer adoptions on an appointment basis, as we continue to have many wonderful animals in need of new homes. Customers are allowed to meet up to three animals per appointment. Please visit spca.org/dogadopt to make an appointment to meet a dog or spca.org/catadopt to make an appointment to meet a cat. Appointment hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m daily. Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older. 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 PetHealth Insurance provided by PetHealth, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, a rabies tag and a free leash. Call 214-742-SPCA (7722) or e-mail spca@spca.org.

Meet Gretel, a 6½-year-old, blue and white Mixed Breed girl weighing 65-pounds. She’s a happy, outgoing girl looking for a home of her own! She’s super sweet and affectionate, and she loves being a lapdog. She will even rub her head against you to show you some love. She likes to talk too, and will speak when you tell her to. She is a big fan of treats and will sit for them in return. She would do best in a home with older kids and no other pups – she’s got all the love you’ll need!

Still looking for a new home from Foster: Nala

 

 

Meet Nala, a 3-year-old, female Mixed Breed girl weighing 60-pounds. She's a little shy around people, but anyone who gives her the time to warm up will soon win her heart. Her absolute favorite thing in the world is a comfy bed, so she spends most of her day lounging on an orthopedic bed with lots of soft blankies and stuffed animals to keep her company. While she is still overcoming some of her fearfulness, Nala is overall a relaxed and low-maintenance dog. Even at 3 years old, she acts like an old lady already! Nala would love to go to a home with a friendly pup about her size who loves cuddling as much as she does. She'd also prefer a fenced-in yard so she can do her business without leaving the comfort of her domain. If you are interested in adopting Nala, you can actually take her on a test drive! She is eligible for a trial adoption, meaning we provide you with everything Nala needs for a few weeks until she's settled into your home. If it doesn't work out, that's totally ok - Nala will be happy to get a break from the shelter environment.

 

Email foster@spca.org if you'd like to learn more about adopting Nala! Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older.

Meet Coco, a 5 ½-year-old, male Bulldog mix weighing 90-pounds. He’s a big, lovable guy with the sweetest personality. He’s a gentle giant who loves to cuddle with people and hold hands. Once you start petting him, he will give you his paw for some hand holding. He walks very well on his leash, rides great in the car and is friendly with everyone he meets. If you’re looking for a big, friendly giant to take naps with, he is the one for you! Coco has been neutered, microchipped and has all of his age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today!

Still looking for a new home: Pinta

 

 

Meet Pinta, a 4-year-old, female Chihuahua mix weighing 13-pounds. She can be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she loves to cuddle! She adores belly rubs, snuggling on the couch and being around other dogs. In fact, she feels much better when she has another her pup, so she would prefer to go to a home with another dog.
