SPCA Pet Adoption, July 14, 2016
From previous features: Valentine, Kirby and Peaches are still waiting for their forever homes. Duke is currently unavailable for adoption, but we will keep you posted on his status.
Here is this week’s pet: Nadine
Meet Nadine, a 10-year-old, black and white Labrador mix weighing 31-pounds. She came to the SPCA of Texas on May 3 after she was rescued by Humane Society International from a South Korean dog meat farm. That's right, she was going to be turned into meat for human consumption but she was lucky enough to be saved for a second chance at life. Before she came here, she knew nothing of human kindness or compassion, only cruelty and neglect. She is really shy and unsure of people, but is getting better at trusting them. She’s learning how great people can be and what it's like to get lots of love. One of the volunteers here even gave her a bath and she felt so good to be clean and pampered! She is looking for a home that will be patient with her and shower her with love. In return, she promises to love you forever. Nadine has been spayed, microchipped and am current on all of her age-appropriate vaccinations. If you are looking for a super gentle and sweet girl, look no further! Nadine is the one for you! She'd be so happy if you would come meet her today! If you have other animals, you can bring them to see how they get along! #146525
Still waiting for a home: Valentine
Meet Valentine, a 4-year-old, male Great Pyrenees mix weighing 63-pounds. His short fur coat is mostly brown, with splotches of white on his face, chest and belly. He even has this one spot on his forehead that looks like a heart! He’s been told it's pretty adorable. Valentine was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on May 24 because his previous owner did not have enough time for him. Now, he’s looking for a new family to share his love with. Before he came to the shelter, he was an outside working dog and didn't spend much time around humans. He’s a little unsure of all the new things he’s experiencing here, but the staff and volunteers have been giving him lots of TLC to help him gain his confidence. He’s shy at first, but will warm up to you quickly if you spend some time with him. He is very sweet, gentle and loving. He really enjoys being outside, especially if he has another dog to play with! In his previous home, he did great with older children and was very cooperative with them. Because of his shyness, he’d like to meet any children under 10 in the family to make sure they get along before you take him home. Valentine has been neutered, microchipped and is current on all age-appropriate vaccinations. Please come meet him today! He’d love to play outside with you! #146115
Still waiting for a home: Kirby
Meet Kirby, a 5-year-old, female Great Pyrenees mix with the softest white fur. She’s a big girl, weighing in at 71-pounds. She originally came to the SPCA of Texas on April 1 when she was surrendered to an Animal Cruelty Investigator. She was adopted, but brought back because she was a little too shy. Kirby had formerly been an outside working dog, so she is a little timid and unsure of people. The kind volunteers have been working with her, teaching her that it is okay to trust people and what love and a kind human touch feels like. She enjoys taking walks outside and lying out for a nice sun bath. She is looking for a family that will be patient with her and shower her with love and attention. In return, she’ll love you forever and give you lots of love and doggie kisses. She would love nothing more if you could come meet her today!!! Kirby has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all of her age-appropriate vaccinations. If you have other animals, you can bring them to meet her and see how they get along. She hopes to see you very soon! #146108
Still waiting for a home: Duke (currently unavailable)
Meet Duke, a 4-year-old, white and tan American Bulldog mix weighing 94-pounds. He’s a big fellow, that's for sure! He’d like to consider himself a gentle giant because of how sweet he is! Duke was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on May 16 because he didn't get along with the other pets in the home. He just loves having his humans all to himself, so he would do in a home as the only pet. A guy as big as he is has plenty of love to go around! He loves having his back scratched and will wag his tail to show you how happy he is. Duke is very active, loves to go for walks and play outside. He gets along fabulously with children, and adores spending time with them. Recently, he even got to spend time with the kids at the SPCA of Texas' Critter Camp and had a blast! They gave him lots of attention and brushed him from head to toe, making sure to give him a big hug afterwards. He loves treats, even the smallest morsel, but you won't find him begging for them. He is a big love, and wants nothing more than a family to cuddle with and give kisses. Duke has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today, and you'll fall in love! #146774
Still waiting for a home: Peaches
Meet Peaches, a beautiful tiger marked, 3-year-old, female Terrier mix weighing 25-pounds. You can see from her picture that she has a shy, but intense look. She came to the SPCA of Texas on March 23 when she was rescued by an Animal Cruelty Investigator because her previous owner could not properly care for her. Peaches hasn't had the easiest life so far, and she’s still learning how to trust people. She is timid and very shy when first approached, but lots and lots of constructive petting will help you gain her trust. When you put her leash on, her personality really shines. She’s like a whole different dog! Peaches walks well on the leash and is well-behaved outside. Recently, a nice volunteer gave her a bath and she did great! She did try to jump up on his lap when it was time to dry off, but he said it wasn't a big deal, water evaporates and hugging a wet dog has its rewards! Peaches is enjoying getting so much love and care, but she’s still getting used to how nice humans can be! After her bath, she walked back to her kennel with her head, ears and tail up with a strut that was deserving of the cleanest dog in the city! She’s definitely gaining some confidence and is enjoying the comfort of human companions. Because of her shy nature, she would do best in a home without children under the age of 10. She is a sweet, gentle girl who wants nothing more than a chance to have a home of her very own. Peaches has been spayed, microchipped and is current on age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet her today! #145977
