ABOUT ME: The SPCA of Texas brought me in through a cruelty case in early November. I was found without food, water, and shelter. When I first came in I was extremely nervous and didn't want to be around people. But with loads of treats and toys I was able to open myself up to a select few. I'm hoping to find someone who will have a little patience with me so I can open up on my own time!

DREAM HOME: I require a home with a securely fenced in yard or a low-traffic apartment on the first floor. Please bring the whole family to meet me!

DOGS: I need to meet any dogs in the home. We need to be a great duo!

KIDS: 12+ only! No little kiddos for me.

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
