ABOUT ME: Hi I'm Rye. I came to the shelter after I was rescued from a hoarding situation. I was very skinny and timid but I still like treats! I need a family that will be patient with me as I continue to learn how to be a pet in a loving home!

DREAM HOME: I would do great in a home with a securely, privately fenced yard. I'm a bit shy, so I'd love a quiet space for outdoor time.

KIDS: 12+ please! I'll need to meet with everyone in the household before I go home.

DOGS: I think I may like a furry sibling! Please bring them to meet me.

SPECIAL NOTE: Adopters get to take me through a test drive on a trial adoption to ensure we're a great match!

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.
