by Stephanie Daniels
Thanks to generous animal lovers, all of last month’s pets have been adopted! Here are four more who would make wonderful additions to your family.
Dallas Pets of the Month
Meet Bogart, an adorable 3-year-old Labrador Retriever mix. Bogart was transferred to the SPCA of Texas Oct. 22, and he can’t wait to find his loving forever family. With his ear-to-ear smile and a tail that won’t quit, Bogart will always be happy to see you. He promises to cheer you up, even on your worst days. Bogart is a big silly kid at heart, with lots of energy to spare; he just loves to run around and chase toys outside! Did you know that you can bring your current, vaccinated pets to the shelter to meet potential pets like Bogart? This sweet guy is already neutered, micro-chipped, heartworm tested (he is negative) and has received his age-appropriate vaccinations. So what do you say? Come in and meet this precious boy today! #123250
Meet Prissy, a beautiful, petite 3-year-old Domestic Medium Hair mix. Prissy has a beautiful red tabby coat and lovely golden eyes. She was transferred to the SPCA of Texas on Oct. 22 so that she can find her forever home! Prissy can be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she is as sweet as can be! She is a quiet, laid-back gal who loves a chin scratch and back rub. This sweet kitty enjoys spending her days napping in the sun, gazing out of the windows, snuggling in a comfy bed and batting around the occasional toy mouse. Prissy has been spayed , FIV/FeLV tested (she’s negative), micro-chipped, received her age-appropriate vaccinations and is litter-box trained! Prissy is also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet); because she has been waiting for her new, loving family for more than 30 days, she has a special, lower adoption price! Prissy is sure to fill your life with lots of love, laughter, and purrs. What are you waiting for? Come and meet her today! #58912

McKinney Pets of the Month
Meet August, a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix, who weighs a whopping 8 pounds! This sweet boy was transferred with 60 other dogs to the SPCA of Texas on Oct. 18 from the Tulsa Humane Society, after two commercial breeders closed their operations and surrendered their dogs to the organization. August has the most adorable face and cute little ears that flop over. While his body may not be big, his heart certainly is. August is a bundle of love and would like nothing more than to sit in your lap all day long. In fact, he will just jump up there all by himself and settle in for a good, long petting session. August has been neutered, heartworm tested (he’s negative), microchipped, and has had his age-appropriate vaccinations, so he’s ready to be all yours. Why don’t you come take August home with you today? #123012
Meet Sandie, a laid-back 5-year-old, 17-pound Domestic Short Hair mix. He has a beautiful buff tabby coat that goes so well with his amazing gold eyes. Sandie was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on August 3 because his previous owner had too many animals. He is a very gentle boy and has a lovely relaxed attitude. Sandie enjoys lounging about, observing his surroundings and napping, but he also likes to come and snuggle up to you and say hello. His previous owner described him as “very loving and friendly,” as you can tell by his constant purring when you pet him! He has been neutered, FIV/FeLV tested (he is negative), micro-chipped and has received all of his age-appropriate vaccinations. You are sure to fall in love with Sandie when you come and say hello, so what are you waiting for? Come and meet him today at the SPCA of Texas in McKinney! #118677
