IDEAL HOME: Apollo is looking for a home where he can be the only pet in the home - he wants his family all to himself! Apollo's home should have a private, securely fenced backyard.

About Me: Hi there, my name is Cona! I know I am a hot mess. With my soft skin and all. But I gotta be cute, right? I am on my way to lose some weight because honestly aren't we all? I've spent time in a foster home and I occasionally ask them for pets or snuggles - it's always on my terms. Otherwise, I'm a really low maintenance and easy dog. I never bark, do fine when left alone, and go to the bathroom outside or will use pee pads if available. I love to sunbathe even though that means my foster parents have to spray doggy sunscreen on me first - yuck!HOME NEEDS: I need a calm, quiet home with a securely fenced yard. I'm still working on getting comfortable on leash and loud sounds make me nervous.DOGS: While I'm not a dog that actively tries to engage other dogs, I can peacefully coexist with calm doggos.KIDS: Adults Only, please.NOTE: I'm available for foster-to-adopt,so that the SPCA of Texas can provide medical and behavior support while I settle into a new home!COPY/PASTE for more cute pictures/videos of me: https://bit.ly/3wC66KlAPPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled.

ABOUT DAPHNE: Hi, I'm Daphne. If I could have any career, it would probably be as a doggy model. Everyone oohs and ahhs over my gorgeous red coat, beautiful amber eyes, adorable pink nose, and stoic expression. I was rescued from a cruelty case in October of 2019 and was SO SHY at first, but have made great strides and make progress in little ways every day. FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "Daphne is so low maintenance and she is gentle and sweet. We haven't had any issues with accidents inside and she gets along great with my dogs!" She also reported that I do well when left alone. LIKES: My favorite treats are canned chicken and hot dogs! I enjoy looking out the window and watching the world go by, but my favorite thing to do is play with other dogs.IDEAL HOME: I need a calm and quiet environment and require a home with a securely fenced yard. Walking on leash in the neighborhood still makes me nervous. Please bring everyone in the household to meet me. DOGS: Absolutely yes! Having another friendly dog in the home is a requirement. I get along with calm, independent dogs, but I really love playing with puppies. KIDS: No, thank you. Adults Only for me, please.COPY/PASTE this link into your browser to see more cute photos/videos of Daphne: https://bit.ly/2UDlOrfAPPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled. I'm in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet me!
About Me: I am Hilary and I am pretty much a sweetheart my foster says! She is a loving and calm lady who is independent and loves other animals! She is a fan of chin scratches and quite relaxing evenings at home. She has no problems with other animals in her home, which includes cats, dogs, and even a pig! She is more of a laid back gal, so she isn't interested in being the life of the party or going out for a night on the town. She would rather relax at home in front of the TV with her favorite people! Hilary came to the SPCA as pretty shy and fearful. While she has come SO far in her foster home, she would do best in a home with adults or children who are old enough to know how to respect her space and privacy when she wants it. Wanna know more or meet Hilary? Please fill out an application and we will connect you to her foster family.We also have Seniors for Seniors - If you are 65 or older and adopt a dog or cat over the age of 7 years, the adoption is free!
My name is Art! I am a staff favorite and I love making new friends. Some of my other hobbies are playing with toys (especially plushies), running zoomies in the play yards, and going on field trips to get pup cups - I've been told I ride very nicely in the car.I'm a handsome boy and do a wonderful sit. I also have some top-notch puppy dog eyes. You wouldn't know it to look at me now, but I came from a really bad situation. The person who used to own me was not very nice to me, so I came to the SPCA needing medical care and very scared of people. These days I'm a happy boy with a great smile and so much love to give.I'd love a home with a yard to play in, but I'm willing to try a first-floor apartment too! Really, I just want my home to be filled with all the love I didn't get in the beginning of my life (and snacks).I am a social butterfly when it comes to humans but I prefer all the attention on myself. I'd prefer older kids (12+). It would be great to meet everyone before I head home if possible.Fun Fact: One of my favorite snacks is green beans.COPY/PASTE this link into your browser for more photos: https://bit.ly/3nTINaEComplete an online application to meet me!SPECIAL NOTE: I'm available for foster-to-adopt. When you adopt me you will receive 6 weeks of FREE Training and post-adoption support through Goodpup!Current Special - Dogs over 6 months are only $25 to adopt!
ABOUT ME: My name is Heaven, and I'm a sweet angel who has not had the best start in life- I came from a cruelty case with a litter of pups and was scared of the world at first. Thankfully, I found myself a loving foster mom who has helped me work on my confidence! Now I'm ready for the next big step- finding my forever home. PERSONALITY: My foster mom describes me as a gentle, sweet, and silly girl who loves to be pet once you've gained my trust! I am also an absolute angel and am not destructive when left alone - I mostly just take naps and enjoy looking out the window. My foster mom says that while I am skill skittish with loud noises, I'm making more progress every single day. I'm dying to be loved! FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "To see Heaven come out of her shell is the most rewarding and BEST part of fostering her! She does a happy dance every time I enter the room as she is so excited to see me. Once she trusts you, she will love you with all of her heart!"DOGS: Because of my fearful nature, I require another dog in the home to help me come out of my shell! Please bring potential doggy siblings to meet me too! I'd love a calm dog in my new home - I'm not a fan of hyper doggos.CATS: I am very respectful of the kitties in my foster home! HOME REQUIREMENTS: I'd love a calm, quiet home with lots of fluffy places to lay on - like clouds! I will also need a home with a securely fenced-in yard since I still get a bit spooked going outdoors.KIDS: Although tiny kids are adorable, I'm looking for a home with kiddos 15+. Please bring the whole family to meet me!COPY/PASTE this URL to see more cute photos of me: https://bit.ly/35qjW7uAPPOINTMENT NOTICE: I am in a foster home so please complete an online application if you'd like to meet me!
ABOUT ME: Hi my name is Winston and I want to be your best friend! I love playing with my doggy foster siblings and chillaxin on the couch. I will never turn down a good bone or antler to chew on. I can be shy so it takes me a bit to warm up to new people but once I do, I am a total love bug. My foster mom says I am completely crate trained (it's my safe space when I feel scared and it is where I eat), house trained, and I'm working on leash training. I also love to be brushed and get pretty excited when foster mom clips my nails. DOGS: My foster mom has 3 very playful pups, including a small dog, and she says I am great with them. They also help me come of out my shell and learn how to play with toys and trust people. I will need to have a playful doggy sibling in my furever home. CATS: My foster mom has 3 and I'm not interested in them. DREAM HOME: I need a securely fenced yard where I can run around with my doggie sibling(s). I need a family that will be patient with me and know that it will take me awhile to feel comfortable with them. I would probably do best in a quieter home or a home that will have a quiet place for me to go if new people come visit. I would do best with older children that know when I need space. I love when my foster mom sits on the couch and I put half of my body on the couch next to her and she pets me. But I would love to do that with my furever family too! Could that be you?COPY/PASTE this URL to see more cute photos of me: https://bit.ly/2OHgdgrAPPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled- please fill out an online application to meet me!
Meet Kitten, the handsome senior cat with a serious love for food! Now, don't let his name fool you. Kitten may sound small and delicate, but he's a big boy with a big appetite. He's not picky either, he'll devour just about anything you put in front of him (as long as it's suitable for his diabetic diet, of course).Speaking of his diabetes, Kitten may need a little extra TLC in that department. But don't worry, he's a pro at taking his medication and monitoring his blood sugar levels- his friends at the SPCA will show you how easy his care is, so don't be intimidated! And when it comes to mealtime, he'll remind you with a cute little meow that it's time to chow down.Kitten is a lovable guy who just wants to be loved and have a few boxes to play in. He is a fancy fella who loves to dress up in sweaters, bowties, or whatever charming clothes you have on hand. Overall, Kitten is a lovable guy who just wants to be loved and fed. If you're looking for a furry companion who will keep you on your toes (and in the kitchen), Kitten is your guy! Come meet him today and see for yourself why he's the king of cuisine.Special Note: Kitten is available for foster to adopt, so you can foster him for a bit and get used to his medical routine before finalizing his adoption. We also have Seniors for Seniors - If you are 65 or older and adopt a dog or cat over the age of 7 years, the adoption is free!
