If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

This week we want to give you a closer look at Ben, courtesy of our friends over at ReadingGlasses.com! Clearly, this long-term resident hasn’t found their forever home yet because the right person just hasn’t laid eyes on them yet!
Before coming to the SPCA of Texas, Ben was found as a stray – so we don’t know too much about his past. What we do know about this 2-year-old mixed breed dog is that he is always happy to make new friends! He loves humans – they have toys and peanut butter and take him on walks – what’s not to love?
Ben would love a home with a family who would love to play with him in the backyard and maybe take him on some fun adventures like hiking! He’d love to play some sports in the backyard with active kiddos who don’t mind if he might get excited and knock them over by accident when he jumps up to give them a hug. He’d love a home with a fenced-in backyard – at least 8 feet, because this stout guy is surprisingly good at jumping!
Ben doesn’t make an amazing first impression with other dogs – he likes to bark, bark, bark at them – but when properly introduced to a good playmate, he has the best time ever romping around with them! So we’d like you to bring your dog for a meet and greet so we can make sure they have a smooth introduction and start off with their best paws forward!
This handsome, wiggly hunk is ready to go home with you. Ben is neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations. To learn more and to make an appointment to adopt Ben, please visit spca.org/adopt.
