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.

Calling all tabby fans, Tabatha needs a home! This gorgeous girl is just a year and a half and loves to play and nap. This beautiful tabby cat came to us last April as a kitten with her siblings when her owner developed serious health problems. She went to a foster home to get some socialization as she was a bit fearful of humans, and she’s been doing much better! Still, it’s been a year since she came to the SPCA of Texas and we’re scratching our heads as to why no one has scooped her up yet.
She’s feisty and independent, with some of the most soulful gold-green eyes we’ve ever seen. She gets a little overstimulated during play time (it’s the tiger coming out in her!) so she’d love a home without any children – Tabatha is very concerned she might accidentally scratching a person instead of a toy by mistake. She does great with other cats and even gets along well with older, laid back dogs!
If you’re interested in adopting this house tiger, email firstname.lastname@example.org!
This silly, snuggly pup came to us as part of a transfer from another shelter in rural Texas back in December 2017. We know very little about where she originally came from, but based on her fearfulness we can assume it wasn’t the best. Slowly but surely, and with lots of spoonfuls of peanut butter as bribes, Dottie has opened up. She still has a long way to go but she’s doing so much better in a home environment.
Dottie is a bit of a dork and likes to goof around but that’s why her foster parents love her! She adores other dogs and especially enjoys using her foster siblings as makeshift pillows or just completely lays on top of them. Dottie is all about comfort, specifically her own! She bonds more easily with men than women, but again, peanut butter is very persuasive. Dottie absolutely needs a home with another dog, because hanging with other pups is what makes her happiest! She’d love a home with a nice big yard to play in and preferably just adults to love on her. Interested in meeting Dottie? Email email@example.com – and read more about her adventures on her blog!
Have you been searching for a lap kitty to be your best companion? Look no further. Dutchess is an affectionate, cuddly cat with a heart as big as the sun. This lovely girl came to us by way of our animal cruelty investigations unit and has been a delight ever since. The one thing that has kept her from finding a home has been her herpesvirus diagnosis. She is more susceptible to upper respiratory infections and will need an owner who is willing and able to take her to the veterinarian if she develops symptoms.
Dutchess is an absolute sweetheart. She’s looking for a home without any other cats, so she doesn’t pass her virus onto them, but other than that she’d be happy to live with any type of family in any type of home. Interesting in adding Dutchess to your family? Email firstname.lastname@example.org today!
