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.

Today’s Whisker Wednesday feature is the ever-so handsome Bandit! Bandit is a little shy with humans, but he adores other kitties. Once he gets to know his human friends, he does beg for attention and pets – he just likes to get to know you first before he starts showing off his cuddly side. As he’s spent more time at the SPCA of Texas he’s loosened up a lot around new people, and it takes him less and less time to get comfortable around new human friends.
As for his feline friends, Bandit is fairly confident – he meows at his friends across from his kennel and when he gets to come out for exercise time, he trots around the room saying hello to all of his buddies. He would be happiest in a home with other kitties who will play with him, snuggle and keep him company.
Bandit has a sensitive tummy, so he is on a prescription diet and probiotics. Other than that, he’s a pretty easygoing fella! Bandit is neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations. To make an appointment to meet Bandit, please fill out the form at spca.org/catadopt.
If you can’t adopt Bandit, he’s also available to go to a foster home with someone willing to help him find his forever home! If you’re interesting in fostering Bandit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
