Available For Adoption
Cattle Dog mix
Dixie is approximately two years old and has been outside most of her life. She could learn to be an inside dog we are sure! She is good with people and loves to keep track of people coming and going and make sure they are ok. Dixie is located in Mason Texas waiting for her forever home. She is spayed, immunized, heart worm negative and on heart worm preventative. How about learning more about this healthy young girl!
Cattle Dog mix
Taffy is about two years old and is a little unsure of things right now. She is friendly and eager to please and once she feels more secure is sure to be a super family dog. She has spent most of her life outside but will adapt to inside too! This sweet girl is spayed, vaccinated, heart worm tested negative and on heart worm preventative. You can find Taffy in Mason Texas looking for her new home!
Retriever Pointer Mix
We have a GEM of a dog! Our volunteers report that he is one SWEEEEET dog! We estimate his age to be about 1 year old, and possibly a retriever / pointer mix. Sarge is on the thin side and in need of a few good meals. He knows some basic obedience and he LOVES to play fetch with you! Sarge is a really wonderful companion, and would make an excellent addition to a family.
Meet Brody! Brody was picked up by animal control and his owners have not claimed him. He is under a year old. A happy, playful and energetic pup who would do well in an active home. Are you looking for a hiking partner or running buddy? Brody may be that perfect match for you!
Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler Mix
Curious Pepper was rescued from the Mason Pound last week and this 4-5 year old heeler mix is a little bit of a mess. We are working to get him all fixed up! Sometime in his past he sustained a leg injury and it was not taken care of properly. His body has taken over healing as best it can. He will probably always have limited function of his back leg but he still gets around pretty well. He also has a tooth with an exposed nerve which will need to be pulled when he is neutered. He had an abscess on his face which was drained, and he was prescribed 3 medications to help with all the above! The good news is that he is heartworm negative, and he is now fully vaccinated! He will be neutered in a couple of weeks as well as have his other work done and be all set for his new home! Pepper is a super sweet guy who just wants to hang out with his people.
Whose that pretty kitty!!! Meet Lily. Lily is a 4 1/2 year old bundle of squishy fluffiness :-) Lily is a purring machine whose activities include eating, sleeping and the occasional speed waddle down the hallway! She loves to be brushed, and unlike most cats really enjoys belly rubs. Lily is spayed and current on her vaccinations. She will need to be an INDOOR only home.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
Mollie is one of our recent rescues from our local pound. Unfortunately, after her initial visit to the vet we learned that she is heart worm positive. The good news is that Mollie has begun her treatments, and we expect her to be perfectly healthy after they are completed! Mollie has joined a foster home while she goes through her treatments, and her foster mom reports that she is a total sweetheart. She has done great with kids ranging from 3 to 13 years old. She is getting along well with other dogs, and more than anything just wants to cuddle! We are pre-approving applications for Mollie now. If you are interested please give us a call or email us at 325-347-6929 / email@example.com.
Heart worm treatment is expensive. If you would like to help sponsor Mollie’s vet bills you can make a tax deductible donation right here on our website Click on the donate button which will take you to PayPal. Please reference “Mollie” so we know how to apply the funds. Thank you again for your continued support and help networking our adoptable dogs and cats!
Roamer is a very nice girl at about two years old! She walks well on a leash, at least after she has a chance to get some energy out. Roamer was living with a homeless man who just could not take care of her any longer. She is very attentive to her people and LOVES being petted. She is tested heart worm negative and on preventative, up to date on all her shots and ready for her new life with her new forever family! Roamer is in Mason Texas eagerly waiting to meet you!
Kittens get all the attention, but Taz thinks she is just as cute as those little fur balls! Taz is a 4 1/2 year old female who loves attention. She can be a little shy at first, but once she knows you she wants to be your constant companion. Taz is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She has been an indoor cat only, and therefore needs the same in her forever home.
Punkyduddle and Pussy-Anna are two sweet adult cats needing to find a new home. Their current owner is 91 and having to move, and unfortunately, she cannot take her kitties with her. These two are brother and sister, and about 4 years old. They have been spayed & neutered. Both can be very shy, but once they get to know you they both love to be pet. They are used to being indoor / outdoor cats.
If you or someone you know is interested you can contact their owner directly (Jean at 325-338-4094). Thank you for passing on their info and helping them find a new home!
Kevin is a very lovable boy! He is a 2 year old who gets along well with everyone he meets. He thinks cats are great too! He has been working on a separation anxiety issue and he is doing great. As long as his people or a furry dog friend are around he is super happy! Kevin is perfectly crate trained and he comes with his very own crate. Kevin is up to date on immunizations and all that important stuff. Kevin is in a foster home in Austin Texas waiting for his forever home. He does need to be in a home with other dogs because of his fear to be alone.
