Meet Harley, a very handsome 10-month-old, 43 pound, Pit Bull mix. He has a soft tan and white coat with beautiful light brown eyes. Besides his dashing good looks he is also one smart cookie! He has been working on his leash walking skills and catches on to learning new things pretty quickly. He is an active guy who enjoys going for walks and romping through the great outdoors. He was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on July 9th because his previous owners fell on hard economic times and could no longer afford to take care of him. Harley is a sweetheart who always loves to greet people with his tail wagging and his tongue hanging out. He can be a little particular about his canine friends and he needs to go to a home with no small dogs. If you have a dog and are thinking about adopting Harley, he would love to meet them first! Did you know that you can bring your current, vaccinated pets to the shelter to meet potential pets like him? Harley is also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because he has been waiting for his new, loving family for more than 30 days, and he has a special lower adoption price! Harley has been neutered, Heartworm tested (he’s negative), micro-chipped, and received his age- appropriate vaccinations. What are you waiting for? Come and meet Harley today! #117420
Meet Saphira, a beautiful 5-year-old, 11 pound, Domestic Longhair mix. Saphira has a gorgeous soft brown tabby coat with lovely green eyes. She has cute patches of white on her chest and paws that accentuate her long white whiskers. Saphira can be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she is as sweet as can be! She likes to be petted and will lean into you and nudge your hand to show how happy she is. Saphira was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on August 3rd because her previous owner was not able to spend enough time with her. According to her previous owner, she gets along with children and other cats. She is a couch potato that just wants to be loved, but she also enjoys playing with toys! She has been spayed, micro-chipped, FIV/FeLV tested (she’s negative), and received her age-appropriate vaccinations! Would Saphira make the perfect addition to your family? Come and meet her today! #118678
