Domestic Shorthair

Papaya is the name and winning your heart is her game! This 2-year-old, Domestic Shorthair is a mellow girl who wants nothing more than a warm place to doze the days away and a comfy lap to spend her nights. Papaya's favorite thing to do is stare out the window and watch the birds flutter about their business. Papaya is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is just $30. You can visit Papaya at the PetSmart near Parmer at 12901 N I-35.

Dog of the Week:
Mixed Breed

Meet pretty miss Pippy, our #DogoftheWeek! This 1-year-old mixed breed is full of puppy energy and would make the perfect match for an extra-active owner who will give her plenty of exercise and stimulation. Pippy absolutely loves other pups and would thrive in a home with another dog of her size and energy level. She’s had many successful playgroups at the shelter and in her foster home and is at her happiest when she’s part of a pack. Pippy loves to romp around outside, knows all her basic commands, and has the biggest smile and cutest ears! She’s spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all her vaccines, with an adoption fee of just $85. Although Pippy’s hanging out with one of our awesome fosters right now, you can meet Pippy by sending an email to!

Senior Spotlight:
Mixed Breed

Meet this week’s Senior Spotlight, Alvin. Alvin is a big boy weighing in at nearly seventy pounds, but his heart is even bigger. This 7-year-old, mixed breed loves to play and almost always has a toy with him just in case anyone is up for a game of fetch. Alvin has great manners, loves people of all ages, and would do well in a wide array of homes. He's microchipped, current on vaccinations and neutered. His adoption fee is just $85. Come meet Alvin!
