San Marcos Pets of the Week

Dog of the Week

This week’s Dog of the Week is Churro, a boy as sweet as his name. This 3-year-old Staffordshire terrier/Labrador mix is hilariously quirky. He loves to roll on the grass and sprint around the yard in short bursts. He even makes tiny grunting noises as he runs. Churro is great on a leash, knows sit and is very well housetrained. But the best, most lovable trait about Churro is how obsessed he is with the tennis ball. Just play a game of fetch and he will entertain himself, galloping around with the ball in his mouth. Once he tires himself out, he prefers to lean on people when he wants attention. And with his fuzzy ears and adorable snout, he reminds the shelter staff of a teddy bear. Churro would be a great addition to any family looking for a low-maintenance, high-affection pet.

Cat of the Week

Jake might seem a little shy in the kennel, but that is because he is surprisingly mellow. All Jake needs is a lap to cuddle and couple of treats, and he’s a happy guy! At 2 years old, Jake is curious and friendly. He explores every inch of the room that he’s in before settling on the perfect spot to curl up and take a nap. Jake gets along with all sorts of people, and he’s friendly with other cats, so he would be a great fit for any family.

Churro and Jake are both available for adoption at the shelter and their adoption fee covers their neuter or spay, rabies vaccinations, kennel vaccinations, microchips and city licenses. To find out more about these pets or to meet them, visit the animal shelter online, contact them by phone at 512-805-2657, or visit them in person at 750 River Road.
