Meet Shy, a beautiful 2-year-old, 6-pound Domestic Short Hair mix who is ready to find a loving family to call her own. She has a lovely brown tabby coat with white and absolutely gorgeous green eyes! Just like her name, Shy is a quiet one when you first meet her, but once she gets to know you- she is as sweet as can be! She was transferred to the SPCA of Texas on September 24th from Tri-City Animal Shelter so that she can find her forever home. She is a laid-back lady who enjoys spending her days lounging in a comfy bed, napping, and gazing out the window. You’re more than welcome to join her in any of those activities! Shy is a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because she’s been waiting for her new, loving family for more than 30 days, and she has a special lower adoption price! She has been spayed, FeLV/FIV tested (negative), micro-chipped, and received her age-appropriate vaccination. Don’t wait another second to add plenty of love, laughter, cuddles, and purrs to your life. Come and meet Shy today! #121931

The SPCA of Texas Offers Pet Safety Tips for Inclement Weather
(DALLAS, TX/McKINNEY, TX); December 5, 2013—As severe winter weather threatens the Metroplex, the SPCA of Texas reminds pet owners to protect their pets from the cold. The SPCA of Texas does not encourage people to leave their pets outside full time, but urges pet owners who do keep their pets outdoors to follow these guidelines:
The SPCA of Texas is the leading animal welfare agency in North Texas. The non-profit organization operates two shelters and three spay/neuter clinics located in Dallas and McKinney, and maintains a team of five animal cruelty investigators to respond to thousands of calls in eight North Texas counties. Moreover, the SPCA of Texas serves as an active resource center for an array of services that bring people and animals together to enrich each others’ lives. The SPCA of Texas is not affiliated with any other entity and does not receive general operating funds from the City of Dallas, State of Texas, federal government or any other humane organization. The SPCA of Texas is dedicated to providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
