SPCA of Texas Pets of the Week: Ernie and Olivia

Ernie 113535CS (1)

Meet Ernie, the most adorable, loving, 1-year-old Boxer mix that you will ever meet.  Ernie is a medium sized guy, weighing in at 42 pounds-a perfect fit for just about any loving family!  He has the most gorgeous red and white coat, warm golden eyes, and cute floppy ears.  Ernie was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on April 4 so that he could find his forever home. He is looking for a home where his days will be filled with tasty jerky treats, fun toys, warm beds, and love!  

Did you know that you can bring your current, vaccinated pets to the shelter to meet potential pets?  Ernie is quite the social butterfly and would love to have a doggie playmate to spend his time with while you are out and about.  If you were thinking about being a single-dog home, he also gets along great with children.  He loves to play fetch and chase, so he and his playmates will have plenty of fun.  He is super-sweet and loves to snuggle.  He is ready to give a hug to every person he meets and will wiggle his way into your lap and prepare for his well-deserved belly rub!  He is a little shy, so it may take him a little while to relax and warm-up to you.  Once he has gotten to know you, he will give you a gentle kiss to let you know he is ready to play. Ernie is also a VIP (Very Important Pet) so he has a lower adoption fee! Would Ernie be the perfect addition to your family? Come and meet him today! #113535


Meet Olivia, a gorgeous 9-year-young, Domestic Shorthair mix. She has a beautiful brown tabby coat, lovely green eyes, and a cute little kinked tail. Olivia was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on April 9 so that I could find her forever home. She can be a shy girl, but once she gets to know you- she is as sweet as can b. Olivia loves to have her head and chin scratched. Though she loves people and other cats, she would prefer a home without dogs. Olivia enjoys spending her days lounging in the sun, relaxing in a bed, or sometimes playing hide and seek under blankets.

Olivia is declawed on her front feet, so she has to be an indoor cat for her own protection. She is a sweet heart who would love to have a quieter home where she can spend her days cuddling with you or snuggling into a comfy bed. Olivia has been spayed, FIV/FeLV tested (She is negative), micro-chipped, received her age- appropriate vaccinations, and she is litter box trained. Olivia is also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because she has been waiting for her new, loving family for more than 30 days, and she has a lower special adoption price. Would Olivia be the perfect addition to your family? Come and Meet her today. #14550
