Houston Has a Problem, He Needs a Home
Houston is available at the Douglas County Animal Shelter.
By Pat Hopper
Houston is an orange and white male Tabby with large gold eyes. His tail is white with orange circular stripes and he has white hightop back feet. He has a huge heart filled with love to give his companion for life. He was held in my arms for 15 minutes and kept looking at me, hoping to be picked up again. He came into the shelter as a stray with a skinned nose on Sept. 25 and received the FVRCP during intake.
Cat ID#: 6071
Hours of operation for the Douglas County Animal Shelter are: Monday closed; Tuesday noon to 7 p.m.; Wednesday noon to 5 p.m.; Thursday noon to 7 p.m.; Friday noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday 2 to 5 p.m.
Pet listings are updated frequently. However, animals featured may be adopted and that, after all, is the goal. If the pet you are interested in has been adopted, please consider giving another of the many available pets an opportunity to be your forever friend and allow them to show you just how special they are.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats is $25, and there is a $10 microchip fee. $35 for the opportunity to make a friend for life and to give a furkid a forever home is a small price to pay.
All dogs and cats presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough and distemper and all pets adopted from the shelter are required to have their rabies shots and be spayed or neutered within 30 days of adoption, unless they are kittens or puppies.
The Douglas County Animal Shelter phone: 770-942-5961. If the line is busy, please keep trying as there is often limited staff to answer calls. However, messages left will be returned as time permits. To learn about other animals available for adoption at Douglas County Animal Control, view their PetFinder listings.
