Former featured pets Mandy and Smokey have been adopted. This week, meet Prince, a 1-year-old domestic shorthair mix looking for his forever home.

This handsome 7-pound fellow is a very special cat who has been with the SPCA of Texas for more than two months. He arrived June 14 from the Tri-City Animal Shelter in hopes of finding a new family.

Prince has a medical condition called bilateral juvenile cataracts, which means he could develop glaucoma as he gets older. Because of this, he needs to go to a home with no children under 12.

He is an affectionate and spunky kitten looking for a family who can love him for the special boy he is. Prince has been neutered, FIV/FeLV tested (he’s negative) and microchipped, and he has received his age- appropriate vaccinations. He is also littler trained.

Because he's been waiting for his new family for more than 30 days, Prince is a VIP (very important pet), so he has a special lower adoption price. Come meet Prince (#116505) today at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.

Regular adoption fees are $95-$125 for puppies 0-6 months, $75-$95 for adult dogs 6 months or older, $50 for senior dogs 7 years or older, $50 for VIP dogs, $95 for kittens, $75 for adult cats, $50 for senior cats 7 years and older, and $50 for VIP cats.

The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs 6 months and older, initial heartworm preventative for dogs, feline leukemia test for cats 4 months and older, microchip, rabies tag, and free leash or cat carrier. Call 214-742-SPCA (7722) or visit the SPCA website for more information.
