Former featured pets Maggie and Cinderella are still available for adoption. This week meet Luna, a 1-year-old domestic shorthair mix. She is the longest residing resident at the SPCA of Texas, at eight months.

Golden-eyed Luna is a pretty laid-back kitty who enjoys spending her days lounging in a comfy bed, playing with toys and looking out the window. She is a sweetheart who loves a good head and chin scratch; she will even roll over on her back and make biscuits to show you how happy she is.

Also known as Lunesta, she was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on February 20 because she did not get along with the other animals in her previous home. Luna needs to be the only pet in the home so she can be your No. 1 girl. She is an independent cat who prefers a quieter home, preferably without children under the age of 12.

Luna is also a VIP (very important pet) because she’s been waiting for her new, loving family for more than 30 days, so she has a special lower adoption price. She has been spayed, FIV/FeLV tested (she’s negative) and microchipped, and she has received her age- appropriate vaccinations. Plus she is litter box trained.

Come meet Luna (#111855) 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.
