Previous featured pets Speedy and Luna are still available for adoption. This week meet Scrappy, a 6-month-old Labrador/pit bull mix.

This 19-pound pup loves to run. She is quite the athlete, and she enjoys going for walks and romping through the grass. This sweetheart also loves belly rubs and cuddling.

Scrappy came to the SPCA of Texas August 30 because her previous home and yard were too small for a growing puppy. She has been spayed, microchipped and dewormed, and she has received her age-appropriate vaccinations.

Scrappy 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. Come meet Scrappy (#120853) 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.
