San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

NF Pets of the week (17)

Louis (46845715)Dog of the Week: Louis (46845715) 

Louis (46845715) has been at SMRAS since March 5, 2021. He's the cutest gray hippo of a dog at 67 pounds! He loves to play in water, play fetch with his favorite tennis ball, and cuddling with his human. Louis has had negative experiences with other dogs, so it would be beneficial if he went to a home without any other animals. Since Louis is eight years old, he's looking for a good home to retire in where he can receive so much love and attention. Will you open your home to this sweet boy? Come adopt Louis today and give him a second chance!

Maui (48748507)Cat of the Week: Maui (48748507)

Maui (48748507) is an easy-going six-year-old boy with the most intriguing yellow eyes. He absolutely loves head scratches and pets! In a purrfect world, Maui would be quite content if his human did nothing all day but cuddled him. He prefers to have his four paws stay securely on the ground but doesn't mind being held occasionally. Maui is 14 pounds, so you can safely assume he LOVES food and treats. This six-year-old boy can't wait to be loved by you! Come meet him today! 

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. To meet our pets, please visit us in person at the shelter, open from noon – 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from noon – 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
