[ARCHIVED] San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

NF Pets of the week (11)

Vulcan (46604132)Dog of the Week: Vulcan (46604132)

 Vulcan is the coolest Black-Mouth Cur/Retriever cross! If you're looking for an adventure buddy, this 2-year-old is your guy! Vulcan loves jumping up to get the rope for a good game of tug of war. After running around, Vulcan says it's necessary to cuddle and take a nap! He waits patiently to be leashed, LOVES rolling over for belly rubs, and has tons of fun while still being a medium-energy, easygoing dude. Don't miss this house-trained cutie; come check him out! 

Iris (47966230)Cat of the Week: Iris (47966230) 

Iris has such a unique look! Her right eye looks almost totally black, but don't worry, it doesn't bother her and she can still see - she just looks extra special! Iris enjoys catnip, her scratching post, and streeeeeetttttccchhhinnnggggg out on the couch! She is 2 years old, 8 pounds, and the perfect cuddler. She's here waiting for the purrrfect hooman to come adopt her. Will that hooman be you?
