San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

Pets of the Week - January 13, 2022.

Gobber (48475465)Dog of the Week: Gobber (48475465)

Gobber is super cuddly, very energetic, is as smart as a whip, and loves food! This 3-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd mix needs an adopter with a lot of patience and the time to properly train him. Since he has such high energy, going on daily walks or playing fetch will get him ready to relax at the end of the day. This goofy guy gets very excited when he plays and can get mouthy, but with time, he can learn the dos and don’ts of playtime. Gobber spent a couple of months in foster and got better about walking on leash, and he learned how to sit and shake! Come meet Gobber and see his potential for yourself!


Poppy (49299553)Cat of the Week: Poppy (49299553)

Poppy is 13 years young and very stunning. She is a very loving lady that just wants to be admired and adored by her human. She loves getting lots of pets, taking naps in the sun, and eating soft food. If you're looking for a needy cat that will follow you wherever you go and is very talkative, then Poppy is the gal for you! This sweetheart thinks it's always a good time to cuddle. Poppy can't wait to be your best friend. Adopt her today; she's more than ready to be spoiled!

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. All ready-to-go pets (meaning cats and dogs that have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped) are $10 until further notice and include spay/neuter, vet exam, vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of free pet health insurance. 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. Or visit us online at to choose a pet, fill out an online adoption application, and then give us a call at 512.805.2650 or email to talk about it. If you’re interested in fostering a pet, email or visit to fill out a foster application.
