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

NF Pets of the week

Dog of the Week: Elliot (49233150)

Elliot is a handsome 5-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier! He likes to spend his time cuddling with his human, playing with other dog buddies, and going on long walks. Elliot recently finished his heartworm treatment (YAY!), so he will need to take it easy and rest for a few more weeks. Although he would prefer to rest in the comfort of his new furever home! This smart boy is always ready to learn new tricks, and he's potty trained. If you're looking for a 55-pound cutie that will love you unconditionally, Elliot is your guy! 

Cat of the Week: Jade (49556352)

Jade is a stunning eight-pound cutie with bright yellow eyes! She enjoys roaming around the house looking for small places to take a nap in and finding the occasional hair tie to play with for a while. Jade is independent and mostly does her own thing, but she likes knowing her human is close by, as well. She is petite and slim, but no worries, she's not watching her weight. She'll eat treats like it's the main entrée! You have to meet this gorgeous 3-year-old girl!

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.
