Today I’d like to introduce you to a very special senior lady named Misty. Misty is vision impaired however it doesn’t appear to affect her fantastic outlook on life. Misty will need extensive dental work and be likely to only eat soft food. She has slight skin issues from neglect which will heal over time. She is a “diamond in the rough”. Misty displays signs of being house trained and is a super clean girl.

Misty loves company and adores people. She does well with the other dogs in our play yard. Misty is on the quiet side and enjoys her morning and afternoon naptimes. If you’re the type of person that tends to talk to yourself then Misty is your lady! Misty has lots of life left to live and lots of love to give!!!


For our next senior of the week, meet Mr. Homer. Homer is a 12 year old cat that ended up in our care after being with one owner his whole life. Homer has lived with other cats before and has been an indoor only cat. Although he physically resembles a lion, his personality is like a lamb. Homer may take a few minutes to warm up to you until comfortable. Homer is fond of ear scratches and chin rubs. Homer likes to use his bed as a sombrero by sleeping under it. Homer will need occasional brushing to keep his coat beautiful like his personality. Homer loves Eskimo kisses. To sum up in one word Homer is AWESOME!!!

Our shelter offers spay and neuter assistance to Galveston Island
