This week’s Galveston County Animal Resource Center pets of the week are Joy and Astro.

Joy (A010666) is a true joy — sweet and beautiful. She is a domestic short hair with a striking black on tan classic tabby coat trimmed with white paws, chin and chest. Joy’s beautiful eyes are bright hazel. She is a friendly, outgoing kitty that loves attention. Come meet this wonderful young adult, fall in love and bring some joy into your life.

Astro (A011336) is a young male boxer mix whose lively playfulness ensures you will never have a dull moment in his presence. Astro’s infectious personality is sure to bring a smile to your face as he greets you, bouncing joyfully as he wags his nub tail fiercely in excitement. Astro would be a wonderful companion to someone with an active lifestyle.
