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

NF Pets of the week

Dogs of the Week:
Starfire (50600920)

Starfire is a delightful 4-year-old Staffordshire mix who has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite! When out in the play yards, Starfire loves lounging in the kiddie pool or playing fetch with a soccer ball. She loves to carry her toys around and is often spotted with one in her kennel. Starfire has interacted with children and done well. Starfire recently completed her heartworm treatment with the shelter and is ready to give all her love and goofy personality to a forever home. 

Rose (52008992)
Rose is a beautiful, scruffy 2-year-old Akbash mix. Fetch holds a special place in Rose’s heart – she loves playing any chance she gets! Rose is ready to live her best home life. She is potty trained, walks well on the leash, and has interacted with children and done well. Rose would love to join you on your outdoor adventures or to spend time perfecting her fetch game. If you’re looking for beauty and brains, come meet Rose today!
