Featured Pets

This week’s Galveston Island Humane Society’s pets of the week are Scooter and Big Red.

Meet Scooter, aka Scoots! He is an older, approximately 10 years young, Siamese mix cat. Scooter is laid back, chill, and enjoys spending his days lounging about. He came in off the streets and is now thriving with TLC. Scooter may need some vet visits in the not so near future to fix some broken teeth. For now, Scooter easily eats his hard food and it does not bother him. Scooter is currently in our community cat room waiting for you to come and take him home! Please consider Scooter as the next addition to your family.

Hello, meet Big Red! Big Red is a 2 year Terrier mix dog. Big Red came into the shelter after living with a lot of other little Chihuahuas. Unfortunately it was too much for his last owner to care for, and things just got out of hand. Prior to coming to the shelter, Big Red had never been on a leash. Big Red has made SO much progress with training here, but she still has some work to do. He is just about housebroken, so that’s half the battle. Big Red’s skin is still healing from going untreated for a while but within a couple more weeks she’ll be gorgeous. Please come in and meet her, and let her tell you in person why she’s the dog for you. Until then, Big Red will be waiting.
