Featured Pets

This week’s Galveston Island Humane Society’s pets of the week are Quinn and Patches.

Quinn is a sweetheart of a kitty, and she really doesn’t understand what brought the sudden changes that brought her to the shelter. She previously lived as an outdoor neighborhood kitty and was brought to our friends at the Animal Clinic, and although she is still confused about why she was not able to live her free life she is still a sweet and loving kitty who spends her days gazing out of the windows in our community cat adoption room. She is a soft brown striped tabby, with an ear notch to show she is spayed and enjoyed her life outdoors responsibly. She’s about a year old and while she is very mellow, she is ready to find a lap of her own.

Patches was also happy and content in her home until sudden changes brought her to our care. At a little over four years old, this brown and white medium-large pit bull mix has been slowly becoming more depressed about losing her home. She has a friendly outgoing disposition and she loves playing with children and other dogs. She has not been introduced to cats. Patches was very good in her home, she used the potty outside and was even easy to walk on her leash. She is a silly girl with lots of character, and she had a hobby of bug chasing. She also likes to pretend she is small enough to fit in your lap if you let her! Come see her beautiful smile for yourself!

Although we are temporarily closed to the public due to COVID-19, we are still scheduling adoptions and providing services to the community by appointments. Keep an eye on our website and social media for up to date operational information, as well as our available animals!

Adoptions include the spay or neuter surgery, a microchip, current vaccinations, and a month of pet insurance. These featured pets have an adoption sponsor allowing the adoption fee of $25 for this week only.
