DPA Cat of the Month – September: Meet MINA!

DPA Cat of the Month – September: Meet MINA!

Her full name is Miss Mina Murray, but you needn’t be so formal. Just call her Mina!  She’s a cat’s cat who won’t turn down a chance to play with other felines, has a soft heart for kittens and a whole lotta love to offer her human family, as well.   Mina is a young Domestic Shorthair/Mixed with tuxedo markings and gold eyes.  She was part of a feral colony of cats and was rescued by DPA when she was a small kitten. Because she was too young to be returned to the colony, she was accepted into our foster program.   Mina is a broad-minded feline who enjoys being a part of her peer group and even embraces the companionship of canines of all sizes!  Her ability to make friends wherever she goes has made her a popular playmate who likes to be near humans, too, just not necessarily in their laps.  She will greet you by rubbing against your legs, follows you around the house and will talk to you with a very cute, tiny meow when you get her dinner. The way to Mina’s heart is threefold: socializing with her cat and dog friends, playing with her fishing pole toy (she comes running when she sees you with it in your hand) and eating savory, meat-flavored cat treats.  If you want to be entertained, this could be your cat. Mina would do best with another cat to play with and she needs some patience in order to overcome a bit of shyness and develop some confidence.  We know that she will give back much more than...

DPA’s Cats of the Month – July: Meet LIP & FI

About Lip Here is a tenacious young cat with a lot of love to give.  She may have been blown off course but she’s made it clear to everyone around her that she is weathering the storm just fine.  Meet Lip, a sleek, black-coated Domestic Short Hair Mix with emerald green eyes and a friendly disposition! This little kitty  is a survivor of the Houston hurricane.  When the storm cut its path through the city,  Lip was left without a home or family and that’s when DPA stepped in.  She’s currently staying with a great DPA foster (and another cute, young cat named Fiona) while patiently waiting for a permanent home.   This cutie loves to play and craves lots of affection and attention.  She likes to be petted and scratched and wants nothing more than to be in a family where she can play and find a cozy place to curl up and sleep.  Lip likes other cats and can sometimes tolerate dogs. She loves kids and would do best in a home with some young people to play with her and give her lots of love.   She’s litter box-trained, healthy and is described by her foster mom as a very smart cat.  We think she weathered the storm to be some fortunate family’s special companion! Do you think the winds of fate could be bringing Fiona to your doorstep?  Apply to adopt her today! Now through July 31 her adoption fee is 50% off.  About Fi Described as a beautiful, young cat who loves kids and likes to play, this charming little Domestic Short Hair Mix feline...
DPA’s Dog of the Month — July: Meet Texas Rose

DPA’s Dog of the Month — July: Meet Texas Rose

A dog who wants nothing more than to follow you from room to room, shower you with cuddly affection and pause to chase a butterfly–meet Texas Rose, a young male pup with a brown coat and honey-colored eyes who is looking for a forever home! This sturdy pup is a quiet dog who is somewhat shy but absolutely loves his people and stuffed animals.  If you are looking for a companion who will stick to you like glue, here’s the dog. He lives to cuddle and is very loyal to his family. Texas Rose prefers a quiet home free of loud sounds like fireworks, vacuum cleaners and squeaky toys.  He will chase anything that moves (so squirrels should be warned ahead of time). He’s an obedient and cooperative dog who crates well, even when people are around.   Because he is a bit shy, he will need a patient owner who can help him gradually adjust to different surroundings.  A little love will go a long way, though and we think you will be rewarded with many happy days with one special pup.   Do you think you could make Texas Rose your new bestie?  Apply to adopt him today! Now through July 31 his adoption fee is 50%...
