Meet Apollo - SPCA of Texas
Meet Apollo, a 2½-year-old, male Mixed Breed dog weighing 43-pounds. He’s a sweet, shy guy looking for a home of his very own. He came to the SPCA of Texas from a cruelty case in 2019. Due to his past, he can be fearful and shy in new situations but warms up quickly. Once he gets to know you, he is just SO excited to see you! In his foster home, he was friendly and well behaved around visitors- everyone loved his hilarious facial expressions! He seems to be completely house trained, and left alone uncrated, he didn't make any messes or tear anything up. He does really well on walks and rides well in the car, too. He would do best in a home as the only dog. If you’re looking for a loving boy to spend time with, he’s the one for you! Apollo has been neutered, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. In an effort to reduce the potential for COVID-19 to spread to more people via gatherings of people and protect the health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff and volunteers, as well as our community, the SPCA of Texas is closing our shelters to the public through at least Sunday, April 5. We will continue to offer adoptions on an appointment basis, as we continue to have many wonderful animals in need of new homes. Customers are allowed to meet up to three animals per appointment. Please visit spca.org/dogadopt to make an appointment to meet a dog or spca.org/catadopt to make an appointment to meet a cat. Appointment hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m daily. Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older. Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older, initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative, a microchip, 30 days of PetHealth Insurance provided by PetHealth, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, a rabies tag and a free leash.
