Senior pets are calm, quiet, and would rather take a nap with you than snack on your sneakers. Most have already been trained and house-broken, too, making them the perfect low-maintenance companions. Seniors are the hardest group of animals to adopt out, so they are forced to spend their golden years stuck in a kennel, rather than cozied up on a rug by your feet, which is all that they really want. Most critters that live to be elderly do so because they are well taken care of, meaning they are used to love and care; they don't understand why they are at the shelter, and they want nothing more than to be loved by you.

Name: Stevie

Sex: Male

Age: 7 years

Breed: Lab mix


Stevie is a gentle giant. He is a loyal, friendly boy who needs a lot of room to run--he may be a senior, but he has a youthful spirit. Due to being passed around from home-to-home so frequently, he has developed separation anxiety, so he will need to go to someone who is home a lot, and who understands that he has felt abandoned in the past. He is full of life and love, and his only desire is to be with you.

Available Seniors

According to studies, pets are medicine. Holding a pet reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and combats depression. But puppies and kittens are hard work--they require round-the-clock observation, constant interaction, and must go to the bathroom every 2-3 hours. And that's not even mentioning their ENERGY--those little powerhouses seem to never sleep, and leave chewed shoes and clawed curtains in their wake. Sounds exhausting, right? Thankfully, there's a solution--cue "Golden Oldies"!

Available Seniors

Golden Oldies is a program that pairs retirees with seniors. If you are 55 or older and you adopt a senior animal (any cat or dog over 7), the adoption fee is only $25.

Name: Momma

Sex: Female

Age: 7 years

Breed: Lab Mix


Momma was found abandoned in the woods with 9 little puppies. She was scared at first, and it took a while to earn her owner's trust. Momma is a sweet, cuddly girl, but she does get jealous of other dogs being with her master, so it would be best for her to go to a single-dog family. She minds very well and behaves in the house, and she is potty-trained and loves to snuggle. She is currently at the home of a foster, so please call the shelter at (936) 327-7722 to set up a time to meet her.

Name: Little Bill

Sex: Male

Age: 7 years

Breed: Dachshund/Terrier mix


Little Bill is quite a character! He loves attention, but he HATES sharing his humans--he will need to go to a single-dog family. He is house-trained and quiet--except when he needs to go "make business", then he'll politely ask for your attention. He was brought to us after his owner passed away, and his greatest desire is to be in a home of his own again. 

Name: Scrappy

Sex: Male

Age: 7 years

Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund mix


This precious boy was surrendered after his owner died. He has known no home but the one he shared with his beloved master, so now he feels misplaced and overwhelmed at the shelter. Please give this handsome boy the stable, loving home that he so deserves!

Helping those who can't help themselves.

Name: Carson

Sex: Male

Age: 7 years

Breed: Lab/Hound mix


Carson was found as a stray back in May. While the noise and crowding of the shelter sometimes stresses him out, he is a friendly, sweet boy who yearns to run around and give love. He misses having a home of his own, and eagerly awaits the day when he will be picked out by a loving family, and given a place to call his again.
