San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

NF Pets of the week (19)

Dog of the Week: Bon Bon (48262821)

Brace yourself to fall in love! Bon Bon is a 7-year-old Red Australian Cattle Dog/Moutain Cur mix. He's a mellow senior looking for his retirement home. Bon Bon had a rough life before coming to SMRAS, but he doesn't let it bring him down! This sweet boy is potty-trained, loves getting head scratches, and playing with squeaky toys! He's not a fetch kind of dog, he likes a calm environment where he can follow his human everywhere they go and cozy up to bask in the sun while enjoying a pig ear chew. Bon Bon would do good in a home with another low-energy dog like himself. He has boundaries and doesn't like when they're crossed, but don't we all! Bon Bon is blind in his right eye but has no problem getting around. Will you open your home and heart to his little senior man? 

IGTV Pets of the Week (2)Cat of the Week: Eclipse (48854428)

Eclipse (48854428) is the sweetest medium-haired cat. If you're a bit on the lazy side, this 7-pound boy would be perfect in your home! He loves to lay around and make biscuits. Even though that's a very important job, he does like to take breaks to play with his toys. Eclipse enjoys the company of other cats and wouldn't mind having a sibling around to take naps with. This 1-year-old cuddle bug will fill your life with so much serotonin. Come adopt Eclipse today! 

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. All ready-to-go pets are $10 until October 23, 2021, and include spay/neuter, vet exam, vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of free pet health insurance.
