San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Pets of the Week

NF Pets of the week (22)

Dog of the Week: Frankenweenie (48807166)

Frankenweenie is the smartest dog you may ever meet! This boy knows how to give a high five, shake with BOTH paws, he knows sit, and he hops right in the car. He's polite when taking treats, walks right beside you on leash (dreamy!), and ignores other pups while on a walk. Frankenweenie is a very calm 3-year-old pup and an excellent cuddler! We think he'd enjoy the river too - he wanted to jump right in on his Dog's Day Out! We can't believe no one has scooped up this 50-pound dude yet. Come meet him today!

IGTV Pets of the Week (6)

Cat of the Week: Salem (48684490)

Salem is such a goofy girl! She's two years old, loves playing with anything that moves, and must get frequent head scratches. Salem has lots of energy, and her zoomies will have you giggling nonstop! Her fur is absolutely stunning and she's as smart as a whip. Beauty and brains? You just have to meet her!

 Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter. All ready-to-go pets are $10 until further notice and include spay/neuter, vet exam, vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of free pet health insurance. To meet our pets, please visit us in person at the shelter, open from noon – 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from noon – 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Or visit us online at to choose a pet, fill out an online adoption application, and then give us a call at 512.805.2650 or email to talk about it. If you’re interested in fostering a pet, email or visit to fill out a foster application.
