Waco 100’s Pet of the Week is Jacie. Jacie is a delightful, lovable little lady. She has a sweet, fun personality, and she adores everyone she meets. But Jacie’s had enough of living the shelter life, and she’s ready for her family to adopt her.
This calm girl is attentive, cooperative, and she walks well on a leash. She’s very young, still considered a puppy, yet she’s extremely agreeable. She’s treat motivated, and she’ll happily do as you request if you’re willing to spend time teaching her.
With all these wonderful attributes, it’s a puzzle why someone hasn’t scooped this wonderful pup up. She’s been at the shelter since 5/14/18, and she is currently sitting on the top spot of the urgent list.
Jacie is a female, year old, lab/terrier mix. Her adoption fee has been sponsored, which means she is free to adopt to an approved adopter.
Speaking of free adoptions, The Humane Society of Central Texas and the Waco shelter just participated in the national Clear the Shelter event. One hundred of Waco’s homeless dogs and cats found their forever homes this past weekend. The staff expresses their sincere gratitude to those who made the trip to save a life.
Sadly, most of the longest residents, like Jacie were passed over and are still waiting for their new families. What’s wrong with these long timers? Absolutely nothing. Why do they keep getting overlooked? Because every dog waiting for a home is wonderful. Choices are endless, and decisions are difficult.
Unfortunately, even with all the adoptions this past weekend, kennel space continues to be limited. A cruelty seizure occurred last week, and intake numbers (owner surrenders and strays) are at an all time high. Plus, many of the adopted dogs cannot leave the shelter premises until they are spayed or neutered and are waiting for their surgeries.
As kennels remain full, lives like Jacie’s are in jeopardy. Especially the top ten urgents. Go to the shelter this week and consider making one of these dogs a part of your family. All ten are free to adopt to an approved adopter.
