When our Rescue and Investigations team found Rocko, he was in rough shape. The one-year-old Pit Bull mix weighed only 37 pounds and wasn’t receiving the proper love and care that he needed. Fortunately, a few weeks on a proper diet and some TLC brought Rocko back to the healthy, energetic boy that he was meant to be. It wasn’t long before Rocko, now Mosby, locked eyes with his new family, and the rest is history.

“I don’t think I can accurately put into words how amazing Mosby is,” his new mom, Ashley said. “My boyfriend and I fell in love with him within the first 30 seconds of meeting him, and those feelings have only grown over the last several weeks.”

Today, Mosby is living the good life with his new forever family. Ashley said that Mosby is smart, kind and has the sweetest heart. “Both my boyfriend and I have had dogs growing up, and also during our adult lives, and we both agree that Mosby is one of the most special dogs either of us have ever owned,” she said.

Ashley said that Mosby made such an impact on her family that they decided to adopt a second Pit Bull, who was on the euthanasia list at another shelter (note: the SPCA of Texas does not euthanize animals for time or space).

“Mosby and his brother, Stinson were fast friends and have bonded deeply,” she said. “Thank you so much for saving this amazing guy. Our lives will forever be changed because of him.”


“Jose loves going on walks with Benny and he walks fast!  Lots of pep in his step for a 12 year old!  He watches me in the kitchen from the couch, naps and lounges around outside in the sun.  He seems very happy and I'm so glad we have him!  Thank you for taking care of him there and putting out the word about him!”




“We are so blessed to have Roxie! We've all had a great weekend! And looking forward to the future! She's got a small dose of how her life will now be in just these 2 short days! We took her to the TBall field on Saturday & she was a complete ANGEL! Although we're pretty partial to her, it didn't go unnoticed by all the other players, parents & workers!  Camping trip coming up soon!”




“Betsy says hello and asked that I send you the attached photos so you and your staff can see how she has grown into a wonderful young lady cat! Betsy loves to sleep and continues to be thrilled by the wand toys that she just cannot figure out but loves to play with! She also really likes her new cat house (see picture) and uses it frequently as a cubby hole in which to rest. She has quite a tummy on her and as a result, we have started to watch her food levels with hopes to lose maybe a pound or a 1 1/2 pounds!

Once again, Betsy sends her love and thanks to you and your staff for loving her and giving her the opportunity to join my home - Betsy and I met 2 years ago in February 2011! One of the best days of our lives!”

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
