‘She seems to be giving up.’ Longest female resident at animal shelter is becoming depressed.


This week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society include Lacey, a three-year-old Catahoula/Cur mix.

“She is our longest female resident,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “She has been at the shelter since October 2020. She is great with kids and good on a leash. She likes riding in cars and is house and crate trained.”

Lacey gets along with other dogs, but not cats, and is described as a bit of a “couch potato.”

She is spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

“Lacey has been showing signs of depression and seems to be giving up on finding a home,” Serena said.


Daxter is a six-month-old female domestic shorthair cat also looking for a new home.

“She is super sweet and very playful,” Serena said.

Daxter is litter box trained and microchipped.

You can meet Lacey, Daxter and the other 80 dogs and 79 cats at the animal shelter from 2-6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday.
