This energetic boy sustained trauma before arriving at the shelter; now he has some paralysis.


One of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society is Cain, a two-year-old male Pit/Boxer mix.

“He is an energetic, silly boy that loves attention,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “He is a little shy with new people, but warms up quickly.

“He is good on a leash and likes riding in a car.”

Before arriving at the shelter, Cain sustained some type of trauma that fractured his jaw, broke three of his canines and caused partial paralysis.

“His tongue hangs out, but it doesn't stop him from eating, but he does make quite a mess when drinking,” Serena said.

Cain has shown some aggression toward other dogs so a meet-and-greet with adoptive families is encouraged.

Cain is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, heart worm negative and on prevention.

He has been at the shelter since February.


Noggin is a three-year-old male domestic shorthair.

“He is a super friendly, lovable boy,” Serena said. “He loves people and wants to be around them all the time.”

He also loves other pets and a cozy bed to sleep in.

Noggin would do best as an inside-only cat and is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and litterbox trained.
