This sweet cat was rescued during an animal cruelty investigation. Now she needs a loving home.

Trixie, a four-to five-year-old female domestic shorthair, is one of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society.

“She was seized during a cruelty investigation and is now available for adoption,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “She needs a little time to get comfortable with new people, but will always greet you at the door of her kennel.

“Once she settles in and is comfortable with you, she really enjoys attention.”

Trixie struggled with her litterbox for the first few days she was at the shelter, so her adoptive family might want to keep her in a small area for a few days.

Trixie arrived at the shelter in June and is spayed, fully vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.


Bear is a five-year-old male Kelpie mix.

“He is a high-energy breed,” Serena said. “He was adopted from us as a puppy, then ended up in a San Marcos shelter and came back to us in March.”

Bear is dog friendly, but a meet and greet is always recommended for families with other dogs.

“When he gets excited, he will jump about two feet straight up in the air!” Serena said.

Bear is neutered, partially vaccinated (needs rabies), microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention

If you would like to meet Trixie, Bear or the other 79 dogs or 76 cats that need homes, stop by the animal shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
