Townsquare Pet Patrol
From shelters to foster and adoption groups, there are many different options when you are looking to add a new four-legged member to your family. Every week Townsquare’s Pet Patrol, brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital, highlights adoptable pets from across the Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas areas, hoping to find homes for shelter pets from throughout the region.
This week we are highlighting animals from 12 shelters, and hope to add more as momentum builds for this project. We will also be featuring information on upcoming events at our local shelters, as well as bringing you information on upcoming fund raising activities for these organization.
The Pet Patrol is brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital. We would also like to thank Just 4 K9s and Kitty 2, your home for grooming supplies, as well as all of your pets’ needs, from food to beds to toys. Please remember to spay and neuter, and of course to adopt, not shop!

We have had some really great adoptions this past weekend, it’s always nice to see our rescues find their new homes. This week we would like to add our newest addition to that list. His name if Beau and he will steal anyone’s heart the moment they see him…
He gets along with well with the other dogs in his foster home. He appears to be about a 2 year old Maltipoo, has been neutered, current on his vaccinations, and he tested negative for heartworms. Beau is a little shy at first, but will eventually open up and show that he is actually a lap dog, who enjoys car rides and cuddling at night.
Beau should make a great family pet. For more information about adopting this handsome guy, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Our pet of the month this month is Bevo, an approximately 4 year-old front de-clawed, Siamese/Snowshoe mix. He is not very comfortable at the shelter, so they are eagerly looking for his fur-ever home.
Bevo is more of an adult cat than a child’s cat but he would be fine with older children. He is a big boy, but loves to be loved and loves to play. He does nip (not hard) to let you know when he is done with things like rubs and love as well as if you are late with dinner.
Please call and ask about Bevo, we have him placed in a foster home until adoption. We can set up a time for you to see him if you like. Someone give this baby a chance to love you. He is super sweet and his adoption is sponsored this month to an approved home. You can reach us by phone at 940-552-5373 or by email at email@example.com.
