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!

What a great past week, with four adoptions over the past two weekends. We have some new additions to our adoption program, but they aren't fully vetted and ready to be placed in new homes.
This week we would like to to a guy named Beau and he is promised to 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 email@example.com
