They are already off to a good start today with two adoptions.  Cinnamon (L) and Jemma Rose (R) now have forever homes. Just see how adopting a dog can change their lives and your too.

We adopted Dos in January 2021. My son’s mother and stepfather surrendered her and 6 of her puppies to the pound in Port Lavaca. The Humane Society of Port Lavaca rescued her, and her puppies, and she was sent to the Dorothy O’Connor Pet Adoption Center. Fortunately, I was able to locate Dos in Victoria, and my wife and I drove down to adopted her. We are so happy to have her back in our family and my son loves spending time with her on his weekend visits. Thank you again for allowing us to adopt her. She brightens our days/nights when she climbs into bed for the evening. ❤

I have had Glitter since Sept. 8th, 2011. It’s now almost 2021 and I love her more each day. She has gone to work with me every day at the University of Missouri’s Veterinary Teaching hospital. I can’t imagine a world or day without her. I’m so glad and blessed she’s been in my life for almost 10 years now.

Now here is your chance to see what fur baby's that you can take home today. A big thank you to Dorothy O'Connor Pet Adoption Agency for the permission to use their photos.
