Rocko is a two-year-old Labrador mix who would be the perfect pooch for any family, big or small.

He loves to play fetch, go on walks, and is a loving pet. You can meet Rocko or any of the other dogs and cats available for adoption starting at noon Saturday at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center, 2400 Lone Star Drive, in West Dallas.

June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month, and the perfect time to give a forever home to one of the SPCA of Texas’ adorable and friendly cats and kittens. The SPCA of Texas currently has more than 135 cats and kittens awaiting a forever home.

In order to make space to save more incoming cats and kittens, the SPCA of Texas is offering 50 percent off adoption fees for all adult cats one-year-old or older throughout the month of June at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center and the Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center, 8411 Stacy Road, in McKinney. Both shelters are open seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m.

Cats make wonderful pets because they are calm, clean, easy-going, independent and affectionate. Cats are also very easily trainable and make perfect companions for apartment dwellers, children and seniors.

The SPCA of Texas asks potential cat owners to adopt a shelter cat and save a life.

Regular adoption prices for cats and kittens range from $50 to $95, which includes age-appropriate vaccinations (which can include rabies, feline rhinotracheitis, caleci and pan-leukopenia), deworming treatment, spay/neuter surgery, a rabies tag, a temporary pet tote made of heavy-duty cardboard and a microchip. Cats over 4 months of age are also given a feline Leukemia test.
