DFW Mag is partnering with several animal shelters to help find permanent families for local homeless pets. Check back every week to see adoptable pets at local shelters, and help them find homes by sharing this post on social media. Below, find Grand Prairie’s Prairie Paws Adoption Center’s animals of the week.
Grand Prairie Independent School District’s Superintendent kicked off the school year last week with a visit to the local animal shelter.
Visiting Prairie Paws adoption center, Susan Hull posed for pictures with the homeless pets — and offered to cover the adoption fee for one dog whose search for a home has lasted longer than most.
A four-year-old Australian Cattle Dog, Astro has been at Prairie Paws since June 1. It’s the longest time a pet in need of the home has remained at the shelter.
“Whether it’s one person, a couple or a family, he just wants someone to love him as much as he loves them,” a statement Prairie Paws Adoption Center said of Astro.
Playful and friendly, Astro can sit, shake, and “has the best smile in the Metroplex,” the statement also said. Whoever wants to take Astro home from Prairie Paws can do so at no charge, thanks to Hull.
