SPCA East Texas: Alfalfa, Darla & Spanky

Pet of the Week

Clear the Shelters: August 23 – September 19, 2021

Kat Cortelyou, Director of Operations of the SPCA of East Texas joined us on East Texas Live’s Pet of the Week with Alfalfa is an 8 week old Heeler mix. He and his brother, Spanky and sister, Darla were dumped out on a property during rainstorms. They were wormy and had ringworm. The SPCA of East Texas treated them and got them all cleaned up and ready to go. We are now looking for foster homes for these sweet pups so that they can learn their puppy manners and get ready to be adopted.

Clear the Shelters is a national campaign that encourages people to adopt from their local shelters in an effort to “clear the shelters.” The campaign receives national and local coverage on NBC and each year over 100,000 animals are adopted from shelters and rescues that participate in our initiative. This year’s month-long event is August 23rd – September 19th. We hope that you can support our East Texas shelters and rescues.

KETK has partnered with these East Texas shelters and rescues:

More than 551,000 pets have found their forever homes since 2015.
