Betty, Labrador retriever
Betty is a sweet female Labrador retriever dog being kept at SNIPSA Inc.
Betty gets along well with other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She has been vaccinated and spayed. No need to worry: She's already house-trained.
From Betty's current caretaker:
Betty would love to go on an adventure with you. She’ll walk right beside you and wag her tail as she meets new people. She loves walking around the River Walk and curiously follows the sound of the water. Betty knows “sit” and “shake” and this smart girl is wanting to learn more! Toys are her favorite and she’ll play fetch all day long.

Molly, Australian shepherd and Jack Russell terrier mix
Molly is a lovable female Australian shepherd and Jack Russell terrier mix in the care of SNIPSA Inc.
Molly gets along well with other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. SNIPSA Inc., however, recommends she be placed in a home without small children. She's been vaccinated and spayed.
Molly's current caretakers say:
Molly is very active, toy-driven and craves stimulation. With her stamina and outgoing personality, Molly is always ready for a fun adventure! This little fluff loves humans and would make a great family dog but would probably do better with a family without small children as this spunky girl, typical to her breeds, loves to herd.
