Rusty the lovable little dog we wrote about a few days ago, is now enjoying life with his new family. Many thanks to Maria Whittamore of Abilene who's the proud owner of  Rusty the wire-hair terrier mix dog. Every week we'll blog about a dog, cat, kitten or puppy who's time has run out at the Abilene Animal Control Shelter (a.k.a. the dog pound), we'll call them "KEAN Critters".

The fact still remains, we have too many animals that are in need of a home right here in West Texas. You'll also be able to see the KEAN Critters right here. If you're interested in adopting a cute, lovable critter, check out the Abilene Animal shelter's website, that is updated daily.
