A Pair of Dachshunds are Needing a Loving Family Fast – KEAN Critter [UPDATED]

UPDATED: June 26, 2013 8:00am
The good news is, these two awesome dachshunds will live. However, they are still in need of a home, Abilene Animal Control Director Aaron Vannoy called to tell me that "the Taylor-Jones Humane Society rescued both dogs to keep them from being put down. They did ask that I tell folks where these two dachshunds went in the event someone wants to adopt them." The Taylor-Jones Humane Society at 2301 North 3rd Street is a no-kill shelter and will care for the two dachshunds until a home is found.

The Three Stooges Are Three Adorable Labs Looking for Loving Homes – KEAN Critter

This weeks KEAN Critters, I affectionately call them the "Three Stooges." As for their names, let's say they are Moe, Larry, and Curly. They're a 9-month old Chocolate Lab, a two-year-old Yellow Lab and finally a two-year-old Black Lab. Each one has it's own unique personality. The Chocolate Lab was turned in because he chases chickens. To which I said "of course he chases chickens, that's because he's a bird dogs and that's what bird dogs do." The fact still remains these three are extremely lovable. All three can be found at the Abilene Animal Control Shelter.

Krista a Black and White Tabby is the Sweetest Most Lovable Cat in Abilene – KEAN Critters

Krista is an black and white four year old Tabby cat that was turned in by her owner. Abilene Animal Control Shelter employees tell me that Krista is a victim of domestic abuse. It seems that her owner (to save her own life) moved into the NOAH Project and then, she begged animal shelter officers to help find "really good homes" for her two pets. The family's dog was adopted Saturday. Now only Krista the cat remains, sad and alone at the animal shelter looking for a safer environment to call home.

Duke, the Border Collie Mix, Has Been Adopted – KEAN Critters [UPDATED]

Updated: April 2nd 1:30pm

Duke, the sweet, petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, got lucky. Since Duke was found roaming the street in front of the Abilene Animal Shelter, he was considered a stray. Strays are usually scheduled to be put to death after a customary waiting period. That time for Duke had run out. Luckily, a Border Collie rescue group from Conroe, Texas stepped forward and agreed to take Duke in at a foster home. Duke will live with Deborah, a Border Collie Rescue Volunteer, until a permanent home is found for Duke.

Ginger the Most Lovable Boxer Lab Mix Needs a Home Right Away – KEAN Critters

This is Ginger, the most lovable 5 month old Boxer Lab mix that is looking for love. She was found roaming the streets of Abilene around the 3200 block of North First Street when she was picked up by the Abilene Animal Shelter. Because Ginger is a stray, she will need to find a home right away before her time runs out this weekend. I spent some time with Ginger and discovered she loves to sit in your lap and just chill out, which is a good thing that she only weighs 25 pounds. She is very well behaved for a 5 month old.

Bella the Lovable Lab Mix Needs a Special Home in Abilene – KEAN Critters

This is Bella, a  yellow-lab mix that should have been named 'Lucky, because she's had a rough go at life. She is an owner turn in, only because her previous owner didn't know how to train her to keep from jumping up on them whenever they were outside with her. That is the only reason Bella was surrendered to the Abilene Animal Shelter, where her time has run out. This is her last chance as you'll see by the fact that she is also discounted to only $20. While other dogs go for $70 and more. Please go check Bella out because these are her last few days of life, unless you save her.
