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 [UPDATED]

The 5 month old Boxer Lab mix named Ginger found everlasting love once and for all. Friday afternoon, Crystal who is from Eastland Texas, heard about Ginger and came to her rescue. According to Animal Shelter employees, strays are harder to get adopted because very little is known about them. Chalk one up for the good guys, or should I say good girls like Crystal. Thank you for caring enough to make a difference. More KEAN Critters need saving please drop by the Abilene Animal Shelter today and help save an innocent pets life.

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.

The first time the breed was recognized as a separate breed in the United States was in early 1945. Amazingly the Abilene Animal Shelter has one of these rare breed dogs, and he needs a ride to the Dallas Ft. Worth area Coonhound Rescue group.

The smartest pets and nearly all movie and television pets were rescued from shelters just like ours.

Can you help us save Sugar?

This young (two and a half year old) wire-hair terrier mix is very smart, obviously cute and she is extremely lovable (as you can see in the photos). From the minute I saw Sugar, I knew she was someones special friend. She looked right at me, as if she was trying to say, "Hey there, you look like you could use a friend and a hug." She just looks like she'd make an awesome loyal companion and here's how you can make this little critter your best friend.

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

This is Lucy, a  lab golden retriever mix that should have been named 'Lucky, because she's had a rough life and she's lucky she's made it this long. First off her left front leg was broken, and it healed wrong. The vet says "just leave it alone, it doesn't seem to hurt her she'll be just fine". Then some how her tail got chopped off and it looks as if she has been on her own for a long time. All that said, Lucy is a very sweet and extremely lovable pet. She really needs a animal lover to take her in, because in my opinion she's due to be a winner.
