Last month, the city started featuring a pet of the week, a dog they deemed friendly and adoptable, to raise community awareness about dogs picked up by animal control. Dogs can be adopted free, but the new pet owners must show proof that they’ve taken care of vaccines and spaying/neutering within 30 days.
Rusty was a friendly 6-month-old lab and the first featured pet of the week. City Manager Martin Garza said the city received 50 calls on the puppy, but nobody would commit to adoption.
