Every Wednesday we feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin from Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Aurora!

Have you been dreaming of a sweet playful puppy who will also snuggle with you?  Little Aurora checks all the boxes!  She was brought to the Sanctuary with her Mama and her five brothers and sisters back in September.  The entire litter is well socialized and gets along great with people and other dogs.  Aurora especially likes to play with the other dogs in the playgroup and enjoys chew toys as well.  This 18 week old Chihuahua mix puppy has been spayed and is up to date on all of her shots.  She would be a perfect family dog but has no special requirements other than someone to give her lots of love.  If she sounds like the pup you have been looking for, please come see her at Lone Star Sanctuary For Animals, 4200 Fairgrounds Road in Midland during visiting hours of 1-4:30 pm!  She can't wait to meet you!

And if for some reason you're not looking for a pet right now--please click SHARE and post this to your social media so we can help Aurora find her forever home. Or perhaps you're looking for a different new furry friend. There are so many fur babies who would love to meet you so stop by and pay them a visit! There are plenty of dogs and cats to choose from who would love to be your next family member.
