Every Wednesday at 9:10am, Gwen and Gunner feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin. 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 Cheeto!

Cheeto is a male 8mo old long hair orange tabby cat that has been neutered and is up to date on his vaccines.  Cheeto gets along well with other cats and loves to play!  He is a little shy with people he doesn't know but that is typical of cats in a shelter environment.  Cheeto has never met a wand toy or box he didn't like and he can't resist a sunny window to sit in once playtime is over.  Come meet Cheeto during our visiting hours of 1-4:30pm everyday except Thursdays!

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 Cheeto find his forever home. Or perhaps you're looking for a new furry friend who's a dog. 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.

The Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals can always use supplies as well so if you can, stop by and drop off a donation to help the staff care for the shelter animals til they can find their forever homes. Needed right now:

Cleaning supplies

Puppy Pee Pads

Blankets

Unopened / New Dog and Cat Food

Cat Litter

Items can be dropped off at the office at 4200 Fairgrounds Road in Midland during business hours. Thank You!
