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 Beasley!

He is a 6 year old Chihuahua mix who is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccines.  If you are looking for a sweet lap dog who loves to cuddle, Beasley is the dog for the job!  He has a very sweet personality and gets along well with other dogs here at the shelter.  He is also very good with children!  Beasley would do well in a house or apartment and has no adoption restrictions.  Please come visit Beasley during our visiting hours of 1-4:30pm everyday except Thursdays and help Beasley find the lap of his dreams!

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 Beasley 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!

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
