Meet Scarlett, a dainty but energetic little lady available for adoption from the SPCA of Texas. Scarlett is a Labrador retriever mix approaching her 11th birthday who can still scamper around. As an older dog, she is available for adoption with a medical consideration to address some age-related issues. Scarlett came to the SPCA of Texas from a hoarding seizure in Hunt County back in May. She’s done well in her journey since and is currently in foster care so an appointment is necessary to meet her.
