Meet Stormy! We’re not sure of all the breeds included in this mix, but the end result turned out to be Hollywood good looks — look at those eyes! Stormy is 5 years old and weighs 48 pounds. She has a sweet disposition, and the staff says she is quite curious. Stormy came to the SPCA of Texas as a stray and would very much prefer to leave the shelter with a new family that loves her. She is housed at the SPCA of Texas Ellis County Animal Care Center in Waxahachie. The shelter is open Tuesdays-Saturdays from noon-6 p.m.

\Adult dogs and cats are normally a $75 adoption fee from the SPCA of Texas. Puppies and kittens under the age of six months are $150. Adoption fees vary for small mammals, equestrian and livestock.
