Meet Xenote. The SPCA of Texas handles a lot more than just dogs and cats. In fact, it has cared for more than 500 different species during its years of service in North Texas. The SPCA of Texas routinely handles equine and livestock, and Xenote is one of our current residents looking for a forever home. She is an 8-year-old female standard donkey mix. She is in training for catching in pasture, but she is already patient in standing for a farrier (a person who works on horseshoes). She is also good around children. The adopter experience level for this one is from beginner to intermediate. In terms of doing equine work, this donkey is available for adoption as a companion only. A potential adopter needs to have the space, facilities and enclosure to handle this kind of animal. The adoption fee for Xenote is $300. Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older, however the adult fee is reduced to $25 until the end of April for the “Showers of Love” event. Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older, initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative, a microchip, 30 days of PetHealth Insurance provided by PetHealth, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, a rabies tag and a free leash.
