Pets of the Week: Meet Amber & Gomez!


Looking to adopt or foster animals from the local shelter? Here are the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter pets of the week! Spread the word to help these animals find their forever homes.


Amber (49581904) is a beautiful Boerboel mix with stunning fur and cute floppy ear! This sweet girl is looking for a quiet home with no kids so she can feel calm and relaxed every day.

She loves being outside and playing tug with just about any toy. Amber likes to play with other dogs and has already made a couple of pals while being at the shelter! She’s a little shy, so she would appreciate some patience once she arrives at her new home.

Once she warms up, she can be a very fun and lively 3-year-old. Plus, at only 45 pounds, she’s the perfect size for any adventure! Come meet Amber today!


Gomez (49594267) is a very silly kitty with a big heart! He likes to spend his time glued to his human or taking names in the sun. If you stick your hand out, he’ll climb all the way up and stand on your chest!

Cute and athletic? We think yes! Gomez is a special needs cat that has been at the shelter since February 14, 2022, and in and out of medical treatment due to what our vet partners believe to be irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

He will need to be on a sensitive food diet, and his future owner should be aware that his poop will most likely always be loose.

Gomez specializes in posing funny and sticking out his canine teeth so he looks like a vampire! He says it’s always a crowd-pleaser! Come mee him today, you won’t want to miss out on this sweet boy.

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter.

All ready-to-go pets (meaning cats and dogs that have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped) are $10 until further notice and include spay/neuter, vet exam, vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of free pet health insurance.
