Pets of the Week: Meet Newton & Teddy!

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.


Newton is a 2-year-old Black-Mouth Cur that has been at the shelter since March 18, 2022, with his buddy Dutch (49798239).

Newton has beautiful eyes; one blue and one brown! He has learned so much while being at the shelter and his behavior in his kennel has calmed down tremendously.

This sweet boy is eager to learn new tricks and do anything to make his human happy!

Newton has plenty of energy for whatever adventure awaits. If you need a 10/10 good boy in your like, come to the shelter and adopt Newton!


Teddy (50053678) has done a complete 360 since arriving to the shelter on April 26, 2022. This boy was very scared after being owner surrendered, because of no fault of his own.

Now, Teddy love to get head scratches and really enjoys mealtime! He loves roaming around the cat room and smelling all the other cats. If you take one look in his striking green eyes, you’ll instantly fall in love!

Teddy is always ready for a nap on the couch or doing some bird watching. Teddy really is the total package!
