Meet Hilda, our Pet of the Week.   She is a short haired full grown Chihuahua, weighing in at just 9 pounds. Sounds like a great lap dog to me.  Hilda is about a year old, already spayed and she loves people.  She also likes peace and quiet. So please get her out of the animal shelter quick.

You can stop by and see Hilda at the Temple Animal Shelter, 620 Mama Dog Circle.  They will let you play with Hilda there and see if she is a good fit for your family.

If you need a bigger dog they have those too, and they have a lot of kittens.  Too Many Kittens!  Officer Hetzel urges everybody to get those cats spayed and neutered.

If you need affordable preventive pet health care "Emancipet" in Killeen provides low-cost spay/neuter and veterinary care to Bell County.
