Partnership with PAWS Shelter

Manchaca Village Veterinary Care teams up with PAWS Shelter of Central Texas each month in an effort to highlight two homeless pets that need new homes. Those who adopt any of these highlighted pets during the month they’re promoted can take advantage of MVVC’s monthly adoption special.

Pets like these often have sad stories, at no fault of their own. They just need a second chance. To meet these pets, please visit PAWS Shelter at 500 FM 150 E., Kyle TX 78640. Visit our lobby or see our Facebook page for the latest pets in the monthly spotlight.

MVVC sponsors Manchaca Fire Dept. Puppy, “Boots!”

Introducing “Boots,” the firehouse puppy we’re sponsoring for Manchaca Fire Rescue Station#503.

“Boots” was found wandering around South Austin the last week of January. A couple of ladies saw him and thought it was strange that a puppy was out all alone. They searched long and hard for the owner, but were unsuccessful.

Boots had no name tag or microchip to identify him by. Wanting to find a good home for Boots, they dropped him off at Manchaca Fire Rescue on Brodie Lane. One of the firefighters took him home for the night until he could make other arrangements to find Boots a good home.

The next day, Nathan Mendenhall, Fire Prevention Specialist, saw Boots and after a brief introduction, decided Boots was a good puppy to take home so he could get used to kids and people. Mendenhall’s family had been looking for a dog and talking about getting one for some time.

Mendenhall stated, “The goal for Boots is for him to get trained to be around kids and not to nip people, so that hopefully some day Boots can be taken to schools and public events for Fire Prevention talks.”

In the meantime, you can find Boots hanging out at the fire stations during the workday on most days getting used to firefighters and station life (or getting his preventative care checkups and vaccinations at MVVC!)
