1 Pet Adoption | Ora Needs a Loving Forever Home! Currently Being Fostered by Dee

ORA was recently fully groomed. She is a super sweet four year old shitzu yorkie. The owner could no longer keep her in her apartment complex. I am fostering her for the humane society and she needs a forever home. Loving, attentive and playful but past the puppy stage. She gets along great with my WHODAT. Please pass on! My number is 361-463-9301. I can bring her to the Humane Society for a meet and greet. Thanks so much, Dee

0 Roving Reporter | "Juvenile Red Shoulder Hawk on Wifi Tower in Rockport"

"This beautiful, young hawk briefly appeared in our backyard a few days ago.

Yesterday, he returned with a very loud "Caaauuuw! Caaauuuw!" heard through an open window as I was working on my computer, so I ran to the window and looked in the trees...nothing...after searching for a minute or two I looked waaay up and spotted him perched on top of our wifi tower looking down at me!

Needless to say, our old house kitty, sunning himself on our back porch was immediately taken inside. :)" ~ Alicia
