Hans and Otto

Just an update on Basil and Clyde who were both adopted by the same family who drove in from Birmingham, Ala. Basil is now Hans, and Clyde is now Otto.

This update from their new family:

"They love their walks and their new home. Both sleep in our laps whenever they can, and Hans woke us up with sweet kisses today.

"We are very happy to have them and most important: they seem to be very happy too."

The animal welfare community is vibrant and passionate about saving the lives of countless homeless pets. These persons and organizations, located throughout our city and nation, provide foster homes, transport animals, promote the adoption of animals, post pictures on websites, and assist shelters in numerous other ways. Irving Animal Services works with the animal welfare community to place Irving Animal Care Campus animals into loving homes. While Irving Animal Services is appreciative of the efforts of the individuals and organizations that comprise the animal welfare community, the City of Irving neither controls them nor is responsible for the content on their websites.
