Pet Adoptions volunteer training

Pet Adoptions of Cuero is bursting at the seams with lots of loveable dogs and cats. Thanks to support from the city and our local vets, all the pets (except puppies and kittens) have been spayed or neutered and have all necessary shots and medical attention. Right now there is such a wonderful selection of dogs - large, small and in between. There are outdoor dogs, cuddle in your lap dogs and dogs that want a loving human to run and play with. The volunteer staff highly recommends some of their dogs that are over two years old. They are still full of energy and love but don’t have the typical habits seen with puppies such as chewing and digging. Most of them just want a comfortable corner to snooze in, fresh water and two meals a day.

Make your Spring and Summer plans to include a new family pet - it will be a rewarding experience for every member of your family - especially the adopted pet.

Election forum Thursday at Cuero Lifeway Church

Voters in DeWitt County will have another opportunity to make their voices heard. Along with several state races, there will be a runoff for the local District Attorney’s office.

This runoff will be the deciding factor between Terry Breen and Rob Lassman. Although the pair garnered over seventy percent of the votes during the March primary,  neither reached the magic “fifty percent plus one vote” required for a victory. The March primary also featured Jay Condie, who looked as though he was sure to be in a runoff with Lassman. Overnight voting results from Refugio County threw the dice the other way, putting Breen in the runoff.

Another runoff being decided will be for the Railroad Commissioner. Out of all seven candidates, the runoff has come down to Gary Gates and Wayne Christian.
