The Mesquite, in conjunction with San Antonio Humane Society,  posts a Pet of the Week for the campus community to meet adoptable pets in the San Antonio area.

Frida is a 1 year old Dachshund/Terrier mix who was brought to the shelter by a good samaritan who found her wandering the streets. Frida is a sweet, friendly, and energetic girl. She loves to meet new people and makes friends quickly. She also enjoys taking walks and exploring her surroundings. She will make a great addition to any loving family. If Frida sounds like the girl for you, adopt her at the San Antonio Humane Society today! While Frida has already been spayed, please remember to spay/neuter your pets to help ensure every dog and cat born has a home waiting for them.
