Last Pet Adoption for 2015 at PetSmart Dec. 19th


Every child at one point wants a puppy for Christmas. Many dogs and cats will be available for adoption on Saturday, Dec. 19th during the adoption event at PetSmart in Texarkana. This will be the last adoption event before Christmas so be sure to get there on time at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Texarkana Animal League will host this adoption event. Little Paws Rescue, Muttley Crew German Shepherd Rescue and Passion for Pooches Rescue will also be at this event. They will have dogs available just in time for Christmas. If the family has been asking for a pet, now is a great time to make that happen.

From Yorkies to Great Pyrenees, there will be many dogs to choose from. Cats are also available to adopt from the cat room at PetSmart.

All dogs and many puppies have been spayed or neutered and are current on vaccinations. Occasionally, puppies have been vaccinated, but not yet spayed or neutered. In these cases, a sterilization agreement is required as part of the adoption contract.

Rescue will have their adoptable dogs available to pet, visit with and ask questions about to see if the dog would be a good fit for your home. Adoption fees vary per dog and per rescue. Not all of the local rescues will be at this event so for information about dogs that are available through local rescues, visit these Facebook pages or find them on Petfinder: Little Paws Rescue, Passion for Pooches, Texarkana Animal League, Muttley Crew German Shepherd Rescue, ArkLaTex Cocker Spaniel Rescue and Boxer Rescue of Texarkana.

Please consider adoption before buying a puppy or kitten. Adoption fees and donations will help the rescues in the care of their rescued animals as well as Texarkana Animal League’s community outreach programs such as a low-income spay/neuter assistance program, rescue assistance program and foster care program.

TAL’s belief that all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. TAL provides the shelter’s animals with all of the necessary vaccinations & medications from funds raised throughout the year.

Their low Income spay/neuter assistance program has spayed and neutered more than 1,000 animals in the community in addition to hundreds of animals that found homes through TAL’s foster care program. To learn more about TAL visit its website or call 1-877-525-4825.
