This Saturday come by PetSmart in Texarkana and check out all of the small, medium and large breed dogs that will be there looking for new homes. Then swing by the cat room and say hello to all of the sweet faces on the other side of the window. The cats are up for adoption, too!

Several dog rescues will be attending this adoption event. The adoption event is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 1.

Dog rescues 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. All of the dogs have been spayed or neutered and are current on their vaccinations.
