6 Ways to Help the Animal Shelter Without Spending Money

My first suggestion is to volunteer! The animal shelter could always use a couple of extra hands to walk the dogs, give baths or even help potential adopters pick out dogs. We only have one shelter. Our local shelter is called the Animal Care and Adoption Center and it is located at 203 Harrison in Texarkana, Arkansas. They are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you want to reach them by phone you should dial 870-773-6388.

Should You Change Your Adopted Pet’s Name?

Adopting from my rescue may be different than any other rescue because I have it in my contract on most dogs you CANNOT change their name. The reason: there are so many other things that are about to change in this dog's life, the name needs to stay the same but that's only if the dog has had the name for three months or more and it responds well to the name.

Provide a Pet a Pad for a Puppy [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]

 

This cute puppy is playful and loyal. Baxter is a large breed puppy although his exact breeds are unknown. Some guess a hound while others guess a possible mix with mastiff. A quick look at his extra skin around his neck and face are a sure sign of his size to come.

Baxter is very smart and at such a young age, he is great on a leash! He likes to keep track and connect with his person by laying on your feet. Baxter loves to play ball and will even bring it back to you! Check out his videos below.

Provide a Pet a Pad for a Sweet Young Shepherd Mix [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]

This sweet shepherd mix female is very young. She absolutely loves to play fetch and can entertain herself playing and chewing on toys. At first she was a bit scared and did not want to walk on the leash once she was out of the kennel area. Quickly she warmed up and would even come when called. She will need some leash work and would probably do best on a harness that allows you to hook to the front. She did not have a name so I picked "Trixie" for her. She is very friendly. Her colors are gorgeous and her coat is soft. I could have played with Trixie for hours. She has a sweet personality and is a lot of fun to watch.
