Stop by PetSmart Saturday for howl-ing good time and see all of the dogs and cats looking for new homes. Texarkana Animal League and several other local rescues will be at the Texarkana store from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 20.

Large and small dogs as well as cats and kitten will be at this event. Adoption fees vary per dog. Cat adoption fees are $80. The 18 rat terriers that were rescued from the Simms area will be at this event. Many of those dogs are in urgent need of an adoptive or a foster home.

Please consider adoption before buying a puppy or kitten. All of these animals are current on  vaccinations and have been spayed or neutered; many are even microchipped.

Visit TAL's Facebook page for event details.

The Carnival Wagon will also be on site with lots of great snacks and wonderful cool refreshing drinks.
