Provide a Pet a Pad for Sarge at the Shelter
This week's featured pet is an adult shepherd mix from the shelter. He is already neutered, which means the adoption fee is less than $60. Sarge is good on a leash and loves affection. He is a great guard dog and no one will arrive at your home without him letting you know that you have company. His bark is scary but he is a sweetheart.
Sarge is around 4 or 5 years old. He likes to roll around in the grass and loves to be petted. He knows "sit" too. Walking with him on a leash is very easy. If you would like to have a dog at your home that will walk the perimeter to make sure all is okay and then come hang out with you on the porch, Sarge is the dog for you.
If you are interested in adopting, fostering or sponsoring any of these dogs, please contact Bertha at the animal shelter by calling 870-773-6388, option 3. If you sponsor a dog that means that you will pay the fee to have the dog fixed and get a rabies vaccination. Once that is done, the adoption fee will only be $40, which makes it much easier to get a dog adopted from the shelter.
The Animal Care and Adoption Center in Texarkana, Ark., is our only animal shelter in town. They have a few hundred dogs and cats that need to be reclaimed or adopted. Room is always an issue at a city animal shelter. We feature an animal each week to help get the word out about many of these great pets.
T-shirts are available at the animal shelter now. They are only $18 and will help support the animals at the shelter. Thanks for supporting our shelter animals.
Please visit the shelter's Facebook page to see if there is an animal there that you would be interested in adopting, fostering or sponsoring.
It is so unfortunate that there are thousands of dogs that are euthanized every year in our local shelter when there are so many dogs that would make fabulous pets. Please help us make a difference by spreading the word. Share this post on your Facebook page and Tweet about it, too.
The shelter's adoption fees range from $40 to $144, depending on the gender and size of the animal or whether they have been spayed or neutered yet. You can also have your pet microchipped for only $20 right at the shelter. That way if your pet is ever lost, he or she can be returned to you quickly.
If you would like to foster a dog contact the shelter to get information about dog rescues in our area that can help.
The Animal Care and Adoption Center is located at 203 Harrison St., Texarkana, Ark. 71854 and is open Monday through Friday from 11AM and 5PM and Saturdays from 11AM to 2PM.
