Every Tuesday we have a dog in our Power 95.9 Studios from the local animal shelter in hopes of finding it a new home. It is always a dog because we (Wes and Mimi) are allergic to cats.

Our local shelter usually has over 100 dogs and over 30 cats available for adoption every day. There are many more animals located in the holding areas "downstairs" that are either waiting for their owners to reclaim them or hoping for a spot on the adoption floor to open. There were only a few adoptions last week which means there were a lot of animals that had to be euthanized. To see more of the adoptable animals visit the shelter at 203 Harrison in Texarkana, Arkansas or check out their website at

Did you know that one unspayed dog and her offspring, can reproduce over 65,000 dogs in just six years. You do not have to wait until your pet is 6 months old to get them fixed. Pediatric spay and neuter is available in Texarkana. Check with the great folks at Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital!

Pleasant Grove Animal Hospital has a Pet Health Care Library. Check out their website because they also provide the links to websites that provide some great information on a variety of topics related to veterinary medicine and pet health care.
