Why is Texarkana’s Animal Shelter Considered ‘High Kill’?

Many people have recently mistakenly thought that our animal shelter in Texarkana was a no kill shelter. That simply is not possible.

The animal shelter in Texarkana is a "high kill shelter." Find out why and how you can help change it.

Provide a Pet a Pad for Obo at the Animal Shelter

Obo is an 11 month old Terrier-Pitt mix that has been on the adoption floor for some time now. He is very energetic and has an outgoing personality. Obo loves to be petted and presses his head into your hand when you reach through the kennel fence. His personality is sweet with people and the boss with dogs. Ethan was his most recent kennel buddy and they had fun together but since Ethan's adoption last month, Obo has been all alone.

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.
