Provide a Pet a Pad for Sampson at the Animal Shelter

Sampson is less than two years old, believed to be a coonhound mix. He is very smart and walks fantastic on a leash. He looks up at his person for direction while walking. He didn’t jump up and I was amazed at how great he was after just coming out of the kennel inside the shelter. He didn’t pull or jerk on the leash either. He enjoyed sniffing around when he was allowed to but when it was time to go back inside, he followed commands quickly.

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.
