Provide a Pet a Pad — Black Lab Named Outlaw [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]

Whoever ends up with this dog is going to be very lucky! Outlaw is a super docile Black Lab mix. He is great with other dogs and very submissive. Outlaw is awesome on the leash and fetches along with bringing the ball back! A little shy but once you spend some time with him, he comes to life. You really can't ask for a better dog, but he has been in the pound since November.

Provide a Pet a Pad — German Shepherd at Animal Shelter [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]

Dixie is a two year old German Shepherd that is a dream on a leash. She is house-trained too! She is playful and has a great temperament. She is not a fan of little dogs or cats though. Dixie is up to date on her vaccinations and heartworm prevention.

This beautiful German Shepherd was recently taken to the shelter by her owners because she did not get along with the little dogs at the house. In all fairness to the little dogs, they were there first. The husband was so sad to give her up but momma said she had to go.

Provide a Pet a Pad — Zane the Rottweiller Mix Puppy [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]

It is totally unbelievable that this gorgeous Rottweiler mix puppy is still at the shelter! Zane is so sweet and so smart. He is an affectionate and very intelligent puppy that is just sitting at the shelter waiting and waiting for a new family to take him home. Could this be your new dog? He is now about six months old. We first featured him in December and I just knew he would be gone before my blog was posted but that some how did not happen. Zane is a playful boy as you will see in his new video link below. He plays GREAT with other dogs, even smaller dogs. Zane could learn to fetch quickly too. He has a very soft coat. This young pup comes when called which is a great quality. With a few short training sessions of basic commands he is bound to amaze you with his super smarts.

6 Ways to Help the Animal Shelter Without Spending Money

My first suggestion is to volunteer! The animal shelter could always use a couple of extra hands to walk the dogs, give baths or even help potential adopters pick out dogs. We only have one shelter. Our local shelter is called the Animal Care and Adoption Center and it is located at 203 Harrison in Texarkana, Arkansas. They are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you want to reach them by phone you should dial 870-773-6388.
