The Texarkana Animal League is hosting a community event to accept applications for adopting or fostering homeless dog and cats on Saturday, July 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Texarkana PetSmart.

Several local rescues will be attending this event. There will be a variety of dogs and cats looking for homes. This event is free to attend, adoption fees vary per dog, and cat adoption fees are $80. Please consider adoption before buying a puppy or kitten to bring into your home. All of these animals are current on their vaccines and have been spayed or neutered; many are even microchipped. Visit our Facebook page for all of our event details, www.facebook.com/TexarkanaAnimalLeague.

The Carnival Wagon will also be on site with lots of great snacks and wonderful cool refreshing drinks!
