Pet adoption event on Saturday at PetSmart in Texarkana, Texas. Apply to adopt or foster a dog or cat. 

There will be a variety of dogs looking for homes. You will be able to ask the rescues about the personalities of the dogs and find one that fits your family perfectly. Some of the rescues will let you try the dogs out in your home for a short period of time to make sure the transition goes smoothly. There are also volunteers in the cat room that can tell you about the cats' personalities and there is an area you can sit and visit with the cats.

Adoption fees vary per dog, and cat adoption fees are $80. All of these animals are current on their vaccines and have been spayed or neutered and microchipped. Occasionally, puppies have been vaccinated, but not yet spayed or neutered. In these cases, a sterilization agreement is required as part of the adoption contract.

Event info:

Rescues will have their adoptable dogs available to pet, visit with and ask questions about to see if the dog would be a good fit for your home. Adoption fees vary per dog and per rescue. Not all of the local rescues will be at this event so for information about dogs that are available through local rescues, visit the online: Little Paws RescuePassion for Pooches, Texarkana Animal League, Muttley Crew German Shepherd RescueArkLaTex Cocker Spaniel Rescue and Boxer Rescue of Texarkana.

Please consider adoption before buying a puppy or kitten. Adoption fees and donations will help the rescues in the care of their rescued animals.
