It won't be long now the much-needed new kennels are just about three months away from being completed at the new Animal Care and Adoption Center in Texarkana.

Board members from Texarkana, Arkansas approved the purchase of new kennels this week something the facility has been waiting for in order to officially open. The new shelter will not only have more adoption kennels but provide better living conditions for its pets. This new building is expected to keep animals that are ready for adoption and the additional flooring space will be remodeled and used for incoming strays.

Cat Room

Some of the new features will include a Cat Room where visitors can come and sit with their potential new feline. There will also be a meet and greet room as well designed to give the adoptee a personal touch and feel, literally. The purpose of the new building is to house the animals in a healthy environment while they await adoption from a loving family.
