If you are looking to adopt a pet, be sure to go to Petsmart this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Texarkana, Texas. Jeff Tarpley Rescue will also attend this event with dogs that are looking for new homes. There are also always cats available for adoption in the cat room at Petsmart. 

Texarkana Animal League is hosting an adoption event to accept applications for adopting or fostering currently-homeless dog and cats. There will be a variety of dogs and cats looking for homes. 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; many are even microchipped.

Come by Petsmart at 117 Richmond Road Ranch in Texarkana, Texas, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday to see the pets that are up for adoption. For more information about dogs that are available for adoption in the Texarkana area visit these websites: Jeff Tarpley Rescue and Texarkana Animal League.

Please consider adoption before buying a puppy or kitten. All of these animals are current on vaccinations.

Adoption fees and donations will help the rescues in the care of their rescued animals as well as Texarkan Animal League's community outreach programs such as a low-income spay/neuter assistance program. TAL believes that all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. In 2011, over 1500 shelter animals received vaccinations & medications from funds raised. TAL will continue to provide the same care to shelter animals this year. Since 2009, TAL has spayed and neutered over 500 animals in the community with their Low Income Spay/Neuter Assistance Program in addition to hundreds of animals that found homes through the Foster Care Program. To learn more about TAL visit the website at TexarkanaAnimalLeague.org or call 1-877-525-4825. TAL is a 501c3 nonprofit run by a group of volunteers that is dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in our community.
