There will be a variety of dogs and cats available for adoption on Saturday, May 2, at PetSmart in Texarkana. Because of the pending rain, the rescue groups will be set up inside the store so be sure to look from the front to the back. 

The Texarkana Animal League and Passion for Pooches will be at the adoption event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Each rescue 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. Cat adoption fees are $80 through TAL. All cats, dogs have been spayed or neutered and are current on their vaccines.

If you are looking for a new pet, be sure to visit the adoption event this Saturday at PetSmart from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PetSmart is located at 117 Richmond Road Ranch in Texarkana, Texas.
