There will be a variety of dogs and cats available for adoption on Saturday, Jan. 17 at Petsmart in Texarkana. The weather should be fairly nice so some of the rescue groups will probably be outside and some inside too.

The Texarkana Animal League, Passion for Pooches Rescue, Little Paws Rescue and Boxer Rescue of Texarkana will all be at the adoption event which starts at 10 a.m. and usually lasts until 3 p.m. 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.
