Pet of the Week is Megan, a Brindle Mix
Megan's vetting has been sponsored so her adoption fee will only be $40. Megan is good with other dogs, too. She loves to sniff around and check out the perimeter. She is a mix, possibly, shepherd. She is approximately 40 pounds and has been at the shelter since December of 2015.
Megan is our pet of the week. She loves to eat grass maybe because it just tastes good or for other reasons (see story link below about why dogs eat grass). She is at the Texarkana ACAC. She is a fun dog. Check out her videos, photos and this one very silly looking photo that I snapped after she sniffed something that apparently didn't smell good.
Here is a link to a story published on Toby's Tails Facebook page, a local wildlife rescue. It explains why dogs eat grass.
Dogs and cats are euthanized every week in our local shelter. It is up to the community to prevent it. Spay and neuter your pets. Volunteer to help educate citizens about the need to fix their animals. Share this post on your Facebook page and Tweet about it, too.
The shelter's adoption fees range from $40 to $144, depending on the gender and size of the animal or whether they have been spayed or neutered yet. You can also have your pet microchipped for only $20 at the shelter. That way if your pet is ever lost, he or she can be returned to you quickly.
If you would like to foster a dog, contact the shelter to get information about dog rescues in our area that can help.
The Animal Care and Adoption Center is located at 203 Harrison St., Texarkana, Ark., 71854 and is open Monday through Friday from 11AM and 5PM and Saturdays from 11AM to 2PM.
