Texarkana Animal League

The Texarkana Animal League has been in existence serving the pet population of Texarkana since the 1940’s in various capacities. We have been animal advocates, contracted with both of our twin cities for the running of the daily operations of the shelter, and our latest adventure returns back to our roots as advocates. As of December 2008, our organization no longer held the contract to run the local animal shelter, and with that change in direction, we have been able to approach the animal community in a completely different direction. Although operations have changed our mission has not. The Texarkana Animal League exists to provide protection and care for abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted companion animals. We also want to promote animal welfare through programs and services that mutually benefit animals and people.We have been able to use our annual fundraiser, the “Tails of Two Cities” Day Planner to start three community-based programs. One helps low income households spay and neuter their pets and another helps current rescuers with medical costs of special needs animals. Finally, we established a foster care program to pull needy animals from the community, as well as the shelter, which will provide the extra medical attention and socialization needed in order for the animal to become adoptable. low income, Spay/Neuter Assistance Program. Along with altering the companion animal, we have included a wellness check, vaccines, and a heartworm test. This program is provided to Bowie, Cass, Little River and Miller county residents for the low cost of $50 for dogs and $35 for cats. TAL covers all expenses for this program. Prices have been negotiated for the different procedures, but the cost remains the same to the public. All of our adoptable animals are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and on flea/tick/heartworm prevention.These items will take an animal from no or nominal care to complete care and will make them highly adoptable. We have teamed up with and PetSmart Charities to promote our adoptable animals.

She was not socialized and h ad not received much attention or nutrition. When we got her and her sister, they were terrified and acted like being petted hurt because they weren't used to being touched. It was so sad. No matter how scared they were though we have never seen an ounce of aggression from either one. They are the sweetest babies and love being touched and loved on now. They are food driven so treats and positive reinforcement go a long way in their training. They are both in the process of being housebroken and are potty pad trained at present. If you are looking for a little playful love bug this little girl, or her sister Mia are the ones for you :)
