With a name like Precious, how could this pert and pretty little lady be anything else? As full of energy as a dog half her age, 17-year-old Rat Terrier, Precious, is friendly, affectionate and very loving. Just ask the person cuddled up next to her. A well-mannered miss, she is quiet and never barks, and is fully housetrained if you pay attention to her signals. She once had surgery on her right front leg and now takes daily pain meds for arthritis without complaint. Sadly for sweet Precious, she was released to Animal Control by her owner on his way to life in a nursing home. Luckily for lovely Precious, we intervened, saving her from certain death, to allow her to spend the rest of her own life in the loving security of a real forever home. To apply online, go to


About Texarkana Animal League

About Our Rescue Group...

Texarkana Animal League (TAL) is a group of volunteers that is dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in our shelter & the community. Although we are no longer involved in the day to day operations of running a facility, our mission has not changed:

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.

All proceeds will benefit animal care and adoptions, and will assist with our new community outreach programs such as a low-income spay/neuter assistance program, as well as educational and service projects to assist TAL's belief that all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. In 2008, over 2200 shelter animals received vaccinations & vet care from funds raised and we will continue to provide the same care to shelter animals this year. In 2009, we anticipate altering at least 250 animals in the community with the Spay/Neuter Assistance Program and funding an in-house spay/neuter clinic at the Animal Care & Adoption Center of Texarkana that will alter shelter animals prior to adoption.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at the Texarkana PetSmart on the first and third Saturdays of ever month. We also have the cat adoption center in the Texarkana PetSmart. Please contact us at 877-525-4825 to make arrangements to see any of our adoptable animals
