Ben ADOPTED TX's Story...

Meet Benjamin!

Benjamin was adopted 3/31/09. His new home is in Texarkana, TX.

Benjamin is a red neutered male, longhaired Dachshund. Birthday guess is 3/3/07 and he weighs 12.06 pounds. Benjamin visited the vet clinic 3/6/09 and received his rabies shot, Direct and Occult heartworm tested negative and fecal tested negative. He had his neuter stitches removed. Benjamin started Interceptor for heartworm prevention and is having Frontline placed on him for flea control. Pictures taken 3/29/09.

Benjamin was rescued from the Paragould Arkansas Animal Shelter. He was picked upped as a stray. Benjamin’s time was up on the adoption floor. Pat K. with Small K 9 rescue in Paragould, AR contacted JTR to help him. Benjamin made his way to Texarkana in the dog rescue van 3/6/09.

Benjamin is a very friendly guy. He wags his tail to everyone he meets. Benjamin likes to explore the backyard and also hang out watching TV. He is the perfect companion. He is potty, crate and leash trained.

Special thank you to Pat K. with Small K 9 Rescue Paragould, Arkansas. Pat's efforts to help the NE Arkansas animals are admired!

To apply for adoption please email to received an adoption application. If you have already completed an application with another rescue, please feel free to email that application.

JTR will transport and ship any animal. All rescued animals deserve a wonderful home now and not sit waiting for months. Jeff will personally drive some distance to help a homeless animal find his or hers forever home.

Never adopted before?

Everyone wishing to adopt an animal from JTR must complete an adoption application. This application asks for general information about the adopter, adopter’s family, other current and prior pets and previous veterinary care. If you have never had a family pet before, follow up veterinary calls will be made during the year to insure the animal is being well cared for. Home visits are required unless the distance is too far for JTR or JTR’s contacts. Pictures of the home and common ground are required. Once the application is approved the adopter may meet and or adopt any of JTR's animals. A signed adoption contract is required. Adopters with approved applications are top priority to JTR.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben ADOPTED TX, a Texarkana Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Texarkana, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Texarkana.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Texarkana already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Texarkana breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Texarkana paves the way for another one to be saved.
