Ark-La-Tex Animal Rescue's adoption process

Additional adoption info

To adopt or foster, we require that you fill out a very short application, completely and thoroughly. Incomplete applications are an instant rejection. You will then receive a phone call from one of our adoption coordinators, who will go over the application as well as ask some more in depth questions. Typically, a meet & greet is scheduled (if choosing to adopt) with the dog that adopter is interested in, preferably done in the adopters home so a home check can be done as well by coordinator, and go over our adoption agreement. If the adopter is ready, and coordinator has approval from director, they may begin their two week trial period that day, or on an agreed date, in which half of the adoption fee is due. Should the adopter decide anytime during that two week time period that they do not want the dog, they may contact the coordinator who will promptly pick up the dog and refund the money paid, unless another dog is requested. Once the two week trial period is over, the adoption coordinator will return with adoption form, sign the paperwork and collect the other half of the adoption fee. A printed, frameable adoption certificate will then be mailed to the adopters. Adoption fees for fully vetted, heartworm negative, altered dogs is $125. Puppies under 6 months old are $80 and it is the responsibility of the adopter to alter the dog no more then one month after the dog has become of age to be altered.

Ark-La-Tex Animal Rescue's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Texarkana, TX.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
