Maggie goes home

Matt and Amy Urbanus and their family are obviously glad they adopted Maggie at the Rockwall Petco on Saturday! Rambo and Homer are also on their way to their new homes. Thank you again, Rockwall! Rock on!

Morticia is haunting your dreams

This long-haired black cat could be a Ghostbuster, because she obviously "ain't afraid of no ghosts." Morticia's trick is blending her good looks with a scary Halloween display. Her treat is knowing she would look even better cuddling in your lap. Your face will light up like a jack-o-lantern when you see this anything-but-scary cat at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center.

Trixie is a tough one

Trixie is one tough dog. She ended up at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center after her rear legs were crushed, probably after she was hit by a car. She's alive today due to the nurturing and care of the staff at Rockwall Animal Services. They nursed Trixie back to health, so now this resilient lady is looking for a home. This playful shepherd mix has earned her second chance. She's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of October 18, 2010.

Trixie is also living proof that Rockwall Animal Services is one of the best departments of its type in America. Animal Services spent weeks caring for Trixie before she was well enough to be put up for adoption. Animal Services cared for Jenny the cat for six months before she was adopted earlier this month. The stories are endless.

Suffice it to say that Rockwall Animal Services works extremely hard to find these dogs and cats new homes. They'll do whatever it takes until the shelter pet - and its new family - has a happy ending.

That's dedication. That's excellence.

Getting ready for the big party

Juan Hernandez and Paul Abernathy of Rockwall Animal Services have begun installing banners for the biggest pet party in Rockwall history. Just added: A Doggie Day Spa sponsored by Petco with free manis and pedis for your dog! Get all the details at

Rambo is ready to rumble

The name brings to mind a rugged hero who's unafraid of danger. This Rambo may be tough, but he's really just a big baby. He's a one-year-old Anatolian shepherd mix who's big and strong, but loves to play with children and other dogs. If you like your heroic males a little on the soft side, Rambo is your dog. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of October 11, 2010.

Maggie is blessed

Reverend Mark Irons blessed Maggie, a Rockwall shelter pet, during yesterday's Blessing of the Pets ceremony at First Christian Church Rockwall. It was the third annual ceremony hosted by the church, which also collected donations for the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center.

Take two for Ace

Yes, Ace may look familiar. Through an unfortunate set of circumstances, none of which were his fault, the little terrier mix has returned to the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. He's participated in some off-site adoption events, including Find-a-Friend Fridays at the Rockwall Petco, so he knows how to behave in public. Give the little guy the happy ending he deserves by taking him home today!

Ace is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of October 4, 2010. Find out more about him at
