Give a gift of love this holiday season

Rockwall Petco employee Kayla Canavier (center) joins Rockwall animal shelter volunteers Pam Kitkoski (with Jake) and Barbara Seed (holding Sandy) to celebrate the ongoing success of the Tree of Hope. Petco shoppers have been making holiday donations to the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center through the Tree of Hope program. The Rockwall Petco has already raised nearly half of its $4000 goal. More information is available on the Rockwall Pets web site.

Sandy can't figure it out

This little chihuahua-mix has it all. She's cute, sweet, even-tempered, playful and loving. Yet she's been at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center for over a month. She's ready to be the perfect lap warmer for the holiday season. Sandy is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of November 29, 2010.

Corey is a unique dog. He's a border collie/corgi mix who's very outgoing and playful. At a glance, he looks like a border collie with very short legs. Although he has the short stature of a corgi, Corey has all the intelligence you'd expect from a border collie. Make this holiday season one to remember by adopting this unique dog from the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of November 22, 2010.

Kali goes home

We're off to a great week! Kali, last week's Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet of the Week, was just adopted! Thanks again, Rockwall.

Meet Archie the Wonder Dog

This is a miracle dog. Archie was found in pitiful shape about two months ago. Scarred, starving and scared, this lab mix could have been classified a cruelty case. Now he's filling out, happily greeting strangers and romping around the yard. Archie knows what it's like to be abused. Now he's ready to live the good life with you and your family. Archie is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of November 8, 2010.

It all happens Saturday from 10am-noon at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. Buddy's also hoping his formal attire convinces you to take him home after the party.
