Dora the Explorer

Dora is ready to explore her way to your heart. She's an adult chihuahua who's cute, friendly and cuddly. She may be a little timid when she first meets you. But once you earn her trust, she'll roll over for some well-deserved belly rubs. Dora is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of January 31, 2011.

Join the Presley Fan Club

This friendly kitty has managed to fall between the cracks. Even though Presley is handsome and outgoing, he hasn't attracted much attention at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. He's declawed, neutered, up-to-date on all his shots and very gentle. What more does a cat have to do to attract attention? Become the president of the Presley Fan Club by adopting the Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of January 24, 2011.

Wow! You've nearly emptied the shelter again, Rockwall! Dogs like cute little Tito are barely on adoption row for 24 hours before you adopt them. Thanks again!

Pure energy

Are you ready? Put down that can of Red Bull and prepare yourself for a jolt of pure energy. Hunter is ready to spring into action 24/7/356. If you can coax him into stopping long enough, he'll show you flashes of his labrador intelligence. With some obedience training, Hunter is going to be a great companion. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of January 17, 2011.

Adoptions on this historic day

And before we forget, Droopy and Liz were both adopted today. Thanks for a great day, Rockwall!

Making history on January 10

Monday January 10, 2011 was a historic day at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. Dr. Kurt Avery performed the first spay/neuter procedures at the new in-house vet clinic. It's a dream come true for Chris Valentine and the Animal Services team: Your Rockwall shelter pets will have in-house vet care for the first time. And the clinic was made possible by generous donations from Rockwall citizens. Thank you!

Meet Mr. Softie

Meet Mr. Grump. Well, that's what Jorge would like you to think. Don't tell him we told you so, but he's really a big softie. If someone were up to no good around your house, one look at Jorge would send them running. You'd be the only one to know he'd been snuggling at your side all night. Jorge is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of January 10, 2011.

A big hunk o' love

This kitty may be a big bundle of love, but he can't catch a break. Snoopy's original owner passed away, then the next person gave him up, citing allergies. This handsome cat wants nothing more than to live with a friendly family. His only requirement? A sturdy lap to get through those long winter nights. Snoopy is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of January 3, 2011.
