A great start (or a great end)

What a way to start the week (or end the month)! Lady Bird is going home with the Holler family!

What a face!

He doesn't flash his smile often, but Wiggles has a happy look only a mother could love. He's very outgoing and playful, and he needs some crate training to make sure he's housebroken. With his winning personality, Wiggles is cute in his own special way. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of February 28, 2011.

Bring on the tummy rubs!

How embarrassing! Scruffy couldn't wait until he got home to start getting tummy rubs. Thanks to the McDonald family for adopting him this afternoon!

Buster's sister Cookie gets a home too!

We love happy endings! The Rathmell family came to the shelter today after seeing Buster's photo in yesterday's Rockwall Herald-Banner as the Pet of the Week. They found out that Buster had been adopted yesterday at Find-a-Friend Friday, so they adopted Buster's sister Cookie instead!

Buster is happy

Thanks for the busy afternoon at Find-a-Friend Friday! One of today's adoptions was Buster, your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet of the Week. He's going home with the Johnson family.

Pure sweetness

Buster may look like your typical black lab, but in reality he's pure sweetness. This one-year-old is incredibly mellow, friendly and gentle. He gets along great with children and other dogs. In other words, Buster is ready to become your perfect family dog. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of February 21, 2011.

What a day!

You were in an adopting frenzy again today, Rockwall! Mr. T and KiKi the cats were adopted. Cuddles, Daphne, Cuddles and one of our new puppies were among the dogs who found new homes today. And the Clark family adopted cute little Dora. Thanks again!

Thanks to our Find-a-Friend Fridays team

Here's the Find-a-Friend Friday team at the Rockwall Petco yesterday afternoon. Pam, Brock, Barbara and Sasha posed with Scruffy, Wiggles, Buster and Dora. We love our volunteers!

Snickers doesn't wait long

Breaking news from the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center: Holden Morse is petting his beautiful new cat Snickers after adopting her a few minutes ago. Thanks to Holden and his mom Stephanie and congratulations to Snickers, who spent less than 24 hours waiting to find a new home.

A handsome dog

This handsome devil is a Belgian Malinois, the new breed of choice for police dog work. That means J.J. is obviously intelligent, attentive and obedient. His main problem is that he can be aggressive toward other dogs. So he probably wouldn't be great around small children either. If you need a solo exercise partner who's as handsome as he is savvy, J.J. fits the bill. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of February 14, 2011.

Thanks again, Rockwall!

You rock, Rockwall! You adopted every pet we had during a special edition of Find-a-Friend Friday today. Droopy, Dora and Brisa are on their way to their new homes. Plus, adorable Nike is pictured here after being adopted by the Wood family. Thanks again!

Celebrate an early Valentine's Day

This is what it's all about. Share some love with your Rockwall shelter pets for Valentine's Day. They'll be handing out Valentine cards during a special Saturday edition of Find-a-Friend Friday this afternoon at the Rockwall Petco from 1-5pm. (Photo of Droopy's paw and Allie Wentzel's hand taken yesterday at Find-a-Friend Friday.)

Not so many black labs left

Remember the five black labs we told you about on Wednesday? Two of them have already been adopted. Thank you! But beautiful dogs like Gracie are still looking for homes. The shelter is open from 8am-4pm today. And join us for a special Saturday edition of Find-a-Friend Friday at the Rockwall Petco from 1-5pm.

Friday, February 11, 2011

Feel the love! It's a special Valentines edition of Find-a-Friend Friday. Scruffy, Nike and Droopy will be handing out Valentines cards both today and tomorrow from 1-5pm at the Rockwall PETCO.

Give some love for Valentine's Day

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Hunter is a labor of love. He's a very head-strong and energetic lab who's been receiving obedience training from Rockwall Animal Services Officer Cap Evans. Hunter is going to be a wonderful companion. He just needs someone who'll be patient while teaching him to behave. In other words, he needs some love. Hunter is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of February 7, 2011.

According to our friends at Petco, the Labrador Retriever was recently named the most popular dog by the AKC for the 20th consecutive year. We have three handsome labs currently available for adoption. Abe, Hunter and Jorge would like to be even more popular! See their info at
