A long thank you

We hope you'll indulge us in a long Christmas thank you. First of all, thanks to all of you who've adopted a Rockwall shelter pet. We wouldn't be here without you. Thank you to Dr. Keith Webb and everyone at Pet Doctor. They believe in our mission and have saved the lives of so many pets this year.

Thank you to our adoption and transfer partners, like the Animal Hospital of Fate, Pappy's Pet Lodge/Red Wolf Resort, the Rockwall Petco, the Firewheel Petco in Garland, the Town East Petco in Mesquite, Gina King and everyone at Ponderosa Pet Resort, Ridge Road Animal Hospital and Stonebridge Veterinary Hospital. We fully understand our shelter is often difficult to work with, so we ask your patience in sticking with us.

Thank you to the incredible fosters and volunteers who've saved a record number of lives this year. Once again, we know it's hard to deal with the shelter sometimes, but we thank you, love you and send you our deepest appreciation.

For Mayor David Sweet and the Rockwall City Council, we have nothing but respect and gratitude. You remain one of only two city councils in Texas to vote for saving lives. Thank you to everyone who has donated so generously to save the lives of ill and injured pets. Thank you to Juan Hernandez for being a friend to volunteers, customers and pets alike, and for all you've done to make No Kill Rockwall a reality.

And thank you to the Rockwall shelter pets. We know we're not perfect, but all of us are working so hard to find you the loving home you so richly deserve. Merry Christmas to all of you.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you for making this the happiest holiday season ever for your Rockwall shelter pets!

Hamilton has been a good boy this year, Santa

Since it's Christmas week, we're spotlighting our special pets who need extra-special homes for the holidays. Hamilton is an incredibly patient and gentle mastiff mix who's about five or six years old. Even though he's completely blind, he lives life to the fullest. He's fully house- and crate-trained, gentle and loving. He'd even be a perfect companion for those long walks around the neighborhood. As part of our Free for the Holidays campaign, Hamilton's adoption fee has been waived. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for Christmas Week 2011.

Are you listening Santa?

Christmas is just around the corner, so Santa is making his final evaluations. Mitzah doesn't have anything to worry about, because she's been a very good girl this year.

All she wants for Christmas is to be with you and your family for the holidays. Are you listening Santa? Mitzah is your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 12, 2011.

Adopt your own TV star

Yes, he's handsome. Winston's intelligent too. He's such a great dog that he was recently featured on The CW33 News. But he's the first to admit that he's not Mr. Perfect. He hates cats. He's picky about which dogs he gets along with. And he's very strong-willed. But if you're the type who's a good pack leader, you won't find a better exercise partner - or good looking companion - than Winston. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of December 5, 2011.
