It's that time of year again!
We are proud to announce our second annual
Bringing Home Santa Paws for Christmas.

We ask for our local businesses to sponsor the adoption of a dog or cat.
What Sponsors do: Sponsors cover the vetting side of the adoption
Female Cats Sponsor fee is $122
Male Cats Sponsor fee is $106
This leaves cat adopters to only have to pay the $20 adoption fee itself.
Female Dogs (0-30lbs) sponsor fee is $134
Female Dogs (31-60lbs) sponsor fee is $150
Female Dogs (61-100lbs) sponsor fee is $161
Female Dogs (101+lbs) sponsor fee is $181

Male Dogs (0-50lbs) sponsor fee is $$124
Male Dogs (51-100lbs) sponsor fee is $132
Male Dogs (101+lbs) sponsor fee is $142
This leaves dog adopters to only have to pay the $40 adoption fee itself.

Our goal is to find all the shelter pets a home for Christmas. This event will run until the end of December.

If you are interested in sponsoring an animal for Bringing Home Santa Paws for Christmas please contact us at the shelter.

275 days ago we met a sweet boy I named Lucky.
Lucky came in skin and bones, with an old fracture in his rear leg.

His choices were attempt to save the leg since it was already healing, but the muscles needed to be helped and the infection in the leg needed addressed or to amputate the leg.

I decided to give his leg a chance, so I did hydrotherapy on his leg, and he got lots of leg exercises. (Even coming in at random hours after closing to work on his leg) slowly you were able to see the change, not just his leg, but his whole personality. He went from a dog who just wanted to lay around, sleep and eat to a happy, energetic, ready to adventure guy. Sadly his energy is what made most people overlook him. Not seeming to understanding he just needed to some decompression and he would be the best dog ever, until now. A few days ago a family came in and fell in love, they have another dog, so of course they had to come back to do a meet and greet. The meet and greet went well too! We were so excited and hopeful (even nervous because someone finally saw the beautiful heart we did here at the shelter all along and prayed so hard he would be the one). I agreed to allow them to foster and give him a trial run just to ensure he would fit in well with them at home and their day to day life. Well today they came into finalize his adoption! Tears are flowing today, happy ones. We try our best to give every adoptable dog a chance for this precious moment. The happiest of happy tails Lucky. We love you so much! Going to miss seeing his happy face but he’s finally safe and in a home full of love ❤️

Everyone saw the post of the border collie that came in as a stray yesterday, well he has a bit of a story.

You see, he’s from Friendship, AR.
He went missing yesterday morning, and somehow ended up here in Texarkana, an hour and fifteen minutes from his home.

We can only guess at how he got here, but this is a good reason to show that if you find a dog, to not take it so far from where you found it.

And if they were trying to steal him, well shame on them!

He was so happy to see his momma!

Such a sweet reunion and we are so happy we were able to be a part of it.

Another black tie adoption! We are so happy to see this baby get adopted, happy tails sweet girl!

Also, a big thank you to PetSmart in Texarkana for donating all of these cute sweaters & jackets for the dogs here at the shelter! They are greatly appreciated!

Good Morning Texarkana!
If you haven't been outside yet, let us tell you, its cold, wet and just upright miserable weather. So IF your animals must be outside, please ensure they have proper shelter ( That's 4 solid walls with an opening for them to enter/exit, a floor and a roof) they would probably also appreciate some hay and or blankets. We really do not want to have to get out in this weather and issue citations, but there will be 0 tolerance for animals without proper shelter.

So unless you want a cold ACO knockling on your door, make sure you keep your pets warm.

Thank you
Director of Animal Services
Kayla Tucker

As the weather begins to get colder, we have realized we are running low on blankets for the animals here at the shelter. If you have any old comforters or blankets that you could donate our dogs & cats would greatly appreciate them! Thanks in advance!

Our Story

Animal Care and Adoption Center has a long and rocky history. After changing hands a few times, ACAC now belongs to the city of Texarkana Arkansas as a department all it’s own. ACAC takes in animals from Arkansas citizens of Texarkana. Lots of animals pass through these doors with the goal being to serve the public but also to see as many pets find their new or current homes. ACAC is a kill shelter but we strive to euthanize as few as possible.
