Looking for your fur-ever friend? He or she just might be waiting for you during PetSmart's National Adoption Week Feb. 28-March 6!

Join ARC and dog rescues Pause for Paws and Sierra's K9 Rescue and Rehab to meet that someone special who will always be glad to see you. Maybe it's Jupiter, a playful and inquisitive kitten with a strong purr that begins when you pick him up or start petting him. Or maybe it's Autumn, a sweet but fearless kitten who loves to be anywhere her human is.

If a dog is more your thing, then consider Lana, Twink, Fanta or Tigger. Large or small, there's a dog for y'all!

Cat adoptions will take place Monday, Wednesday-Friday 5-6:30 and Saturday-Sunday 1-4:30. Dog adoptions will take place Saturday 1-4:30.

We hope to see you at Stone Ridge PetSmart, 21019 US Highway 281!

"My baby is lost! He got out and we hadn't put his collar back on after his bath!" or "She just slipped out the door so quickly!"

We see posts like these all the time unfortunately. There are a couple of things you can do, however, to help your fur-baby find its way home quickly.

1. Microchip your pet.
2. Register the microchip and keep it updated with your current contact information.

Why take these steps? Because microchips work.

Just yesterday, an ARC adopter's cat slipped out the door. Thanks to his microchip and the work of a kind rescuer, he's back home, safe and sound. The rescuer found the cat and had him scanned for a microchip. ARC was contacted as a backup contact on the chip. We then were able to arrange a happy reunion.

If you find a stray dog or cat, please get it scanned (most vets will do it for free). You can look up the microchip information by going to https://old.petmicrochiplookup.org/ and then the microchip company can help reach out to the microchip's registered owner.

Welcome home Coconut! We ❤️ her so much 🥰
Hi, I hope it’s ok to post here, as fellow cat lovers will see this. ❤️ I’m reaching out because I have an older kitten (eating solid kibble) who is in desperate need of a home, shelter, or foster by Thursday night (12/23), or Friday night if she has surgery tomorrow. I rescued her from outside my apartment yesterday. She was crying because one of her back legs is fully broken in two places; the vet has recommended amputation ASAP (I can try very hard to help raise the money). This of course means she’ll need an indoor forever home. I am disabled and housebound with serious chronic illness; it’s truly impossible for me to care for her. 😔 I’m also on SSDI and unable to fully afford the surgery. I would be absolutely heartbroken to have to have her put down, so I’m looking for help. She is a beautiful kitten, white with grey tabby patches. She is very shy and scared (but did not hiss or scratch at the vet; she just needs some love to slowly warm up). Please help me if you can, or provide insider suggestions; thank you so, so much! I can be contacted by email at [email protected]. ❤️ (Pic is not her, but a very similar kitten; I haven’t taken her picture yet.)

Just wanted to say we love our Grayson so much. This silver tabby basically runs the house - and is the boss of everyone - including our German Shepherd who lets him sleep in her bed sometimes. At first, Grayson was cautious around her and unsure. But these days, he seeks her out to be near her at night when the house has gone to bed. He has the best personality

💔HENRY IS STILL MISSING💔 Henry was last seen on 11/30/2020 in my Brothers home @ 106 Paul St. San Antonio, TX. 78203. I believe Henry was stolen. He is a 5 year old black and white Landseer. His hair has grown out a lot. Henry is neutered and microchipped but his previous owner passed away. Henry was then given to my brother, Charles Dailey. After losing both of our parents, Henry is all my brother has left. If you see Henry please call.... Rosanna Dailey @ 281-506-5242. Or Charles Dailey @ 210-577-1419 $ Reward no questions asked.
