Adoption Partners should receive a confirmation e-mail. If you do not receive this e-mail, it means that the animal has not yet been tagged for your group.

Adoption Partners must only send people that are on their current “pull lists” so that the correct animal goes to the correct Adoption Partner; if the person is not on the current pull list, please have the president of your group immediately send an email to lynn.trotter@arlingtontx.govsusan.waits@arlingtontx.gov stating that you wish to add that person. Please make sure that your representative has the animal’s correct Animal ID # at the time of pick-up.

No Adoption Partner will transfer an animal accepted from AAS to another group (rescue group, agency, organization, shelter, sanctuary etc…) that is not an AAS approved placement partner, without the approval of AAS.

Groups that wish to utilize transporters that are not members of their group now have the option of completing the Transfer Out Contract. Group member will need to send an e-mail with their complete name, address and phone number and request that the transfer out contract be sent to them. It will need to be scanned and e-mailed back (or faxed) with a copy of the driver’s license of the person signing the contract as the group member.

Dallas: 2 Neglected Dogs Need Rescue Group or Permanent Home

Reposted from Jonnie England:

This is a personal appeal on behalf of my cousin, Scott Carpenter.  Scott owns a rental condo in NE Dallas. The tenant told Scott he was going out of town, and when Scott went to check on the unit, he found the tenant’s two dogs living in terrible, filthy conditions. Scott has been in touch with the tenant, who has agreed to surrender the dogs to avoid being reported for animal cruelty.  Scott has taken the dogs into his home, but has three large dogs of his own and cannot keep them.   

Below is information about these sweet dogs.  If you can help or want more information, please contact Scott Carpenter –iamseeking_2000@yahoo.com – 972-342-6677. 




Piper: 
·         Black Lab mix
·         3 years old
·         Neutered
·         approx. 50 pounds
·         great with adults but due to his rambunctiousness, he's better with children 10 and up
·         House trained
·         best paired with another dog. 



Macaroni):
·         (Black) Blue Healer/ Terrier mix
·         8 months to 1 year old
·         approx. 20 pounds
·         NOT neutered
·         great with adults and children of all ages
·         Partially house trained, will only go in the house if he has no way of getting outside
·         best paired with another dog.

These dogs do very well together, and would love to go to the same home, though they can manage without one another.

Both dogs are also trained to use doggy doors to go outside.

I appreciate any help you can give these sweeties.  They deserve good homes.  Please network and share with your contacts.

Foster dog, Sophie, needs home as only dog but loves kitties!

Hi! My name is SOPHIE and I am the sweetest girl ever (or so my foster mom tells me)! I am a 4 year old Lab mix and I am SOOOOO ready to find my forever home.  I need a home where I can be an only dog however I am a big fan of kitties and kids!

I was rescued from a local shelter where they just had an over abundance of big dogs so I am so lucky my foster mom picked me! I love to go for car rides and my favorite place to go is the place with the "golden arches" out front where I get my favorite treat! I know to potty outside and I know basic commands (I will do anything for a treat!) I am currently an indoor dog only because I am a couch potato but I am also really good at letting my foster mommy know if anyone comes into our yard!

I am spayed, micro-chipped,  current on Heartworm preventative and up to date on my shots  now all I need is a home where I can be a spoiled rotten only dog! Could that be with you?

If Sophie could be your “one and only” please e-mail Kelly at kelbond@sbcglobal.net to meet her!

Age: 4 years old
Weight: 88 lbs

Update: Medical Info - 6 Yr Old Yellow Lab Mix, owner passed and looking for new home



This is sweet Tammy. Sadly, her owner passed away in November and the owner's daughters have been caring for her but cannot keep her long term. They are hoping to find her a new home with a very loving family. Tammy is a very sweet dog, yellow lab mix, about 6 years old, spayed, and she has a soft and shiny coat. 

Tammy's previous family members included a boxer mix and Chihuahua and she got along great with the. She has a very happy demeanor and is eager to please. Walks well on a leash and understands commands like sit and stay. Loves car rides and loves to lay on a lap! 

Recent trip to the vet went well. She is spayed, no heartworms, current on shots, and got a clean bill of health! Vet records are available. 

If you can give her a good home, or know someone who can, please contact Janet Kriger Moore at 210-325-2410.
