Have you adopted a shelter pet from Arlington Animal Services ? If the answer is yes , we want to hear from you !

We want to spread the love and share your pets adoption story on our social media outlets ! Just send us your favorite pictures of your beloved pet , when you adopted them from the shelter , and a little of their story and what they mean to you ! Then be on the look out for their special spotlight on Facebook , Instagram , and Twitter ! Help us spread the message to adopt and get our shelter pets into their loving forever homes ! Pictures and story can be submitted by emailing animalservices @ arlingtontx . gov ( Subject : AAS Alumni Story ) or send us a message on Facebook !
Rescue Partner Spotlight ! Whether it is rescuing bottle baby kittens who need to be fed and cared for every few hours , or working with a fearful dog who needs help learning to trust people , or taking an injured pet who urgently needs out of the shelter for further medical treatment and care , the rescue partners at Arlington Animal Services make a difference for our shelter pets daily ! The staff at AAS are so grateful to have a growing list of organizations who will take animals into their care from the ones who need it the most , to the ones who just need a little extra TLC outside of the shelter walls . We want to say , THANK YOU !
