I am delighted that MYETX has given our local shelter in Palestine a spot on their site! This will certainly help the many animals awaiting the forever homes they deserve. Many thanks to Dana for helping spread the word about BARC & the Wednesday's Pet program! No doubt that it takes a village...

My post was in response to the person who said they couldn't find any available pets to adopt. Their post is not here anymore...?

Try and enter your zip code. That will bring up many adoptable pets. Best is to go to the shelter nearest you if you can or visit or call a local pet store (Stores mainly have cats though). Petsense in Palestine has precious kittens right now needing homes! Tammy is a foster mom and has many dogs needing homes. Find her at She lists her phone number there. Also there's a wonderful rescue gal named Jacki who often comes in from Frankston with precious puppies at the Palestine Walmart. Her # is 903-714-4687. If you're looking for something in particular just call the local shelter and tell them. They will call you if they have anything you might like. Good Luck and thanks for wanting to adopt!
