POWSissy is a 1-year-old female brown and white tiny chihuahua.  She’s been at the shelter since Feb. 25, so her adoption fee has been waived.  She’s been vaccinated, microchipped and spayed.  She’s very gentle and sweet but a little frightened in the shelter environment.  She will blossom in a home of her own.  Please visit her at Dallas Animal Services, 1818 Westmoreland Roa, and ask for A826304.

The Adoption Center is open 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday. All adopted pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Standard adoption fees are $85 for dogs and $55 for cats.  They also offer discounts on adoption fees for pets over 6 years old, to any senior citizen who adopts a pet and to anyone adopting more than one pet at a time.
