Cocoa is a 6-month-old pointer-Lab puppy. She’s a happy girl who’s great with other dogs and loves to play. Cocoa is a little shy when first meeting new people but warms up quickly. She’s a real sweetheart!
Cocoa and many other dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are available for adoption from Dallas Animal Services, 1818 N. Westmoreland at Interstate 30, just minutes west of downtown Dallas. The shelter is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. The regular adoption cost is $85 for dogs and $55 for cats, but discounts are offered for older animals and those in the shelter longer than 45 days, and to senior citizens and those who adopt two animals at the same time. All dogs are tested for heartworms, and cats have been tested for FeLV. For more information, visit www.DallasAnimalServices.org, or call 214-671-0249.
