angelAngel was rescued from a hoarding situation. Operation Kindness was able to take Angel and her sister Rihanna in hopes of finding loving and adoptive forever homes for them. Angel is a sweet little bitty chihuahua only about 5 pounds. She is very quiet and just wants to be held and loved. Both these girls would probably do better in a calm household. Angel and Rihanna are very close and find comfort in each other. It would be great if someone could adopt both of these girls together.

Angel and other pets are available for adoption from Operation Kindness, 3201 Earhart Drive, Carrollton. The no-kill shelter is open six days: Monday, 3-8 p.m.; closed Tuesday; Wednesday, 3-8 p.m.; Thursday, noon-8 p.m.; Friday, noon-5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. The cost is $110 for cats, $135 for kittens, $150 for dogs over 1 year, and $175 for puppies. The cost includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs, leukemia and FIV test for cats, and more. Those who adopt two pets at the same time receive a $20 discount.
