Diesel is one year old, friendly and lovable. He’s a pitty/shepherd-mix and a true family pet that deserves to be out of the shelter environment. He’s at the main shelter; his identification number is 364999967.

There is so much love at the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. Nearly 600 dogs and cats, kittens and puppies are currently in the shelter and each of them is waiting to meet you during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, Sept. 14-16.

Every pet that comes through the doors of the Fort Worth Animal Shelter has a story, often one of being abandoned and left to survive wandering the streets in our city. It’s the goal of the shelter to find a loving home for each of these incredible pets.

Adoption fees are reduced to $10 during this event. Fees include an initial medical examination, initial vaccinations, city license, micro-chip and spay/neuter services.

Check out all three adoption locations:

  • Chuck Silcox Animal Care & Adoption Center, 4900 Martin St. (open Friday-Sunday).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Hulen, 4800 S.W. Loop 820 (I-20 at Hulen).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Alliance, 2901 Texas Sage Trail (I-35W at Heritage Trace).
