The Tails of Two Cities Day Planner is the main annual fundraiser for Texarkana Animal League. The first edition was in 2008.
Individuals and/or businesses in our community have the opportunity to be underwriters or tab or page sponsors in our day planner. As part of a sponsorship or underwriting, each page or tab will highlight a photo(s) of their pet(s) or any animal they want to make a star (some honor rescued dogs or cats), their sponsor name and/or business name, a meaningful quote and any special recognition or information they want to include. This is a great way to do a memorial or honorarium for a special pet or person (animal lover especially) or even publish the story about a rescue or foster animal. And of course every sponsor/underwriter receives a copy (or copies) of the Day Planner.
Day Planner sponsors and underwriters are vital to TAL & provide the needed funds for our programs such as the Spay and Neuter Program (SNAP) and Dog & Cat Foster and Adoption Programs, vaccinations to the local Animal Care and Adoption Center and much more.
In the fall of each year an Unleashing Event is held to present the new Day Planner. Over the last 9 years, each year a different local artist has donated an original painting to be used for the cover art and be the premier silent auction item at the Unleashed event.
With your support as underwriters and sponsors for the day planner, we will be able to continue to provide the following programs:
Low Cost Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) for Bowie, Cass, Little River, and Miller counties
Vaccination Program – Vaccines are supplied to Texarkana’s local shelter, Animal Care and Adoption Center (ACAC)
Adoptions – Monthly dog adoption events at PetSmart and ongoing cat adoptions in the PetSmart Cat Adoption Center
Rescue Assistance Program (RAP) – Financial grant program for other local animal welfare organizations
Community Education Program – Visit local schools and community centers to provide education about various animal related topics
You can make your own pet a star as an underwriter or page sponsor, and/or you may choose to highlight a foster animal who needs their own special forever home. Photos and information for sponsored foster animals will be provided by TAL.
Thank you for your generous support!
