American Dog Rescue continues their "America's Best Tails" contest in this special episode with three more contestants: Laura Alton
for Great Dane Rescue of North Texas, Mary Spencer for Dallas Companion Animal Project and Sally Seegers for Collin County Humane Society.
About 200 people came for the Grand Reopening to see the facility and visit with the animals. Food, fun and pet
adoptions made for a great afternoon. CCHS contracted with the City of Rockwall in July to operate the facility
– one of about five in the United States that is privatized.

The Collin County Humane Society emerged as the top dog in a bid to
assume management of the Rockwall animal shelter as the city proceeds with
privatization plans to cut costs. The $410,000 contract will put the Collin County
nonprofit at the helm of the shelter starting Aug. 1, 2012.
