Celia Hays is a former teacher whose Rockwall County roots go back to the early days of pioneer settlement. Her grandparents donated a plot of their homestead, located north of the city of Rockwall, for the Liberty Grove School. Ms. Hays graduated from Rockwall High School in 1924 and began her teaching career in a one-room schoolhouse in Rockwall County in 1926. She retired in 1974 after 42 years in the classroom.

After her retirement, she became the librarian for the Rockwall County Library, then housed in the basement of the historical courthouse on the square. She also accrued more than 4,200 volunteer hours at Lake Pointe Medical Center. Ms. Hays passed away at the age of 92.

Hello! My name is Blue, formerly know as Blue ray! I am a 10 year old, male, American Bulldog/Lab mix and weigh close to 80 Lbs. I was recently surrendered by my owners and am now looking for my FURever home! I love to swim and take walks! I am house broken and crate trained! I have been known to be good with most kids and other dogs, however, I can be a bit timid at times. I would do best in a home that has a calm, and quite atmosphere. Due to my sometimes timid behavior, it is highly recommended that you do a meet and greet with me before adoption. Especially if you have other dogs or children in the home. My adoption fee is $125 which includes my neuter, rabies vaccination, microchip and heart worm test! I am heart worm negative.

All animals, unless otherwise noted in their description, are at 1825 Airport Rd. in Rockwall, TX.

Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 9 am to 6 pm and Saturdays 9 am to 5 pm.

For questions, please call 972-771-7750 ext. 1 or email info@RockwallAdoptions.com.
