The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter will be offering free dog adoptions from Friday, Nov. 17, through Sunday, Nov. 19, to make space in its kennels.
The shelter has been experiencing extreme overcrowding for months on end and is desperate to make space for the new dogs being brought to the shelter. Free dog adoptions are a way to help make space and allows the shelter to continue its life-saving mission of being a safe haven for the lost and unwanted pets of its jurisdiction.
“The shelter is currently double capacity for dogs, and so we are looking to the community for double the amount of help. We hope these free adoptions bring happiness to everyone this holiday season,” said Misty Valenta, animal services director.
All adoptions come with spay or neuter surgery, a microchip the shelter will register for the adopter, all age-appropriate shots, and a voucher for a free wellness exam with a participating veterinary clinic. Residents can preview all the adoptable pets at www.wilcotx.gov/pets.
The shelter is open daily from noon to 6 p.m., excluding Thursday, Nov. 23, when the shelter will be closed to the public for Thanksgiving holiday.
