After a three-month closure for renovations, PAWS Shelter of Central Texas is set to host a grand opening celebration Aug. 27 at 500 FM 150 E., Kyle, from noon-4 p.m.

There will be booths set up by veterinarians and boarding and grooming services as well as dog and cat adoptions through the national Clear the Shelters Program.

The shelter has serviced Hays County through the Kyle and Dripping Springs locations for more than 30 years. Improvements that have been made to the shelter over the months include a redesign and remodel of the main office; new gates on the dog kennels; and plumbing, electrical, heating, ventilation and air conditioning updates.

"This newly remodeled facility will allow us to better service the citizens of Kyle and the surrounding areas of Central Texas," PAWS Executive Director Melody Hilburn said in a statement. "We project an increase of 20% of animals services from this location, saving an additional 400 animals each year through expansion of our foster and volunteer programs."
