Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is hosting a free adoption event this Saturday, Oct. 26. The first 50 adoptions of adult dogs, adult cats, kittens and rabbits will be paid for by A+ Federal Credit Union.
Currently, the shelter is 30 dogs and 30 cats over capacity, according to a news release.
"Although 'kitten season,' the time of year shelters take in many stray kittens and pregnant cats, is thought to be a spring/summer season, with the warm start to fall, the shelter is still receiving kittens in need of care," the release said. "Additionally, the shelter is housing over 30 dogs due to pending court cases. These two situations put a strain on shelter staff, volunteers, fosters and resources."
All dogs and cats adopted on Saturday will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and registered, given age-appropriate vaccinations and tested for FeLV (cats) or heartworms (dogs). View adoptable pets at pets.wilco.org/Adopt.
