Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter joins the ranks of shelters in using facial recognition technology to identify lost dogs and cats.

The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is participating in the nationwide pet adoption drive Saturday where all available dogs, cats, puppies and kittens can be adopted for free.

The WCRAS has been participating in the Clear the Shelter adoption drive since 2015. Last year, 80 animals were adopted during the event, according to the shelter.

Those looking for a cat can go to the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, 1855 SE Inner Loop, for adoptable cats and kittens, while those wanting a dog can go to the WCRAS Canine Corral, 425 E. Morrow St., for adoptable dogs and puppies. Both locations will be open between the hours of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Regular adoption fees are $2 for adult large/medium dogs and adult cats, $10 small dogs, $25 kittens and $75 puppies.

All adopted cats and kittens are required to leave in a carrier. Adopters who do not bring their own carrier can purchase one for $4.

In order to submit an application, adopters will be requested to register for Petango.
