Jun 09, 2022
With upcoming forecasted highs of 105+ degrees, it is much hotter much sooner than we would expect right now! With the strain the extreme heat puts on our animals, staff, facilities, the power grid, and pets in our community, we have activated emergency preparations and need your help.
What We Need Now:
Foster, Adopt or Foster-to-Adopt
Help us get animals into cool homes before a potential heat emergency by visiting our Town Lake location between noon and 6 p.m. to foster or adopt. We also have foster-to-adopt options for dogs and adult cats. And in case you missed it, we’re waiving adoption fees until June 16th for ALL our pets, including our many adorable puppies, seniors and special needs pets!
*Surgery deposits still apply for unaltered animals & fees cannot be waived retroactively for adoption special.
