Empty the shelter day planned

August 7, 2014 by Phil Major

August is one of the most difficult months to adopt pets, but the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter has plans to make this August one of the hottest adoption months yet.

Aug. 16 the Weatherford-Parker County Animal Shelter will work in conjunction with 33 other animal shelters in the Metroplex to host an “Empty the Shelter Day” event across North Texas. For this one-day event, the WPCAS will waive all fees associated with adoptions for approved adopters. That’s correct, adopt for free. And to make it easier for potential adopters, the shelter will be opening early at 10 a.m. and will stay open until 5 p.m.

As always, adoptions from WPCAS will include the animal’s spay or neuter, rabies and other core vaccinations, microchip, and discounted pet insurance from
