Calling all animal lovers!  Now is the time to adopt and help out your local community animal shelter.  With a continued influx of cats, dogs and even kittens, we need adopters to help free up space.  During the SPOOKtacular HOWLoween adoption special, most dogs and all kittens may be adopted for a $31 adoption fee, and adult cats may be adopted for $10.

10/31 – get it?  All adoption fees include spaying/neutering, age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip, and more.

Adult cats are defined as 1 year and older.  Kittens are younger than 1 year.  Dogs that qualify for the $31 fee are medium and large adult dogs.  (Small dogs and puppies are excluded from this special.)

The adoption special runs through All Souls Day on November 1.  Come adopt now, and you’ll be helping out the shelter at the same time!

On this special day, all eligible animals will have their fees waived Georgetown Animal Shelter!. So bring your friends, adopt a new furry family member, and help us #ClearTheShelters.

Kittens in the Library?!

Kittens? In the library? Yes, you read that correctly.

For two days in August, kittens will take over the lobby of the best little public library in Texas, with the goal of playing, snuggling and purring their way into your heart and family.

During this special event, adoption fees will only be $35 per kitten, and only if you adopt from the library.

Kittens will be in residence from 10:30 to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, August 8 and 9.

Kittens may leave directly from the event. We’ll provide cardboard carriers to transport the kittens safely to your home, and send you with a bag of kitten food.  Cash, check and credit card will be accepted.

for more information about this event, contact Shawn Gunnin at shawn.gunnin@georgetown.org.

Shelter maintains no-kill status

For the fourth year in a row, the Georgetown Animal Shelter has achieved a live outcome rate above 90 percent, which means it is considered a no-kill shelter. The save rate was 94 percent for the fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30.

The live outcome rate is notable for an open-admission public shelter. Factors in the 94 percent live outcome rate include a high rate of animal adoptions, the number of animals returned to owners, and the cleanliness of the shelter which results in healthy animals.

Other notable milestones for the 2018 fiscal year include:

  • A record 29 percent of animals returned to their owners, including 384 dogs and 64 cats
  • 888 animals, or 57 percent of all impounded animals, adopted or transferred to rescue groups
  • 648 cats and dogs vaccinated at low-cost vaccine clinics
  • 113 cats spayed or neutered at the free spay/neuter clinics for cats and the animal shelter’s public assistance program
  • 213 volunteers recorded 7,036 volunteer hours

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive.
