Noah’s Ark: The Original Animal Shelter

Maybe it hasn’t been 40 days and 40 nights of rain, but it feels like it at the Georgetown Animal Shelter.

dog of week 5-30-15-500The last time the shelter had a 40 Dogs in 40 Days campaign, they did it for kennel renovations. This time, it’s due to overcrowding. Since the beginning of May, the dog population has tripled from 13 to 40 in a shelter that has only 26 kennels.

“The 40 Dogs in 40 Days program was so successful and had such great community support, so we thought we’d do a spin-off and ask for the community’s help in opening up some kennels once again,”  according to Jessie Pierce, marketing coordinator

As before, adoption fees have been decreased to $40, which covers spaying and neutering, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipping, free vet visit and a small bag of food.

Between dogs being surrendered at the end of the school year and lots of stray dogs picked up during the storms, staff has seen a constant stream of new dogs coming in, but few dogs being adopted out.

The campaign will last until June 15 and possibly longer.

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 WL Walden Drive and is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. The shelter is closed on Wednesday. Contact the shelter at (512) 930-3592 or animalsvc@georgetown.org.

  “The proceeds from Art for Animals have a huge positive impact on the   animals at the shelter.  We were recently able to upgrade our adoption trailer to better showcase the dogs and increase their chances of finding forever families. The Friends is able to provide equipment and services to the shelter to improve the lives of the animals while they are there, and to help animals throughout the community,” said Christy Hullum, last year’s president of the Friends group.

Donations of framed artwork and hand-crafted items, such as pottery,  jewelry, and glass work, will be accepted through April 17. Other donations being accepted for the auction include gift baskets, travel packages, and other unique items. Paintings made by the animals at the shelter also will be auctioned.  Donors will receive two tickets to the event.

To make a donation for the auction, contact the animal shelter at (512)930-3592. Donations may be taken to the Georgetown Animal Shelter at 110 W.L. Walden Drive. The shelter website is pets.georgetown.org.
