For the second time this summer, the Fort Worth Animal Shelter is over capacity with more pets arriving at the shelter every day.
The week surrounding the July Fourth holiday is traditionally the busiest period of the year for animal shelters; many pets get scared and run due to fireworks. Many end up in shelters.
The shelter is caring for about 610 dogs and 100 cats, all of whom are waiting to be adopted into their forever home. If there was ever a time to find the dog or cat of your dreams, now would be great since there are so many too choose from.
Fort Worth Animal Care and Control has reduced adoption fees through July 31 to $17.76. The fee includes an initial medical examination, rabies vaccination, city license, micro-chip and spay/neuter.
The main shelter campus at 4900 Martin St. in southeast Fort Worth is open seven days a week at noon. The city has satellite pet adoption centers at the PetSmart at I-35W at Heritage Trace Parkway in far north Fort Worth and at Southwest Loop 820 at Hulen Street in south Fort Worth.
