[ARCHIVED] Shelter Launches Campaign to Increase Adoptions

Clear the Shelters

Like many shelters around the nation, there is a summer influx of animals at the Cleburne Animal Shelter. 

To encourage more adoptions, pet adoptions at the Cleburne shelter are only $25 throughout the month of August. Sweetening the deal even more, adoptions will be free on Saturday, Aug. 26. 

“Our shelter is being filled by the minute,“ said Landra Hale, animal services manager. “We've got lots of kittens right now. We've seen lots of puppies come through our shelter.”

Hale stressed the importance of the public spaying and neutering their pet to lessen the number of unwanted litters of animals.

“It’s about being responsible,” she said. “It's already hard for shelters to take care of the number of animals they’ve got.”

She added that for those who can’t adopt a pet, there is a need for volunteers to take pictures, care for the animals and play with them. Interested parties can also consider donating to the shelter.

Hale said that those who adopt from the shelter won’t regret it. The Cleburne adoption fee covers certain health services to help make sure your new pet is in good shape.

“Just come by and take a look at our animals. You won't leave here without a smile on your face,” said Hale.
