GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — The Georgetown Animal Shelter is shutting its doors for two more days due to staffing shortages this week.

The shelter initially said last week it would be closed Sunday and Monday. But it said on Monday the shelter would stay closed through Wednesday.

The shelter anticipates reopening Thursday, according to a release.

While the shelter is closed, residents are encouraged to speak with neighbors and post on social media if they find a lost cat or dog. You can also take the animal to a Georgetown fire station to have it scanned for a microchip.

If you or your neighbors are not in a position to temporarily care for the animal while the shelter is closed, you can call animal control at (512) 930-3510, ext. 6.

Shelter staff said with this plan and the community’s help, “We can make sure the animals in Georgetown still get the care they need.”
