WILLIAMSON COUNTY (KXAN) — Is the bird the word? If you’ve ever considered adopting a feathered friend, Williamson County is the place to look.
There are currently over 40 roosters, hens, and ducks at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. The shelter is hosting a $5 adoption event to help them find new homes.
All birds, medium/large adult dogs, and adult cats are only $5 to adopt during this special. Interested adopters can schedule a priority service appointment or visit the shelter from noon until 6 p.m. daily. The special is for a limited time only.
The shelter received a call for assistance to aid over 40 animals seized from a single location earlier this month. The court awarded the animals to the shelter for adoption.
“We believe all animals deserve the opportunity to have a second chance,” said Misty Valenta, director of animal services. “Whether we are caring for a cat, dog, chicken or duck, we want to help them find a home that provides them with all they need.”
WCRAS is open seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m. and is located at 1855 SE Inner Loop in Georgetown.
