AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Amarillo's city animal shelter is at full capacity, putting more animals at risk of euthanasia.
Amarillo TX - Every week around 80 dogs and cats get euthanized in Amarillo. The Amarillo Humane Society has more dogs and cats come through the doors than in the entire state of Colorado, and adoption isn't the only way you can save a life.
If you can't adopt an animal from the shelter they ask you to consider fostering. It is less commitment and taking them out of the shelter helps their chances of finding a forever home. Fostering takes them off list for euthanasia and gives the shelter more time to find the animal permanent placement.
Amarillo, TX - April 3, 2011
Walking through the shelter at Amarillo Panhandle Humane Association I couldn’t help but be amazed at the beautiful animals they had for adoption. From Poodles to St. Bernard’s, Chorkies (Chihuahua/Yorkie Mutt-i-grees), and Malti-Poos (Maltese/Poodle Mutt-i-Grees). Every color, shape, size and energy level can be found at this and all shelters across the country! We escorted everybody on to the mobile adoption unit and transported them to the Amarillo Fairgrounds where we shared the space with a Ferrari car show. Amarillo Humane offered low cost vaccinations, micro-chipping, and even had a free spay/neuter raffle. We also had support from the local high school marching band that showed up and played a couple of songs for potential adopters in attendance. The fairgrounds also had an equestrian park so there were horses walking around which really added to the good ole’ Texas feeling. After today’s event, we head to the great town of Abilene, TX where we will be working with Rescue The Animals SPCA so please stop by and adopt a new companion.
