WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TEXAS - After KVUE aired a story about a local and crowded animal shelter waiving adoption fees in order to free up space during the holidays, more than 100 dogs and cats found their forever homes over the weekend.
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter waived adoption fees from Black Friday to Cyber Monday as a part of the national "Home for the Pawlidayz" campaign. And the shelter needed the help. At the time the story aired, they were caring for 174 cats, but only had 93 cat kennels. They had 110 dogs, but only had 86 dog kennels -- if the weather permitted it.
The shelter reached out to KVUE following the airing of the story, saying 106 of 284 animals were adopted over the weekend. They said that frees up space for other animals in need.
So all of us from KVUE would like to thank you all for giving these animals loving homes!
