Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter Asks Community for Assistance

The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) is experiencing a life-saving crisis in medium-to-large adult dogs and is requesting the assistance of the local community to get through it. Compared to last year at this time, the WCRAS has taken in 200 more dogs, creating a critical issue as they have run out of space to house medium-to-large adult dogs. To help make space, the shelter is offering free adoptions for all medium-to-large adult dogs. For those not able to adopt at this time, fostering is available. To see all of the adoptable dogs that qualify for this special, go to the WCRAS website.
