Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter Has “Adoption Angels” for 31 “Single-Location Cats”
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) was called to assist with the surrender of 44 cats from a single location in Round Rock last week. Once they arrived, our team of professional animal care specialists jumped into action to assess each of the cats’ needs and get them ready for adoption, and now, a generous donor has stepped forward to assist. Of the 44 cats surrendered, 31 are currently available for adoption at WCRAS. Thanks to the donor’s generosity, all 31 of the currently available cats from that single location will be FREE to adopt as a part of our Adoption Angel program. Click to read more.
