Barn Cats

Animal shelter hopes program will reduce its cat population and benefit community

(Continued)

The number of adoptions have gone up significantly over the past year, helped by a number of specials the shelter has had. Deel said the shelter used to have between zero and two adoptions a day and now is averaging about five a day.

“When we had our $25 special over the weekend, which is still going on through Saturday, we had 11 animals adopt out last Saturday, which is just excellent,” Deel said. “Ideally, we want to see that every adoptable animal gets adopted but some of the conditions of the animals we’re receiving is not great.”

To find out more about the Barn Cat program, or the shelter itself, contact the shelter at 817-598-4111 or visit www.weatherfordtx.gov/animal.
