Odessa Animal Control Shelter Hosting "Empty the Shelter" Event

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

The animal control shelter in Odessa is hosting an event this week in an effort to find homes for their pets by next week.

The “Empty The Shelter” event got underway on Monday.

Officials tell NewsWest 9, adoption fees will be waived for all animals at the shelter through the rest of this week.

It's all being done to help the pets find homes before construction starts at the facility next Monday.

The city is also allowing people to foster the animals while the work is being done.

The construction is expected to take about a week.

Anyone who would prefer to foster a pet must complete an application with Odessa Animal Control by this Thursday.
