"They are clearing the kennels this week so they do have some death row dogs and cats that need homes now so we just want to bring it to the publics' attention this is an ongoing situation," Karen Patterson, President of Fix West Texas said.

If you adopt a dog this week, you'll get first choice of the spay and neuter appointments in October, a free 4DX test, and three months of heartworm prevention. 

Spay and neuters are by appointment only at our mobile MASH style clinics. We will have at least one surgical clinic scheduled each month. All appointments must be secured by a deposit via credit card, unless you contact us at registration@fixwesttexas.org for alternatives.

This is all in an effort to give animals their forever home and to help clear out the shelter.

If you adopt this week, email registration@fixwesttexas.org with a copy of the adoption papers.
