Free adoptions at Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter mark midpoint in ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge
The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) is closing in on its 1000th adoption towards the goal to save 2,000 lives in 92 days.
In order to reach that goal, WCRAS will be offering free adoptions for all adult dogs, cats and kittens adopted from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 19. Puppies will be available for a $75 adoption fee.
Saturday marks the midpoint in the nationally recognized ASPCA Rachael Ray $100k Challenge. The competition is aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. The WCRAS was chosen as one of only 50 participating shelters across the nation.
"The Challenge has raised the bar for our staff and volunteers. We are looking to reach 1,000 adoptions by the end of the day on Saturday," said Cheryl Schneider, Williamson County animal services director. "Ultimately, every life saved places another deserving pet in a good home, and moves us closer to our goal."
The Challenge midpoint event will also feature a low cost vet clinic from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the shelter lobby, 1855 SE Inner Loop, Georgetown.
