Looking to add a feline to your family? Visit Plano Animal Shelter before the month’s end and provide a home to an adult cat for half of the usual adoption fees.
June is the National Adopt a Cat Month—one of the events the Plano Animal Shelter is participating in this summer. The next big promotion will take place in July.
On July 23, the Plano shelter will participate in Clear the Shelters, a nationwide event with hundreds of participating shelters across the country. Approximately 400 shelters participated in last year’s Clear the Shelters events, resulting in nearly 20,000 animals finding homes.
But the Plano shelter is active about promoting adoption in the community on a regular basis.
Animal Services Director Jamey Cantrell says the shelter usually holds one remote adoption event a week. On Wednesday the shelter held a remote adoption event at the Maribel Davis Library. It’s where Kimberly Dueboay and partner Molly Ray found Esmerelda Jade—a chocolate lab-pit bull mix puppy named for her “beautiful green” eyes.
Next Wednesday, June 22, the shelter will hold a remote adoption event at Parr Library.
As of Wednesday, there were 290 animals needing homes in Plano’s animal shelter. But Cantrell says that number that changes every day as more pets find homes and more animals come to the shelter in need of one.
