Event helps pets find new homes

Temple Animal Services was able to find new homes for 13 cats and nine dogs during the annual Clear the Shelters event on Aug. 14.

Clear the Shelters is part of a national initiative to raise awareness for shelter pets. The Temple Animal Shelter, located at 620 Mama Dog Cir., provides shelter for stray, missing and surrendered animals.

In 2020, the department adopted out more than 860 dogs, 440 cats and reunited 460 animals with their owners. To see a list of animals currently available for adoption, visit templetx.gov/animalservices.
