Animal Shelter joins Clear The Shelters event on Aug. 17

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is teaming up with KXAN for the fifth annual Clear The Shelters pet adoption drive Aug. 17 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Clear The Shelters is an annual national adoption event spearheaded by NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.

During the event, the shelter, 110 W.L. Walden Drive, will waive adoption fees for dogs and cats older than 1 year and reduce pet adoption fees to $17 for younger cats and dogs.

“I’m excited to participate in Clear The Shelters for the first time,” Animal Services Manager April Haughey said. “We are a small shelter; so every adoption greatly impacts us.”

A pet adoption tracker will be posted at cleartheshelters.com and will show the total number of pets adopted from participating shelters. Since 2015, the adoption drive has resulted in more than 250,000 adoptions nationwide.

For more information about the Clear The Shelters adoption drive, visit kxan.com.

Kittens at the Library on Aug. 8-9

Kittens from the Georgetown Animal Shelter will take over the lobby of Georgetown Public Library on Aug. 8-9 with the goal of playing, snuggling and purring their way into a new family. Kittens will be available for adoption from the library, 402 W. Eighth St., from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.

Visitors may cuddle, play with and adopt kittens at the library. Adoption fees are $35 per kitten during the event, and kittens will be able to leave directly from the event. Cardboard carriers will be provided.

Georgetown Animal Shelter is the municipal animal shelter for the City of Georgetown and takes in all stray and surrendered animals from within the city limits. Even as the city grows exponentially, the shelter has maintained a save rate of 90 percent or more for the past four years, classifying the shelter as a no-kill shelter.

The animal shelter currently has a large number of kittens and cats, and staff hope the event at the library will help them find new homes.

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive. For more information about the shelter, visit pets.georgetown.org.

Twenty-seven bats captured inside buildings in February

Spring is the time when Mexican free-tailed bats arrive in Central Texas. City of Georgetown Animal Services officers captured 27 bats inside buildings during the month of February. All bats tested negative for carrying rabies.

“If you remember nothing else – do not touch the bat, and call animal control,” says John Torrez, Animal Control Supervisor for the City of Georgetown.

On the occasion that a bat does enter a building, many will exit on their own, if given the opportunity. Turn off any interior lights and allow a clear pathway such as an open door for them to escape.

Bats hanging on the outside of buildings are common in the area and, if left alone, will usually fly away at dusk.

If a bat lands on the ground, it has difficulty becoming airborne again and usually will attract attention from children and pets in the area. Make sure to keep your pets up-to-date on rabies vaccinations and close off pet doors at night. Remind children if they see a bat on the ground, to leave it alone and alert an adult.

If there is a possibility of either pet or human exposure to a bat, please contact Animal Services immediately. Animal Services will collect the bat to submit it for testing at the Texas Department of Health to verify the absence of the rabies virus.

To report a bat within the city limits of Georgetown, call the 24-hour number for the Georgetown Police Department at (512) 930-3510. An animal control officer will respond to the report.

Georgetown Animal Services and Animal Shelter is located at 110 Walden Dr., Georgetown, Texas, 78626. Contact the shelter at (512) 930-3592, by email at animalsvc@georgetown.org or online at pets.georgetown.org.
