Kerrville Pets Alive puts out call to save shelter animals

Kerr County Animal Services shelter is at capacity after another wave of animals are taken in.

Kerrville Pets Alive is putting out an urgent call for those interested in adoption because the Kerr County Animal Services shelter is full.

KPA president Karen Guerriero said most of the dogs taken in were from a Center Point residence. The issue becomes paramount for KPA because a full shelter could lead to the euthanization of some animals.

"It is raining cats and dogs and our small and inadequate county shelter can't keep up, especially if they spend most of their time picking up trapped wildlife miles out into the county," Guerriero said.


The trapping issue came to a head recently during a county meeting about animal services. KCAS must respond to calls from people who have trapped raccoons, armadillos or other animals they consider pests.

KPA has taken a position that the county shouldn't pick those animals up unless it's rabid.

Here's a look at the current animals available at KCAS.
