Pflugerville Animal Welfare Services (PAWS) to open new facility
On Tuesday the City Council heard a presentation about Pflugerville Animal Welfare Services. PAWS has been busy getting ready for the opening of a brand new animal intake facility which is slated to open on February 28 at 11:30 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in partnership with the Friends of Pflugerville Animal Shelter and Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce.
In addition to the intake facility, PAWS continues to provide great services to our furry friends in the city. PAWS is very proud of a 98% save rate as animals who come to the facility end up in loving homes whether they are adopted or are returned back to their owners.
PAWS has many programs for animal welfare in the city. They are very successful thanks to numerous volunteers and staff that worked tirelessly to keep our animal friends happy. If you’re looking to adopt be sure to visit Pflugerville TX.gov/adopt to see the many cats and dogs ready to go home with you.
