Employees at the Regional Animal Adoption Center say the first month in business has gone by smoothly – in the first month of operations, the center facilitated 83 adoptions.
City spokeswoman Rachel Reynolds said the city is excited to see growth after partnering with the Humane Society of North Texas.
The center, located at 330 Rufe Snow Drive in Keller, opened in May and services Southlake, Colleyville, Roanoke and Westlake. Dogs and cats can be adopted for $50 to $150 and include vaccinations, deworming, tests, spaying and neutering, microchips and a leash or carrier.
Humane Society facility director Nelda Corbell said the center on Keller Parkway generally adopts between 100 to 120 animals each month, and that 83 adoptions for the Rufe Snow location is “doing really well.” About 170 animals were adopted in the last month between both facilities, she said.
“There’s been a lot of interest in volunteers. We have between 250 to 300 currently,” she said. “Volunteers will be able to start in July [at the Rufe Snow location] and it’s been really cool to see so many people want to get involved.”
