This week we have a handsome lab/pit bull mix named "Merle Haggard" as out Pet of the Week. He is 2 years old and has been in the Shelter since Oct. 18. He is a very loving boy who loves walks, good on the leash, may be house trained. He also knows "sit" and is heart worm negative. He is happy and content but is looking for his forever home. Could that be yours? Please come see him, take a stroll on the walking trail, or play with toys in the yard. He loves pets and hugs and can't wait to see you. Ask for "Merle Haggard in the office.

If you might be interested in Merle Haggard or any of his friends, they can be visited at the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., with extended hours on Wednesday and Friday until 6 p.m. Or, visit the Animal Shelter's website and see all of the available dogs at

Adoption fees are $100 for female dogs, $90 for male dogs and $70 for cats. All of our “special needs” animals are $25. Follow us on Facebook to see all of our specials.

For those who can't adopt but would still like to help, Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter always appreciates volunteers. If you have a little spare time please come out and walk a dog or play with the cats, it makes a world of difference for our furry friends. Donations of cat litter, dog food, cat food, trash bags, and cleaning supplies are also a great way to help out.
