New times added to increase adoptions.
Killeen Animal Shelter is extending its adoption hours. Beginning February 17, new hours will be Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The new schedule adds 17 hours of weekly adoption time. Previous hours were 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed Sunday.
Staff believes that enhancing the shelter’s availability to the public will add convenience and increase the number of animals placed in forever homes. Adoptions are essential to the dogs and cats of all ages, breeds, sizes and temperaments that find themselves in the shelter’s care.
Killeen Animal Shelter is located at 3118 Commerce Drive. In addition to visiting during daily hours, the public can view animals ready for a new home online at KilleenTexas.gov/Animals.
