Amarillo, TX – The animal population at the City of Amarillo’s shelter has reached full capacity and is at a critical level, placing many animals at risk of euthanasia. To facilitate the return of these pets to their families, Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare (AAM&W) is waiving all reclaim fees, and those fees related to microchipping and rabies shots through the end of the business day Thursday, April 20. This does not include any associated medical bills incurred on the animal’s behalf.
The City’s shelter is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Visit http://amw.amarillo.gov/?page_id=36 to view pictures of animals currently in the City’s care, or visit the shelter at 3501 S. Osage.
