starGot Appointment?

Got Appointment?WCRAS is currently operating by Appointment Only. Please read on to learn about our current procedures for our different services and programs, as well as how to help.

Animal shelters in areas already affected by the novel virus have felt a significant impact. Because of this, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) is operating by appointment only.

First and foremost, The World Small Animal Veterinary Association and the World Health Organization states that there is no evidence that companion animals can be infected with or spread COVID-19.

The shelter now allows one family at a time in to view our cats. We will check temperatures before we permit entry. For our dogs, you can follow our appointment process for adopters, fosters, and reunions. Face masks are requested.

WCRAS hours are now back to normal at 12p.m. - 6p.m. Monday through Friday and 11a.m. - 5p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Email [email protected] to make an appointment.

 
 

starIntake

Adopt Please wear your mask!The shelter is currently limiting intake because of the potential impact on our ability to care for the animals at the shelter. This inability to care for animals can lead to euthanasia of healthy pets. If an animal needs to be rehomed, please refer to this page for resources.

If you found a stray, instead of dropping off the animal at the shelter, please scroll down for more resources, including how to get the animal scanned for a microchip, caring for the animal in your home, and posting on social media.

If you are looking for your lost pet, please scroll down for resources.


More Ways to Help

WCRAS will still accept donations at the Services Building (the single-story, brown building with an entrance off the Inner Loop). Please leave all donations in front of the shelter. Please place linens in plastic bags. We currently need unopened bags of dog food and cat food, canned food, cat litter, new toys in store packaging, and crates. Monetary donations can be given by clicking the Donate button on the top of the page. You can also order from our Amazon Wish List here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/18XF7ZOHK968O?ref_=wl_share

Found Animal Resources

So you’ve found a stray animal. What are your next steps? Why, help it get back home, of course! Recent data suggests that many lost pets are found within just a few blocks from their homes. While the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter is dedicated to reuniting lost pets with their families, we encourage you to use the following resources to help that animal in need get back home without ever coming to visit us. Trust us, happy family reunions are truly special moments that you’ll remember forever!


Scan the found animal for a microchip.

Animals can be scanned for a microchip at:

  • Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (text 512-203-2822 for curbside service)
  • Veterinarian clinics
  • Tomlinson’s Feed Pet Stores 

Enter the microchip number into http://www.petmicrochiplookup.org/ and call the company that populates from the search. They may have the owner’s information!

Make an Effective Flyer for your area and local vets

At any typical intersection, you only have 5 seconds and 5 words to get your message across to drivers who are passing through the area where the animal was found.

  • Make them GIANT so that people driving by cannot miss them.
  • Make the flyers FLUORESCENT so that the color attracts the attention of everyone.
  • Put them in your yard and the major intersections near where you found the animal.
  • Keep them BRIEF and to the point.
  • Let them convey a VISUAL IMAGE of who you found.
