Over the next few months, community members have the opportunity to help identify the types of services needed in Bryan through the 5-Year Consolidated Plan Community Needs Assessment for the city’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) programs.
If you’re looking for a new furry friend, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to find them. The Bryan Animal Center is participating in the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative, which helps find loving homes for every animal in the shelter.
Clear the Shelter will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Bryan Animal Center, 2207 Finfeather Road, and all animals will have fee-waived adoptions for families with approved applications. Currently, the Animal Center has more than 50 animals available for adoption.
All animals will be adopted out on a first-come, first-served basis with an approved application. People interested in adopting an animal on Clear the Shelter day should submit an application ahead of the event to expedite the process on Saturday. Applications can be submitted online or in person at the shelter.
Potential adopters must bring the following with them:
- A copy of their current pets’ rabies vaccination certificates
- Proof of ownership, if they recently purchased a home and are not in the tax records.
All animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm-tested (canines only) and have their basic vaccinations.
