A shelter cat rescue and foster meeting will be held at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter on Thursday, December 13, at 6 p.m. Any person interested in the welfare of the shelter cats and kittens is encouraged to come. This meeting is to discuss solutions and options available to the shelter population that would reduce the euthanasia rate in adoptable cats and kittens.
â€śWe are very concerned about the number of cats that we receive at the shelter and are looking for creative solutions to this problem,â€ť stated Animal Services Director Cheryl Schneider.
