The strays at the City of Alice pound are in desperate need of a furr-ever home.

The shelter currently has approximately 10 dogs that have been at the pound for several weeks and in need of a home.

Due to lack of employees at the pound they are not taking in anymore strays or making calls until the city can hire a certified animal control officer. 

However, the remaining animals need a home and a family.

The adoption fee is $25.

All animals adopted through the city should be sterilized 45 days after adoption. A voucher can be picked up from People Assisting Animal Control that would give a discount with the spay and neutering of an animal.

Anyone who would like to make these dogs part of their family should call the Alice Police Department between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at 361-664-0186.
