The Alice Animal Control kennel is experiencing a full house of sheltered canines.

Local residents in need of a little company, while spending more time at- home, might want to consider helping the community and providing a loving home for a pup in need.

Lead Officer Jose (Chema) Martinez, and his staff have doubled the cleaning procedures and routine sanitizing for the animals, during the beginning of the pandemic starting in late February. All animal kennels are now cleaned four-times a day, instead of two, cleaning supplies and routine disinfectant procedures have doubled, as well.

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 the animal.

Anyone who would like to make a difference in one of these dogs lives and adopt, should call the Alice Police Department between 1 and 4 p.m. at 361-664-0186.
