WACO, Texas (KWTX) The Waco Animal Shelter was filled to capacity Wednesday and officials were asking residents to adopt or agree to foster animals or to contribute to help potential owners with adoption fees.

“The shelter is at capacity with intake kennels filled with rescued animals awaiting shelter space. Medium and large kennels are full and only four small kennels and medical kennels are open at this time,” the city said in a press release.

“Animal care officers and shelter staff are trying everything possible to locate the owners of dogs they have rescued from the streets of Waco to return them to their homes to avoid bringing them to the shelter. Partner cities of the shelter are doing the same,” the city said.
