The selection of dogs and cats at the Richardson Animal Shelter has never been better. Kittens and puppies are born at a higher rate in spring and summer, so this time of year is always a busy one for the Shelter. With people often moving during the summer months, the Shelter also receives more owner surrenders than at other times of the year. All of this means that the Shelter has a great selection of dogs and cats that are looking for a home. As an added incentive, adoption fees are being waived for all adult dogs beginning June 5.
