Animal Care Services Extends Hours to Allow More Opportunity to Adopt
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Corpus Christi Animal Care Services has new hours of operation for animal adoptions. They hope the extended hours at the shelter will give people a greater opportunity to adopt pets.
The new hours for adopting pets will be 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. All other business will be conducted between 1-5 p.m. The shelter will remain closed on Sundays.
Eventually, they hope to extend the hours even further.
"Just getting the word out there that now we have extended hours," ACS Program Manager Heather Hedrick said. "And the long-term goal of the shelter is to be open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. to accommodate people coming in on their lunches as well as people stopping by right after work."
Hedrick encourages the community to visit the shelter and view their adoptable cats and dogs.
