KILLEEN, Texas – The Killeen Animal Shelter remains near capacity, and will offer free adoptions June 19 and 20.

Fees will be waived for animals that are sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped. Standard rates will apply to other animals.

This is the fourth consecutive weekend of free adoptions. While adoptions have totaled 84 for previous weekends, 67 animals have been taken in by the shelter those same days.

Dogs and cats of different ages, breeds, sizes and temperaments are in need of forever homes – and the shelter depends on the public to adopt them. Animals available for adoption can be viewed online at
