95 Percent Kill Rate

PAMPA, TEXAS - Pampa's animal shelter has the highest kill rate in the state - that's according to members of a new group trying to change that. 95 percent of the animals there or about 250 pets a month will not live long enough for adoption.

But a two-month old group, Pampa Animal Welfare Society, has a plan to help. PAWS's first point of attack is to increase the number of foster homes in town - buying more time for the animals. And they hope to get more pets transferred to no kill shelters elsewhere.

PAWS also wants to fund a low-income spay-neuter program and eventually raise money to help build a new city shelter better suited in size and set up for adoption. Iif you want to help, the best thing to do is contact the city shelter. They can be reached at (806)669-5775.
