Pampa Pet Shelter Update

Pampa, TX - A follow-up now to a story NewChannel 10 brought you last month.

A group of people in Pampa were trying to get more pets adopted after reports that city's shelter had one of the highest kill rates in the state.

95 out of every 100 animals there were euthanized according to the Pampa Animal Welfare Society or PAWS.

But on Friday, PAWS says adoptions have increased by 50% and the shelter has extended their hours to help.

They will also host an adopt-a-thon on Saturday, November 13th.

The event will take place from 10 AM  to 2 PM at Gebo's off of Price Road.
