Animal shelter announces new hours

Mustang Animal Shelter has announced a change in its hours of operation.

The shelter is now open from 9 a.m. until noon and 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday. The shelter is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Shelter officials ask that anyone wishing to reclaim their pet or adopt an animal call 376-2488 and make an appointment.

“Because we would like to personally introduce you to the animals that may interest you, we ask that you call in advance to schedule an appointment,” officials said via email. “Our shelter does not have open viewing of the animals so there is no ‘window shopping.’”

When picking up a lost pet from the shelter, residents are asked to bring the animal’s current rabies vaccination certificate. Annual city tags and licenses can also be purchased for $6. Pets are required to wear identification tags, which are renewed each January.

Animals available for adoption and other information is available on the shelter’s Facebook page, located at
