Note About Adoptable Pets
Please do not be discouraged if you see an animal on the website and learn that he/she has already been adopted. We are happy that he/she found a new home! There may be another one you will like just as much!
We are unable to guarantee that specific animals shown will still be available.
Please remember new animals become available for adoption everyday so please visit regularly until you find your perfect pet!
We are unable to hold animals by phone, fax or email. All adoptions are first come, first serve.
Fees and GuidelinesThe current fee schedule was adopted by the Weatherford City Council and became effective October 10, 2017.
Additional InformationYou may visit the shelter in person at 403 Hickory Lane or call 817-598-4111 to inquire about any animal. We know your time is valuable.
WPCAS is in the middle of rebuilding our volunteer program, but there are still MANY things to do! To volunteer at the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter you must be at least 16 years of age and have a CLEAR criminal history.
Volunteering at the animal shelter consists of walking dogs, taking pictures, cuddling our cats, bathing, grooming, offsite adoptions and other various tasks the volunteer would be interested in doing.
The goal of the volunteer program is to assist the shelter in getting animals adopted. The goal is NOT cheap labor. Volunteers are not made to do anything they do not want to do, but ALL volunteers must adhere to the shelter guidelines found in the Volunteer Manual.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete the volunteer application. This takes you to our volunteer software, Better Impact. Once you have completed your application, please come in to the shelter to complete a background check and liability waiver. There is a $5 fee for the back ground check.
Make a Donation or Monetary Contribution Donations to the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter (WPCAS) help provide for the “extras” that allow the shelter staff and volunteers to make the animal's time in the shelter as pleasant as possible. Whether it’s a soft bed, a tasty treat, natural disaster or building improvements, your donation makes a homeless animal’s life a little easier. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and your generosity is greatly appreciated!
