Due to extremely high numbers of strays and owner-surrendered animals coming into the City of Amarillo shelter, Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare (AAMW) is waiving reclaim fees from Thursday (May 9) through May 15. Owners are encouraged to come to the shelter and pick up their animals without paying fees.
AAMW will be waiving kennel fees, rabies voucher fees, vaccine fees and microchipping fees. Fees will not be waived for veterinary bills the animal may have incurred, and also will not apply to animals being held for quarantines or dangerous animal investigations.
While some reclaim fees are being waived, owners are encouraged to consider the Adoption Option in order to reclaim their animals. The Adoption Option includes spay or neuter, microchip and the rabies vaccine, with a cost of $55 for dogs and $45 for cats. Contact AAMW staff with questions.
