Kerr County is working alongside Kerrville Pets Alive! in hopes of enhancing the operation of Kerr County Animal Services to help save and improve the lives of dogs and cats. Kerrville Pets Alive! was established last year in answer to a call by Kerr County Commissioner’s Court in forming a nonprofit to assist with funding, educational endeavors, pet adoptions and publicity for Kerr County Animal Services.
KPA! is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to save cats and dogs from euthanasia by keeping pets out of the county’s animal facility and by assisting Kerr County Animal Services with resources needed to help find homes for impounded animals. Commissioner Jonathon Letz serves as the liaison commissioner for the county’s animal services division. He said, “I have been very happy with the support KPA! has provided Kerr County Animal Services. KPA! has provided both financial assistance and suggestions concerning operations and the long-term direction for Kerr County Animal Services.”
Since KPA!’s formation in 2019, there has been a substantial reduction in the number of Kerr County cats and dogs that have had to be euthanized. “I think this has been a win-win for the community,” Letz added.
KPA! is currently accepting donations of pet food and litter for distribution to pet owners in need. Donations may be delivered between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the KPA! office, 414 Clay Street, in Kerrville.
