The Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare (AAM&W) had an owner surrender 31 cats to their facility on Tuesday.  The AAM&W is looking for forever homes for some of these animals.


After the owner surrender the AAM&W was able to determine that 13 of these cats were adoptable.  They were said to be health and friendly and ready to go to a new home.

The owner is planning to relocate and called the AAM&W to take the cats.  Even though she surrendered 31 cats they are expecting more as she moves out of her home.

AAM&W Director Richard Havens says:

“Large influxes of animal populations like this to the City’s shelter and the Amarillo Panhandle Humane Society stretches our resources to the limit and as such many animals leave our community and even more meet the fate of euthanasia and that’s not acceptable,” Havens says. “I hope this brings attention to the City ordinance that limits the number of four domestic animals per household. This ordinance is designed to promote the public’s health, safety and welfare of the community.”

The AAM&W is looking for people to adopt these animals and provides a safe and loving home for them.  If you are interested in adopting one of these cats you can stop by the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society at 3501 S. Osage.  The Humane Society is open from 10am - 7pm Monday-Friday and 11am-5pm on Saturday.
