Adopting is as easy as 1-2-3-4! All you need to do is (1) come into the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter, (2) visit with pets that interest you, (3) select a pet that fits your home and your life, and (4) bring the paperwork on the kennel to the front office to process your adoption! You will need to have your Government Issued ID, will be asked to complete a short adoption questionnaire, sign an Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee!
As the shelter exceeds 6000 animals intaken each year, homes for these animals become increasingly difficult to secure. Although the shelter does all we can to rehome the pets that we care for, there are many things that you, as the owner, are able to do to secure a positive outcome for your pet. Because of the high intake numbers and capacity of the shelter, we request that you try to find an alternative solution to surrendering your pet to the shelter. Solutions include rehoming your pet on your own, finding a trainer to help with behavioral issues, and requesting assistance from animal rescues in the area. Please take a look at our Alternatives to Surrender Guide.
If you have tried all other options, you may contact the shelter and your pet will be accepted based on availability with a $10 surrender fee. We cannot guarantee adoption for your pet. Please try other available options before surrendering to the shelter.
Contact WPCAS directly and visit the shelter to identify your pet. Once you have identified and confirmed your pet is at the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter, the front office will be able to assist you with reclamation of your pet. You will need current ID, to sign the Owner Reclamation Agreement and fees are assessed at the time of reclamation. Your pet must be current on rabies vaccination (1 year vaccines only and must provide the rabies certificate signed by the administering veterinarian) and will be required to be fitted with a microchip if you pet does not currently have one.
WPCAS does not currently have a foster program, however, please look to our rescue partners as they are always looking for great foster families!
Our shelter has a great feature to help you determine if your missing pet has been turned into the shelter and for you to see the pets here at the shelter! Visit our WPCAS Shelter Dashboard to see animals currently at the shelter, animals that were adopted/rescued today, and an interactive stray animal map that indicates where pets in the shelter were picked up at. Please pay close attention to date ranges on the Stray Animal Map to ensure you select the dates your pet went missing to the date you are looking.
All of our livestock at the shelter go up for auction and follow the Estrays chapter of the Agriculture Code and after the hold period go up for auction with Texas Auction Realty. All livestock is managed by the Parker County Sheriff's Department.
Euthanasia is always the shelter’s last resort for an animal. Animals may be euthanized based on medical issues, behavior issues, temperament, and/or space constraints at the shelter. The shelter maintains a Live Release Rate of over 90% yearly, meaning 90% of the animals that come into the shelter are rehomed successfully through reclamations, adoptions, rescues, TNR, or our barn cat program.
Ideally animals should not be in the shelter environment for over two weeks.
An animal becomes urgent once the animal has been in the shelter for over 30 days as the shelter is not set up for long term boarding. The shelter is a TEMPORARY housing situation for the pets who need it.
We try multiple ways to place our animals, however, there are times we are unsuccessful.
We do not claim to be a “No-Kill Shelter”. We try our best to place animals in our care, however, we are an animal shelter where many animals seek shelter and safety. There are times we must make difficult decisions and proceed with euthanasia due to behavioral, medical and/or space constraints.
Currently, there are no licensing requirements for dogs or cats in Parker County. It is, however, mandatory that all dogs and cats be vaccinated yearly for rabies.
Animals with no identification (no current tags or microchip) will be held for 3 days before being available for placement.
Animals with current identification (current tags and/or microchip) will be held for 5 days before being available for placement.
It is the owner’s responsibility to check the shelter regularly, and multiple times, when looking for a lost pet. We cannot verify if your pet is at the shelter over the phone or by email.
A microchip is only as good as the information registered on them. There are many times animal control picks up a pet that is microchipped and the information registered with the microchip is inaccurate. Bad information on a microchip leads animal control to a dead end when trying to return an owner home. It is imperative that owners keep updated and current information on their microchips. If you give your pet away, change the owner information on the microchip. If you move, change phone numbers, or any of your contact information changes PLEASE update your pet’s microchip information!
How do you update the information? By contacting the microchip company and following their procedures. Below are the most common microchip companies we see:
***Please note that these companies are NOT affiliated with the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter.***
The shelter uses HomeAgain Microchips for all pets at the shelter. The shelter can provide your pet with a microchip for only $20
Weatherford Animal Control Officers respond to emergency calls after hours. If you have an emergency, please contact Weatherford Police Department. If your issue is not an emergency, please call and leave a voicemail and we will return your call in the morning.

According to the ASCPA, The past and current strategy of “catching and killing”, or “catching and removing” free-roaming cats has failed. Their numbers will continue to grow, but with TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) efforts in place, the feral cat population will stabilize. TNR is the strategy of reducing the numbers of feral cats in the community by trapping the cats, bringing them to a clinic to be spayed/neutered, and returning them back to their home range. This process helps to control the population by preventing the vacuum effect, reducing the numbers of litters, population decreases as feral cats live shorter life spans than inside cats, and annoying behaviors like howling, fighting, marking territory and subsequent odors will stop or decrease dramatically.
For more information, visit Alley Cat Allies!
There are likely several people in your area feeding feral cats. The best way to provide and care for the feral cats in your community is:
TNR – Trap the cats, have them spayed or neutered, and return them to the same location they were picked up from.
Feed the cats in feeding stations and only for one hour per day. Be sure that once “dinner time” is over, all food is promptly picked up and cleaned up. You do not want to leave food out all day/all night, or leave it scattered about because that will bring in wildlife who can spread diseases and cause nuisance issues.
See Alley Cat Allies’ resources on Community Care.
Alley Cat Allies have great information on the Feral Cat Vacuum Effect!
WPCAS does lease traps for the citizens of Weatherford. There is a $50 deposit that will be refunded as long as the trap is returned in good working order. You will be allowed to keep the trap for up to two weeks. Trapping is only authorized (personal traps or leased traps) during good weather. Trapping during inclement weather is inhumane and illegal.
Citation fees are set by the municipal courts. They are usually around $200 for an “At Large” citation.

If you encounter a coyote try the following hazing methods:
You can humanely trap them, however, only certified personnel can transport and/or handle.
We do not provide pets control services, however, there are several companies in the area that do.
You should always get medical attention first, then notify animal control as any mammal that bites should be quarantined and/or sent for rabies testing.
You can find our full animal control ordinance for the City of Weatherford here.
It is important to follow the advice of a local family pet veterinarian who is aware of local disease risks, laws and is able to carefully advise families about risks to their pets.
Parker County requires each dog and cat to receive yearly rabies vaccines. The 3-year rabies vaccine is not recognized in Parker County.
Currently days feral cats can be dropped off for T-N-R surgery is Tuesdays and Fridays between 8:30 and 9:00 am. Cats arriving after 9:00am will not be accepted for surgery and will have to come back another day.
You will need to contact a veterinarian or pet hospice to have your pet euthanized as we do not offer those services through the shelter.
No. It is suggested that citizens have no more than 2 garage sales per year.
Complete a Mobile Food Permit Application and return it to Consumer Health Department. Once the application has been received, regulatory authority will review and schedule the pre-opening inspection. After the pre-opening inspection is conducted and approved, a permit will be issued. An annual permit is $300.00.
Please refer to the "Minimum Standards for Food Establishments" located under the tab, "Food Establishments". A set of plans will need to be submitted to the Consumer Health Department for review for new or extensive remodel. Complete the Food Establishment Plan Review Packet and Food Permit Application and return both documents to the Consumer Health Department. Incomplete plan review packets will delay the review process. The owner or contractor will need to make an appointment with the regulatory authority for the Final Health Inspections. Once the final inspection has passed, the owner or contractor may apply for a Health Permit. (The fee will depend on the classification of the food establishment.) The final inspection approval and payment of the Health Permit must be made prior to the issuance of the CO (Certificate of Occupancy). The CO is required prior to occupying the new, existing, or remodeled food establishment.
The City of Weatherford Consumer Health Department no longer offers a food handler's class. You may find a list of classes on the link below.

On Friday, March 20, Weatherford Mayor Paul Paschall issued a Proclamation Declaring a Local State of Disaster in response to evidence of community spread of COVID-19 within the state of Texas.
The proclamation, made pursuant to the Texas Disaster Act of 19755, and relating to Emergency Management and Public Health, pursuant to Chapter 418 of the Texas Government Code.
Weatherford is modifying training programs and gatherings for staff to protect and prevent the possible spread of the virus to employees that could ultimately impact patrons.
As well as we are meeting regularly with staff to evaluate City operations and programs and events to determine any specific course of action.
The City of Weatherford is also increasing the number of cleanings of public areas and sanitizing works areas more frequently..
Staff are being temperature checked daily at all city buildings.
Face masks are required in all city buildings and during all meetings. We have an internal COVID Continuity team that meets twice a weekly to track numbers, enact policies and ensure that all of our policies and practices are exceeding the expectations set forth by the CDC and the office of the Texas Governor.
More on what the city is doing:
For specific department updates please see our COVID-19 Information page here.
Yes. COVID-19 appears to be spreading from person-to-person in a number of countries including China, South Korea, Italy, Iran and Japan. We are currently experiencing spread among close contacts in some areas of the United States.
The virus that causes COVID-19 may be passed from an infected person in several ways, including:
Most patients with COVID-19 may have no or mild symptoms. Some may develop:
If you have not recently travelled to an area with confirmed COVID-19 infections, your risk of infection is extremely low. Should you develop symptoms, it is more likely you have the common cold or Influenza (flu) and you should contact your medical provider for additional guidance.
Learn more about the symptoms on the CDC website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
The best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus. These are exactly the same precautions you would take to avoid coming down with a cold or the flu.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses:
No. There is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure to the virus.
There is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 infection receive supportive treatment including fluids to prevent dehydration, medicines to decrease fever or muscle aches, and sometimes oxygen therapy. However, some cases develop pneumonia and require medical care or hospitalization.
Learn more about what to do if/when you are sick at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html
If you believe you may be at risk of infection with COVID-19 and you develop symptoms, call ahead to a healthcare provider for additional guidance. Be sure to tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional may work with the county public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
Medical City Virtual Care has been introduced as a convenient screening option for people who are concerned that they may be at risk for COVID-19. The COVID-19 screening visit is free of charge at MedicalCityVirtualCare.Zipnosis.com.
Appointments are not necessary and the site is easily accessed from a smart phone or computer 24/7. Medical City Virtual Care allows North Texans concerned about the virus to be screened while allowing them to stay at home and prevent the spread of illness.
For individuals who are considering travel, they should consult the CDC webpage at
Early information out of China, where COVID-19 first started, shows that older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill. If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is critically important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of becoming infected with the disease. For more information for people at risk for serios illness from COVID-19 visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html
Texas Department of State Health Services has advised if you do not have health insurance, you should contact a hospital’s emergency department. You are strongly advised to call ahead to the hospital to ensure medical staff can properly isolate any potential COVID-19 cases.

In healthcare settings all across the United States, donated blood is a lifesaving, essential part of caring for patients. The need for donated blood is constant, and blood centers are open and in urgent need of donations. CDC encourages people who are well to continue to donate blood if they are able, even if they are practicing social distancing because of COVID-19. CDC is supporting blood centers by providing recommendations that will keep donors and staff safe. Examples of these recommendations include spacing donor chairs 6 feet apart, thoroughly adhering to environmental cleaning practices, and encouraging donors to make donation appointments ahead of time.
See more CDC FAQs on there website here.
There is still a lot that is unknown about the newly emerged COVID-19 and how it spreads. Two other coronaviruses have emerged previously to cause severe illness in people (MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV). The virus that causes COVID-19 is more genetically related to SARS-CoV than MERS-CoV, but both are betacoronaviruses with their origins in bats. While we don’t know for sure that this virus will behave the same way as SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, we can use the information gained from both of these earlier coronaviruses to guide us. In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods. Information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available.
CDC recommends that all people wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask (N95, surgical, etc.) if a healthcare professional recommends it. A face mask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms. This is to protect others from the risk of getting infected and keeps people from touching their face. The use of face masks (KN95 and surgical) also is crucial for health workers and other people who are taking care of someone infected with COVID-19 in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
The CDC has updated their original recommendations and now suggest that if you are making any trips out of your house to wear face masks to protect yourselves and others. If you are going out and about in public check out this PDF on Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19 to see how you can make your own face covering whether it’s with sewing or no sew.
Read more on Optimizing the supply of face masks here.
People wear protective face masks for many reasons such as seasonal allergies, pollution, protection from the common cold and cultural normalcy. If you are going out and about in public check out this PDF on Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19 to see how you can make your own face covering whether it’s with sewing or no sew.
The CDC recommends only using a mask if prescribed by a healthcare provider, leaving necessary supplies for those on the frontlines fighting COVID-19. Read more from the CDC here.
Not everybody who feels ill needs to be tested, particularly if you have mild illness. Healthcare providers determine who should be tested. While testing is becoming more available, there are still limitations in the ability to quickly collect and process tests. If you are sick with fever, cough or shortness of breath and are in a high risk group, call your healthcare provider to discuss whether you should be tested for COVID-19.
People at high risk for complications from COVID-19 are:
Other people with mild illness who are concerned about their health can call their healthcare provider to discuss COVID-19 testing and other possible reasons for their illness.
First and foremost seek medical advice from a medical professional.
Restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, taxis, or rideshare. Monitor your symptoms and call before visiting your doctor. If you have an appointment, be sure you tell them you have or may have COVID-19. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw away in a lined trashcan. Wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash your hands, use an alcoholbased hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Clean all "high touch" surfaces every day, such as counters, tables, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, phones, and keyboards. Remain in home isolation for 7 days OR until 72 hours after your fever has resolved (and symptoms get better) whichever is longer
Quarantine is for people who are not currently showing symptoms but are at increased risk for having been exposed to an infectious disease. Quarantine is for people who could become sick and spread the infection to others.
Isolation is used for people who are currently ill and able to spread the disease and who need to stay away from others in order to avoid infecting them.
Yes, people in self-quarantine are not sick and can still have contact with their household members. Should they develop any symptoms, they are asked to quickly and safely isolate from all others, including those in their household, and to contact their medical provider.
COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease. Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
Based upon available information to date, those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 include:
The U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced March 20 that all taxpayers and businesses will have an additional three months to file their taxes. Tax Day has moved from April 15 to July 15.
Be smart. Make sure you confirm the news you hear about COVID-19 by checking the following official websites:
Please refer to the CDC’s website for the latest guidance. Currently, the CDC recommendation is to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people.

1. Disc golf is played like ball golf, using flying discs. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown, and when a penalty is incurred. The winner is the golfer with the lowest score.
2. Tee throws must be completed within the designated tee areas.
3. Order of play - After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the fewest strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off.
4. Stance - Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the spot where the last throw came to rest. The other foot may be not closer to the hole than the foot on this lie.
5. A run-up and normal follow through, after release, are allowed more than 10 meters from the hole. Inside 10 meters, a player may not step past his/her lie. “Falling” or “jumping” putts are not allowed.
6. A disc that comes to rest inside the Disc Pole Hole or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. A disc that comes to rest on top of the pole hole does NOT constitute a successful putt.
7. A disc that comes rest more than 2 meters above the ground is considered out of bounds. The disc must be thrown from the ground directly below the suspended disc, with a one stroke penalty.
8. A throw that lands out-of-bounds is to be carried in and played from the point where the disc went out-of-bounds, with a one stoke penalty. Alternate recreational rules do not include penalty strokes, but you should still always carry your disc back in bounds and off of roads and sidewalks.
9. Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range, and until the fairway is completely clear of spectators and park guests.
