At full capacity, Bryan Animal Center asks for help

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – The Bryan Animal Center is currently at capacity, and they say they need the community to come out and adopt pets in need.

Animal Services Supervisor Ashley Rodriguez said he has seen a major influx of animals being brought to the center. This week alone, 20 to 30 dogs were brought in.

Rodriguez isn’t sure why this overflow of animals is happening, but she thinks it may have something to do with COVID-19.

“We need help. The most important thing is that we just need help. Any help the community gives us is good,” Rodriguez said.

She said if certain animals are adopted, Bryan Animal Center has the ability to continue helping the community.

“If we don’t have a lot of pets here, we can create more resources that will help the community so people can stay with their pets,” Rodriguez said. “We have events where we give out free microchips and also free rabies vaccinations and we hope to expand those things.”

Bryan Animal Center can be reached at (979) 209-5260. It is located at 2207 Finfeather Road in Bryan and is open Monday through Friday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. They are closed on Sundays.

At the moment, the refuge only accepts visitors by appointment. If you are interested in adopting, visit their website to submit your application.
