Many rescued animals unclaimed by West residents

Posted:
WACO -

The Waco Animal Shelter still has animals that have not been claimed by West residents. The Waco shelter has taken in more than a hundred animals rescued from the April 17 explosion.

While many have been claimed by their owners, there are still more than 20 animals at the shelter. Many owners have claimed their pets, but are not able to bring them home.

"Right now it's a difficult time because we're in puppy and kitten season and the volume is just flowing in. So space is an issue," Don Bland, executive director of Waco Animal Shelter, said. "So we'd love to get these animals reunited out here and have space for some of the strays to come in."

The shelter says the city will decide on a date about how long they will keep the rescued animals, but they will not be put down.
