Home for the Holidays!

The cats and dogs at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) have written their list to Santa, and each and every one of them listed "Home" or "Family" as what they wanted most of all. Make their wishes come true by adopting or fostering a pet during the holidays this year. For the month of December, all adult dogs and cats are only $12 to adopt, kittens and puppies are only $75 to adopt. Visit the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter website to view adoptable animals and for more information.

Sign Up at WarnCentralTexas.org for Emergency Notifications

The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is upgrading the regional notification system that powers WarnCentralTexas.org to bring residents emergency and public safety warnings they need to protect their families, properties and selves. As part of the upgrade, CAPCOG recommends that previously self-registered participants update their notification information by using the link inside an email sent through the new Everbridge system. Residents who haven’t registered to receive emergency warnings at WarnCentralTexas.org should do so. It is important to note newer cellphone models receive federal notifications, such as Amber Alerts. WarnCentralTexas.org is a separate system and a critical tool for local first responders to reach the affected public during an emergency.
