The animals at the Fort Worth Animal Shelter will gobble up a special Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.a dog looking up at a Thanksgiving meal

More than 50 volunteers will share their time on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving Day to prepare and serve more than 750 delicious meals for all the pets in the shelter. The activity is becoming a tradition at the shelter so all the pets have a little something extra during this holiday weekend.

“This week every shelter pet will receive a little bit of holiday cheer and happiness in their bowl, but it’s really the extra kindness that means the most to the pets,” said Dr. Tim Morton, City of Fort Worth Code Compliance assistant director with oversight of the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. “Each of these pets is looking for their forever home, and our staff and volunteers ensure they receive all the attention and love they deserve while in our care.”

Meal prepping by the volunteers starts at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 24, with the meal being served at noon Thursday, Nov. 25. This year’s holiday menu includes sweet potatoes, chicken, green beans and pumpkin.

The food was made available by generous donations from Fort Worth residents responding to the shelter’s Amazon wish list.

Since the summer, the shelter has been operating near, or at capacity. The shelter is currently caring for more than 750 pets.

The shelter remains in need of people who want to adopt. There’s also a huge request for those who can serve as a foster or volunteer their time. Fostering is an incredible way to help the shelter relieve some of the pressure when operating at capacity. More importantly, fostering helps give potential adopters more information on the pet, ultimately leading to a perfect match.
