AWS Freeman-Fritts opened its doors in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to serve the needs of Kerr County’s animals and is commonly known as Freeman-Fritts in honor of its founders. Situated on 5 acres, it is a no-kill shelter and promotes adoptions of homeless animals. It also provides services of spay/neuter programs, a low-cost clinic, vaccinations and medications; and provides education in responsibilities of pet care and ownership. Additional services are Boarding for both dogs and cats, as well as Grooming.
AWS Freeman-Fritts actively pursues community events for the exposure and benefits of the Clinic and Shelter by hosting a large Antiques, Collectables, Book Nook and Rummage Sale twice a year, managing a booth at the monthly (April- December) Market Days on the Kerr County Courthouse grounds, holding off-site adoptions and promoting the Freeman-Fritts cookbook.
