Cathy Le would love for more people driving down Howard Road near Lions Park Road to notice The City of Waxahachie Animal Services building and stop in to adopt an animal.

A large, colorful mural could go a long way in getting their attention.

Last weekend Le, animal services manager, and Police Chief Wade Goolsby completed a mural on the side of the animal services building that features a cat and a dog.

“We really wanted to attract more traffic into the shelter,” Le said. “Plus, it gives people who come by more opportunities for photos and gives them something to look at while they’re here.”

She said the color image also reflects the vibrant spirit of the animal services staff.

Le said she and Goolsby came up with the design, created it on an iPad and projected the image onto the wall. After Le drew the outline she and Goolsby got to painting.

Goolsby painted the dog, and Le painted the cat.

“We’ve had an amazing response to it so far,” Le said. “Lots of people said, ‘I didn’t know you could paint.’”

Le said the project took nearly seven hours. She hopes it will raise awareness of the shelter, which has dogs and kittens available for adoption.

To schedule a visit to meet a pet at the City of Waxahachie Animal Services or for more information call 469-309-4150 or email waxahachieanimalservices@waxahachiepd.org. To see more adoptable animals visit them on Facebook at WaxahachieAnimalServices.
