Some good news for homeless animals in Waco.
The City of Waco has agreed to continue funding the Central Texas Humane Society for another two months.
A few weeks ago the city informed the humane society that they were no longer going to contract with them.
But many people worry will happen to the animals when the city takes over.
For Baylor Student Emerson Hill right now is the perfect time to find a new pet.
"We know all these animals need to be rescued before the city takes it over," said Hill.
Over the past few weeks the City of Waco has decided to discontinue funding the humane society, but will allow it to stay open for the next two months.
They said that once they're in charge, these homeless pets will have three days, and if they're not adopted, they'll be put down.
"The city is going to take it over and maybe do something about it, that's great but three day turn around that's just, that's insane," said Hill.
"That is not near enough time to find your lost pet, nor is it long enough for a rescue to be contacted to see if they have a foster home," said animal activist Denise Rinker.
In order to try and prevent so many animals from being put down, the shelter is lowering their prices on animals to hopefully get them adopted out before it's too late.
"Right now we've lowered our prices to 50 dollars and that's because we want to move some animals to good homes," said Adoption and Rescue Manager Nicole Wilson.
But that's not all that's being done.
While your looking for that new addition to the family keep an eye out for "Lonely Hearts" pets.
"Any dog that's been here for over 30 days and cats too, that's been here for 30 days, and is over five years old, they are 25 dollars for adoptions they're called Lonely Hearts," said Wilson.
Along with people like Emerson looking to help.
Denise Rinker has started a petition to not only have a new shelter built, but also to allow the humane society to run it.
"We are not going to give up, this is a fight, for everything, these animal have no voice and we are their voice," said Rinker.
"If you just really want a pet, want something to take care of that you'd come here and adopt a dog and really honestly save a life," said Hill.
