Wichita Falls, Texas- Citizens, who have outstanding warrants in Wichita Falls and throughout Wichita County, are encouraged to take care of them before the Great Texas Warrant Roundup begins Sunday, March 1st.
During the next several weeks citizens who have outstanding warrants, due to traffic violations, unpaid parking tickets or higher charges, have a chance to voluntarily take care of their legal issues so they can avoid being arrested, during the “Roundup,” at home, work or school.
Notices have been mailed to individuals in the City of Wichita Falls who have active warrants. During the next two weeks these individuals are encouraged to appear in person at the Municipal Court, located at 611 Bluff, or contact the Court by calling 761-7880, to clear up their outstanding warrant(s). Individuals can pay in person at the Court, online at. www.wichitafalls.gov (go to the Municipal Court webpage under Departments and then “Pay a Fine”) or by mail to:

Here are six beautiful dogs that are still available from our “Fur-ever Friday” program:
Huey: Texas Pit Crew
Mocha: Texas Pit Crew
Tig: Texas Pit Crew
Jezebel: Wichita Falls Animal Services
Duece: Texas Pit Crew
Piper: Wichita Falls Animal Services
Jezebel and Duece were both adopted shortly after they were featured on “Fur-ever Friday” but both have since been returned for reasons that were no fault of their own. Duece is a sweetheart and needs someone who understands Boxers and wants a committed companion. Jezeble tries to act tough when you first meet her but once she warms up to you she is also a sweetheart. All of these babies are looking for that special someone to give them their fur-ever home. If you are interested one of the dogs from Texas Pit Crew you can contact them by email at email@example.com or check their facebook page to see where there next event will be held and visit them there. If you are interested in Jezebel or Piper you can contact Katrena at Wichita Falls Animal Services by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 761-7824 or go by and see them at 1207 Hatton Rd.
