Keene Animal Shelter

UPDATE-"BIRDIE" HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
The Rottweiler mix that was running loose on Old Betsy has been fully vetted and spayed and is ready to find her forever family. If you are interested in adopting “Birdie” please come to the Keene Police Department (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, closed for lunch 12pm-1pm) to fill out an adoption application. Her adoption fee is $110.

She is estimated to be about one year old and has been with a foster for approximately 10 days. The foster said “Birdie” is good with other dogs, playful, and has not shown any aggression. She has not chewed anything and appears to be housebroken, as she keeps a clean kennel. “Birdie” can be shy until she gets to know you, then she turns into a wiggle-butt.

Her adopter will need to have patience when teaching her to walk with a leash and slowly introduce her to riding in a vehicle. She has not been exposed to young children while in the foster’s care, therefore we do not know how she would react. You may contact Animal Control to set up a meet and greet.

As a friendly reminder from your Keene Police Department, to be extra cautious in the morning as kids are heading back to school. Be on the lookout for kids walking in the streets and riding their new bikes. And remember, when entering a school zone, be sure to slow down, stay off your wireless devices, and obey all traffic laws. Drive smart so our kids stay safe!

Just a week ago we put out a video warning of the possibility of persons stealing packages from your front porch.

Well, today we made an arrest on Maple of a person who was stealing a package...and found methamphetamine on their person.

If you must shop online, make sure you are home to receive the package or have it delivered to the FedEx or UPS store. If you cannot do either of these, invest in a camera system like the ones offered by Ring or Nest.

**For Informational purposes**

Last night an individual, who is not a Keene resident, was the victim of an alleged robbery on Magnolia on the SWAU campus. The individual reported that they were assaulted by unknown suspects and their cellular phone was taken.

The complainant was not a SWAU student and the Keene PD has no reason to believe that there is a continued threat to any person in our city.

This information is being released solely to make citizens situationally aware and to prevent misinformation. Due to this being an ongoing investigation no further information will be released.

From the National Weather Service in Ft Worth.
- A strong cold front will pass this afternoon and evening, ushering in much cooler temperatures. Widespread rain will overspread the region by late Monday, and continue into Tuesday morning.
- For Central Texas, temperatures will likely be too warm to support any frozen precipitation. All precipitation should end across the region by late Tuesday afternoon. Event total rainfall accumulations will likely be one-half to one inch.

As soon as we finished our Thanksgiving outreach, our elves went straight to work shopping to provide for the Christmas needs of some of our citizens.

Unfortunately, our elves’ funds are almost exhausted and we still have more folks in need.

So, we have decided to lower the cost of our Keene Police Department 2020 calendar to give a boost to our fundraising. Now you can purchase one of these awesome calendars for just $10. They’re available at the front desk of the police department, at Mountain Coffee, at the Adventist Book Center, and at the front desk of all three KISD schools.

2 KPD young officers were interacting with folks picking up kids, great grand, stopped, said is something wrong, not sure of his exact words, they came to visit, just to say hello, I hope it happens often, don't forget our female officer, girls need to know law enforcement is for both genders, Great job fellows glad to see the interaction with community, we support you when we see you as part of our community.
have taken children to elementary/jr high this week, first time in 2 yrs. 1. Kids riding bikes in the dark, with no reflectors, no headlights in the middle of the street, accidents waiting to happen. When could officers do some bike/walking safety at the especially elementary school?? Perhaps instead of backback you could get funds for reflectors/headlights, have kids bring bikes to police department to install, education just a thought 😞😞😔
Still waiting to see which of our finest takes the "Git Up" Challenge.
Where are you at Chief? The Big Tex, your favorite, is on special today!! 😂😂😂😂
Cleburne Police department writes grants to pay for sending prospective officers to school who is writting the grants for Keene??
To the officer that was parked at the shop right beside the Keene city hall: I drove by and saw that you looked tired (your hand was to your face and rubbing your eyes) and God laid it on my heart to turn back around & go to the sonic and buy you lunch/breakfast. YOU ARENT AT THAT SPOT ANYMORE!!!! I had a hot coffee and croissant meal & a Bahamas bucks card all ready for you! I wanted that officer to know & to know that I appreciate everything that our peace makers do for us. God bless y'all❤️
Happy National Police Week! Thank you, Keene PD, (officers and dispatchers), for all you do to keep our streets safe. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to the job, not just during this week, but all the weeks of the year! Your service is very much valued!
​ Hi, I wanted to set up a charity offer for the department. I run an online store and can definitely help the department.
I want to thank the 4 police officers that came out and worked for an hour trying to get the 2 skunks trapped in our basement window area... they tried tlso hard to free them. AND WE THANK YOU
