Adoptable / Lost & Found Pets


  • Adoption fees are $10. We accept cash and check only.
  • Sterilization and rabies vaccinations must be administered within 30 days of adoption on adult animals, and within 6 months on puppies and kittens.
  • Must provide us proof on or before date given or charges will be filed.
  • All stray animals are held for 3 business days before being placed for adoption, no exceptions.
  • Once an animal is ready for adoptions we do not hold or reserve for any reason. We adopt and release to rescue on a first come first serve basis.

Spaying, Neutering & Vaccinations
Little Elm Town Ordinance # 960 further requires that all dogs and cats adopted from the Little Elm Shelter be spayed or neutered and vaccinated against rabies.

Adult dogs and cats must be spayed or neutered and vaccinated within 30 days of the date of adoption, while puppies and kittens must be spayed or neutered and vaccinated within reaching six months of age. Again, failure to provide this certification from a licensed veterinarian constitutes a violation of the ordinance, which will result in a citation being issued.

Low cost coupons to spay or neuter your pet are available from the shelter upon adoption.

Lost or Found Pets
As soon as possible upon entering the shelter, all animals are posted on the town's website.
  • Complete a Lost or Found report if your pet is missing or if you have located an animal that is not yours. Once submitted, animal control is notified during normal business hours.
  • If you are reporting your pet as lost, and animal control locates it, you will be contacted, based on the information you submit on the form so please be as accurate and complete as possible.
  • If you are reporting a found animal and would like animal control to pick it up please call (972) 377-1898. You will be contacted during normal business hours. If you would like to hold onto the animal until the owners have been found, please fill out the form. The information you provide will be given to the owners to contact you.
