Appreciating the Animal Shelter

When you think about Town services, the first things that probably come to mind are police and fire department services, street repair, and water billing. But, do you think about the Animal Shelter? Likely not, but here's why you should; the Animal Shelter and the Animal Services division play a critical role in our town. They work for the protection of animals, reunite lost pets with their owners, help to keep the public safe from aggressive, injured, or sick animals, and help to educate the public on a variety of animal-related topics. Mentioning the importance of these functions comes at the right time; it is Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. Not only do we want to express our gratitude to this department and its staff for their work this week and year-round, but we also want to let you know a little bit more about the Animal Shelter. 

The current building for the Little Elm Animal Shelter opened in 2012, and services as the hub for all things Animal Services. The Animal Shelter accommodates our Animal Services staff, and it is where lost animals go to be loved and cared for until they are picked up by their owners, or until they are adopted. If you’re looking to adopt your fur-ever friend, the Shelter will have a $30 adoption special from Nov. 12-21. Your adoption fee will include free microchipping, vaccinations, and spay/neuter services. View our adoptable dogs and cats

Residents of the Town can also rent live animal traps at the shelter to help capture nuisance animals, such as rodents or armadillos. 

The Animal Shelter is also a place of learning and has become a place where people with a passion for the care and welfare of animals can meet and volunteer their time. 

The staff of our Animal Services division work tirelessly for animals and are just as passionate about the "people" part of animal care, too. They serve as a resource for the public on topics regarding their pets, stray animals, and how to connect with wildlife resources and rescues. 

Throughout the year, the Shelter offers low-cost vaccination clinics so that pet owners can keep their pets up-to-date and healthy. The next clinic is on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

We hope you appreciate our Animal Shelter and our Animal Service staff as much as we do. Stop by and say "thanks!”. They also love cookies, so we hear.
