In the interest of keeping our citizens and staff safe and healthy, Tri-City Animal Shelter is currently open to the public with a 25% limited capacity in effect.

On May 19th, we will be opening our doors with limited 25% capacity. To monitor the flow of citizens in the facility front doors may be locked by front staff to maintain our health safety capacity. If you are need of assistance and the doors are locked, don’t fret! Our front staff will assist you! 

Check out our NEW hours of operation to better serve you and save more lives!

 TUES - SAT 10 AM - 6 PM
 SUN - MON Closed

 At this time we are limiting animal viewing to one per person (or family group). First come first served. Any and all intakes will be done one at a time to maintain social safety standards. Face masks are mandatory to enter the facility and 6ft social distancing markers are marked within the shelter. Hand sanitizer will be available to citizens and staff will maintain around the clock sterilization of the facility based on CDC guidelines. 

To better serve our citizens we highly encourage the use of our appointment system for all intakes including/ not limited to surrenders, strays, and owner reclaims. You can schedule an appointment by calling 972-293-7387. Required documents and identification will need to be emailed to! If you are unable to find or send over required documentation or identification let our staff know! We will be happy to assist.

 If you are missing a lost pet or wishing to adopt, our animal population can be viewed 24/7 on our website We will also take lost reports over the phone. If you have found a pet and wish to hold on to it temporarily you may call in to leave a found report. To fast track the adoption process pre-adoption applications are available on our site. If you are needing to surrender a pet not only do we have great resources on our website you can also check out for additional support.

If you are feeling ill or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 please stay at home and get better! The health and safety of YOU and our citizens are very important to us!

A Message from our Friends:

Our pre-adoption spay/neuter program has subsidized surgery for over 6,000 adopted dogs and cats from Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center. For the past six years, we have ensured that 100% of animals adopted from the shelter were sterilized before going home, preventing those animals from contributing to overpopulation.

We need your help to keep spaying and neutering shelter animals!
