Klein Animal Shelter

The Klein Animal Shelter is located in Jacksonville, Texas (30 miles South of Tyler). Our intake is approx. 8,000 animals from Cherokee County, Smith County and beyond. We strive to give each animal that comes under our care every chance for a new and loving home. Because we are an open-door facility we will accept any animal who needs a temporary home. We work very hard to place animals for adoption through our program or one of our numerous transfer and rescue partners. Please feel free to come meet our animals or donate your time and talent to help the animals we serve. Monetary donations are always appreciated.

Adoption Process

PLEASE NOTE: We close daily from 1:00 to 2:00 for lunch. TO ADOPT: Complete our adoption application and bring it to our shelter for the review process, which takes about 15 minutes (occasionally more time is required if we have a volume of customers). Once approved, we will complete the adoption contract and go over the microchip and insurance information with you. Animals who are already spayed/neutered can go home the same day. Animals who are not will be held until the following Thursday so they can be spayed/neutered before leaving the shelter. The adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75 and includes the spay/neuter surgery, microchip, 30 days free pet insurance, first vaccinations and worming, a cat carrier and a starter pack filled with coupons and a food sample. The adoption fee for most dogs and puppies is $75 and includes spay/neuter, microchip, 30 days free pet insurance, first vaccinations and worming, leash and starter pack filled with coupons and a food.
