City of Wichita Falls Animal Services
All animals brought into the Animal Services Center are photographed and listed here as they are brought in. If you've lost a dog or cat, please scroll thru these photos or come in person to the Animal Services Center. The date listed above each photo is the date the animal can be placed into an adoption program, transferred out or euthanized. Animals being held for our adoption program are designated with "Adoptable!"- Name We Give Them. The Animal Services Center is a service of the City of Wichita Falls. Animals taken in by Animal Control officers or turned in by residents residing within the city limits of Wichita Falls are housed at our reclaim facility located at 1207 Hatton Road. Stray animals are housed 3-5 days and all efforts are made to reunite pets with their owners. Once an animal's time is up, they are either placed into our adoption program, transferred to our local community partners and rescue organizations or are humanely euthanized.
Animals can be adopted thru our adoption program. Our adoption fee is $50 which includes 1 set of vaccinations (excluding rabies), dewormer, bordatella (for the dogs), flea/tick prevention, a microchip, heartworm test or feline leukemia test and a City license. The adopter is responsible for paying for the spay/neuter and rabies vaccination at the veterinarian of their choice.
We only designate a few chosen animals for our adoption program and they are highlighted as "Adoptable!" followed by a name we have given them. However, any other animal that isn't reclaimed and is not deemed ill or aggressive may be adopted.
To be eligible to adopt, all pets in the adopter's home must be spayed/neutered, current on rabies vaccination and a City license (if they reside in Wichita Falls). Applications take 24-48 hrs to process so that we are able to do a fence check and verify all information. Adopters then make a spay/neuter appointment at the veterinarian of their choice.
