Just the DOGS Just the CATS

Animals are not available for rescue until made available by the director of the shelter.
Open Tuesday -
Little Rock Animal Village is open Tuesday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The kennels open at 10:00 a.m. for viewing. You can come at 8:00 a.m. if you are looking at a specific animal. The shelter is located at 4500 S. Kramer St. (see mapping below to find us)

Please remember, LRAS euthanizes animals based on temperament, health, and available space. If there is enough room, no one is put down; however, the Animal Village is always at full capacity. It is VERY important to let Animal Services know of your interest in an animal.

All animals listed on this website are available for adoption, unless there is a future "Available:" date listed in the animal details section. If the "Available:" date has not past, the animal can still be visited.

Be sure to have the ID number so LRAS will know what animals you are referring to.

You will want to take him or her out of the kennel area, and go outside. Please be aware that when they are comfortable in a home, they will relax, and their personality will be different than in the shelter.

When you are ready to adopt the LRAS policy is first come - first serve. You cannot reserve an animal for adoption. An Adoption Application is required. The animals can be adopted at 8:00 a.m., Tuesday-Saturday on their available date.

It is a state law that an animal can not leave a shelter until sterilized (Arkansas Code 20-19-103 I (1). For animals needing sterilization, they will be altered at the next available time by the LRAS veterinarian. If the animal is too young or sick to be altered, the vet will sign a medical waiver and give a date the animal can be returned to be altered.


Volunteers are needed and always welcome. If you are interested send an email to lrasvolunteers [at] gmail.com

The cost to rescue an animal involves the vetting fees, boarding costs (sometimes free fosters are available, or reduced rate boarding), and transportation. The transportation cost depends on where you are located, and can involve a volunteer ground transport, paid ground transport (usually around $125 to the NE US), or air transportation (ask the rescue group that is assisting you for details, but this may be in the range of ~$125 and up).

If you are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, you may be able to rescue animals directly from LRAS.

The LRAS requirements are:
Provide LRAS with proof of your organization's 501(c)(3) status.
Provide LRAS with a copy of your organization's mission statement (which states your organization's purpose to rescue animals).
You must have a local representative (in Pulaski County, Arkansas).

If you do not meet these requirements, contact one of the local rescue groups to assist you.

Please don't forget to provide the LRAS animal ID number.

Note that for rescue groups as well as adopters all animals must be sterilized. There are no exceptions. When Little Rock Animal Services is contacted for rescue, the animal will be schedule for sterilization. The animal can be picked up between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. the date of the sterilization. If a waiver is given the animal must remain in Pulaski County until it is sterilized. Waivers follow the same process, and a vet appointment will be scheduled upon contact from the rescue. A date will be given to return the animal to the Little Rock Animal Village for sterilization.
