Adopting A Friend
Arlington Animal Services has all breeds and ages waiting for you to take them home, from adorable mixed-breed puppies and kittens to beautiful purebreds.

We hold stray animals 72 hours or seven days for animals with traceable identification (altered, declawed, pending reclamation by their owners). The 72 hours or seven business days exclude Sundays and Holidays.

Adoptions are done on a first come, first serve basis on the date the animal becomes available for adoption. You may arrive early but our offices will not open until 10:00 a.m. The first person to arrive on the date the animal becomes available for adoption will sign our visitors log and complete an interest card from the administrative staff.

You must return with the interest card in hand prior to the time the animal is available for adoption. If you arrive after the availability time you forfeit your rights to adopt the animal if someone else has expressed an interest.

Adoption Fee is $100 for Dogs and $90 for Cats. This may include spay/neuter, rabies and core vaccinations, city license, microchip and heartworm or FeLV/FIV test.

Arlington Animal Services accepts donations of dry/can kitten food, pet toys, bandanas, cat litter, towels, blankets and newspapers. In addition we accept monetary donations.

Arlington Animal Services is always in need of volunteers. Please visit the shelter or the city website to complete an application.
