We provide a temporary home for lovable, adorable puppies and kittens, faithful and devoted adult cats and dogs, and just about every other furry, scaly, or feathered species of animal people keep! Lubbock Animal Services takes in any animal, beloved pet or stray a Lubbock Citizen may have found, lost on the streets of Lubbock. Lubbock Animal Services will also take in animals from the county and surrounding towns, however, there is a fee for this.

*Adoption Program and Fees
Our adoption program exists solely to place pets in loving, committed homes. While waiting for that special family, the animal is cared for in the Lubbock Animal Shelters, *Adoptions*. Veterinary care, food, water, and special attention are all provided to ensure that every animal's stay with us is as pleasant as it can be.

Individuals wishing to adopt a pet must complete an adoption application followed by an interview with an adoption counselor.

All of these animals have received their first set of vaccinations, will be tested for heartworms or feline leukemia, will be spayed or neutered and Micro-chipped and are just waiting for a permanent home with a caring new owner. Even with providing all of these services, the most it ever costs to adopt a pet from us is just $60!

All of our animals are altered prior to the finalization of the adoption. All adoptions are first-come, first-served. We do not normally ship animals so adopters must be able to come to our shelter to pick their new family member up or make all shipping arrangements. Adopters are responsible for all shipping charges. Breed Groups must have a Rescue Agency Agreement on file along with a copy of their 501(c)(3) with the city before they can pick up any animal from our shelter.

We work hard to ensure that an appropriate match is made so that the relationship will be one that lasts a lifetime. Part of this program includes education regarding the proper care of the new pet, how to handle common problems that may arise, and what responsibilities you have as a new pet owner.

All of the pets showcased on these pages are available for adoption to good homes. If you are interested in giving one of our homeless animals a second chance for a good life, please call (806) 775-2700. If you love animals and can't have a pet the next best thing is to volunteer your time and services at your local shelter. Not only will the staff love you but you will make a difference in an animals life. Lubbock Animal Adoptions always need volunteers for all reasons from, working with the animals to posting pictures on our website.
