Georgetown Animal Shelter has cats for adoption each week at the PetsMart store in Georgetown. Watch for our adoption trailer at Market Days on the Square with wonderful dogs for adoption the 2nd Saturday of each month (except for January and February).

Who We Are

Georgetown Animal Shelter is the municipal animal shelter for Georgetown Texas. We are part of Georgetown Animal Services. The Mission of Georgetown Animal Services is to:
Promote Responsible Pet Ownership
Protect the Health and Safety of Animals in Georgetown and Insure the Health and Safety of all Persons in Georgetown from Animal Danger through Providing Humane Education to our Customers
Working to eliminate Pet Overpopulation
Careful Adoptions of the Pets in our care into Loving, Responsible Homes
Sheltering Animals with Compassion and concern for their Quality of Life, and
Enforcing the Laws and Ordinances of our State and City.

Adopting a Friend

We have many wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption. We have an adoption screening process, and after the adoption committee reviews the applications, the pet is adopted into the best home for that animal. Normally a pet can go to their new home within 1 - 3 days of the adoption application, providing the application is approved.

Volunteering and Donations

Our shelter desperately needs ADULT volunteers. We participate in numerous off-site adoption events, and we need volunteers to help us man these events. We take out an adoption trailer, and have a lot of fun taking the animals out to see the public, and hopefully get new homes for our animals. There are many other volunteering opportunities including walking and training dogs and grooming both cats and dogs, if interested, please call April @ 512-930-3592 or e-mail her @ DONATE A FEW HOURS A MONTH OF YOUR TIME AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A HOMELESS ANIMAL. DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED! Especially during kitten season we need: kitten formula. We accept donations of: canned dog and cat food, heating pads, towels, cat litter, pet carriers, newspaper, and aluminum cans (no tin) we recycle, and of course CASH. We also have an Amazon wishlist for revolving needs:
