Lost Pets That We've Found!

Who We Are

Nacogdoches Animal Services and Adoption Center is a city run animal shelter. Volunteers and staff work very hard to find homes for as many animals as possible. Our main focus is on dogs and cats, however we have had creatures great and small, walking and crawling, surrendered for adoption.


An extremely important and effective way you can help the animals in Nacogdoches County is to spay and neuter your pets. There is an explosion of unwanted dogs and cats in Nacogdoches right now and YOU can help reduce those numbers.

Need assistance? The Humane Society of Nacogdoches County currently provides assistance to Nacogdoches residents to help offset the costs of spaying and neutering. Contact Judy at 936-569-7272.

How can you become involved?

One way you can help the animals, and reduce the euthanasia rate in the shelter is by fostering a dog or cat who has been surrendered to us. A home environment will help the animals with socialization and become more adoptable. Fostering is very rewarding and challenging.

All foster animals receive their parvo, distemper, and bordatella vaccinations, prior to being placed in a foster home.

Wish List

Our dogs and cats have a wish list. First and foremost is their own loving home. Other things that can help make their stay with us more pleasant are:

Kong toys, paper towels, bleach, laundry detergent, Dawn dish soap, lemon pinesol, spray bottles, holiday and seasonal decorations, dog and cat shampoo, grooming supplies, dog and cat toys, blankets and towels, portable kennels of all sizes, topical flea treatment for any size dog/cat.

When calling the shelter....

When calling the shelter about an animal please have their 6or7-digit code handy as well as their name.

If you have lost a pet, first check our Petfinder site to see if your dog or cat is on our adoptable list. If he is not, come by the shelter and look for your pet. Your visit is the best chance your companion will have of getting back home to you. If you still have not found him, give us your contact information in case he/she is brought in to the shelter.

New animals come to the shelter daily, so keep checking back.

If you are looking for a specific breed, size or temperament of an animal to adopt, please give us your contact information so we can alert you if someone matching your description comes in.

Our goal is to reunite or rehome each and every animal who comes into our care. EVERY dog and EVERY cat deserves a loving home.

How to Adopt a Forever Friend

Our adoption fee for an unaltered dog or cat is $20.00. Animals who are already spayed or neutered have a $30 adoption fee. All animals adopted from shelters are required by state law, to be spayed or neutered.
