Our Pet List


Who We Are

Tri-City Animal Shelter is a municipal animal shelter that serves the cities of Cedar Hill, DeSoto, and Duncanville. Not only do we take care of the animals that Animal Control picks up in those cities, if you find a stray animal in one of those cities, you can bring it to us. If you have a pet that you can no longer care for, and you can provide proof of residency, such as a Driver’s license or current utility bill for Cedar Hill, DeSoto, or Duncanville, the animal can be surrendered to the shelter.
The mission of the Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is to provide exemplary care for impounded and unwanted animals through redemption, adoption, and public education.
The vision of the Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is to work as a team to make a positive difference in the lives of people and animals. Our facility, built in 2009, boasts glass-front cages for all adoptable animals, separate kennels for stray and adoptable dogs, cage-free hallways, an open reception area and get-acquainted rooms for dogs and cats.

Adopting a friend

All potential adopters must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid Texas Driver's License, and fill out a pre-adoption application. The adoption fee for our pets is $75.00. For the dogs it includes a DA2PPV vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, sterilization, microchip with registration, and a heartworm test (if old enough) and collar. For the cats, it includes an FVRCCP vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, sterilization, microchip with registration, cardboard carrier, and a collar.
When you adopt an animal from the Tri City Animal Shelter, the animal may not go home that day. If it is old enough to be sterilized, we will transport the animal to one of our participating veterinarians the next business day. The veterinarian will spay/neuter the animal and give it a rabies vaccination (if age appropriate). You will then pick your new pet up from the veterinarian’s office that afternoon. For more information, please give us a call at 972-291-5335.
