Our goal is to save and find homes for the abandoned and abused pets in our town. We also strive to teach the public how to be responsible pet owners by spaying and neutering. We have dreams of one day having an empty shelter while all the pets are happy in their forever homes.
Our new shelter is now finally open! The City of Daingerfield recently had us a new, bigger shelter built. We now have a lot more room to save a lot more pets. Call our office for directions and stop by to pay us a visit!
Daingerfield Animal Shelter is a municipal funded shelter serving the animal control needs of Daingerfield, Texas. We get very few donations, and we don't have the funds to get the animals spayed/neutered. We have instituted many proactive adoption and animal awarness programs in the city and hope to eventually move towards a "no-kill" shelter. We have 22 kennels but when they get full we have to start putting perfectly good dogs down. By adopting one of our dogs you may be saving its life. We also have cats and kittens some times throughout the year. Just check our adoptable animals. We aren't always able to get to a computer as much as we'd like to so it's always best to call us instead of email.
Adoptions costs $30 for dogs and $20 for cats. There is an application that you will need to fill out at the shelter while you talk with one of our staff. After your application is finished we will go over it and make sure the animal is in good hands. Also now when adopting an animal from us, in accordance to state law, you will have to take the animal to the vet to get it's rabies vaccination within 14 days of the adoption or within 30 days after an infant animal becomes 4 months of age. You will also need to have the animal spayed/neutered within 30 days of adoption or within 10 days of an animal turning 7 months old. Upon completion of this you will also need to send The City of Daingerfield written proof that you have complied. We are trying to find a way to make this process a little easier. We also give the pets their shots before they leave us along with a rabies vaccination voucher from our local vet, so you're first rabies vaccine is already paid for. The animal's welfare is our foremost concern. In the past we have adopted out animals, only for them to come back to us at a later time in very bad health. We are trying to put an end to irresponsible adoptions at our shelter. It's not fair to the animals.
