About Us


Our facility stays full. Please do your part in helping all these wonderful animals find happy and loving homes.

 We accept any and all donations generously given by people who care what happens to our animals. A list of items we are currently in need of : Pet taxis of all sizes (we use them for evacuation during a disaster), Dog and cat food, Cat litter, and treats for both dogs and cats. Any Indoor/Outdoor carpet or carpet remnants would also be greatly appreciated!

Adopting A Friend

Our adoption fee is $30.00 in the form of a money order or check only. We can not offer refunds on any animal adopted from this facility. The adoption fee does not include any vaccines, and we recommend a wellness check by your vet upon adoption. All cats and dogs that are adopted from this facility are required by state law to be spayed or neutered within 30 days of the adoption, if they are old enough, otherwise they must be spayed or neutered at six months of age. This service is provided to you at no cost by the local Humane Society.

Who We Are

We are a Shelter made up of 3 Officers and 2 Kennel Assistants. Lead Officer and Supervisor C. Leake has been an employee of Aransas County since December 2007. Officer P. Milhim has been an employee of Aransas County since May 2010. Officer F. Torres has been an employee of Aransas County since February 2011. Kennel Assistant K. Jones has been an employee of Aransas County since November 2009. Kennel Assistant L. Cross has been an employee of Aransas County since February 2010.

We are a county shelter serving the city of Rockport, town of Fulton and all of Aransas County. Our guests are animals found running loose and pets given up by their owners. All animals in this facility are posted on Petfinder and also checked against our file of lost pets. If the animal is not claimed within five days they are evaluated and placed for adoption. Our goal is to see them all go to good homes where they will be happy. Please help us make that happen.

Come Visit Us

Our shelter is located at 872 Airport Rd. We are open 7 days a week from 8 am - 6 pm. Please call or email us at acanimalcontrol@aransascounty.org  to schedule an appointment to see our animals, as we are not always at the shelter. We have a facility full of animals looking for a chance to come home to you!
