Happy Tails! Adopted already!!!


The New Rowlett Animal Shelter opened in 1997 and serves the community which surrounds it. The animal shelter has since implemented several new programs which include animal adoptions, veterinarian care, spay/neuter, and volunteer programs. The shelter also provides educational programs to the community schools, childcare facilities, as well as the City Departments. We hope to begin working also with the Rowlett Public Library to bring animals for the youngsters at Storytime. Adoptions are open to residents of any area. The shelter is also happy to announce that we have low-cost spay/neuter coupons. Call or come by the shelter for more information. The shelter now has a new auto attendant to help with shelter information such as, location and hours of operation, adoption fees, how to register your pet by mail and even an option to speak with a staff member. Be sure to listen carefully to the options available to ensure you get the proper information.

Donations Needed!!

The Shelter always needs your old newspapers for the kitties, bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, cat & dog treats, cat toys, dog toys (especially the long lasting chew kind), liquid or paste vitamins for dogs and cats, KMR, Just Born, or Goats Milk (for the babies), and grooming supplies. We will take any kind of dog food with the exception of Ol' Roy, but we prefer Purina Brands to keep it consistent.

Low Cost Vaccination Clinics

The Rowlett Animal Shelter hosts a LOW COST vaccination clinic to the public every month on the third Saturday of the month. Price lists are available at the shelter as well as online at just look under the special events on the Animal Services page.
