How did you hear about us?
What is the reason for your visit today?

Section A - Adopting a Pet

Is everyone who lives with you here with you today, INCLUDING all your kids and dogs?

Section B - Surrendering an Animal

B1 - Surrendering Your Pet

Owner Surrender - Have you made an appointment to surrender your pet?

B2 - Surrendering A Stray

Note: The shelter DOES NOT accept stray or outdoor cats.

The shelter is nearly FULL so we can only take in urgent cases. If we provide you with resources, are you or someone you know able to keep the animal while we help you find the owner or a new home?
If you are surrendering an animal there is a $50 fee per animal. If you're surrendering your own pet, an appointment with the Waco Animal Shelter is required. To make an appointment, please call 254-750-7090. There is currently a 4-6 week waiting list.
If you are adopting, please know that visitors are prohibited from entering the adoption kennels without a staff member an approved volunteer present for an Adoption Walk-Through. ​ If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask anyone wearing a Blue or Orange t-shirt.
