Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center
The Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center was opened to the public on May 7, 2009. The state-of-the-art facility has the capacity to concurrently house up to 37 dogs and 31 cats.
An interior “Get-to-Know” room and an outdoor “Get-to-Know” courtyard enable prospective pet owners to become acquainted with their future pets on-site, prior to completing the adoption process.
Note about Regular Adoption Fees
The standard adoption fee is $85 and is a great value as it includes over $200 of veterinary services including heartworm testing for dogs over 6 months of age, feline leukemia testing for cats over 6 months of age, sterilization, rabies and selected vaccinations, microchip, and a free veterinarian exam at participating vet clinics.
Volunteers are welcome at the Animal Adoption Center and duties include cleaning kennels and cages, walking dogs, feeding the animals and basic grooming such as brushing or bathing animals. All volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation class which occurs on the first Saturday of the month at 11 a.m. at the Animal Adoption Center.
Please complete the appropriate forms listed on the Volunteering information page, and submit to the Animal Adoption Center staff.
