Update: 3/8/2021

- The ​Shelter is now reopened to the public at normal capacity. Masks are strongly recommended for all patrons.  All city staff members are required to wear masks.   Normal field operations have resumed.  Adoptions will continue as normal- we are operating on a first come, first served basis and appointment are not needed.  Trappers may resume normal trapping. Owner surrenders will continue to operate on an appointment only basis for residents of Farmers Branch only.  Proof of residency is required and there may be a waiting period of 7-14 days before we can schedule an appointment- all appointment scheduling is based on current occupancy.

Thank you for your patience, and we hope you are all staying healthy!
