Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center

Update: 2/20/2021

- The ​Shelter is now reopened to the public. Thanks to everyone for your patience in these troubling times. All operations are back to normal standards. Officers will respond to all calls, however we do ask that citizens that are trapping please wait until after this weekend when temperatures rise back up. Adoptions will continue as normal, but due to high occupancy of dogs in our shelter, owner surrenders for dogs will be pushed back 3+ weeks for appointments. Due to bad weather and the closing of the shelter, adoptions had to be put on hold, we appreciate citizens understanding and hope new potential owners come have a look at our available sweet animals here at the shelter.

Response to COVID-19:

**UPDATE 12/7/2020* In order to comply with recommended distancing guidelines, effective 12/7/2020, the Adoption Center will only allow a maximum of 2-3 people FROM THE SAME HOUSEHOLD in the lobby at any given time.  Please call 972.919.8770 from the parking lot and we will advise you whether it is safe to come in.  We appreciate your patience, and there may be a wait time.  All patrons visiting the center for any reason will be required to wear a mask.  Please be advised that you will be denied entry if you are not wearing a face covering.
