Loveable animals are seeking fur-ever families. If you are interested in adoption, the following steps will guide you through the process:

  1. Email the shelter: , or call 903-657-7651.
  2. Provide details of which animal you are desiring to adopt. If this animal is still available, the Animal Center will provide you an adoption application. 
  3. Please complete and return the application promptly to begin the placement review process. After review, the Animal Center will notify you of approval or denial for adoption. 
  4. If approved, call the center and we will finalize the adoption process over the phone. Once finalized, we will email an adoption agreement to sign and return. 
  5. Upon receipt of the signed adoption agreement, we will assist you in scheduling pick-up for the newest member of your family!
