When an animal is dropped off at the Ft. Worth facility, they are assigned an animal ID number and the rightful owner has three days to claim their animal. That number will be needed to either claim the pet as yours, or adopt the pet from the shelter. If the pet is yours, the shelter fees will need to be paid to the town at Town Hall before picking up your pet. The receipt will need to be presented to the shelter to get your animal back. If the three day impoundment period has lapsed and the pet has not been claimed, dependent upon facility space limitations, animals may be put up for open adoption or euthanized. Therefore, if you are an animal owner, it is imperative that you claim your animal as soon as possible.
Please view our page for cats and dogs that have been picked up and need to be claimed, or are available for adoption and looking for a good home.
