Irving Animal Services allows anyone looking for a companion animal to adopt from our shelter. Adopters must present government-issued identification and pay the appropriate adoption fee. In addition to the adoption fee, Irving residents must purchase a city license.
Animals being adopted will be:
A list of all current animals in the shelter is available here.
All adoptions are done on a first-come, first-served basis once the animal is available for adoption. No holds can be done, no deposits can be made and no animal can be adopted prior to its available date.
Adoption of an animal means responsibility for the care of the animal and meeting of the conditions set forth by the city ordinance and public health laws.
The adopter will be responsible for having their companion animal vaccinated for rabies, if not already done prior to adoption. If you fail to have the adopted animal vaccinated for rabies within the given date, the City of Irving will file cases in municipal court based on Chapter 6 of the Irving Code of Civil and Criminal Offenses.
The City of Irving Animal Services does its best to maintain the good health of the animals in its care, but it cannot guarantee there are no underlying problems with any animal. A health check with your family vet is strongly recommended within 72 hours.
For more information concerning our animals, contact the City of Irving Animal Services Department at (972) 721-2256. Thank you for your love and proper care of animals.
