Irving Animal Services, 4140 Valley View Lane, is currently closed for the next several days due to an animal that has Streptococcus equi. For the safety of the public and incoming animals, Animal Services has temporarily suspended adoption visits and owner surrender intakes unless necessary.
If a resident of Irving finds a stray dog, they are encouraged to hold the pet to prevent the spread of Streptococcus equi to another dog.
Irving Animal Services will reopen to the community when it can be done safely. The department apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates the public's patience. The goal is to ensure the safety of the animals and staff.
