The mission of Animal Care Services is to promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents and pets of Corpus Christi.

CCACS strives to provide a healthy and safe environment for strays, unwanted or homeless animals as well as injured animals brought to our shelter.  Our veterinarian and staff conduct health evaluations, vaccinations, and spay or neutering to have these furry friends find their forever homes.  All activities are in compliance with state, federal, and local laws and regulations.

Our Vector Control at CCACS maintains a plan to reduce the spread of mosquitos in our community and reduce the chances of vector-borne diseases.
