NOTICE: Due to COVID 19 we are closed to the public at this time. We are reviewing requests for owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Call Center at 361-826-2489 or 361-826-4630.
Making the decision to give up your pet can be a difficult one. We encourage you to exhaust all possible avenues of rehoming your pet before bringing a pet to Animal Care Services.
We only accept owned pets when kennel space exists and by appointment only. Appointments are required so the shelter can ensure we have the necessary resources and available housing to take in your pet. Please be aware that owned animals brought to CCACS can be immediately humanely euthanized if inadequate space exists, if the animal is not highly adoptable, or if the animal appears to be ill or injured. To make an appointment, please come to 2626 Holly Road and fill out the appropriate form.
