Animal Services provides assistance including responding to stray animal complaints, investigating dangerous animals, investigating animal bites, impoundments, adoptions, barking dog complaints, trapping nuisance wildlife, loose livestock, carcass removal, ordinance enforcement, and is dedicated to helping protect the health, safety and welfare of both people and animals in our community.

Ordinance Enforcement
Animal Services investigates all animal-related complaints. In cases where an ordinance violation has occurred, the animal control officer may issue a citation. To report an animal complaint or an abuse/neglect case, call 817.743.4522.

Pet  Adoption
Animal Services is proudly affiliated with and offers pet adoptions in accordance with city ordinance.

Do you have room in your heart to offer a forever home to a deserving pet? Time is limited to find homes for the animals we have housed due to the small size of the shelter. We hate to say that animals may be euthanized at any time when the shelter becomes full. 

Residents are reminded that all dogs and cats must be registered with Animal Services and on a leash when outdoors. For more information about pet adoptions, registrations, and our leash law, contact Animal Services at or call 817.743.4516 or 817.743.4517. 

  • All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Adoption fees are $85 per pet which includes a (voucher for spay/neuter and rabies vaccination), microchip implanting, initial booster and heart worm test, and free one year city registration tag.
  • All animals under six months of age shall be spayed/neutered as soon as they reach six months of age
  • All vaccinations and any necessary medical treatments are the responsibility of the adopter
  • If a Keller resident, a city pet license must be obtained after a rabies vaccination has been given. This requirement is for the safety and well-being of the adopted animal.
Through an interlocal agreement between Colleyville, Southlake, and Keller a joint animal shelter is operated in Keller at 330 Rufe Snow Drive.

Within the city limits, pets shall be immunized against rabies and given a booster one year after the initial vaccination. Following the first two vaccinations, dogs, cats, and other household pets may be vaccinated at either one-year or three-year intervals, depending on the type of rabies vaccine used.
