Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Daingerfield Animal Shelter is a municipal funded shelter serving the animal control needs of Daingerfield, Texas. We get very few donations, and we don't have the funds to get the animals vaccinated or spayed/neutered. We have instituted many proactive adoption and animal awarness programs in the city and hope to eventually move towards a "no-kill" shelter. But right now we only have 14 kennels and when they get full we have to start putting perfectly good dogs down. By adopting one of our dogs you may be saving its life. We also have cats and kittens some times throughout the year. Just check our adoptable animals, we normally update everyday between 12 and 1.
This is volunteer run. Daingerfield Animal Shelter gets very little traffic, so the volunteers try to do what ever they can to help get the pets, adopted, fostered, or sponsored.
Come Meet our Pets:
Please call first at 903-645-3906, this is city hall. The shelter is open Monday-Friday 8-4:30 closed from 12-1 for lunch. Again please call first.
Our Adoption Process:
Adoptions in Daingerfield, costs $20 an animal. There is an application that you will need to fill out at the shelter while you talk with one of our staff. After your application is finished we will go over it and make sure the animal is in good hands. Also now when adopting an animal from us, in accordance to state law, you will have to take the animal to the vet to get it's rabies vaccination within 14 days of the adoption and within 30 days, or 30 days after an infant animal becomes 4 months of age, you will need to have the animal sterilized. Upon completion of this you will also need to send The City of Daingerfield written proof that you have complied. we are working on trying to make the process a little easier. We also will give you a rabies vaccination voucher from our local vet, so you're first rabies vaccine is already paid for. The animal's welfare is our foremost concern. In the past we have adopted out animals, only for them to come back to us at a later time in very bad health. We are trying to put an end to irresponsible adoptions at our shelter. It's not fair to the animals.
