About Our Shelter:

We are the Glen Rose Animal Control. We serve the City of Glen Rose and Somervell County residents. No animals outside of the county may be taken in at this facility. We do not charge an impoundment fee. There are two ACOs who run the facility Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
We enjoy helping animals and want to see them all get homes. We know that is not possible in all cases, but we do our best to work with rescues and network our animals to place them in forever homes. We have a small kennel area, so we fill up fast.

Our Adoption Process:

All adoptions are on a first-come, first-serve basis, pending adopter information.
All puppies/dogs, kittens/cats must be vaccinated against rabies and sterilized by the new owner if not already done.
To take home a pet:
First, come see the animal to make sure they bond with you and that you bond with them.
Next, prepay at the vet clinic of your choice to have them neutered/spayed and rabies vaccination done when old enough. Bring that receipt to us. If your vet will not allow you to prepay, you may bring a letter of recommendation from a vet you use.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
