About Our Shelter...
The Commerce Animal Shelter is a small rural shelter that cares for and makes every effort to find the perfect homes for orphaned dogs and cats. We strive to educate the public regarding animal care and will assist our community in any way we can.
We accept abandoned, stray and owner surrendered dogs and cats from Hunt County Texas and after a health screening and behavioral screening pets are placed for adoption. All adoptions include the pet's spay/neuter and Rabies vaccine. Other medical treatment is available for low cost fees, such as Distemper/Parvovirus vaccines, Bordetella vaccine, Microchip, Heart worm test, Heart worm preventative, Intestinal parasite testing and deworming.
Through the assistance of donations from loving people we can begin necessary medical treatment for some of our shelter orphans. We can begin vaccinating puppies against Distemper and Parvovirus, begin treatment for intestinal parasites, heart worm testing for adult dogs and we have even been able to assist pets with mange treatment. We would be happy to accept donations to medical treatment for any one of our orphans while they wait for forever homes. The Commerce Animal Shelter is open Mon - Fri. from 9:00-4:00 for adoptions.
We will advertise certain days where we hold special off-site adoption events as well as open Saturdays.
Let us know if you would like to schedule a Saturday or Sunday appointment to meet our shelter pets. We would be happy to assist you in your adoption.
Please contact us for further information about any of our adoptable pets. We would be glad to assist you!
We also welcome rescue organizations with current 501 c3. Just email your paperwork and let me know who is an authorized transporter, and the pet's name and ID# that you would like to tag for rescue.
