View a list of animals currently in our Animal Adoption Center

All animals adopted from the Carrollton Animal Services and Adoption Center must have a current rabies vaccination. If the new pet is not currently vaccinated, we will transport the animal to a local veterinarian to receive a rabies vaccination. The fee associated with the vaccination will be paid by the adopter to the veterinarian. You new pet must also be spayed or neutered.  If you new pet is not already altered, you will be required to choose a vet in Carrollton and we will deliver your pet for this procedure.  You will be responsible for all fees related to having your pet altered.  These fees will be paid by you directly to the veterinary clinic.

The Animal Adoption Center does not guarantee the health of any animal adopted. Any and all medical cost incurred by an adopted animal will be the adopters sole responsibility.

Adoption Procedures 

  1. Pick out an animal.
  2. Fill out all necessary forms.
  3. If necessary, make an appointment with a veterinarian in Carrollton to perform the spay/neuter procedure and receive a rabies vaccination.
  4. A Carrollton Animal Services Officer must take the animal to the veterinarian of your choice within theCity limits.
  5. If the animal is too young for the procedure, you must sign a contract stating that the procedure will be done by a provided deadline. Failure to have the procedure performed may result in citations being issued.
  6. Pick up your new pet from the veterinarian's office.

The Animal Adoption Center holds most stray animals for 5 days to allow time for an owner to reclaim his/her pet. Adoptions are completed on a first-come, first-serve basis unless more then one person is present at the same time to adopt a pet.  In this case a numbered ticket will be distributed to each perspective adopter and a drawing will occur.  The first ticket drawn will be provided the first the opportunity to adopt. We will not reserve an animal under any circumstances.
