Rehome Your Pet

Due to the shelter continually being near or at capacity, Animal Services is limiting the number of owner surrenders per day and availability for appointments is already booked months in advance. In order to make an appointment to surrender your pet please call 972-205-3570, option 2. Please note that you must be a City of Garland resident with proof of residency in the City of Garland and a valid state ID or driver's license. We also ask that you bring current medical records of the animal if available. 

Owners will be asked to have the completed Pet Intake Form when the animal is surrendered to Garland Animal Services and to provide us with as much information as possible to help find an adopter for the pet.

Animal Services is unable to guarantee adoption for every animal received, it is encouraged for owners to rehome the pet with someone they know or through one of the below resources.
