Adopt a Pet

We strongly encourage individuals to find their next pet at our shelter! See available animals on the Taylor Animal Shelter Facebook Page or City of Taylor - Municipal Government Facebook Page.

Adoption Fee
$80, which includes spay/neuter, nail trim, rabies vaccination and city registration (if animal will live in city limits).

No fee to foster an animal. There is an application to be filled out/approval process. Foster parent must sign rabies/sterilization agreement.

Rescue Groups
No fee, must sign a rabies/sterilization agreement.

There is a 72-hour hold on animals picked up by Animal Control, to give an opportunity for the animal to be claimed by its owner(s). After the 72 hours the animal is available for adoption.

We work with various rescue groups (there are several groups that will take any type of animal, and then specific breed rescue groups) to find homes for the animals. Animals available for adoption are featured on the Petfinder website.

Those interested in adopting an animal should contact the shelter at 512-352-5483 or 512-352-5551 to make an appointment, as the Animal Control Officer spends time in the community and caring for the shelter.
