Adoption Policies and Procedures
The goal of the City of Lytle Animal Care and Control facility is to find forever homes for all of our animals.
Currently, there is no fee to adopt an animal from the facility. You ARE
required to bring back proof of rabies vaccination within seven (7) days of the adoption for dogs, and within fourteen (14) days of adoption for cats.
If proof is not received within seven days, a letter will be sent requesting the rabies proof. If no response to the letter is received, the Police will be asked to go to the location and see why the animal has not been vaccinated.
We do ask that you complete an adoption form and take time to get to know the animal before you choose to take it home. We encourage spaying and neutering the animal but currently do not require it. We do give potential adopters information that may help make the cost of the spay/neuter more affordable.
Mandatory Spay/Neuter - March 1,2013
March 1,2013, any animal adopted from our facility must be spayed or
neutered. Our facility will cover 25% of the fee with the adopter paying
their part directly to the veterinarian when they pick up their pet.
Animal Care & Control will transport the animal to the
veterinarian, with the new owner picking the pet up. This ensures that
the adopted animal goes to the vet, and does recieve the surgery.
Animal Care & Control is working with Lytle Veterinary Clinic and
Devine Veterinary Clinic for these surgeries. Both clinics have
generously supported our efforts to spay and neuter our animals. We are
grateful for their assistance.
