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 receive 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.
For more information, please call 830-709-3832.
Santiago Morantez was recently promoted to a
full-time Animal Control Officer position.
Welcome to the City of Lytle Animal Care & Control homepage
. Our facility opened January 30,2010. In the three years we have been open, we have adopted out 1000 dogs and cats. The facility is staffed by one full time animal control officer, Santiago Morantez, who is assigned to the Lytle Police Department. We also have a great group of volunteers, headed up by Betty Kroeger, that have stayed very active with us since the beginning. Stop by our facility at 17971 FM 2790 South, or come by one of our events, and meet the folks who have made this facility such a success.
Animal Care and Control provides the following services:
- Operates the animal shelter and provides humane care for animals in the shelter.
- Responds to both emergency and non-emergency calls.
- Patrols the streets looking for
strays, abused animals, and
escaped or lost pets.
While the City of Lytle no longer requires pets to be licensed, the City
does still require that all animals, four months and older, be
vaccinated against rabies. Failure to vaccinate will result in an additional charge, should your animal be picked up by Animal Control.
