Adopt a Pet

Shelter & Ownership Regulations

Do you have room in your heart to offer a forever home to a deserving pet? Due to the small size of the shelter, time is limited to find homes for the animals we have housed.

Residents are reminded that all dogs and cats must be registered with the City of Saginaw animal shelter and on a leash when outdoors. For more information about pet adoptions, registrations, and our leash law, contact Saginaw Animal Services at (817) 230-0460 or (817) 230-0461.

Adoption Regulations

All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. Adoption fees are $20 per pet. A contract must be signed by the adopter agreeing they will spay / neuter the animal. All animals under 6 months of age shall be spayed / neutered as soon as they reach 6 months of age.

The adopter must agree to get the pet a rabies vaccination within 5 days and have a microchip implanted within 30 days of adoption. All vaccinations and any necessary medical treatments are the responsibility of the adopter. In addition, Saginaw residents adopting pets must also obtain a city pet license after a rabies vaccination has been given. This requirement is for the safety and well-being of the adopted animal.
