Staff members assist residents with a variety of animal-related issues, such as:

Animal Shelter

The shelter provides temporary housing to lost animals until they can be reunited with their owner or placed in the adoption program. The shelter issues all City of Rowlett pet registrations. Fees incurred due to adoption, redemption and registration help to fund shelter services.

Please feel free to stop by the shelter or call 972-412-6219 to speak with a staff member regarding any animal-related questions you may have.

The Rowlett Animal Services' primary function is to promote animal safety through responsible pet ownership education. The enforcement of Texas State laws and City of Rowlett Code of Ordinances is another responsibility as well.
