UPDATE: Beginning June 1st.
The Animal Shelter is open with only one group allowed in the lobby at a time to maintain social distancing. Please call to make an appointment to visit the shelter so that we can ensure you can be seen when you arrive.
If you do not have an appointment, you may be asked to remain outside until the current appointment is completed or until the next available time slot.
The Lampasas Animal Shelter is a collaborative effort between the City of Lampasas and the County of Lampasas for the housing of stray and unwanted animals. The Lampasas Animal Shelter is under the direction of the Lampasas Police Department. We accept animals from Lampasas County regardless of health, age, breed or temperament. We strive to assist the participating entities in enforcing the state law and local ordinances, and to otherwise serve our citizens.
What the Department Provides to the City
Since our opening in September of 2009, the shelter has been providing services such as:
- Stray admission
- Owner surrender admission
- Lost pet reclaims
- Pet adoption
- Education to the public regarding animal health and the benefits of spay/neuter
All animal control calls and complaints must be dispatched from either the Lampasas Police Department (city residents) or the Lampasas Sheriff’s Office (county residents). All employees at the shelter are licensed Animal Control Officers that can answer basic law and ordinance questions regarding animal control issues, but we do not respond to animal control calls or complaints.
Our Commitment to the Community
Our mission is to provide a safe and healthy environment for stray animals awaiting return to their homes, and to offer adoptable animals an opportunity for placement into permanent, responsible, and safe homes where they are valued.
The Officers of the Lampasas Animal Shelter
The Lampasas Animal Shelter is staffed by three full time employees that include the Shelter Supervisor and two Animal Shelter Technicians that are also fully training Animal Control Officers.
