The Lampasas Animal Shelter only accepts animals from residents of Lampasas and Lampasas County. There is no fee to surrender an animal; however it is by appointment only. Please keep in mind that all dogs and cats over 16 weeks of age are required to have a current rabies vaccination at all times. If your animal is not current on its’ Rabies Vaccination, you must have that done before you bring the animal in. All livestock must be approved by the Shelter Supervisor before it can be surrendered. The owner of the animal must bring the animal in to sign the surrender form, and must be over the age of eighteen. Owners will be required to show ID with a current address to prove ownership and residency. Once you surrender the animal, it will become the property of the Shelter and will undergo an adoption evaluation. We cannot make any promises regarding the animal’s outcome and cannot call to notify you if we make the decision to euthanize the animal. Animal surrenders are for animals that would be good adoption candidates.
If we have one of your animals, please let us know as soon as possible. Animals on impound are held for three days if not wearing any identification and for five days if wearing identification (identification would include a rabies tag, a personalized tag, or a microchip). Proof of ownership is required to reclaim any animal, and a current rabies vaccination must be provided on all dogs and cats. After the Impound period is complete, the animal becomes the property of the Shelter, and the animal will undergo an adoption evaluation. If an owner fails to reclaim their animal, they are still responsible for all fees involved.
If you see an animal you are interested in meeting, please call to schedule an appointment to come to the shelter. We do not allow the general public into our kennel except during special events. This is to limit the spread of disease and allow us to have healthier animals available for adoption. We will introduce you in the lobby and if you would like more area to meet the dog, we can take you to one of the play yards depending on amount of staff on duty. We cannot guarantee the health of any of the animals we have available for adoption. We do not have a Veterinarian on staff, but we are trained to watch for signs of illness. We will be completely honest with any illness or behavior issues we notice in any the animals we have up for adoption. We will also try our best to explain the breed’s activity levels to ensure that this animal is a good fit for your lifestyle.All dogs available for adoption will have age appropriate distemper/parvo vaccinations, Bordetella vaccinations if old enough, general deworming, and will be treated for fleas and ticks. Our dogs have been tested for heartworms. Rabies Vaccinations are required to be done within seven days of adoption (or by 16 weeks of age), and the spay /neuter is required to be done within thirty days of adoption (or by 6 months of age). Both are at the expense of the adopter.
All cats are given age appropriate distemper vaccinations, general deworming, and are treated for ear mites, fleas and ticks depending on donated medication. Our cats have not been tested for Feline Leukemia or Feline AIDS virus. Rabies Vaccinations are required to be done within seven days of adoption (or by 16 weeks of age), and the spay /neuter is required to be done within thirty days of adoption (or by 6 months of age). Both are at the expense of the adopter. You must bring a crate/carrier to adopt a cat/kitten.
Once an animal has completed its impound time or is surrendered by its’ owner, it will be placed up for adoption, sent to one of our rescue partners, or will be humanely euthanized. If an animal does not meet our adoption criteria, it will not be placed up for adoption through our shelter. The animal will either be sent to one of our rescue partners or it will be humanely euthanized. In balancing the welfare of the animals with our responsibility to the public we recognize that not all animals are suitable for placement. When the difficult decision is made to end an animal’s life, we perform compassionate euthanasia.
For an animal to meet our adoption criteria it must NOT:

For a total solar eclipse to take place, the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the sun. Weather permitting, people located in the center of the moon’s shadow when it hits Earth will experience a total eclipse. The sky will become very dark for a few minutes, as if it were night. Normally, when looking at the sun, you can only see the photosphere, the bright surface.
However, extending about 5,000 km above the photosphere is the region of the solar atmosphere called the chromosphere. It is only seen during total solar eclipses, or with sophisticated telescopes, and its red and pinkish color gives the blackened moon a thin halo of color against the greyish corona. People in the path of a total solar eclipse can also see the sun’s corona, the outer atmosphere, which is otherwise usually obscured by the bright face of the sun. A total solar eclipse is the only type of solar eclipse where viewers can briefly remove their eclipse glasses, during the few moments when the moon is completely blocking the sun.
Starting at 13:35:25 (1:35 PM) on Monday April 8, 2024 the city of Lampasas will experience a total Solar Eclipse for 4 minutes and 24.3 seconds.
