About Animal Services

In July, 2015, the operations of the animal shelter was restructured to be under Community Integrity, which provides a customer driven approach to animal services, maintains a clean and inviting animal shelter, believes in professional and ethical performance of its duties, and providing a safe and healthy environment for all animals in our care.

During regular business hours, call 972-377-1898 for matters related to this service. Leave a message if no answer, officers will respond as soon as possible.

If you have an animal control issue during non-business hours and holidays, call the Denton County Sheriffs Office at (940) 349-1600 or (972) 434-5500.

During non-business hours and holidays, Animal Services officers will respond to emergencies and animal bites only.
