Who We Are

Nacogdoches Animal Services and Adoption Center is a city run animal shelter. Volunteers and staff work very hard to find homes for as many animals as possible. Our main focus is on dogs and cats, however we have had creatures great and small, walking and crawling, surrendered for adoption.


An extremely important and effective way you can help the animals in Nacogdoches County is to spay and neuter your pets. There is an explosion of unwanted dogs and cats in Nacogdoches right now and YOU can help reduce those numbers.

Need assistance? We now have a low cost spay/neuter clinic. Read about the costs, benefits, and discounts available at

  • NacCARES is a coalition of animal rescue groups working together with the shelter for the good of the Nacogdoches County Animals.

  • How can you become involved?

    One way you can help the animals, and reduce the euthanasia rate in the shelter is by fostering a dog or cat who has been surrendered to us. A home environment will help the animals with socialization and become more adoptable. Fostering is very rewarding and challenging, and all approved expenses are covered by the shelter or the Humane Society. You provide the love.

    All foster animals receive their vaccinations, are spayed/neutered, and checked for heartworms prior to being placed in a foster home.

    When calling the shelter....

    When calling the shelter about an animal please have their NUMBER handy as well as their name.

    If you have lost a pet, first check our Petfinder site to see if your dog or cat is on our Lost and Found or adoptable list. If he is not, come by the shelter and look for your pet. Your visit is the best chance your companion will have of getting back home to you. If you still have not found him, give us your contact information in case he/she is brought in to the shelter.

    New animals come to the shelter daily, so keep checking back.

    If are looking for a specific breed, size or temperament of an animal to adopt, please give us your contact information so we can alert you if someone matching your description comes in.

    Our goal is to reunite or rehome each and every animal who comes into our care. EVERY dog and EVERY cat deserves a loving home.

    How to Adopt a Forever Friend

    Our adoption fee for an unaltered dog or cat is $20.00 plus the cost of rabies vaccination and spaying or neutering your new companion. Animals who are already spayed or neutered have a $30 adoption fee. Animals older than 6 months who have not been altered can be done thru our low cost spay/neuter clinic or the vet of your choice.

    For more information on the clinic including costs, discounts, and assistance, go to

  • Website:
  • ALL animals under 6 months old who are adopted from the shelter MUST be spayed or neutered by the time they are 6 months old. NO exceptions. This is one way we can get a handle on the pet overpopulation crisis in Nacogdoches County.
