Our featured pet this month is Dolly, a female Pit Bull mix. She was found with a big scar on her head from what appeared to be hot grease. She had obviously been mistreated and seems to be very grateful of the care and love she receives from the shelter staff. This little girl has been waiting patiently from over a year now for someone to give her the great home she deserves. Her loving and calm personality would make her a great addition to any family!
The shelter was blown away in a storm awhile back so we are waiting for all the paperwork and stuff to go through so we can rebuild. Due to the mess we are now leaving the gates leading to the shelter locked, so please call before coming so we can be expecting you and have the gate unlocked. Thanks.
Daingerfield Animal Shelter is a municipal funded shelter serving the animal control needs of Daingerfield, Texas. We get very few donations, and we don't have the funds to get the animals vaccinated or spayed/neutered. We have instituted many proactive adoption and animal awarness programs in the city and hope to eventually move towards a "no-kill" shelter. But right now we only have 14 kennels and when they get full we have to start putting perfectly good dogs down. By adopting one of our dogs you may be saving its life. We also have cats and kittens some times throughout the year. Just check our adoptable animals. Also, we aren't always able to get to a computer as much as we'd like to so it's always best to call us instead of email.
Adoptions in Daingerfield, costs $20 an animal. There is an application that you will need to fill out at the shelter while you talk with one of our staff. After your application is finished we will go over it and make sure the animal is in good hands. Also now when adopting an animal from us, in accordance to state law, you will have to take the animal to the vet to get it's rabies vaccination within 14 days of the adoption and within 30 days, or 30 days after an infant animal becomes 4 months of age, you will need to have the animal sterilized. Upon completion of this you will also need to send The City of Daingerfield written proof that you have complied. we are working on trying to make the process a little easier. We also will give you a rabies vaccination voucher from our local vet, so you're first rabies vaccine is already paid for. The animal's welfare is our foremost concern. In the past we have adopted out animals, only for them to come back to us at a later time in very bad health. We are trying to put an end to irresponsible adoptions at our shelter. It's not fair to the animals.
If you would like to come visit us, please do call for directions if you are not familiar with the area, we are NOT located at 108 coffey, that is our mailing address. Please call the City of Daingerfield at (903)645-3906 for directions or more information. There will be someone at the shelter Mon-Fri, 1pm to 4pm. Any other time, given the fact that we are a small city, it can sometimes be difficult to get a hold of me, as the shelter is part of public works, i.e. I have to go do other things like fix water lines, mow, etc. You can call the city and they will contact me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks
