Taylor Animal Control

Adopting a friend

Take me home!!!


Who We Are

Taylor Animal Control makes every effort to place the animals into loving homes with responsible people who are willing to make a lifelong commitment to the pet. Potential adopters are counseled about the responsibilities of pet ownership before adoption. The key to reducing the number of unwanted animals is population control and education; each adopted animal must be spayed or neutered.

Adopting a friend

Please call (512) 352-5483 before coming to the shelter since we do spend time out in the community. We will return all phone calls in response to adoption of our animals within 24 hours.

We do not do out of state adoptions and adoptions are on a first come/first serve basis as long as the applicant is an approved match for the pet. Adoption fee is $80 for all pets. $80 fee covers alteration of the animal, rabies vac, nail trim and city registration tag if they live within city limits.
