The Commerce Animal Shelter's purpose is to provide a safe haven for the unwanted, lost, abandoned and mistreated animals of Hunt County, Texas. All animals will be treated with kindness and compassion and every opportunity made to find homes or rescue organizations for the animals in our care. The shelter will strive to be a respected and valued community resource.
Some of the pets we advertise on this website are available for adoption, others will contain the description that they are "Stray", which means they are lost pets and we are making an effort to publizise them to be reunited with their families. Other pets will be shown to be on an "Observation Period", which is for pets going though a temporary health and behavior screening and beginning medical treatment while waiting to be placed for adoption. Please read the description for each pet.
Dog adoptions are $100.00 and it includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, microchip, Heartworm test, being current on monthly Heartworm prevention and a fecal screening for Hookworms, Roundworms, and Whipworms.
