The City of Midlothian Animal Services includes a municipal Animal Shelter that serves the city and citizens of Midlothian Texas. We take pride in caring for stray animals that we pick up and for animals that are turned into the shelter or that are surrendered.

If you have a pet you can no longer provide for and you can provide proof of residency within the city limits of Midlothian, the animal may be surrendered upon approval. Please contact the shelter for further details.

Adoption Policy

Upon intake of an adoptable animal, we hold the animal 72 hours while we try to find the animals owner through our lost/found pet forms, social media and checking for microchips.  After 72 hours animals may be available for adoption.  Appointments may be made for adoptions; but multiple appointments may be made with citizens for the same time. Animals are adopted on a first-come / first-serve basis. We do not "hold" animals for individuals.

Contact Animal Shelter for more details on pets and to set up a visitation appointment at 972-775-7628

All potential adopters must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid driver's license or state ID. 

We do not charge adoption fees; however all adopters must sign agreements to vaccinate and sterilize animals in accordance with state law. Failure to vaccinate and sterilize animals may result in citations.
