ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL DEPARTMENT
Mansfield Animal Care & Control is a city shelter used to hold, care for and adopt out impounded strays and owner released animals.
Our purpose is to promote safe neighborhoods for people and their pets.
- * 2-FOR-1 Tuesdays each Tuesday we will feature two pets for the price of one
- * Free Feline Fridays each Friday cats are free to adopt
* - The adoption fee is waived but you do not receive the vouchers. A microchip can be given at the time of adoption for $20, and you are still responsible for having the animal sterilized and the rabies vaccination given. If the animal has already been sterilized and is up to date on all vaccinations that we have given the fee is $35
We will be suspending the trap program until further notice.
During business hours any calls concerning coyotes may be reported to Animal Care & Control at 817-276-4799 and after hours call the Mansfield Police Department Non-Emergency number 817-473-0211.
The Mansfield Animal Care & Control Department has received several calls and complaints regarding wildlife issues, including Coyotes. Due to the recent increase in wildlife related calls it has become necessary for Mansfield Animal Care & Control to research and develop a comprehensive plan of action for wildlife related calls. Therefore, Mansfield Animal Care & Control are working closely with Texas Wildlife Services, a Division of the USDA, who has provided a specialist in the study of, and if necessary the trapping or lethal enforcement of, urban wildlife.
In the meantime Mansfield Animal Care & Control would like to make the public aware of a few basic facts regarding wildlife. Read More ...
