Animal Services


Please be advised that the Schertz Animal Shelter will be closed to the public due to renovations to the floors. The facility is anticipated to open in early May. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are pleased to announce that these extensive renovations will allow us to provide the very best shelter and care to animals seeking new homes. 

During the renovation period, Animal Shelter operations will proceed as normal. If you wish to adopt an animal, visit our Petfinder  to view all adoptable pets. If you would like to visit an animal, call us at (210) 619-1550 to set up an appointment (Appointments are available Monday - Friday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM). 

View Found Pets

If you have found a lost animal and would like to bring it to the shelter or need to claim a pet from the animal shelter, come by the Police Department, 1400 Schertz Parkway, Bldg. 6 (Monday - Friday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM). If you do not feel comfortable approaching a stray animal, call us at (210) 619-1550 so we can send an Animal Control Officer to assist. 

We apologize for any inconvenience and offer our sincere thanks for your patience and support during this time. If you have any concerns, please call us at (210) 619-1550.
