How do I surrender my pet?

To make an appointment to surrender your pet, please call 972-205-3570, option 2. 

You must be a City of Garland resident with proof of residency and provide a valid state ID or driver's license. There is also a $25 surrender fee due the day of the appointment. 

We encourage owners to attempt rehoming their pet with someone they know, or through one of the organizations listed below.
