Pflugerville Animal Shelter is closed to public until further notice. Although closed, we are still available for fostering, adoptions and reclaims. Please contact or 512-990-7387 to set up an appointment.  Anyone coming onto the shelter facility grounds must wear a face mask. 

Beginning Wednesday, May 27th, Animal Service Officers will resume responding to animal-related calls in the field Monday through Friday only, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. The shelter remains closed to the public but curbside stray intake will be done at the shelter gate, Mon-Fri between 8a-5p.  If you find a stray dog inside Pflugerville city limits, you can call 512-990-7387 for an officer to respond or bring it to the shelter gate and call from the gate for intake Mon-Fri between 8a-5p .  Pflugerville Animal Shelter is only accepting stray kittens under 3 months at this time.  Stray cats over 3 months old will not be picked up or accepted unless sick or injured. For emergencies after hours, dial 911. 

If a resident finds a stray while officers are off duty, they can help reunite it with its owner by taking the animal to the nearest vet or Petco to be scanned for a microchip, posting info on the animal and where it was found on the Pflugerville Lost and Found Pets Facebook page, Nextdoor, and other social media platforms, and put out posters in the area it was found. Many animals are found with 2 blocks of their home. Finders can also hold on to the stray dog and call the next business day officers are on duty.  If a resident finds a wild animal in need of assistance while officers are off duty, they can contact the appropriate Travis County Wildlife Rehabilitator listed on this Texas Parks & Wildlife page. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work together to keep our community and animals as safe and healthy as possible!
