ROWLETT ANIMAL SHELTER
Call for hours.
ROWLETT ANIMAL CONTROL operates out of the Rowlett Animal Shelter at 4402 Industrial. The goals of the Rowlett Animal Control Department are to protect the citizens from uncontrolled animals, to ensure the safety and welfare of all animals, to enforce City Ordinances and State laws concerning animals, and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
Pet ownership carries with it many responsibilities. Pet owners must consider the health and well-being of their animals as well as the rights of other Rowlett residents. Many pet owners do not take this responsibility seriously; thus, their pets become neighborhood nuisances.
Pet owners need to be considerate of their neighbors by restricting their animals to secured or fenced areas of their own property. Loose animals scatter garbage, get into fights, produce unwanted litters, an harass and attach children and adults. Allowing pets to run loose also increases the likelihood that they will catch a disease, cause a motor vehicle accident or be injured.
OWNERSHIP: An owner is any person who owns, keeps, shelters, maintain, feeds, harbors or has temporary or permanent custody of a domestic or prohibited animal and allows it to remain on or about any premises occupied by the person who has control those premises.
