The Gene Carey Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is an open intake facility for Lewisville residents and accepts any animal regardless of health, age, or breed. Unfortunately, due to space constraints and limited resources of care, the shelter may not be able to offer every animal adoption opportunity.
Animal Services regularly works with rescue organizations to help alleviate space and care capabilities, but encourage those wishing to surrender a pet to evaluate all other resources available prior to surrender.
If you are interested in adoption, please visit us during our hours of operation or check out our adoptable animals at PetFinder.com. Interested in adopting an animal? Find more information on adoption procedures and fees on the Animal Shelter Adoption Procedures and Microchipping web page.
For more information not listed here or if you have an animal related issue, please call the Animal Shelter during normal business hours. If you have an emergency, call 911.
