Bring in a donation, take home a pet

Starting Monday, June 10 through Friday, Aug. 30, Tyler Animal Services is offering adoptions for dogs and cats at no cost.
People interested in adopting a pet will need to bring a donation of at least 25 pounds of dog or cat food in unopened bags, two bags of white towels or washcloths or an unused doghouse. Donations will cover the adoption fees.
All donated food will be placed in the Pet Food Bank to help those that are having financial trouble and are considering surrendering their pets.
“By giving these families a helping hand, we are able to keep pets in their homes and reduce the number of animals coming to the shelter,” said shelter manager Shawn Markmann.
Towels and washcloths will be used at the shelter to clean and comfort the thousands of animals that come in each year.
Dog houses are distributed to those homes that we find during welfare checks that need adequate shelter for their pets.
If you would like to see the animals that are available for adoption at the City of Tyler Animal Shelter located at 4218 Chandler Hwy. or find and download the adoption application, visit our website Applications should be submitted to our adoption counselor at
All adoptable animals are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption.
