The Terrell Animal Shelter focuses on getting as many animals out of the shelter as is possible.
Rescue, Adoption and Owner Recovery is the foundational principal that drives toward our goal
We strive to keep the number of animals we have to euthanize as low as we possibly can in a city environment. Although we are not a "no kill" facility, this goal is paramount to what we do here. The Terrell Animal Adoption Center works to unite owners with their lost pets and to promote animal adoption and rescue of healthy, unclaimed, unwanted, stray and abandoned pets within the city limits of the City of Terrell. The City of Terrell can not pick up or house animals from outside the city limits.
