Animal Shelter


The Terrell Animal Shelter focuses on getting as many animals out of the shelter as is possible.

We are not a “no kill” facility; however, our daily goal is to limit as much as possible the number of animals we must euthanize in our facility. Rescue, Adoption and Owner Recovery is the foundational principal that drives toward our goal.
