Animal Services





The City of Burleson Animal Services Division provides animal care and control services for residents living within the city limits of Burleson and animal adoption services to the greater Burleson community.

Animal Services responds to calls regarding stray animals, nuisance animals, animal bites, animal welfare, lost or found animals, and animal surrender or adoption. The staff also responds immediately to an injured animal, wild or aggressive animal and loose livestock. 

The Burleson Animal Shelter has set up a PayPal account so that our supporters can make donations online.


Access the Animal Care and Control Monthly Report for more information.

Get Involved
Get involved by becoming a walker, caretaker or by helping keep the shelter clean. Become a foster parent to pets that aren’t old enough to be adopted or donate items to make an abandoned animal’s stay at the shelter more comfortable.

Preparing for Your Pets Makes Sense

Preparing for your pets makes sense. FEMA created a brochure that addresses how to prepare, plan and stay informed when it comes to pets and emergencies such as fire, flood, tornado or terrorist attack.

A to Z List On Poisons
Of the more than 180,000 cases that the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center handled in 2012, most involved pets who had ingested human prescriptions. Even non-prescription medication is dangerous. Vetstreet compiled an A to Z list of some common pet poisons that should be on your radar. For more information on these and many other toxins, check out the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center website and talk with your veterinarian.
