What do I do if my animal is impounded?

Call Police Department dispatch line at 281-592-2621 to arrange for the Animal Control officer to meet with you.

If you are the owner of an impounded dog, please follow these instructions:

  • Pay $15 to have the animal released to your custody from the shelter
  • Must have proof of a recent rabies shot
  • If no proof of rabies shot, an appointment must be made to get vaccinated prior to leaving the shelter. If the appointment is not kept a summons can be sent to you.
