Animal Services

Animal Service CenterThe City of Richland Hills Animal Services Center has many wonderful pets available for adoption to loving homes. In addition to providing and promoting the humane treatment of animals, Animal Services also protects the public by managing the Richland Hills animal population.

Animal bites and reports of cruelty to animals should be reported to Animal Services.

Rescues & Adoptions

The animals at the Animal Services Center are generally rescued by an Animal Services Officer, or a concerned citizen who has seen the animal running loose. However, some animals are brought in by citizens who can no longer care for them.

The Animal Services Center encourages citizens interested in adopting an animal to visit us during our regular operating hours. For more information, please contact us at 817-616-3769.

Pet Care Tips

The ASPCA website provides comprehensive pet care tips for dogs, cats and horses. 

The ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. The Society was formed to alleviate the injustices animals faced then, and continues to battle cruelty today. Whether it's saving a pet who has been accidentally poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing resources with shelters across the country, the ASPCA® works toward the day in which no animal will live in pain or fear.
