Keller Animal Control is a division of Keller Police Department located at 330 Rufe Snow Drive on the back side of the Police Department. The entrance is located on Pate Orr Drive. Please call before visiting our shelter as we have a small staff , which often gets called out on animal control duties and are not always available at the posted times. Hours of operation are 8am-4pm (Monday/Saturday), 8am-5pm (Tuesday/Friday) and 8am-6pm (Wednesday/Thursday). All adoptions are first-come, first serve. Adoption fees are $20.00 and a contract must be signed by the adopter, stating they will spay/neuter the animal (animals under 6 months of age shall be spayed/neutered when they reach 6 months of age), obtain a rabies shot and have a microchip implanted within thirty (30) days of the adoption. If documents of agreed upon terms are not provided within the stated timeframe, a citation may be issued . If a Keller resident, a city license must be obtained after a rabies vaccination has been given. These requirement are for the safety and well being of the adopted animal. All vaccinations and medical treatments are the responsibility of the adopter. Time is limited to find a home, due to the small size of the shelter. Animals may be euthanized at any time when shelter becomes full. For more information contact the shelter at (817) 743- 4516 or 17.

As a former volunteer at this shelter I know it is a very inadaquite shelter. Too small, understaffed and filthy.
There is no separation of sick and healthy animals. Disease runs rampant. Volunteers are not welcome at this shelter. It is ran by the police dept. that has no experience in running an animal shelter. The shelter does not provide spay/neutering, vaccines or testing of any of the animals. The adoption fee is only $20.00. There is no follow up on animals that were adopted. This just adds to the overpopulation of unwanted animals. This shelter needs to be closed.
Cons: outdated and too small

The shelter has sick animals in the same area as well animals. Last May I say a cat that had discharge coming from its eyes and nose in a cage next to well cats.
I also saw 2 puppies that couldn't control the movement of their heads. The puppies had different mothers. I later found out this can be caused from mothers being exposed to parvo during pregnancy. This was a horrible site. I still wonder what happened to both of these litters of puppies.
Pros: The staff were friendly.
Cons: The shelter is too small. Puppies got parvo from their mother's who were exposed when they were pregnant!
