  • Quarantine: PVAS is a registered quarantine facility, licensed and inspected annually by the Texas Department of State Health Services Zoonosis Control. Animal Control Officers from the municipalities we serve bring animals to be held under quarantine to our Trenton Center facility. PVAS staff will contact owners regarding the specifics of individual quarantine cases.

    NOTE: Call 9-1-1 if a person has been attacked, bitten or scratched by a domestic or wild animal and needs emergency care; if emergency care is not required, call your local municipal animal control department. All animal bites must be reported to your local municipal animal control department.​

Top Reason to Spay/Neuter your Pet

The benefits are not limited to population control but have amazing effects on your pet's health as well. According to Banfield Pet Hospital, neutered male dogs live, on average, 18 percent longer than their unneutered counterparts and spayed female dogs live, on average, 23 percent longer than unspayed females


Spaying female dogs and cats eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer. Neutering male dogs and cats reduces the incidence of prostate cancer.
