    • Your pet must be a minimum of 3 months old and/or 4 lbs

    • Dogs must be leashed and/or in carriers

    • Cats must be in carriers

  Complete this application before you come to the shelter; it will speed up    the process!

 


 

  • Owner Requested Euthanasia: If you feel your pet is at the end of their life you may surrender them into our care. Our team will work to treat any medical conditions or a rescue partner that can help them further. Should the animals condition require euthanasia it would be performed by our medical team.  Once your pet is surrendered into our care, you may not be able to adopt them back.

  • 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 Reasons 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 un-spayed 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.

At this time, PVAS cannot offer spay and neuter services to publicly owned animals. Please check out these other low-cost services in our community for your spay and neuter needs:
