Wylie Animal Control has reopened with normal field service operations. In order to continue protecting the health and safety of our visitors and staff, we're implementing the following procedures while visiting our facility:
- All in-shelter volunteers, tours, and community service activities are suspended until further notice.
- No more than three visitors may be in the building at any one time. Due to the inability to control and safely follow social distancing guidelines inside the facility, face-covering of nose and mouth is required during your visit.
- The monthly shot clinic held on the first Friday of each month is operational. A face covering over nose and mouth during your veterinarian service is required. Social distancing protocols are in place for patients awaiting pet care to comply with issued state guidelines.
- Owned pets for surrender are done by appointment only. Please call 972-429-8047 to obtain requirements and to schedule an appointment.
- Available pets for adoption can be viewed by visiting City of Wylie Animal Shelter Adoptable Pets.

Animal Control is responsible for the enforcement of the City's animal control ordinances and the Texas Health and Safety Code, which pertains to the control, care and regulation of animals. Primary functions are to safeguard the public's health and safety and to ensure responsible supervision and humane treatment for all animals within its jurisdiction.
We DO EUTHANIZE animals at our facility. We DO NOT offer this as a service. You will need to re-home your un-adoptable, injured or diseased pet yourself or take it to a veterinarian to be euthanized. We respond to stray animals in the City of Wylie only. Not all animals are suitable for adoption. Animals that are obviously diseased will not be accepted at the shelter or made available for adoption. We house wild and dangerous animals that will not be made available for adoption. Animals that show any sign of aggression are not suitable for adoption. We do our best to adopt as many of our animals as possible.
