Animal Control Services

We at the City of Liberty Animal Control Division strive to make our city a safe and healthy environment for our citizens and pets. We strive to educate the public and encourage pet owners to spay or neuter their pets. We enforce city ordinances and state laws to ensure the safety of the public and the welfare of the animals.

The goal of animal control officers in the City of Liberty is to get the community involved through community education and public awareness of the ever-growing population of abandoned and neglected animals in the City of Liberty.

Animal Control Officers provide:

* Enforcement of animal related state statutes and all ordinances under Article 2.01 of the City of Liberty Municipal Code as it pertains to animal welfare and public health and safety.
* Rabies control and quarantine.
* Animal cruelty investigations.
* Barking dogs, animals-at-large and animal sanitation complaints.

The City of Liberty has two full time State certified Animal Control officers.  Hours of operation vary depending upon the season and availability.


Any animal held in our facility not claimed after the seventh day will be put up for adoption. We do not offer spay or neuter services, a contract for you to have the pet spayed or neutered will be signed and enforced. The pet must be spayed or neutered within 30 days of the adoption date or a citation will be issued.  If you would like to adopt an animal or just visit and take a look, call 936-336-5666 or email by clicking on the above photos.  Photos of the animals available for adoption are also posted on

Volunteer Program

 Pals of the Pound is a volunteer program designed to assist the Animal Control officers in routine day to day animal care.  Approved volunteers may help with the animals by dog walking, cat socialization, grooming, creating animal information sheets, maintaining current photos or by fostering dogs and cats.  An application to become a volunteer is available at the Liberty Police Department, Liberty City Hall and Tracy Williams State Farm Insurance office located on the corner of Travis and Magnolia.  (note:  due to the size, the application may take a few seconds to download, please be patient).  Like us on Facebook
