About the Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center

The Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center is a  state-of-the-art facility that has the capacity to concurrently house up to 37 dogs and 31 cats.

The large majority of our pets were stray animals picked up inside the city limits who were never reclaimed by an owner.

Farmers Branch Animal Services is an open intake shelter and our live release rate is maintained in the high 90s.  We are currently at 98% and hope to continue this trend.  We are able to do this by working very closely with our neighbors and friends to transfer out to local rescues and by using our foster program to better prepare animals for adoption.

An interior “Get-to-Know” room and an outdoor “Get-to-Know” courtyard enable prospective pet owners to become acquainted with their future pets on-site, prior to completing the adoption process.


Donations to the Animal Adoption Center are always welcome and appreciated. Items such as pet food (wet or dry), treats, toys, bedding, blankets and towels can always be utilized by the center, or visit to view the AAC wishlist.
