Animal Services

The mission of the Lake Dallas Animal Services Department is to promote positive animal health, assist with responsible pet ownership, prevent the spread of animal borne diseases and protect the public from nuisance animals. Officers and volunteers always work with the animals' best interests in mind. We provide temporary shelter and strive to locate suitable homes for all healthy, adoptable animals. Officers also enforce State and local ordinances relating to animals located within the City of Lake Dallas.

Animal Shelter Angel Tree

At the Lake Dallas Animal Shelter, we are trying to make the holidays a little brighter for our furry friends. In order to do this, we need your help. By taking a tag from our Animal Shelter Angel Tree, purchasing the noted goodies and dropping them off at the shelter, you can give these pets the comforts of a home they don’t yet have. For more information or to donate, please contact Officer Chelsea Stachyra at

Angel Trees are located at:

  • Lake Dallas Animal Shelter
  • Lake Dallas City Hall
  • Corinth Vet Clinic

All locations are collecting donations as well. A HUGE Thank You to all who decide to participate!


As we have been a bit short staffed we have been trying to work hard to make sure everyone is taken care of but we also need to make sure our staff is also getting taken care of. We know that Saturdays are an important day so for everyone's convenience...

NEW HOURS will be:

Tuesday-Friday 9-4:30 and Saturday 10-2. We will be closed Sundays and Mondays. Please remember this is temporary and we will let everyone know when we can go back to normal hours. We appreciate everyone's patience with us during this time. (Updated 10/5/14)
