About the Department

The mission of the Lake Dallas Animal Services Department is to: 

  • Assist with responsible pet ownership
  • Prevent the spread of animal borne diseases
  • Promote positive animal health

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.
