20200325 Mission Animal ShelterThe kennels at Mission Animal Shelter are nearly full, and with more animals coming in daily, adoption fees are being waived until further notice. More than 40 cats and dogs are available for adoption now.

“We are reaching out to our community to help us find homes for the many deserving animals waiting to be adopted because our shelter is at capacity,” Ernie Zapata, Health Department Supervisor said. “Right now with so many people home during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, it’s a great time to add a pet to their family. We have more dogs and cats coming in every day and need the support of animal lovers and all citizens.”


Out of an abundance of caution regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Mission’s Animal Shelter is not accepting any more animal surrenders. Mission animal control officers will continue to respond to emergency calls for service including dog bites, sick or injured animals, and removal of dead animals. The shelter is also not accepting any new volunteers at this time.

For more information on the animals up for adoption, please contact the Mission Pawsible Program at (956) 580-8741 Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The City of Mission Animal Shelter is located at 227 Abelino Farias.
