Animal Control hours changed

April 6, 2013

The hours of operation for the Hood County Animal Control facility have changed, hopefully to provide more convenience for the public, Hood County Sheriff’s Office Captain A.T. Vines said.

The new hours, implemented on Monday, are now 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. The facility will be open 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday for adoptions only. The third Saturday of each month will be the date for off-site adoptions from revolving locations around town, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Vines said that after the hours were extended to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays two months ago, not a single adoption was done after 5 p.m., and not a single person came to the facility after 6 p.m.

“We’re trying to be more flexible to meet the public need, so we can adopt more pets,” Vines said.

Also, Animal Control now can take all major cards, as well as checks and cash, for payment of the recently set adoption fees.

The fees are $75 for a pet that will need to be spayed or neutered, or $15 to cover the cost of a rabies shot if the pet has already been altered.

Animal Control is at 240 Bray St. just off Coke Court and Highway 377, west of Granbury. For more information, call the facility at 817-573-4277.
