Georgetown Animal Services

Intake during COVID

On Monday, July 6, Georgetown Animal Shelter will begin operating by appointment again in order to promote the health and safety of community members and staff.  As of July 3, masks are required when visiting the shelter.

People need to call (512) 930-3592 to schedule an appointment prior to coming to the shelter.

If you have found a stray, instead of dropping off the animal at the shelter, please consider scanning the animal for a microchip, caring for the animal in your home, and posting on social media.  The shelter can scan for a microchip if you call first.  If you are not able to look after the animal, please make an appointment to bring in the stray animal.  To make an appointment, call 512-930-3592 or email

Surrendered animals will be accepted on a case by case basis to minimize the number of animals coming into the shelter.  If too many animals come in without an equal or greater number leaving, healthy cats and dogs will have to be euthanized. As always, the shelter accepts animals only from people that live within the city limits of Georgetown.  To make an appointment, call 512-930-3592 or email
