Surprising the Family with a Pet?

Kitten in Gift 360x250

Before you decide to surprise your family with a new pet for the holidays, consider the following:

  • What are the ages of your children? Different pets are appropriate for different ages.
  • Does your family really want a pet? Not all children want to have pets around the house, nor do they want the large responsibility of full-time pet care.
  • Have you thought about the cost? Pets require food, vaccinations, supplies and sometimes, emergency visits to the veterinarian.

Have an important conversation to discuss these things with your family before adopting a pet. If you feel that everyone is ready and committed, visit your local animal shelter. The adoption fee at Garland Animal Services is only $80 and includes spay or neuter, rabies vaccination and City registration. Help give a homeless pet a new chance at life! Animals can be adopted from two locations in Garland:

Garland Animal Services 
600 Tower St.
Garland, TX 75040

Pet Adoption Center
813 Main St.
Garland, TX 75040

See adoptable animals, local services and more at

If you are not in the market for a new pet, but would like to make a donation for our homeless animals, please take a look at the Garland Animal Services Wish List.
