Lewisville Animal Shelter changes adoption process, will host Paws in the Park adoption event

Open in new windowThe City of Lewisville Animal Shelter has recently changed both the fee it charges for adoptions and the services that are part of the deal.

Previously, when you adopted an animal from the shelter, you would pay $50 for the adoption fee, then separately pay for sterilization of the animal. The process meant that you couldn't take an animal home immediately, or you could be delayed for days waiting for it to be spayed or neutered.

Thanks to a vote by the Lewisville City Council on March 2nd, the shelter will be increasing its fee to $90, but animals available for adoption will already be spayed or neutered, have all of their vaccines, have their city registration, and be microchipped, in case they become lost after you adopt them.

In addition to microchipping pets for adoption, the shelter will accept walk-ins to microchip for $15. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice, and is injected under the pet's skin. It can be read at most animal shelters and veterinarians' offices, and is used to reunite lost pets with their owners. The microchips do not carry an annual cost, according to personnel we talked to at the shelter, who said that anyone finding the pet would be able to get it scanned, and the veterinarian or animal shelter would know how to contact the owner. The chips are registered through 24Petwatch.com, which does offer additional services to proactively help locate a lost pet. The company also offers pet insurance.

Lewisville Animal Adoption Center’s annual Paws in the Park adoption event will be held Saturday, April 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Lewisville Animal Adoption Center in Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park, 995 E. Valley Ridge Blvd.

Paws in the Park will include K-9 demonstrations, low-cost pet vaccinations, food trucks, bounce house, petting zoo, youth safety classes, local rescue groups, vendors, and representatives of non-profit organizations and municipal shelters.

The event also will feature the Wiener Dog & Wanna-Be Wiener Dog Race starting at 9:30 a.m. A weenie dog applicant must have the appearance of a dachshund. A wannabe dog applicant must be a small dog (under 15 lbs.) of any breed or mix that wishes it were a dachshund and wants to race. The winners from each category will race in a final. Trophies will be awarded to the overall champion. Current rabies vaccinations are required for all racing applicants, and friendly dogs only. Applications for the race can be given over the phone at 972.219.3478 or at cityoflewisville.com.

You can read more about the animal adoption process here. The shelter is open for viewing from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday, and from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturdays. You can see a list of adoptable animals here.

The total cost to adopt ranges from $20.00 - $50.00 depending on residency.
