Animal Services

Our Animal Shelter


We strive to maintain a low-kill shelter. The employees and volunteers are dedicated to the welfare of animals and proud to be “The Little Shelter with a Big Heart.” It is our goal to continually review and evaluate animal protection and control issues, needs, services and facilities for the Town of Hickory Creek.

On Call 24 Hours


Animal Services Officers will only respond after normal working hours to emergency calls. Examples of emergency calls include animal bites, loose livestock , wildlife inside the home and  vicious animals.

A reminder to all Town of Hickory Creek residents; your cats and dogs must be registered with animal services. This is a town ordinance and there is no fee at this time.

Registering your animal makes contacting the owner easier if it is lost or injured without the owner’s knowledge. Animals can be registered at the town hall during normal working hours. Please bring a current (within the last year) rabies certificate from you pet’s veterinarian.

Adopting a Friend


At times, there is no one on duty at the shelter, and some of our pets are in foster homes. An appointment saves a wasted trip! Please call to make an appointment to see any of our animals. They will do their best to meet you at a convenient time.
