NOTICE: Clear Lake Shores, Dickinson, and Santa Fe residents.

Your city council and administration have decided to leave the agreement that allowed the Galveston County Animal Resource Center to provide animal services to your cities.

As a result, the Galveston County Animal Resource Center will no longer be able to provide animal services to Clear Lake Shores, Dickinson, or Santa Fe, effective October 1, 2015. Residents of these cities will also no longer be able to surrender pets at the Galveston County Animal Resource Center.

After leaving the agreement with the ARC, Clear Lake Shores, Dickinson, and Santa Fe originally contracted with Texas Animal Control Solutions to provide animal services.

Pets of the Week

050316hawkeye.jpg 050316cedric.jpg

Meet Hawkeye (A002102) he’s a perky pointer mix who’s positive energy radiates any room he enters. Hawkeye loves to play fetch and will gently return the ball to you. He also like to play soccer by himself, he is quite a sight to see! Hawkeye originally came into the ARC suffering with a skin condition but thanks to the Heal A Heart Fund and the many wonderful donations, he was able to receive medical treatment.



Cedric (A003062), the GCARC Cat of the Week, is a Domestic Short hair buff tabby. Not quite orange, not quite cream - but just perfect! He is a about a year old, friendly and loves attention. Come meet handsome Cedric; he may be the new light of your life.


These pets are available for adoption this week at the special rate of $42.50. Pet of the week adoptions include rabies vaccination, spay or neuter and microchip.
