Odessa Animal Shelter Changing Hours & Procedures to Better Serve Community
Topic: Odessa Animal Shelter
The Odessa Animal Shelter located at 910 West 42nd Street will be changing their hours and procedures to better serve our community and better manage the care of the animals that have been picked up as strays, abandoned or owner surrendered. Starting July 1, 2019 the shelter will be closed on Sundays and Mondays, however, we will be open on the following days and times to serve the community:
Tuesday and Thursday will be open from 12pm - 7pm
Wednesday and Friday will be open from 10am - 5pm
Saturday will be open every other weekend 10am - 2pm
We will be using Monday to bring in a veterinarian to our facility to spay or neuter animals that have been adopted, reclaimed, or rescued.
We will be changing the way we in-take animals. We currently accept animals brought in the front doors of the Odessa Animal Shelter as "Owner Surrender" or "Strays" at any time of the day. This has caused the Shelter to work late hours in order to make room and manage the continuous influx that seem to come during closing time. The Odessa Animal Shelter will change by taking "Owner Surrendered" and "Strays" by appointment only to better manage the animals coming in and to more efficiently serve our community.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling the Odessa Animal Shelter at 432-368-3527 or by coming to the Odessa Animal Shelter. Please advise the clerk that you are calling to make an appointment for an "Owner Surrender" or "Stray". The shelter clerk will schedule a time for you to come the Shelter to drop off the animal. Please be sure to have your Driver's License or I.D. card with you when you come to the Shelter.
