Animal Control

The Ingleside Animal Shelter was damaged during Hurricane Harvey.  Shelter operations are now being conducted out of the Aransas Pass Animal Control facility located at 601 North Avenue A, in Aransas Pass.  Ingleside Animal Control is still under the jurisdiction of the Ingleside Police Department.

The shared facility has dogs and cats available for adoption!  Ingleside boasts a high adoption rate and and works hard to return animals to their owners or place them in forever homes.  Adoption fees are $23.  If you are interested in pet adoption please schedule an appointment with Aransas Pass Animal Control through the Aransas Pass Police Department.  The number is 361-758-5224.

Due to the limited space in the facility, Ingleside Animal Control can no longer take in owner surrenders.  If anyone needs to rehome an animal, they are more than welcomed to post onto the Ingleside Animal Control Facebook page.

All fees will now follow the City of Aransas Pass fee schedule:
Adoptions are $23.  Impoundment fees are $10 for the first day and $8 for each additional day.  If an owner wants to claim ownership of a dog they will have to contact the Aransas Pass Police Department at 361-758-5224 to schedule an appointment.  There will be a $20 fee for non-spayed animals and a $10 fee for spayed dogs to receive a chip.

Ingleside Animal Control Officers also respond to other animal related calls, including strays, animal abuse, wild pest animals, and escaped livestock.  Animal Control calls for service are dispatched by the Ingleside Police Department.  For Animal Control assistance, call the Ingleside Police Department Non-Emergency number 361-776-2531.
