Animal Shelter Tours
Tours of our Adoption Center can be scheduled for any size group. For children’s groups, a 20 minute video on animal safety and a group discussion afterward can be included. Our guided tours will show how our animal shelter provides not only a home for lost and unwanted animals but offers a wide variety of services for the citizens of Corpus Christi. Due to the high volume of visitors on the weekends, shelter tours are not available on Saturday or Sunday.
The City's Animal Care Division promotes responsible pet ownership and caring treatment of animals. We work to keep our community safe through animal control services. Our program helps to reduce unwanted stray animals, minimize the threat of diseases and prevent injuries both to animals and those caused by animals.
Animal Services personnel are available to staff booths, display materials and have animals for adoption at community events. We have a new satellite cat adoption partnership with Petco in Calallen!
Animal Services personnel are available to speak to community groups of any size. Topics include City of Corpus Christi Animal Ordinances and Services, Adoption Program including off-site locations, Wildlife in Corpus Christi, A Career as an Animal Services Officer, Education including Pet First Aid, just to name a few. We would appreciate at least one week’s notice prior to the date of any presentation.
