About The Shelter

Bastrop County’s animal program began in 1998. The Shelter started in an old barn with donated cages and equipment and has grown into what it is today. We continue to service the needs of the citizens and their animals of our 869 square mile county.

Our facilities include 90 large indoor/outdoor canine runs in three buildings and 28 indoor cat cages. We also use pop-up cages for overflows of cats, kittens, small dogs and puppies in our main building. We’re able to house just about any animal, bird, or reptile.

Hours of Operation
The Bastrop County Animal Shelter is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. We are closed Monday and Tuesday and on all Bastrop County holidays.

Adoption Process

Our pets can be viewed online, but we encourage you to visit our Shelter to meet the animals available for adoption. For animals that are ready to be adopted, an application is required and references can be checked. In most cases, animals can go home the same day they are adopted. We also invite you to bring your other pet(s) and children with you to help assess the compatibility of your new companion with the rest of your family.  Click here to see our Adoption Fees.
