Reclaiming

If you saw the animal on our website please email Abilene Animal Services or call 325-698-0085 and give your name, number, address and the Animal's ID number from the website.

You must have valid government issued ID to reclaim your animal.

Animal Services Fees

All animals reclaimed will receive a microchip, and we will charge a $15 fee.

Any medical services provide to the animal while in custody of Animal Services must be paid in full before animal is released back to the owner. These fees do not represent any fee amount of a citation in which an Animal Services officer may issue at their discretion for violations your animal has done.
