If you are missing a pet locally, or are interested in adoption, feel free to stop by the shelter at 155 Watts Street between the hours of 7:30am and 4pm, Monday through Friday. Several pets are anxiously waiting for their owners to claim them, and many more are up for adoption.

The City of Vidor Animal Control Department's fundamental duties are to enforce local and state laws; investigate allegations of animal cruelty; investigate animal bites; and educate the public in the prevention of animal bites and diseases of animals.


 Education is centered toward diseases that spread from animal to animal, as well as animal to human. Vidor Animal Control stresses the importance of having animals vaccinated annually against rabies along with the importance of having animals spayed or neutered. Vidor Animal Control has pets for adoption. You can find these pets on Petfinder.com or on Facebook/Vidor Animal Control.  Please call Vidor Animal Control for fee amounts.  Fees are subject to change at any time.


If you have a lost pet, please contact Vidor Animal Control by e-mail at animalcontrol@cityofvidor.com or by phone at (409) 769-8718.


Pursuant to Texas State Law, all animals four months of age or older adopted from a shelter shall be spayed or neutered, and are required to have a current rabies vaccination administered by a licensed veterinarian.


During emergency situations, classes, or absences, there may not be anyone at the shelter.  If there is a problem in your area, please call the shelter at (409) 769-8718, leave a message, and an officer will get back with you as soon as possible.
