The Fort Hood Stray Animal Facility is located in building 4902 on 80th and Engineer Drive across from the Fort Hood Veterinary Center. We have a variety of cats and dogs waiting to join your family, wanting your unconditional love and attention. Our hours are Monday – Wednesday, Friday 12 pm – 4 pm. We are closed on Thursdays, weekends and Federal Holidays. Our phone number is (254) 287-4675.

The animals that we have for adoption are found on Fort Hood by animal control, or are relinquished by their owner. Animals brought in by animal control are held for 3 business days. If no owner comes forward, the pet will be placed up for adoption after the appropriate hold time. The adoption process is easy. When you find the pet that you would like to add to your family, we have you fill out a contract stating that you will care for your new pet at all times, and will also have your new pet spayed or neutered (sterilized so they cannot reproduce) within 30 days, or 30 days from the time a puppy or kitten reaches 6 months of age. This is a Texas state law and applies to all animal shelters. The price of adoption is $57. The adoption fee covers age appropriate vaccines, heartworm testing for dogs, fiv/felv testing for cats, microchip, deworming and flea/tick treatment upon intake. Dogs are also given oral ivermectin upon intake. So when you adopt a pet from us, rest assure that we are doing our best setting you up for a successful transition from our shelter to a new home. Be aware that when adopting a pet it might take a little while for your new addition to get use to its surroundings. Also, if this is going to be a 2nd or 3rd addition to the family it is recommended to introduce them slowly, and with supervision. It may take time for them to love each other. Adopting a stray animal is very rewarding for both the animal and the family. Please come by the Stray Animal Facility and fall in love with one of these sweet cats or dogs!

If you find a lost pet please contact the non-emergency line to the Military Police Station at 254-287-4001.
