Services

 
The Taylor Animal Shelter provides many services, such as animal adoptions, lost and found animals, licensing, animal rescue within the city, and responding to the complaints of residents regarding neglected and loose animals.

Stray or injured animals


Any stray or injured domestic animal may be brought to the shelter for no charge if you're a resident of Taylor or Riverview. If you live in any other City, there is a drop-off fee of $100. The state-of-the-art shelter facility is located on Northline Road between the Department of Public Works Building and Lakes of Taylor Golf Club.

Adoption


If you are in search of a pet, consider adoption from the Taylor Animal Shelter, as many nice pets are available throughout the year. The Shelter can process adoptions until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays until 11 a.m.

Wildlife


The Taylor Animal Shelter will not accept any wildlife brought to the facility. It is against the law to transport wildlife without the proper permit. If you see a wild animal that needs to be sheltered, please call the shelter and Animal Control Officers will be dispatched to pick it up.

Rat Poison can be picked up at the Animal Shelter during normal business hours.
