City of Odessa Frequently Called Numbers
July 1st, 2016I called to ask for assistance to put my 17 yr old kitty and best friend to sleep after failed attempts to save her. The gentleman arrived within minutes and very gently and compassionately administered the newer medication that shuts down the brain first, then the bodily functions. Its so much more humane to slowly do it this way now. My kitty kept fighting the sleep that was trying to overtake her. The medic said he could tell my Missy had been well-taken care of and was fighting to stay with me. It was breaking my heart, but the words and comfort the medic was offering made all the difference in me not losing my mind. His experience and understanding was a big comfort to me losing a long-time loyal and loving friend. I so appreciated that gentleman's expertise and heart and I am absolutely indebted to Odessa Animal Control for bringing their best heart-felt service to my home. I'm proud of their commitment to Odessa's pet owners. Thank you so much! K. Taylor
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
