Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience for both you and your new pet. Millions of animals are left homeless each year. If you are thinking about getting a new pet, consider adopting a homeless animal from Fort Bend County Animal Services.

FBCAS is your best source when looking for a pet. Not only do we have a great selection of adult animals for adoption, but we also have kittens, puppies and purebred animals. On average, purebreds account for about 25 to 30 percent of our dog population.  Here is where you can find all of our available pets. 

Steps to Adopt

  1. Visit Fort Bend County Animal Services during kennel hours

  2. Sign in at the front desk to ensure you see all the animals available. 

  3. Meet and greet available pets and select the right match for your family.

  4. If the animal is available and already spayed or neutered, you can complete your adoption and bring your new pet home. If your pet needs to be altered, you will come and pick up your pet after it has been altered.

Adopting a Pet from Foster

Some of our animals may be at a foster home.  Unlike pets at the shelter, pets in our foster program are not on a first come first serve basis; the foster has the first right to adopt the pet.  Please contact us at 281-342-1512 for more information about our pets in foster.

What to Bring for Adoptions

All you need to bring is a valid photo ID when you're ready to adopt. We accept driver's license, US or international passport, government or other official photo identification.
