Friends of Rowlett Animals

Keeping you informed on Rowlett Animal news.

Rowlett Animal Shelter is full, again!   The shelter just announced they have NO empty dog kennels!
How very sad it is to announce that 29 days after a successful Empty the Shelter Day the animal shelter is completely full again.
Our community shelter had been fortunate to be running as close to a No Kill shelter for months, and no one wants to start putting any of our animals down due to running out of space. Rowlett is a small shelter with very limited space and low foot traffic. We need YOUR help to ensure no one is euthanized!

We really need some adoptions & rescues this week.  Please help spread the word.

Our pets depend on us to keep them safe, let’s not let them down!

Benefits to spaying/neutering your pet

Millions of animals are euthanized each year simply because they do not have a home.  Preventing unplanned pregnancies significantly reduces this number.

Links to some low cost Spay Neuter options.

While we wish we could be “out of business” and that all animals were safely in their loving homes, the reality is this just isn’t the case. One of the easiest ways to reduce the number of unwanted animals in shelters is to  spay or neuter your pet before there is an accident & you end up with an unwanted litter. Click to read more!

Yes, kittens are cute and lovable, but who is going to save the 1000 who we can’t find homes for? Please consider spaying/neutering your cat before you have an unwanted litter & the kittens end up in our animal shelters.

Benefits to spaying/neutering your pet

 If there wasn’t a problem with pet overpopulation, Friends of Rowlett Animals would not exist!

Please STOP ACCIDENTAL litters of dogs & cats! Spay / Neuter your pet.
