How do I get a trap from Animal Services?

Traps are available to trap nuisance cats and various wild animals. The traps can be picked up at 600 Tower Street. A small, fully refundable deposit ($25 for small traps, $50 for larger traps) is required. When the trap is returned the deposit will be given back. Call 972-205-3570, option 4 to ensure trap availability as the number of traps are limited.

Trap guidelines include the following:

  • Check the trap on a daily basis. Leaving an animal in a trap for an extended period without notifying Animal Services constitutes Animal Cruelty under the laws of the State of Texas, and is punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.
  • Do not set the trap on the day of a holiday.
  • Do not set traps when inclement weather (temperatures below 32 degrees, rainy, etc.) may occur.
  • When an animal is caught in a live trap call us at 972-205-3570, option 1. Animal Services will remove animals from humane traps Sunday through Monday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
