At this time, there is not an active animal control authority/animal shelter that picks up or houses stray animals in Johnson County. However, the Johnson County Sheriff's Department does respond to other animal-related complaints/issues.

Stray animals that are found in Johnson County may be transported to an open-intake facility such as the Humane Society of North Texas, located at 1840 E Lancaster Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76103, 817-332-4768, or the Humane Society of Central Texas, 2032 Circle Rd, Waco, TX 76706, 254-754-1454. It is always advisable to contact these locations prior to bringing the animal as their intake policies do change from time to time depending on the animal population in their facilities.
