Adoption Center/Animal Shelter

Bryant Animal Control & Adoption Center

The Adoption Center/Animal Shelter is host to approximately 2,000 animals each year. Whether the animal stays for only a few hours before being reunited with his/her family, or stays for several weeks before being adopted, we treat each pet with kindness and compassion. We are fortunate that our adoption rate is very high, with approximately 90% of adoptable and healthy pets are adopted from our shelter, transferred to rescue groups or placed with a shelter partner. While adoption is never guaranteed for any pet brought to us, you can rest assured that we will do everything we can to place every pet into a life-long home.

Bringing a Pet to the Shelter
If planning to drop off an animal at the Adoption Center, we ask that you please call us first. Bryant Animal Control cannot accept animals which were found outside our City limits, nor can we acted animals which are currently owned by someone who is not a Bryant resident, for the purpose of relinquishment. Also, the shelter may be experiencing a high
volume of animal intakes and may not be able to accept the pet you intend to leave with us on the day you stop in. For more information, call us at 501-943-0489.

Adopting a Pet
Adopting a pet is easy! Just contact the shelter for details about how to adopt and the fees involved, or visit our adoption page.

Off-Site Adoptions
Volunteers take animals the the PetSmart Store, located at 11400 Financial Centre Pkwy on most Sunday afternoons. To see if animals will be at the PetSmart Store this Sunday, check our FaceBook page on Sunday morning, when we typically post information about the animals who will be at the store. We also take animals to other off-site adoption events as time permits and we receive invitations. Want to host an off-site adoption event, or have us attend your event with pets for adoption? Just contact our Director with the date & time for your event, at least 60 days prior to the event date via email tpower@cityofbryant.com or by phone 501-943-0489.
