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.

The shelter provides many services to the community, such as:

  • Intake of Stray or Found Animals
  • Pet Adoptions
  • Owner Reclaims
  • Sale of City Licenses for Dogs and Cats
  • Sale of Wild Animal Permits
  • Spay/Neuter Vouchers (SNIP)
  • Pet Re-Homing Assistance
  • Pet Behavior Referrals
  • Humane Education for Schools and Community Organizations
  • Disaster Assistance
  • Emergency Boarding
  • End of Life and Pet Cremation Services
  • Paws in Crisis Program (which provides free, temporary housing of the pets for victims fleeing domestic abuse)

For more information about any of the services listed above, please contact us.

Bringing a Pet to the Shelter

We are located at 25700 Interstate 30 N, Bryant, AR 72022.

If you are planning to drop off an animal at the Adoption Center, we ask that you please call us first or complete this online form and a staff member will contact you.

Bryant Animal Control cannot accept animals which were found outside our City limits, nor can we accept 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.

Cats and Kittens are available for viewing at the Pet Adoption Center within the PetSmart Store located in The Shoppes at Benton, 20460 I-30, Benton AR 72019. For hours of operation, please visit the PetSmart Website.

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?
