The City of Brenham Animal Services Department operates the new, state-of-the-art, Brenham Pet Adoption Center. We are responsible for Animal Control services for the City of Brenham and are under the direction of the Brenham Police Department. The Brenham Pet Adoption Center houses only dogs and cats that are available for adoption or are in stray holding, waiting to go into the adoption program.


For after hours emergencies, call Washington County Dispatch at 979-277-7373. Animal Control Officers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for after-hours call outs for animal bites, stray animals that have been contained, injured animals that are still alive, and assisting with animals in a vehicle where the driver is placed under arrest or has been involved in an accident.
