Animal Control

Supervisor – Karen Kessler


The Animal Control Division is responsible for animal issues in the unincorporated portions of Parker County.  These include animals running at large, estray livestock, rabies control, and enforcement of the leash law.

There is a county-wide leash law in Parker County, meaning all dogs must be contained to your property or on a leash at all times within the county.  Any dogs not on a leash or contained within their property are subject to being impounded and taken to the Weatherford/Parker County Animal Shelter in Weatherford.

If you have lost a pet you need to call or go by the shelter to see if your pet is there.  Any resident of ParkerCounty who finds a lost pet is encouraged to take the animal to the shelter.   If you are unable to transport the animal to the shelter contact Animal Control through the Sheriff’s Office dispatch at (817) 594-8845 and they will be able to take the animal to the shelter.

The Weatherford/Parker County Animal Shelter is funded by both the City of Weatherford and Parker County, but the operation is strictly under the control of the City of Weatherford.

The Parker County Animal Shelter is located at:

403 Hickory Lane
Weatherford, Texas 76086
(817) 598-4111 [voice]
