Animal Surrender

Dog Relinquish

If at any time either a resident or non-resident of the City of Jacksboro needs to surrender ownership of his/her dog to the Jacksboro Animal Shelter, he/she may do so. There is a nominal fee for this service in order to compensate the city for the costs associated with the care of the dog until we can adopt it out to a loving home. 

Relinquishment forms can be obtained at City Hall or through the animal control officer. For additional information about relinquishment, please contact City Hall at 940-567-6321.

Relinquish Fees

The fees for dog relinquishment are:
  • $20 per dog inside the city limits
  • $30 per dog outside the city limits
