Animal Welfare

The Purcell Animal Welfare Division is the Animal Control and Animal Shelter group within the Purcell Police Department.   Purcell Animal Welfare believes that every cat and dog deserves a loving and lifelong home. If you are looking to add a pet to your life, please consider adopting a homeless animal from our shelter. All of our animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The adoption fee is $65 for dogs and $60 for cats. This includes all age appropriate vaccinations, de-worming and flea/tick treatments.
