Help! There isn’t much color in our Animal Shelter lobby or get acquainted rooms so we need the community’s help to transform it. The Animal Shelter Beautification Project invites artists of all ages to submit images of their original artwork to be considered for a mural on the walls of the shelter lobby or the get acquainted rooms.
Attached is a complete list of rules for artists wanting to submit their artwork. The deadline to submit artwork will be Jan. 31. 2021 at 11:59 p.m. All artwork is to be submitted digitally on our website: https://www.cityoftyler.org/government/departments/animal-services.
In 2017, Tyler Animal Services opened its doors to the public in a restructured facility that houses both the City’s Animal Shelter and Animal Control Department, located at 4218 Chandler Hwy. The facility also houses 103 dog kennels and 65 cat kennels for holding, isolation and display. The City’s shelter features “get acquainted” rooms for people to come in, meet with shelter staff and their potential pet for some time to “get acquainted.”
In 2019, 482 pets were adopted, 492 were reunited with their owners and 349 animals were transferred to 110 different rescue organization partners. There were 1,172 microchips registered to responsible pet owners.
