To professionally provide community safety through education and enforcement while caring for the animals.It is the objective of the City of Cibolo's Animal Services Department, to protect public health and welfare while enforcing humane animal treatment while operating within the City of Cibolo's Ordinances and County, State, and Federal regulations. This is accomplished by providing safe, humane shelter for unwanted, stray, abused animals. Cibolo Animal Services also educates the public about responsible animal care, pet ownership, and living with wildlife in hopes of reducing the number of unwanted animals in the community.
The largest part of the Animal Service Officer's job is enforcement. The City of Cibolo has a number of ordinances pertaining to animals. Ordinances address dogs and cats running at large, excessive number of animals, unreasonably noisy animals, livestock/ fowl, and dangerous animals. Animal Services enforces city ordinances as well as County, State, and Federal animal-related regulations. See municipal code Chapter 10 for further information.
Animal bites involving domestic animal (canine, feline, ferret) to human and/or animal to high-risk wildlife (raccoon, bat, skunk, fox, coyote). Domestic animal to domestic animal will be investigated for violations only. Our Animal Control Officers are the Local Rabies Control authority and can mandate quarantine of any animal involved in a bite.

Cruelty/ Welfare Investigations

Traps are on a first-come, first-served basis with a $40 deposit and a $2 per day rental. Call 210-659-4851 to reserve a trap. Animal Services will service citizen-owned traps.
Deceased Animal Removal
Animal Services provides deceased animal removal on public property and city-maintained roadways. For animal removal on state-maintained roadways, contact the Texas Department of Transportation. Removal on private property is the responsibility of the owner or resident. For questions, contact Animal Services at 210-658-4851.
Any canine or feline that is more than four months of age is required to have a current rabies vaccination and to have a microchip implanted. The cost of the microchip is $15 and includes registration. If the animal is current on the rabies vaccination and already has a microchip implanted, there is no cost, but proof of the rabies vaccination and the microchip number are required for registration. Registration must be renewed, whenever the rabies vaccination expires, so records can be verified as correct and updated as needed. Registration and microchipping can be performed in person at the Cibolo Animal Services at 108 Cibolo Drive Building 300. For questions on this process, please contact Cibolo Animal Services at 210-659-4851. All pets should wear a current rabies tag at all times.Quick Links
