Code Enforcement and Kennel

pet adoption

The City of De Soto is happy to announce the opening of the Animal Control Kennel, here our code enforcement officer will work with the community and rescue organizations to find a home for dogs and cats found and not claimed by their rightful owners.

Currently the City charges a $50 Non-Refundable Deposit to begin the adoption process.  After the paperwork is completed the Code Officer takes the pet to the Vet and brings it current on vaccinations and spayed or neutered.  The cost of these services are discounted and the adopter is responsible for those fees.  Once the paperwork is completed and fees are paid the animal goes to its new home with you.
