Animal Control

Recently there were items published on a non-approved, non-city sponsored page about the Sansom Park Animal Shelter. This page is and continues to be the only Official City of Sansom Park Animal Shelter page. The City of Sansom Park strives to have a 100% adoption/rescue rate of all unclaimed animals. The City of Sansom Park does not currently charge for animal adoptions.  

( For low-cost spay and neuter options check out the page for the Texas Coalition for Animal Protection at the link below )
