No Kill

Since March 2018 the Rosenberg Animal Shelter and Control has committed to becoming a No-Kill facility by the year 2020.


Since July 2018, Rosenberg Animal Control and Shelter began working towards the No Kill goal with the support of community partners, such as Fort Bend Pets Alive!, as well as our growing volunteers program.


Some of the points of the No Kill Plan that have been implemented are:

  • Additional resources were allocated to medical and behavior support for shelter pets
  • Redesign the volunteer program to move it to fully online and support the business model
  • Rebuild the Rosenberg Animal Control and Shelter Foster Program, with additional groups to support:
    • Long Term Fostering
    • Medical Fostering
    • Terminal Fostering
  • Rosenberg Animal Control and Shelter has been building a robust adoption program through:
    • an aggressive marketing and media strategy
    • increasing monthly adoption promotions
    • off-site adoptions
  • Rosenberg Animal Control and Shelter working towards providing low price microchips and vaccination clinics for any pet in the Rosenberg City limits
