Town of Little Elm residents can bring their pets to the shelter for euthanasia anytime during our regular shelter hours. **We do not provide euthanasia services on Saturdays.
The owner must sign a euthanasia request form pay a $35 fee to perform this service. We request that residents bring their animals to the shelter. A humane lethal injection performs all euthanasia, and the remains are then cremated. Owners may not be present when euthanasia is performed, and no private cremations are offered. If the owner wants a private cremation or for remains to be returned to them, they must make arrangements with one of the local private crematories and let us know which company will be coming to pick the remains up when the animal arrives is brought to the shelter.
