Texas Litter Control strives to conquer the pet overpopulation problem by providing low cost services to the general public.
We set up Texas Litter Control to service the many animals and people in need within our great community. The goal is to help our local shelters and general public by providing much needed low cost spay/neuter services. Everything about Texas Litter Control is set up to accommodate the needs of the animals and to make the clinics as comfortable as possible. I hope you find our clinics as awesome as we try to make them. If you like our service, please help us get the word out about low cost spay/neuter and how important it is to fix your pets! If you found issue with anything, please let me know. We are always trying to improve our service levels. We look forward to serving you and your pets!

*Texas Litter Control counts all animals we accept for adoption and into sanctuary including neonatal kittens and terminally ill cats with just a few months to live. All lives matter to us. We do not euthanize unless an animal is suffering with no other option. Any cat who dies in our care are counted in other outcomes and count against our save rate including sanctuary animals. 2018 was a terrible year for our organization as far as disease outbreak. We were hit hard with a panleuk outbreak as a result from the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey. We lost over 40 cats and kittens to this outbreak.
Texas Litter Control is a contributor to Shelter Animals Count. We believe in idea that the more data shared between organizations, the better for the animals!
