The City of Nederland has one Animal Control Officer. The officer works at the
direction of the Chief of Police.
A new animal shelter is being constructed near the intersection of Canal and 17th
Street. It is expected to be complete by the end of 2003. This new shelter meets
Texas Department of Health requirements for animal shelters. The new shelter will
provide a safe, comfortable, temporary home for dogs waiting for their owners to
pick them up.
City of Nederland animal control ordinances require that when a dog is off of its owner's
property, it must be on a leash. Please be responsible and keep your dog controlled at
all times. This not only protects the safety and rights of other citizens, but keeps
your pet safe and prevents the pet from being lost. Whether you own a dog or a cat,
remember to have your pet spayed or neutered.
