About Us

Stillwater Animal Welfare, a department of the Stillwater Police Department, serves the community in many ways. One of the department’s primary responsibilities is operating an animal shelter that cares for strays and pets that have been surrendered. The shelter serves residents living within the Stillwater city limits.

Animal Welfare Officers pick up animals running at large and attempt to find their owners or, if they remain unclaimed, to find adoptive homes for them. Our officers, along with the Stillwater Police Department, also enforce city code related to animals and investigate reports of cruelty and neglect.

We accept dogs, cats, ferrets, domestic mice and rats, guinea pigs, and some reptiles. We also take in stray chickens and have picked up the occasional goat.  Most farm animals are rehomed outside the city limits. We encourage anyone to reach out to us if they have a question about rehoming a pet so we can share all of the resources we have.
