Reclaim Fees

Owners of pets in violation of the Longview leash law are subject to reclaim fees as well as potential citations.  

Found Strays

Stray animals found within the City Limits of Longview, Gregg County, City of Kilgore, City of Gladewater or City of White Oak, are to be brought to the Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center within a timely manner to facilitate reuniting them with their owners. Keeping stray animals in your home significantly reduces the animals opportunity to be reunited with its family.
