Welcome to the City of Hurst Animal Services. Our goal is to provide services to the public promptly and with professional precision tempered with compassion for those animals that can not speak for themselves. The Humane Division has been recognized both at the state and national level for outstanding excellence in both programs and performance of duties. Hurst Animal Services also adheres to the five freedoms:
Freedom from hunger and thirst by ready access to fresh water and diet to maintain health and vigor.
Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
