About Us 

The North Richland Hills Animal Adoption & Rescue Center (AARC) is owned and operated by the City of North Richland Hills with support from our community. AARC exists to help protect the health, safety and welfare of both people and animals in the community.

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. Our staff has been recognized both at the state and national level for outstanding excellence in both programs and performance of duties.

AARC Events


The Animal Adoption & Rescue Center would like to invite you to our one year birthday celebration on May 7, 2016. It will be a come and go event with snacks and goodie bags for visitors (while supplies last). If you adopted a pet from the Adoption Center, please come by either the Adoption Center or Unleashed by PetCo located at 9147 Boulevard 26 on May 7 with your pet so we can get a current photo for our Facebook page and give you a ‘birthday’ gift.

Half Price Adoptions: In celebration of our one year birthday in our new home and the grand opening of our new City Hall Complex, adoption fees will be cut in half starting May 7 through May 14. Adopters will get a goodie bag with samples and coupons and the first 25 adopters will get a PetCo Foundation postcard redeemable at Unleashed by PetCo for a coupon book (a $650 value) and a stylish reusable bag.

Birthday Wish List: If you'd like to bring a birthday gift to the animals at the Adoption Center, some of the items on the Birthday Wish List are:

  • canned kitten food, dry kitten food;
  • dishwashing liquid, odor ban deodorizer, newspapers;
  • empty clean aluminum cans, shirt gift boxes;
