Bexar County Animal Care

BCAF signThe Bexar County Animal Facility (BCAF) is the county’s only shelter to house animals for Bexar County Animal Control Services. Created in late 2013, the department helps constituents of the unincorporated areas of Bexar County with loose animals that cause a threat to health and human life.

The facility is located at 5510 Duffek Drive in Kirby, TX 78219. At that location, we house 60 kennels for stray, abandoned, and abused dogs of unincorporated Bexar County. 

If you suspect your animal has been picked up, please call the BCAF Intake at 210-209-5687.

To report stray dogs, residents of unincorporated Bexar County should call our Animal Control Dispatch at 210-335-9000.

Animal cruelty is handled by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. If you suspect animal cruelty, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 210-335-6000; press option 1.
