Important Note:

Not every animal that is available for adoption from the Little Rock Animal Village is posted online. For example, puppies and kittens are rarely listed because they get adopted so quickly, but the Village always has them! Also, the staff at LRAV stay VERY busy and uploading pictures to Petfinder is a fairly low priority compared to their other responsibilities to the animals in their care. So there are always a lot more animals at LRAV in need of homes than you see listed here.


Please be advised that Petfinder only updates once a day overnight, so some of the pets you see here may no longer be available. You can call the Little Rock Animal Village at to confirm their status.

If you are looking for a lost pet, we strongly encourage you to visit the Animal Village in person to look for them. Pets are only posted online once they are available for adoption, which occurs after their seven day "stray hold" has ended. And again, not all pets currently at LRAV are listed.

After taking a year off due to COVID, the popular Rent-A-Puppy event will return to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on Friday, April  

The UA Little Rock community will have the opportunity to play and socialize with rescue and shelter dogs of all ages from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 16 in the Chi Omega Courtyard outside Ottenheimer Library.

Rent-A-Puppy offers dog rescue and shelter organizations in central Arkansas some public exposure and gives their adoptable dogs an opportunity to receive affection and, potentially, new homes.

Attendees may rent a dog for 10 minutes for $5. Toys will be provided, and dogs will be on leashes. Also new to this year’s event is Paws for Wishes. For $10, participants may enter their pet in the pet pageant. Winners will be announced via social media. 

UA Little Rock’s Chi Omega Gamma Zeta chapter organizes the event, which raises funds for the Make-A-WishFoundation, one of the focuses of the chapter’s philanthropy. The national nonprofit organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Potentially Dangerous Breeds

In February , the Little Rock City Board of Directors passed an ordinance requiring individuals within the City of Little Rock who are owners of certain breeds of dogs to register these animals. The dogs that must be registered are those with a primary breed that is American Pit Bull Terrier, American Straffordshire Terrier or Straffordshire Terrier. These must be registered at the Little Rock Animal Village, Kramer Street.  

The requirements and documents needed for registration of a "Potentially Dangerous Dog" are as follows:

  • Proof of Spay or Neuter (or Veterinarian documentation of medical condition that would not allow sterilization, confirmed by the Veterinarian of Little Rock Animal Services)
  • Photo with owner will be taken at the Animal Village. Dog must be present at registration so that the photo can be taken.
  • Micro Chipping of Dog
  • Current Rabies Vaccination
  • Current City License
  • $ Fee (per Animal) for Registration is Required
  • All Dogs of these Breeds must be Confined by a Fence or in a Structure.

Download Application for Potentially Dangerous Dogs

Note: A maximum of Two (2) dogs of these breeds will be allowed to be owned.

Be a responsible pet owner!

  • Make sure your pet is always wearing its tag.
  • Follow all animal ordinances for your pet's safety and for your own.
  • Have your pet checked regularly by a veterinarian, and make sure your pet is current on all vaccinations.
  • Provide adequate confinement for your pet. A properly fenced dog will not be in danger of being hit by a car or possibly contracting disease.
  • Take heed of weather conditions. Just like humans, pets are sensitive to extreme temperatures.
  • For more information on properly caring for your pet, call your veterinarian.
  • Adopt-A-Pet: The Animal Village has a number of dogs and cats that need loving homes. Visit our facility to meet some of our eligible animals. Our adoption fee is $ Give a lonely dog or cat a home. You'll be saving a life and gaining a best friend!
  • Volunteer: Our volunteers are indispensable, and there are never enough of them. We need extra help in adoption services, foster care, and a variety of other animal services. Call our facility, or come by for a visit anytime.
  • Children must be taught how to properly treat our furry friends. Teaching a child responsibility and respect for animals reduces the chance of animal bites and scratches, and makes them a responsible pet owner in the future. 
  • Animal Service Officers work to protect you. The Animal Services Staff appreciates your cooperation with animal control situations.
  • Your pet cannot talk. If he is lost, the only hope of identifying him is his city dog license or a microchip. You should have a picture of your pet, as well as a description including height, weight, age, color and distinctive markings. These items will help us determine whether or not your pet is in our care.

Little Rock Animal Services offers a volunteer workshop every 2nd Saturday of the month. This workshop will entail an intense look at Animal Services and the Animal Shelter to give citizens an in-depth look at the challenges that face staff daily in public safety, animal welfare, animal care as well as adoptions. This program will allow staff to better care for the animals in custody of the City as well as inform citizens on ordinances and proper animal care.

Little Rock Animal Services's Adoption Process

The adoption fee is $ Veterinary services for dogs include: First exam, Worm check, Worming (if necessary), First vaccinations, Rabies inoculation (city license purchase is not included), First antibiotics, Spay or Neuter, and Heartworm check. Veterinary services for cats include: First exam, Worm check, Worming (if necessary), First Vaccinations, Rabies Inoculation (city license purchase is not included), First antibiotics, Spay or Neuter, Feline leukemia exam, and Feline FIV (older cats). Note: If adopter is in the City of Little Rock, a $10 city license is required.

All animals listed on this website are available for adoption, unless there is a future "Available:" date listed in the animal details section. If the "Available:" date has not past, the animal can still be visited.

Be sure to have the ID number so LRAS will know what animals you are referring to.

You will want to take him or her out of the kennel area, and go outside. Please be aware that when they are comfortable in a home, they will relax, and their personality will be different than in the shelter.

When you are ready to adopt the LRAS policy is first come - first serve. You cannot reserve an animal for adoption. An Adoption Application is required. The animals can be adopted at a.m., Tuesday-Saturday on their available date.

It is a state law that an animal can not leave a shelter until sterilized (Arkansas Code I (1). For animals needing sterilization, they will be altered at the next available time by the LRAS veterinarian. If the animal is too young or sick to be altered, the vet will sign a medical waiver and give a date the animal can be returned to be altered.

About Little Rock Animal Services

Come Meet Little Rock Animal Services's Pets

Little Rock Animal Village is open Tuesday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Kennels open for viewing at a.m. If you are interested in a specific animal, you can come at 8 a.m. The shelter is located at Kramer St. is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Little Rock, AR.

Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
