Lubbock Animal Shelter is now Lubbock Animal Services (LAS). In changing the name, it is a more educational based organization rather than an enforcement agency.  

Lubbock Animal Services is an open-door shelter that provides lost and found services, animal adoptions, humane education, cruelty investigations, and enforces the laws regarding animals for the City of Lubbock.

It provides a temporary home for puppies and kittens, adult cats and dogs, and just about every other furry, scaly, or feathered species of animal people keep.
