Coyotes have been spotted in Sugar Land and it is important to remember that they are wildlife and co-exist with us. Coyotes are density breeders so removing them encourages them to more rapidly reproduce, leading to an increase in their population. It is not uncommon to see coyotes during the daytime.
Follow these safety tips:
Do not leave pets unattended in yards
Walk dogs on leashes, not long-range retractable leashes
Do not let your cat free-roam: this is against city ordinance and unnecessarily exposes pets to wildlife
Use noise such as air horns or throwing rocks to scare away coyotes
Keep compost piles covered to prevent scavenging
Do not feed wildlife on the ground - keep wild bird seed elevated
For any concerns, contact 311 or 2810275-2900.

Sugar Land's Animal Shelter is over capacity due to a large number of dogs in our care. Effective immediately, the shelter is unable to accept dogs from residents.
This measure is being implemented to ensure the proper level of care is provided to pets currently housed in the shelter, as specified in the protocols established by our advisory board.
We greatly appreciate donations of towels and blankets, but we are unable to utilize pillows or bed toppers. Stains are not an issue, but we do ask that items be clean with no holes/rips.
