Devine Animal Control is in need of blankets and large towels, not just during the cold months, but throughout the year. In addition to providing extra warmth when needed, they are used for injured pets, female dogs or cats in heat and for any other need that arises. To address a misconception, the City has always had electric heaters on separate thermostats for each one of our 12 Kennels. We also have two spare heaters and thermostats.

Devine – Small City – Big Heart – Great Future
Devine is a small community that offers the country life. The City name “Devine” is known for the slogan “The Name Says It All”. Devine is known to be a Divine Place to live.
Devine was established in 1881 as a result of the rail extension of the International-Great Northern Railroad from San Antonio to Laredo.The town was named after Judge Thomas Jefferson Devine from San Antonio, who was a jurist and an attorney for the railroad. Devine was incorporated on October 15, 1907. The town’s close proximity to San Antonio has made it a choice location for those wishing to live near the city, but who still want to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that a rural community can bring.
