COVID-19 Change in services: Animal Shelter adoptions continue with new COVID-19 safety measures in place. If you're interested in adopting a pet from the shelter, follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. See a pet you are interested in online? Call (916) 687-3042 or email with the Animal ID number to be placed on an Interested Party list. Staff will let you know what number you are on the list.
  2. If/when you become first on that list, a staff member will call you to complete adoption counseling over the phone.
  3. A Meet and Greet appointment will be scheduled. Staff has put into place some social-distancing measures putting some space between you and the shelter staff (not the pets). If it's love, you take them home right then!
