COVID-19 Change in services: Adoptions at the animal shelter continue with new COVID-19 safety measures in place. If you’re interested in adopting a pet from the shelter, please read the following information:

Interested in a dog or adult cat?

  1. Browse our adoptable pets here on the website, or at or
  2. If you see someone you would like to adopt, call us at (916) 687-3042 and press 3 to leave a voicemail in our Adoption Interest Inbox. You must leave your name, phone number, and the Animal ID number of the animal you are interested in to be placed on that animal's interested party list. Please note this is not a guarantee you will receive a call back since some animals are extremely popular and may generate dozens of voicemails.
  3. If/when you become first on the interested party list, a member of our adoption team will call you to provide an over-the-phone adoption consultation. If it seems like a good fit, they will schedule you to come to the shelter for an adoption* appointment.

*Potential adopters will have the opportunity to meet the animal they are interested in before finalizing an adoption.
