Animal Care Support

Effective Thursday, March 20th we will only offer limited services by appointment to reduce the foot traffic to the shelter to protect employees and the public. Until further notice we will not be offering the following services:

  • Rabies vaccinations & Microchipping
  • In person dog licensing (you can register or renew here online)
  • Spay/neuter appointments
  • Trap rentals (if you currently have a trap you need to return please call for a time to drop it off)
  • Visiting the shelter to look at animals to adopt (you can see the available animals here, and fill out an adoption application here)
  • Owner surrenders (we ask you to hold off during this time or we can provide you with rehoming resources via email)
  • Please avoid bringing in stray cats, unless they are sick or injured. They are likely to find their way home if you leave them where they are. We are trying to keep our number of healthy animals low to respond to this temporary plan of limited staffing. If you see a stray kitten we ask that you leave it where it is so that its mother can come back for it. Only bring in kittens if you know the mother is not coming back or has not been back for a whole day.

While these are very important services, we feel we cannot safely perform them and maintain the social distancing recommendations issued by the CDC. Many of our services can be found here. Online you can: see animals that are in the shelter, fill out an adoption application, license your dog, and fill out a barking complaint.  

Continue to visit this website for updates or give us a call at 619-476-2477. We will be answering the phone from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. to field questions and potentially make an appointment for you to come in for critical services like identifying a lost pet. For Animal Control please contact 619-476-2476.

We thank you for your patience, flexibility and cooperation during such a trying time. We will resume additional services as soon as possible while continuing to emphasize social distancing to limit risk to all.
