Available Animals

Adoption Update: 

Virtual adoptions and in-person adoptions are now available. Meet and greets are available on a limited basis as volunteer staffing is available. You can call 925-608-8400 and have the Animal ID number ready for more information about our available pets.

Our staff and volunteers are standing by to provide additional information. They will respond to online applications in the order in which they are received, usually within 72 hours. There is no guarantee that the animal you apply for online will still be available by the time our adoption counselors are able to reach you.

All "Available" animals are eligible for adoption to the public only, and not eligible to transfer to a rescue, until 12:00pm the day after they are made "Available," with the exception of pit bulls and kittens/puppies four (4) months and under.
