Due to the Veterans Day Holiday being observed on Monday - November 12, 2018 by Mendocino County and because the Animal Shelter is closed to the public on Monday's, the Animal Shelter will be closed on Tuesday - November 13, 2018. 

We will be back open for business on Wednesday - November 14, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.



Animal Care Services Mobile Spay & Neuter Caravan was the recipient of a $700.00 donation from the President of Bug A Bull Education & Rescue Organization Peri Partington-Judge on July 11, 2018.  The donated funds will be allocated to assist in the spaying & neutering of Bully Breed dogs.  

The donation originated due the generosity of a Bug A Bull Education & Rescue Organization member requesting that friends donate to the cause of spay & neuter Bully Breed dogs instead of them receiving birthday presents.   

Animal Care Services Senior Program Specialist who operates the Mobile Spay & Neuter Caravan will ensure that the donated funds find the applicable dogs while conducting Spay & Neuter Clinics throughout Mendocino County. 

Animal Care Services greatly appreciates the donation.

Kittens are available for adoption.  Please stop by and take a look at these little fur-balls.  The cost for one kitten is only $50.00 and $75.00 for two.  :))  Only applicable for kittens that have already been spayed or neutered. 





Please contact the Animal Shelter at 463-4427 to schedule bringing in any owned or feral cat or kitten.

We greatly appreciate the assistance of the public in helping us work through this situation.

Thank you.
