Please help us in getting our shelter dogs adopted by coming to the Ukiah Animal Shelter from the dates of April 3, 2018 through April 28, 2018 and adopting one of our wonderful dogs for the low price of $50.00.  Mendocino County residents will be required to pay an additional $25.00 for a Pet License.

All dogs come spayed or neutered along with all the required vaccinations.  This low adoption fee results in over a $100.00 in cost savings.  

Only our current spayed or neutered dogs in our kennel inventory are available for the reduced adoption price.  Unfortunately, no discounts will be given for puppies.

Please feel free to visit our adoptable shelter dogs at: http://www.mendoanimalshelter.com

Thank you.
