Available Animals

Kennels are open for viewing during regular shelter hours. Not all animals are available for adoption. Available animals have already passed our behavior evaluation and completed the minimum hold required by law. If you see an animal you are interested in, please ask about it at the front counter.

Why Do I Need to Pay the Fees to Adopt?

Under California law, all dogs and cats must be spayed or neutered before release and it is shelter policy to extend this requirement to rabbits as well. Microchips are required for adopted pets. Fees are determined by services rendered for the animal and are subject to change. For example, if the animal was previously altered or too young for a rabies vaccination, the appropriate cost will be deducted from your total. Additional fees may apply to certain animals if other services are deemed necessary. The Tri-City Animal Shelter is not responsible for any additional vet services or fees.
