About Animal Services

The Fremont Police Department's Animal Services Unit manages the Tri-City Animal Shelter which shelters animals found in Fremont, Union City and Newark. Union City and Newark have their own Animal Services Officers who respond to animal related concerns within their city. Tri-City Animal Shelter staff reunite lost pets with their owners, provide care for injured animals and license pets residing in Fremont. Animal Services Officers respond to animal-related calls for service from citizens of the City of Fremont.


Tri City Animal Shelter and Fremont Animal Services’ mission is to promote and support keeping people with their pets by offering services and resources with respect, kindness and compassion and to provide safe shelter and care for animals lost from their homes or in need of finding a new home.  Our programs and services protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Tri-City area, providing a benefit to all citizens regardless of race, age or economic status.
