Animal Services is excited to announce that we are extending our business hours as of December 3, 2013. This will include being open to the public on Tuesdays, adding a whole day for everyone to come in for business and/or to look at our wonderful companion animals that are available for adoption. Saturdays have always been good days for adoptions here at the shelter and we are hoping that by extending our Saturday hours, we will be able to create an opportunity for more pets to meet their forever families.

Our new business hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 1pm and 2pm until 4pm.

We are always thrilled when we have people interested in adopting. If you plan to do so, may we ask you to come in at least 30 minutes before we close to allow for enough time for a good conversation about the companion animal and to finalize the paperwork.

During these hours we also offer to microchip your pet, something everyone should consider as this microchip is dramatically increasing the chances to reunite pets and owners when and if they are separated. If you plan to microchip your companion animal, please come to our office some 30 minutes before we close.

Thank you!


Animal Control Information

Calaveras County allows 3 dogs and/or 4 cats without having a Kennel License or Animal Permit. Please call for details and information on how to obtain an Animal Permit or Kennel License. 

Calaveras County has a control law which states in part that the dog must be kept under the owner's control at all times either by a fence, wall, substantial chain or leash, other appropriate physical restraint, or under the immediate control of the owner. 

We administer domestic Animal Control. Predatory animals (wild) should be reported to the County Trapper at (209)754-6504 and all other wild animal problems to the Department of Fish and Game. 

Dog licenses may be obtained by mail or in person. They are sold for a one year period from the month purchased. 

We do not have an in house vet, please call your veterinarian for spaying and neutering services and fees.
