Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We only accept animals found within the Antioch city limits. However, you do not have to be a resident of Antioch in order to adopt a pet.

About Our Shelter:

Antioch Animal Services has serviced the city of Antioch since 1979. We are the only city in Contra Costa County to offer its own animal services program. While we serve as an open-door shelter to the residents of Antioch, our animals can be adopted to residents in and out of Antioch.

Animal Services is a division of the Antioch Police department, and houses the cityĺs Animal Control department. Our Animal Control Officers' responsibilities include patrolling the city streets and picking up and confining stray, sick, injured, vicious and deceased animals.

Our public services include low-cost micro chipping, dog licensing, and pet adoptions.

Come Meet our Pets:

Come find a new furry friend to love! All of our loveable animals are available for adoption Tuesday - Thursday from 10:00 am - 5 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 am - 5 pm. Closed Mondays, Fridays and Sundays.

Our Adoption Process:

Once you have identified an animal you are interested in, we will have you spend time getting acquainted with your new friend. Since this will be a family pet, we do require that you bring in your children as well as your other dogs from home, so that we can ensure your new pet gets along with everyone in your family.

Also, be advised that if you rent, we will need to personally contact your landlord to verify that it is OK for you to bring home a pet.

For all dogs and cats, we require that they be spayed or neutered by an Antioch vet before they go home. Adoption fees vary according to the animal you select. Please feel free to speak to a staff member for more information regarding our adoption fees.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
