About Our Shelter:

Petaluma Animal Services is a city shelter providing shelter and care for stray and owned dogs, cats, rabbits and other domestic pets. We enforce city and state regulations, conduct investigations, help with wildlife problems, provide help with behavior questions, and maintain the city's dog licensing. We have many wonderful animals for adoption, and also have an incredibly dedicated volunteer staff to help work with our animals. We have a large foster program as well, providing homes for animals that otherwise wouldn't be able to go up for adoption. We have a resource library with lots of information on any animal question you might have, open to the public. We have a wonderful non profit group, Friends of Petaluma Animal Shelter (FOPAS) that contributes money to us for animal use, such as collars/leashes, toys/food for adoptions, treats and toys for all the animals during their stay with us, all the way to scales for our clinic to help us better treat our animals under their care.

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.
