We serve all of Madera county. We're the only shelter in the county.

About Our Shelter:

Madera County Animal Control is the only shelter in the county. We take in all types of animals and try very hard to place as many as possible.
We still have a very high euthanasia rate and hope this information on Save A pet will will help.

Come Meet our Pets:

Most adoptions are from the shelter. Many also get adopted through our arrangement with PetsMart. They allow us to keep cats there all week for adoption and give us space on Sundays to bring in dogs. We also have Super Adoption events annually in Fresno with many other groups involved.

Our Adoption Process:

Fees are $100 for dogs which includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, and $10 microchipping.

Cats are $60 which includes the same as above.

We require a simple application and adoption agreement.

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.
