Come Meet our Pets:

All of our animals are current on vaccinations, dewormed, flea treated, the felines are tested for feline aids and leukemia, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Check in monthly for kitty and dog adoption promotions. Stop in and see our facility. The cats live in what we like to call "Cat Condos," which are rooms varying in size containing anywhere from 10 to 30 cats. We do have a room containing cats living with feline aids (FIV), they are available for adoption and we require that they be adopted out to homes that already have cats with FIV, or single cat homes. We also prefer that these cats be indoor only pets, to prevent spread of the illness. We also have a condo of senior cats, ranging in age, from 8 to 18. We have two condos containing feral and semi-feral cats. These cats are available for adoption and are mostly used as “mousers.” One other special condo we have is the declawed condo. We keep all the declawed cats together to prevent injury or bullying. If you have any questions about our facility or animals available for adoption please call our cat adoption center, (559)233-8554.


Valley Animal Center is a no-kill adoption center; we also offer low cost spaying, neutering and vaccinations at our clinic. The adoption centers are open seven days a week from 10am to 4:30pm. Our Clinic is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 4:30pm, they offer vaccinations on a walk-in basis and scheduled appointments for spay and neutering of cats and dogs.

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.
