Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Los Banos Shelter houses animals from within the city limits. Our animals came to our shelter as either strays (running loose) or as owner surrendered.
We hold animals for 5 days - on the 5th day the animal may be adopted, sent to rescue or possibly euthanzied. Please do not wait until the 5th day when inquiring about an animal.
The Los Banos Volunteers for Animals is the support organization that provides auxillary care of the animals as well as administrative duties.

About Our Shelter:

Our volunteer group has been helping the animals in the Los Banos shelter for over 15 years. We handle all adoptions, assist in the care of the animals, assist with medical care and treatment. Due to severe budget cuts over the last few years, much of the administrative and physical labor is handled by volunteers.
We are there to help the animals who have no voice of their own. We work to save as many as we can by networking with rescues and other shelters. We work to educate the public about spaying & neutering and responsible pet care.

Come Meet our Pets:

Adoption hours are Saturday from noon until 4 PM.
Appointments may be made to meet potential adopters for other days. Leave a message on the message machine.

Los Banos Volunteers for Animals volunteers also have dogs and cats at the Los Banos PetCo Saturdays from 10AM to 2PM and some Sundays.

Our Adoption Process:

Our volunteer will ask some questions to get to know you and what type of animal that would best fit with your lifestyle and family. We do have an adoption contract requiring basic care, veterinary care, neutering, and the safety of the animal being adopted.
We do make inquiries to landlords if you are a renter to verify that the property is approved to have a pet. We do require home visits with some animals.
Our adoption fee is $15 in addition to spay or neuter fees (which average $100 to $150 depending on type, sex and weight of the animal).

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
