The City of Salinas Animal Shelter is responsible for the collection and shelter of stray and unwanted animals within the city limits. We also have a great adoption program.The Animal Shelter is a great place to get your new pet because we take care and pre-screen the animals we place for adoption and we help you find a pet that will fit your needs and lifestyle. We want you and your pet to live happily together.
Come Meet Our Pets...
To get to the shelter, follow Hwy. 68 or Davis Rd. to Hitchcock Rd. There is a large sign by the road. Turn and follow the one lane road about 300 yards until the road curves left. The Salinas Animal Shelter is a white building. Note that as you come to the one lane road you will see large billboard cutouts of a a German Shephard puppy and a kitten cutout next to a animal shelter on your right. That is NOT our shelter; it is the Monterey County animal Shelter. You will find us at the end of the road.
Our Adoption Process...
We are open Tusdays through Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
