Animal Services will continue to practice enhanced safety modifications, including requiring staff and guests to wear face coverings when entering the building and when conversing with others. Staff and guests will also be required to conduct a brief health screening and a no-contact temperature check. Following CDC guidelines, Animal Services will deny entry to anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher.

If you believe your lost animal may be at the Town shelter, please call (760) 240-7555, or visit and click on Adopt a Pet.

All interested adopters must complete the AVAS adoption application in full and submit by 4:00pm the day prior to the pet’s available date and submit via e-mail. If there are multiple applicants, the adopter will be chosen by random drawing then contacted if they have won the drawing to schedule a meet and greet with your family and any dogs in the household. Meet and greets will be completed by appointment only, with an approved adoption application.

AVAS staff will work with interested adopters/rescuers to determine the best placement for animals in our care. The priority will be placement into a permanent loving home.
