My story

Hi my name is Kiwi, I came to the shelter as a stray in November of 2021. I'm nervous with new people and can take a while to warm up. Once I get to know you, I'm very playful and energetic. I am would do best in a home without cats.

More about this shelter

The Chico Animal Shelter is owned by the City of Chico and operated by the City of Chico Police Department. We take in all stray dogs found in the incorporated area of the City of Chico. People wishing to surrender their dogs are asked to call the shelter to make an appointment. The shelter does not impound healthy stray cats, including feral or trapped cats. Please see our website for more information about stray cats, and where to surrender owned cats. Although we are an open admission shelter, we follow the state policy that no adoptable animal should be euthanized. To that end, we work with rescue groups, humane societies and other organizations to adopt out animals.
