Anyone interested in adopting must be 18 years or older and bring a valid form of ID.

About Siskiyou County Animal Control


The mission of the Siskiyou County Animal Control Department is to provide effective Animal Control Services through the following:

· Promote responsible animal ownership by providing education and outreach to the citizens of Siskiyou County about proper animal care and control.

· Educate the citizens of Siskiyou County regarding state laws and county ordinances in order to foster a safer community for people and animals.

· Spay or neuter unwanted or displaced animals and adopt them into loving permanent homes.


As part of law enforcement it is our duty and privilege to serve the people and animals of Siskiyou County. Animal Control’s purpose is to ensure the health and safety of the county residents and animal populations. We take complaints of cruelty and inhumane treatment of animals very seriously and investigate all complaints of such treatment. We support the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats to help prevent animal over population in Siskiyou County, thus increasing the likelihood that more animals will have lifelong homes.

Animal Control has endeavored to adopt a no kill philosophy and has increased the live release rate from our Shelter to more than 90%! The majority of animals entering our facility are either redeemed by owners, sent to partner rescues, or adopted into new and loving homes.
