Shelter FAQs

California City Animal Shelter is a city shelter run the Police Department. It is staffed by 1 full time animal control officer, 1 part time kennel worker and a few volunteers.

The shelter has 18 dog kennels and 14 cat cages. The city is 203.6 sq miles mostly open desert and has become, unfortunately a dumping ground. This shelter/animal control only serves the California City area. This shelter does not take pets from surrounding areas, only California City city limits.

Out of area adoptions/rescues are okay.

Our shelter is located in a very rural area with limited foot traffic.
