Solano County Animal Care Donations

The Sheriff’s Office proudly accepted responsibility for the county animal shelter in 2011.  Since then we have made many positive strides.  We are dedicated to the service of our residents and welfare of all animals residing in Solano County. 

Most recently we are excited to announce the opening of a 12,500 square foot expansion which includes, spacious canine kennels, charming feline condos, a public vaccination clinic and low cost spay/neuter clinic.  We are working towards a common goal to increase our live release rate, increase animal to owner reunification and decrease euthanasia. 

All donations will be used solely for animal enrichment to ensure those animals in our care a more pleasant stay at the shelter and/or raise public awareness on the benefits of spay and neutering their pets.  The benefits of spay/neuter not only include reducing the unwanted animal population in our area but increases the life span of our beloved pets and decrease late in life illness caused by lack of alteration.
