Dog Services

Dog Services will be closed Monday, Sept. 25

Dog Services will be closed Monday, Sept. 25, for staff training.  People who wish to reclaim dogs may do so between 8:30-10:30 a.m. 

We provide dog shelter, stray care, adoptions, and lost and found services. We reunite owners with lost dogs and match adoptable dogs with good homes. Is your home a good match for one of our dogs?

Licensing your dog will help us reunite you should your dog become lost. Licensing also helps pay for the care of homeless animals while we attempt to find them a new home. If you are on any sort of government assistance, you are eligible to receive a voucher for a no-cost spay or neuter and a rabies vaccine when purchasing a one-year dog license. Purchase or renew a license.

Free microchipping, rabies vaccination for licensed dogs

We offer free microchipping dogs on the fourth Saturday of every month between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. for county-licensed dogs. We also offer free rabies vaccinations when purchasing or renewing a license at the clinic. Microchipping and rabies vaccine details.

Free testing for Canine Good Citizen certification

Starting in April, you can have your dog tested for the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification at our shelter for free. Review testing information.

License your dog. It's the law.

Is barking a problem?

Continuously barking dogs can be an annoying neighborhood problem. Our barking dog resolution program is designed to resolve issues related to continuous barking.

If your dog is barking excessively, consult our guide to why dogs bark.

Dog waste management 

If pet waste is left on the ground, it may eventually make its way into a nearby storm drain or stream the next time it rains.
