The County of Santa Clara Animal Services Center is an open-intake shelter that accepts stray and abandoned domestic animals from the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County as well as the cities of Gilroy and Morgan Hill. The Animal Services Center provides shelter to homeless pets, reunites lost pets with their families, facilitates pet adoption and provides volunteer opportunities for those looking for the opportunity to improve the lives of pets in our care.
Our field services division investigates complaints of violations of County and State ordinances within the unincorporated areas of the county. We protect pets in the community by investigating animal cruelty and neglect complaints.
Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of people and animals in our County, and we count on the people of our community to help accomplish that goal.
