A list of animals at our shelter can be found on websites:
If you do not see your pet listed on those sites, please still contact the shelter, the websites listed above are often slow to update.
If you have found a pet, and are willing to house it until contact is made with the Shelter, you may do so. We encourage anyone doing this, to take the pet to a nearby veterinary office or the shelter, to have it scanned for a microchip. Please realize if you decide to keep the pet in your home during the 6 full business days holding period, you must report the pet to us, and you accept responsibility for it during that time.
If your pet has been injured after normal veterinary business hours, there is a 24 hour Veterinary Clinic located in Chico. If you have found an injured pet, please know that if you deiced to take it to the veterinarian, you are assuming financial responsibility.
